People often wonder what the rules are when it comes to wearing jewelry on different occasions. Although there are no hard-and-fast guidelines, proper etiquette does suggest certain things be taken into consideration in different scenarios. Following are some things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing jewelry for various situations, what should be avoided, and why.

Everyday Wear

Choose those pieces that are comfortable and wear them every day. For many, this ensemble consists of their wedding band and/or engagement ring and possibly a few other accessories Stud earrings are a good choice along with a simple chain or a wristwatch. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to one’s jewelry on a daily basis. However, most people don’t feel comfortable wearing costly pieces or statement jewelry every day. The exception to this is those individuals who are employed in a trendy workplace. In situations such as this, anything tends to go. Adina’s Jewels has great choices regardless of which category you fall into.

Jewelry at Work

Work is not the place to wear an oversized statement piece unless the workplace is a trendy retailer, nightclub, or something of that nature. One should never over-accessorize in an office environment. Furthermore, the jewelry should blend in with the outfit and not be too flashy. Select pieces that are quiet and won’t distract others as you move around. This is a time to remember when less is more. If there is any doubt, leave the jewelry at home.

 

Formal Events

Formal events are the perfect time to pull out those special pieces and show them off. However, don’t overdo it. Choose one piece that emphasizes your best feature and add to it with coordinating items. Only one oversized piece should be worn so it won’t detract from the overall look. Individuals who wear multiple pieces look like they got into their mom’s jewelry box and tried everything on simultaneously. Don’t choose a set of items to wear either. For example, don’t go out and buy a boxed set of formal jewelry and put all the pieces on at once. This simply looks like you are trying too hard to appear elegant, and you don’t want that.

A Night Out on the Town

For a night out on the town with friends or a significant other, anything goes. Choose those pieces you love and mix and match until you find the right combination. There is one thing to remember as you go about this process. Don’t go overboard, as doing so could turn the focus to the accessories rather than to you and what an amazing person you are. Nevertheless, keep in mind the destination. If you are going to a show, don’t wear jewelry that clanks every time you move. This distracts not only you but others in the audience. On the other hand, this type of jewelry is ideal for a nightclub or other loud place.

Try to match the jewelry to the setting at all times. Stop and think about whether the pieces will be a distraction in any way. If the answer is yes, it’s best to choose other items or forego jewelry completely. This ensures nobody is disturbed by your selected outfit and everyone around you will appreciate your thoughtfulness. That’s the most important thing.
