Jewelry: to be elegant make it simple

When you accessorize you need to keep it very simple. I personally don't like to wear necklace, earrings and bracelets all at the same time: it's either one or the other and I personally don't like matching the necklace with the earrings or with the bracelets. There is no originality in that! Originality is essential if you want to be noticed for you and you alone, otherwise you risk to look like a copy of the mannequin in the store.

Pearls are always in fashion: this is one item that will never die. Look young and chic with a long necklace, absolutely lovely on your black or dark blue dress.

Or make your pearls really stand out with a collar necklace! An item like this will make you glow!

And again for a face lightening effect (particularly needed during the Winter months) I'm selecting something like this shining Morellato necklace:

For Spring or Summer instead you need bright colors. How about something like this handmade shell?

Or if you like why not wear something ethnic like this amazing statement necklace?

With beach clothes I like to wear coral necklaces:

As for the earrings my selections are here below:

A gold pair of butterflies made in delicate filigree (what is more elegant than butterflies after all?):

A pair of madreperla earrings:

For the Summer I'm picking something like these pink resin earrings:

While the first pair looks good with any hair style (as the earrings are quite small), big or long earrings look best with your hair down.

For the bracelets my personal selection goes to this pearl bracelet by Furla:

And this lovely bracelet by Links:

For a dancing evening out I would definitely wear this happy bold red bracelet:

It's great to wear more than 1 bracelet as long as they are matching:
