4 Types of Statement Jewelry
If you’ve ever seen a celebrity walking the red carpet and the jewelry catches your eye before the outfit does, then you know the power of statement jewelry. Statement jewelry brings an outfit together and makes a “statement” about the personality of the person wearing it. If you are curious about the different types of statement jewelry and are looking for ideas for your collection, we have some tips and suggestions for you.
What is Statement Jewelry?
Statement jewelry allows both men and women to express themselves and their personality through jewelry. Statement jewelry is unique and bold and helps the wearer portray who they are through their outward appearance. Wearing bold and stylish jewelry is nothing new, ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians used statement jewelry in ceremonies, rituals, and to show divine favor. To this day, people continue to use jewelry and other accessories to make statements about who they are and what they value.
4 Types of Statement Jewelry
If you are considering buying a piece of statement jewelry, you have a wide range of options. Consider what kind of jewelry you like to wear first and then choose a piece that makes a statement. For example, if you prefer wearing earrings over necklaces, you can choose a pair of statement earrings that match your style. Below are some tips and examples from our store and our featured collections of the different types of statement jewelry.
1. Statement Necklaces
When choosing a statement necklace, you want to go for a necklace that is big, bold, colorful, and reflects your personality. In the examples below, we have a Gator necklace pendant, which is perfect for the University of Florida Gator’s fan. In the next example, we have a beautiful opal pendant that reflects facets of rainbow colors that really catch the eye.
2. Statement Earrings
If you have more of a taste for earrings, then statement earrings are the choice for you. Statement earrings are the most versatile of the options, as you can choose a style for each ear. Earring fashion has become more fluid over the years, and it is not uncommon to see mismatched earrings of different styles, colors, or shapes. One thing to note on statement earrings, however, is that they can sometimes be heavy for the wearer. If you have pierced ears, this is something to keep in mind.
Below we have two examples from Simon G. Jewelry, one of the featured collections in our store. In the first example, you can see that the shape isn’t exactly the same, which adds interest to an already beautiful pair of earrings. In the next example, the large filigree design draws the eyes, especially with the added sparkle of the diamonds.
3. Statement Rings
When it comes to statement rings, you have many options. You can choose rings that have a statement shape, that have a featured stone, or that have an intricate design. One thing to note when wearing statement rings: try to stick to one statement ring per hand. Wearing too many statement pieces on one hand can divert the attention away from the piece that you want to highlight.
In these examples, we have another statement Gator piece of jewelry, for the University of Florida fan. This ring definitely makes a statement about the wearer and their love for the Gators. In the next example, from the Sylvie Collection, it is the intricate design that makes this piece stand out.
Bracelets come in a variety of styles: cuff, bangle, tennis, and more. Any style of bracelet can become a statement piece. Based on your choice of colors, gems, diamonds, and shapes, there are a wide variety of options that can fit your taste.
In the examples below, we have a cuff bracelet from the Sylvie Collection, that features an intricate design with sapphires on yellow gold. The next is an example from Simon G. Jewelry. Stackable bracelets are a great way to get the dramatic look of a statement bracelet while also adding personal flair. You can decide what colors and combinations to include, so the style is all your own!
