Recently, statement jewelry pieces took the central stage. To balance the situation for the purpose of well-styled wardrobe, I feel the need to write about studs as an essential jewelry. Unlike large statement trendy pieces, studs are timeless. We need them to highlight our beauty but not to override it. As if you whisper instead of shouting. Sometimes, whispering delivers message better than loud voice. Same is true for studs.
You wear a party dress with bold necklace, power suit or sporty track pants – studs will fit to any role. Many stylists and jewelry companies recommend diamond studs. Perhaps, the investment is justified, but think that you can pay the similar price for larger diamond in your ring. Personally, I prefer simpler pieces like these London topaz silver studs that I got from overstock for $17 ( maybe now $24). They look pretty and unlike their trendy sisters – tassel earrings – I wear these studs for several years, not just one season. Thanks to their price tag, I do not have any fear of losing the earring. In fact, I already did, and got another pair – so now have enough of them. One critical thing regarding studs, is that they should have some sparkle – it lights up the face.
So this post is just to remind of how we can whisper with studs to get a great effect. The beauty of minimalistic style is to highlight the personality not the dress. And the main quality of an artist is the feeling of harmony. Studs fit this role beautifully.
