5 Tips to Update Your Jewellery Look (For Less!)

A new season is upon us, and with it, new jewellery fashion trends. If you’re the kind of person who likes to keep your look up to date, you probably spend a bit on accessories and jewellery each season. But we’d all go crazy – and broke – if we had to follow every single trend. So here are 5 smart ways to keep your jewellery look fresh without busting the bank.

1. You don’t need to buy every trend

Fashion magazines can sometimes make you feel like every trend is a must-have, but that’s just not the case. Consider carefully whether the design is just a passing fad, or whether you’ll love it so much that you’ll get continued wear out of it in the future. Remember, the most expensive fashion is the kind you only wear once.

2. Pick items that match your existing jewellery

Which of your existing jewellery items do you wear again and again? They are probably the ones that you look good in and feel comfortable wearing. If you match new items to your existing jewellery, you’ll build a collection that suits any occasion and reflects your personal style.

3. Classics are called classics for a reason

Classic jewellery never goes out of style. Consider timeless fashion icons, like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Jackie Onassis, whose jewellery could still be worn today without it looking outdated. Pick simple, elegant styles that will stand the test of time. This way you can recycle your jewellery from one event to the next while keeping your look fresh.

4. Build a foundation

If you don’t own any essential jewellery pieces, that’s a good place to start when shopping. Invest in 3-5 core pieces like diamond stud earrings, tennis bracelets, solitaire pendants, pearl items and a good watch. Versatility and quality are the hallmarks of essential jewellery. A core piece will easily transform from daytime to evening. Choose items that look just as good with denim as they do with a little black dress.

5. Find a jeweller you love

Having a good jeweller is vital. They should be helpful, reassuring, and be able to answer any questions you might have. You’ll be amazed by what a professional tip or two can do. For instance, you might discover which settings or metals are best for daily use (and which are not), how to pick a statement piece, or how to make your old jewellery shine like new. Most importantly, a good jeweller will always direct you to the best quality jewellery for your budget.
