The ability to combine different types of jewelry increases the versatility and lifetime of a collection. And mixing and matching the user manages to create an unlimited number of unique arrangements.
Today we are going to give some tips of these combinations and we will divide these tips in two parts so as not to get very tiring. Come on???
The Costume Jewelery was originally conceived as inexpensive accessories that reflected the fashion trends of the time and should be disposable. For women with no resources to purchase jewelry or no inheritance of parts, fashion has provided the means to feel glamorous and to change pieces every day without making a heavy investment through the bijou.
Although the trinkets were predominantly used throughout the 20th century, their status changed gradually during the 1940s. With groundbreaking designers like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior the crafting of pieces gained higher quality and was popularized by Hollywood movie stars.
The Costume Jewelry evolved to become the Semi Jewelry , parts that no longer functioned purely as disposable accessories but could be maintained and preserved for years, and these garments serve women of good taste worldwide regardless of social class.
Semi Jewelry ranges mainly from prices and composition materials. The big difference in price makes it easy for any woman to know what fits in her budget and can shop thinking about clothes or occasion.
Casual style casual designs are often made from basic metals, plastics or other lightweight materials. The Semi Fine Jewels mix superior materials with those of low cost, often replicating original jewelry. For example, a diamond necklace may have a royal sterling silver chain, but replacing the diamonds with the zirconia.
Balancing and Finding Combinations
Achieving balance, making different pieces complement one another, instead of competing for attention, that’s the challenge.
Stratification is useful for adding dimension and contrast to a clothing, but if the pieces do not talk the composition can get heavy and messy, damaging the look.
Pay attention to the sizes and quantities of the parts used. More jewelry in one part of the body should be equal to less jewelry in another area, for example balancing several bracelets on a wrist with another bare wrist. Avoid using more than one piece with large stones on extremely formal occasions.
You can create a gorgeous effect with several fine bracelets or create a contrast with one or two wide bracelets, separated by groups of finer bracelets.
Avoid overloading by limiting the bracelets to a short stretch of wrist, about 6 cm for example. Wear bracelets with approximately the same size or quantity to create a semi-symmetrical look.
Handmade bracelets are also wonderful and super charming.
Multiply in the same hand
Rings with large stones or decorative shapes work well alongside individual and double rings, as well as abstract or non-traditional shapes such as leaves and animals. A multi finger ring that shares a single decoration is a simple way to have an entire hand accessory without having styles clash.
Multiply in different hands
Rings on both hands is a common trend but with a delicate balance. Avoid several large stones or decorations that create overcrowding. Rings with raised decorations are offset by smooth surfaces and low settings. Find a combination of similar length or slightly shorter when needed, such as rings with decorations that extends from the joint to the first curve of the finger.
