Go beautiful and barely there. How gorgeous are these whisper light pieces? Look for delicate chains, modern shapes, muted stones, and a gold color that will all but disappear against your skin. Once you find that perfect light-as-air piece, you’ll be able to wear it constantly thanks to its subtlety.

Go sinister and sculptural. Well, okay, not all that sinister—but the vibe is witchy. Look for spikey shapes, scaly textures, snake motifs, wraparound styles, and darker shades of gold with matte finishes. Each piece should be strong enough to wear on its own when you want a statement-making accent.

Go layered with mixed metals. More is more—that’s the look! Mix yellow gold with rose gold with white gold with silver—and diamonds, of course. One popular look is to wear a “ring bracelet” with a lot of other rings and bracelets. Keep the mix balanced by wearing half rings on some fingers and x-rings on others. Even stacked, classic rings on all fingers just won’t look as modern.

Go sleek and shiny minimalist. When you need a break from “more is more” reach for a single shiny piece or two—sleek and not too delicate—for an elegant, minimalist look. Play these pieces against the colors you’re wearing: consider a shiny rose golf cuff with a fuzzy dove gray sweater or a yellow gold collar necklace over a midnight blue blouse. These can be brilliant wear-to-work looks.

Go boho with beads and friendship bracelets. This can be an easy everyday look—or it can be a mood you conjure on casual denim days. There are no rules when it comes to this look—mix beads, threads, chains, and cuffs until the combination sings. We love this look with jeans and printed tops and jackets. Casual colorful outfits and casual colorful jewelry go hand in hand.

Go with symbols. Maybe it’s a name necklace, astrological charm, animal shape, or Chinese character. As long as it has meaning for you, wear it. Layer it or let it stand alone. It’ll shine through if it’s meaningful to you.
