The Bold & The Beautiful: Uncovering Eye-popping Jewellery for Fashion-forward Women

Women love jewellery. It’s a known fact. Some like theirs traditional, while some of them like them eclectic. Some wear theirs to show their femininity, while some wear their choice pieces to be artistic.

We know of some women who wear glittery jewellery on their hands and body in honor of other women in their family – their mothers being the most popular one. While some wear jewelry to capture the attention of the men they desire.

Whatever the reason is, wearing jewelry of all sizes and designs speak of women’s impeccable sense of fashion. It helps them put their best foot forward wherever they may be, regardless of the occasion.

We don’t know about you but we favor BIG pieces of jewelry – hunks, chunks, sizeable, eye-popping blings, among other “pet names.”  Simply, BIG is bold and definitely beautiful. Especially if you know how to work it!  

That said, we’ve decided to go BIG on the pieces we will showcase on this blog post. Let it be a fun exercise for all women! Play up your style and let loose. Here we go.

The Bohemian Bold Neckie

02

We have seen this particular style of neckwear on just about any woman we know.  What’s fascinating about this piece is that it can be paired with casual clothing but can also be coupled with classic corporate ensembles. The secret to making this look fly is in the neckline. The low-cut neckline gives the wearer the space she needs to make a statement. Wearing it BIG sends out a clear message, that women in general are not afraid to be themselves; and, that they are in a natural high when they can wear their true persona with pride.

Bead Us Up, Timmy!

03

This is where women have fun! Take a good look at how the small, blue beads were strung together and joined by polished wooden fastens. Large enough to hold the pendant but light enough to be worn around the neck. That’s why we think this piece is pretty. Also, look at how tightly huddled the small turquoise nuggets are as they are cradled in vintage finish. Capping it off is a tassel of light blue beads, which skirts down the wearer’s chest when worn to an art gallery opening, for instance. It would seem as if the woman is telling you to look at her.  We don’t mind if we do.

A Hot Mesh

04

It’s the kind of hotness that women desire for themselves when they put on jewelry, mind you. And, it helps them channel their inner goddesses by putting on thick, textured, braided strands of yellow gold, red gold, and white gold. Just like the beaded collection, this style is easy both on the eyes and on the wearer’s neck. It may shock you but this neckie is truly lightweight. But, a definite heavyweight when it comes to elegance and straight-up self-expression.

The Beach Babe Neckie

05

We easily picture a woman in a bikini top-and-bottom ensemble, strutting her stuff on the sand while other women (and men) ogle her HUGE piece. No, not that piece; but, this wallop of a shell-pendant-and-link number. It sways with her natural flow without overwhelming neither her nor the onlookers. It isn’t a heavy neckwear either!  Remember, just because it is noticeable, doesn’t have to mean it is heavy. And it’s not the kind of piece that screams for attention. It epitomizes the saying, “bold and beautiful.” Precisely why we’ve decided to include this baby in our roster of featured chunky jewels. This piece can either be paired with casual clothing or with a  little black dress for a night of fun and drinks.

The Love Quartz Bangle

06

It would be impossible to ignore an arm candy this huge! And, besides, who would want to miss out on a sizeable rose quartz? We know we won’t. We’re also sure that no woman could ever a bangle this kind. It’s just too charming to pass up. This one can be worn with ANYTHING. That’s how BIG its accessorial value is. Besides, rose quartz is the precious stone for the flirty, if you get our drift. It attracts good fortune and, hopefully, good love prospects. Overall, it is THE stone that best represents a woman for all her worth.

The Rose Bangle

07

An extension of a woman’s display for all things beautiful is to wear roses on huge blings like this one – the kind that warrants the right kind of attention. Even other women would find this intricate display of femininity hard to ignore. After all, we do not know of any member of the skirted species who wouldn’t fall for roses. Look at how clean-cut the chain links are? Pristine. And the braided leather? We love how everything melded together into this smashing bangle. Naturally, we won’t leave out the precious stones used on this baby – especially the sapphire ones. They just pop!

The Ruby Indian Cocktail Ring

08

We are just blown away by this finger bling! Look at how detailed the lines and curves are. Absolutely amazing! Any woman with long, slender fingers would fancy wearing one of these. And again, as it is fashioned in gold, this can go with other pieces of gold jewelry, regardless of the occasion. The woman can be an advertising executive, a PR topgun, or even a history professor – it doesn’t matter what her passions in life are, so long as she gets the chance to show how BIG and different she is. That fact alone settles the fashion debate right there and then.

The Rock Lobster Ring

09

Ooh, what a hunk! We adore the craftsmanship on this piece – how the lobster was transformed into a cradle for the topaz stone; and, how one of its pincers were fashioned to bed all the diamonettes? The way the band branches out to make way for the lobster’s legs? And, the way it holds onto the ruby-eyed-and-diamonette-scaled fish? Perfection. Any woman would want to have this on her finger. Forget the occasion.  Let the ring dictate what BIG celebration she wants so that she can wear it for as long she can.

The Ame-trapezoid Ring

10

The amethyst stone steals the show here, ladies and gentlemen! It simply is eye-catching because of its innate charm. But what makes it a standout? The refined silver casing adds a striking finish to the appeal of the ring. We are sure that any woman who would put this on would feel like royalty in an instant.

The Vintage Gold Earrings

11

The oddity of the inner shapes in this pair is what caught our eye. We thought it to be a representation of something historic. But, we reckon that the longer we look at these earrings, the more attractive they become. A woman can never go wrong with gold jewellery, like we always say. These ear jewels are retro, chic, and every inch a popper.  Also, this pair can be worn from the boardroom to the dancefloor.

The Pear-shaped Diamond Necklace

12

Every woman deserves a beauty like this.  Simple, elegant and an undeniably BIG piece of diamond.  Need we say more?  This exquisite 0.5ct pear-shaped diamond pendant set in Platinum 950 with a 9ct white gold chain is just stunning and can go with any outfit you can think of.

Spark it Up! Your Corporate Getup Coupled with Your Favorite Ring-bling

A woman is never without accessories. She always has a set for every place and occasion – the office, a night out with her man, a night out with her lady friends, and the outdoors.

Today, we shall concentrate on women who are as much of corporate warriors as they are jewelry lovers – ring lovers to be exact!

We came up with easy-to-follow tips on how to pair your office outfit with your rings. Read on and learn, ladies.

 

Find a RING that COMPLIMENTS your attire.  

1

This is a very basic principle – lay down a great corporate wear, say a pinstriped skirt-and-blazer ensemble paired with a white inner blouse. Pay attention to the buttons of both the blouse and the blazer. If both are white, then go for a white gold ring. Much better if it has a solitaire diamond on it!

However, if the buttons are yellow, make sure to pick out a gold diamond solitaire ring. Remember, the key word is COMPLIMENTARY. You want to look well put-together and fashion-forward, NOT CLUTTERED and mismatched.

Lastly, based on the attire and ring, put on a pair of earrings, a bracelet, neckwear, and a wristwatch to complete that smashing corporate attire of yours.

 

Let your RING SHINE.

2

Fancy a white, silky blouse-and-pencil-cut-skirt number? That’s easy. White blouses and skirts are often paired with either a silver or a white gold ring, alongside other pieces of jewelry.

Silk blouses make a diamond ring set on a white gold band pop! That will make your whole look smashing; and, can easily take you from boardroom meetings to dinner parties later in the evening.

Complete your look with a pair of stud earrings, a simple necklace, a bracelet, and a watch – all of which has to be in white gold or silver.

 

Do the REVERSE pairing.

3

Say, you have a House of Diamonds 5-Stone Brilliant Moissanite Engagement Ring in white gold and you want to wear it to work. Here’s what you should do. Let the ring guide you on what to put on for the day.

We’re sure that you’re allowed a day to dress down and look casual. For some offices, especially advertising agencies and publication houses – denims paired with flirty blouses are acceptable.

That said, take out your favorite pair of skinny jeans and match it with a cute-but-romantically styled cotton-candy pink blouse. Finish the ensemble off with nude stilettos.

Now, your ring has to be in good company – a simple pair of earrings, a thin-chained neckwear, a thin-link bracelet, a wristwatch, and YOUR RING. And, you’re all set!
