Diamond Earrings

Sparkly diamonds are classic earrings that never go out of style. Diamond stud earrings can be a circle in shape or square cut to suit different styles or occasions. Diamond earrings range in all sizes and styles, making them jewelry staples. For example, diamond earrings make for an understated professional look in the office, but are also perfect for a special occasion like a romantic dinner.


Something with Pearls

From pearl earrings to a strand of pearls on a necklace, essential jewelry certainly includes pearls. For generations, pearl jewelry has symbolized beauty and classic style and still does today.

You can never go wrong with a strand of pearls on a necklace. However, sporting pearls can be as simple as wearing a pair of pearl stud earrings. Another way to wear pearls is to have a simple drop necklace that features a pearl on a chain.


Hoop Earrings

The hoop earring is a style that goes with everything. Hoops can be large or small, come available in gold, rose gold or silver and can include diamonds or other gemstones. This makes hoop earrings versatile and a true example of classic jewelry style.


Quality Watch

You may not think of a watch as a piece of jewelry, but it may be just the accessory your outfit needs. This makes a quality watch a timeless jewelry piece every woman should own. You can choose a leather band watch with a simple face or opt for something more ornate instead.

A watch with a bracelet band is an option for dressing up your jewelry wardrobe. You can never go wrong with classic watch brands like Citizen, Fossil, Bulova, Movado and Tissot. From personalized watches to rose-tone, the watch options are endless.


Cocktail Ring or Statement Ring

A cocktail ring or statement ring is a piece of staple jewelry you will cherish. Cocktail rings are bold and made to stand out. Sport a colorful gemstone design or a diamond cluster statement ring on your right hand. Sometimes dressing up an outfit is as simple as throwing on a statement ring and calling it a day.


Bangle Bracelet

When it comes to timeless jewelry pieces, bangle bracelets never go out of style. Stack bangle bracelets or wear them alone. These types of bracelets come in various metal types like rose gold, yellow gold and silver. Sometimes, bigger and wider bangle bracelets are called "cuff" bracelets.
