Tis the Season: Jewelry Tips for the Holidays


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and before you know it, your schedule will be brimming with holiday parties and get-togethers. Whether it’s an office party, a family Christmas celebration, or a dressy New Year’s Eve gala, with the right jewelry you’ll be set to stun.

Silver and gold

It’s in the song. You really can’t go wrong with these two classic metals. Paired together, gold’s warm tints and silver’s cooler hues evoke holiday shimmer—a look perfect for dressing up a Christmas Eve or New Year’s ensemble. If you’ve never mixed metals, go ahead and give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!

Holiday statements

During the party season, you may opt for a bolder look. Statement jewelry can be your ticket to make a festive entrance. Just keep in mind, as with any prominent accessory, keep the whole look in focus. Bold pieces stand out best against simple outfits, and gaudy is never a good look. 

Season of sparkles

Glitzy dresses and shimmery tops have long been staples of holiday parties. For an always-classy glamour, accessorize with diamonds. With light all around you, you’ll always be sparkling. 

If you’re in the mood to branch out, don’t forget to feature colored gems. The whole spectrum is yours to style with, and there’s no better time to wear colored earrings than in December. 

A trusted look

If any last-minute invitations come your way, having a trusted jewelry set will serve you in a pinch. Look through your jewelry collection and choose an earring and necklace combination perfect for pairing with many different outfits. For a complete set, add a bracelet, and you’ll be ready for whatever may come your way.

Check the mood

Some parties will be relaxed and casual, and others will be formal celebrations. Knowing when to break out your ugly Christmas sweater and when to choose a cocktail dress will help you with your jewelry choices, too. Some jewelry pieces will bring the perfect amount of classiness to a relaxed look, while others may look strange and out-of-place. For example, simple gold hoops are a classic way to elevate your look, but a diamond-studded necklace might be too flashy, depending on the occasion. 

Don’t forget to style

If you’re looking to highlight a specific piece of jewelry, dress to set it off. Pull your hair into an updo to allow your earrings to shine, or minimize your earrings to draw attention to a layered necklace. A little black dress can be paired with chunky or multicolored jewelry, while a patterned Christmas sweater will do best with a gold chain or diamond earrings. 

At the end of the day, your fashion is your own, and the holiday season may be the best time to try out different looks. If you’re in the mood to break the rules, then do it, by all means. Follow these tips or come up with your own set of guidelines to take you through December right into the new year!
