Everyday Jewellery Styling: Three Different Ways To Style Your Sparkles

How to wear your jewellery to suit your most important feature: your personality.

Much like our hair and makeup, we want the jewellery we wear on the regular to make our best features shine. This isn’t about turning heads because of your uber-glam makeup complete with double-stacked falsies, or wearing enough necklaces your chest functions as an impromptu disco ball. (That said, if that’s you, incredible effort—we commend you!) Rather, it’s about using our accessories to emphasise what’s already there. Your own unique self: celebrated and adorned, not hidden behind a costume.

When it comes to the jewellery we want to wear for life, not a night, we’d rather opt for quality pieces that we know are going to last, and that don’t cost the earth. The iconic jewellery maker Pandora is our go-to. As well as using high-quality materials like sterling silver, Pandora has also committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2025 and moving towards using precious metals that can be infinitely recycled.

Everyday jewellery doesn’t mean only sticking to the boring basics though. Through their endlessly customisable charm bracelets and layerable necklaces, there’s a Pandora piece to suit all of your moods.

For the Girlfriend launch shoot, we styled three different looks to show you three simple but powerful ways to express your individuality through your jewellery, every day.

Look one: stacks on stacks

Add interest to a simple, solid coloured outfit with layered bracelet look. If the rest of your look is pretty minimalist, going maximal with your bracelets and charms is a fun way to add a tonne of personality. Choose Pandora charms that reflect your current fave hobbies, memories or people for a fun look that’s entirely you.

Look two: powerful pendants

An everyday jewellery styling tip we’ll always fall back on? Layer your necklaces. A couple of simple pieces are taken to the next level when they’re worn together—try mixing metals and pendants for a look that’s sure to be a conversation starter.

Jewellery is as much about selecting beautiful, high-quality pieces as it is about how creative you can be with your styling of them. During the Girlfriend relaunch shoot our amazing stylist cleverly created a sweet rose-gold earring chain from single hoops, but the possibilities are endless. Try looping a long pendant necklace around your neck twice for a faux-choker, or wear around your wrist for a layered effect. You’re only as limited as your imagination!
