The 10 Jewelry Staples That Every Woman Should Have

I am loving all the new jewelry designs that are coming out recently, aren't you? Yet, I still love my simple "staple" pieces that I have. You can never go wrong with a pair of diamond studs, or a pearl necklace. I believe these 10 items that I am going to list, are pieces that every woman should own. Because they're versatile and go with the rest of your wardrobe - securing these essentials can help you save a lot of time and money.

1. Diamond Stud Earrings. These work whenever, wherever, for whoever-from day to night, for work, school, and special occasions. The ideal stud size is 0.25ct which is big enough to add that subtle pretty sparkle to your outfit without looking like too much. But if you're going for a high-class fashionista, you can always go bigger with a 1 or 2 carat and really get your message across!
2. Diamond Pendant Necklace. You want to be able to wear it for day and night, as well as various other occasions. Make sure to select a smaller diamond to avoid drawing to much attention. Choose simple and versatile pendant shapes such solitaire, marquise or cube.
 3. Pearl Stud Earrings. A pair of pearl stud earrings are pretty but not too flashy, and are excellent with all outfits and occasions. Great for office work, school, visiting your in-laws and so on. Secure your first pair in a size that doesn't extend past your earlobes. Large pearls tend to make a fashion statement, you need stud earrings that are neutral.
Get the pearls in your best light neutrals. So if you have a cool skin tone, go for pure white, rose pink and/or silver. If you have a warm skin tone, opt for ivory, cream, browns and gold.
 4. Pearl String Necklace. Pearl necklaces complements your pearl stud earrings and are a must for a classy lady! Make sure you pick a length that won't choke your neck making it look shorter. It's of course ideal if you have a long neck but it's not that versatile. The ideal pearl necklace length falls between your collarbone and right above your bust.
 5. Hoop Earrings. Hoop earrings are versatile but are some of the stylish jewelry essential you can ever own. They add that extra spiff of stylishness that work with almost any outfit. The best and most ideal size is between 1 to 2 inches, depending on your facial shape. They're not too small nor big. You might also want to make sure to select a pair that are scaled to your facial features. Thinner and smaller if you have small facial features, and vice versa if you have average to large features.
6. Chandelier Earrings. You need at least one pair of dangle earrings that boosts the glam-factor of a cocktail dress! A pair of chandelier earrings are perfect for this and are suitable for various special occasions. Anytime you want to look and feel glamorous! Make sure your first pair of chandelier earrings are in either neutral silver or gold. Preferably with clear crystal embellishment.
7. Chain Bracelet. A simple chain bracelet is a great accent to any outfit. You can also wear it in stacks with your casual leather and bead bracelets, creating an ultra chic style. I love my Tiffany's bracelet! 
8. Statement Necklace. A fashionista needs at least one good statement necklace that brings a boring dress shirt or tee to life! Think large chains, gemstone beads, colors, multiple layers and so on. But it's completely up to your personal style. The point with a statement necklace is that it should contrast with a plain top. 
9. Cocktail Ring. An elegant and versatile cocktail ring is a must have for any occasion! I love big rings, with a lot of bling, some people (like my mother,) who think my rings look gaudy, but to me the bigger the better!!
10. Nice Watch. I absolutely love watches, and the same concept is THE BIGGER THE BETTER! I have many watches, small, medium, large, and x-large! I love the sheek look of the metal Rolex watch, and the manly look of my Bolivia watch, or my newest addition is my DKNY ceramic watch! Watches always accentuate your personal style!
