Building a staple collection
Ever find yourself searching for a piece of jewellery that you don’t own? Maybe it’s a pair of oversized hoops to go with that roll neck sweater or an extra long chain to match the plunging v neckline of your favourite dress. Here at NuNu we believe investing in a few staple pieces will complement your go-to styles without breaking the bank. Here’s how to build a jewellery collection that keeps on giving.
No jewellery collection is complete without a pair of hoop earrings. Whether a dainty, fine circle or shoulder brushing loops are more your thing, a hoop will add class and elegance to any outfit. Why not spice it up by mixing in another classic – pearls – with these pearl drop earrings?
Perfect for framing your neckline and mirroring your cheekbones, the classic princess line necklace is a must-have. Mix and match pendants or layer for added interest but most of all find the one you really love – you won’t ever want to take it off! This starfish necklace is minimalist yet interesting – the irregular shape allows light to play across its surface in fascinating waves. It would make the perfect addition to almost any outfit.
More practical than hoops, a good pair of decorative studs will lift any outfit without being overbearing. We recommend keeping it simple with well loved motifs such as flowers and stars and adding a little sparkle with colourful gemstones. Work in a little quirky style with icons such as these kiss and hug studs.
Short enough to sit above most necklines, this necklace is essential for trickier styling situations. The ideal companion for a little black dress and high, round necklines everywhere. Stick to a simple chain for maximum wearability or a conservative design such as this bird.
Longer chain necklace
For when you need a little more swing in your life, an extended length necklace can offer that extra oomph you’ve been looking for. Wear with plunge and square necklines, over sweaters and in layered looks. This disk necklace allows a perfect drop of silver to elegantly complement the look.
The Statement pieces
From earrings to necklaces to rings, a statement piece will elevate your look and communicate your own personal style. When choosing statement pieces focus on colour and form – make sure that the colours you choose complement those already within your wardrobe for maximum wear. Mix and match chain weights and pendant size to cover all the bases. Make sure they are comfortable to wear – we all have that one pair of earrings that are drop dead gorgeous but are too heavy for more than a couple of hours and lie disregarded in the bottom of our trinket trays gathering dust. Choose a piece that you’ll want to wear again and again, if only to steal glances at it in every reflective surface. Choose wisely and have fun!
