Five Simple Pieces That Will Turn You Into A Jewellery Guy
Jewellery is one of the easiest ways to add personality to your outfit. But if you’re new to the bling game, it can be hard to know where to start. We’ve all been there – “is this right for me?” or “can I even pull it off?” are questions that’ll inevitably cross your mind before you can really consider yourself a jewellery guy.
The answer? Start small. Simple jewellery might not pack the same punch as the bolder and more colourful pieces available at MR PORTER, but it has the benefit of slotting seamlessly in your rotation and will work with pretty much anything in your existing wardrobe. Plus, it’s a gateway for getting more comfortable with wearing jewellery.
Without further ado, read on for five simple yet effective pieces that will form the solid foundations of your jewellery collection.
The Duffy Jewellery chain
You can never go wrong with a simple chain and this white-gold one from Duffy Jewellery is a little more understated than yellow-gold styles. Tuck it beneath a T-shirt for a more streamlined look, or layer it with similar necklaces if you’re feeling adventurous – and don’t be afraid to mix your metals.
The Spinell Kilcollin earring
We’ve already written an entire piece on how the mixed-metal faux pas is outdated, and now we’re pleased to report that jewellery newbies can also hop on the trend, thanks to Spinelli Kilcollin. This earring from the Los Angeles brand is handmade from silver and detailed with three gold rings, which are said to represent the harmony of opposites.
The Foundrae bracelet
The Bleue Burnham ring
The thought of jewellery with colourful stones may be a daunting one, but we can guarantee that Bleue Burnham’s ring is just as low-key as any other signet. It’s crafted from repurposed sterling silver and set with six lab-grown sapphires that represent half a dozen roses.
The Jenny Dee Jewelry anklet
Wearing jewellery on your ankle rather than your neck, wrists or fingers is a fail-safe way to get started, especially in warm weather. Style Jenny Dee Jewelry’s understated style with cuffed trousers or shorts – the yellow and blackened gold colourway will work well with just about any other shade.
