For cen­turies, jew­ellery has been an es­sen­tial el­e­ment for women to en­hance their looks and to make a state­ment. Even though trends keep chang­ing, there are some time­less pieces that never go out of style.

Here are a few tips that ev­ery girl or woman must keep in mind while cu­rat­ing her jew­ellery wardrobe.

■ Hoop ear­rings: A pair of ver­sa­tile hoops in your ar­moury en­sures that even on a ca­sual jeans-and-Tshirt day, you can take your at­tire a notch up with your jew­ellery.

■ Lay­ered neck­laces: It’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to go wrong with styling lay­ered neck­laces on any look, be it In­dian or west­ern. For in­stance, a long beaded chain in lay­ers, stacked around the neck can make a bold state­ment while lay­er­ing dainty chains with pen­dants on plain T-shirts can give a more re­laxed vibe to the out­fit. To max­imise the at­ten­tion to your ac­ces­sory, opt for big­ger pen­dants. Also, if you pre­fer to add oomph to your en­sem­ble, choose a state­ment neck­lace.

■ State­ment choker: If you’re a min­i­mal­ist at heart, this is the only ac­ces­sory you’ll ever need! Forgo any other jew­ellery to avoid any dis­trac­tion. Also, try and team some­thing with an open neck­line with your choker — it could be a Vneck or an off-shoul­der sil­hou­ette. This helps to draw fo­cus to­wards the jew­ellery.

■ Cock­tail rings: Cock­tail rings come in all man­ners of shapes, sizes, colour of stones, and de­signs. Al­ways a con­ver­sa­tion starter, it can al­low you to ef­fec­tively make an im­pres­sion on peo­ple by the mere use of your hands.

■ Ear­rings that frame your face: Ear­rings have a big im­pact on your out­fit as they are in the line of vi­sion of your di­rect com­pany. They maybe rel­a­tively small, but they should com­pli­ment your face struc­ture as they can make or break an out­fit. For ex­am­ple, an oval face can pull off a pair of round studs, but a round face should try and avoid this style. In­stead, go for longer drop ear­rings which would help sculpt the face ef­fi­ciently.
