Stacking Jewelry

Coco Chanel’s famous edict “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off” is beginning to fall by the wayside.  There is a more-is-more mindset happening when it comes to jewelry right now, it is all about pairing new finds with old favourites.  Wearing numerous pieces of jewelry is no longer a taboo.  Do not be confused, stacking jewelry can still be a delicate art form.  Throwing on all of your jewelry aimlessly can run the risk of looking like a child who raided their mother’s jewelry box.  The key is rather than scattering pieces all over the body, stack them and concentrate on a specific part of the body. One tip to stacking is to experiment with shapes and lines. Having a combination of horizontal and vertical pieces, and creating a bit of negative space, will ensure that it never looks like you are wearing too many pieces of jewelry at once.  Below are some great stacking ideas to get you started.


No, we're not talking about rented male dancers (though we're not judging, either). We're talking about stud earrings--a perfect thank you gift for your beloved bridesmaids.
                             
With the advent of fashion and lifestyle blogs representing people from all walks of life, weddings are becoming less and less cookie cutter all the time. DIY culture and the drive towards individuality make unique, personalized touches more ubiquitous. Yet a gift of jewelry between lifelong friends is as timeless and meaningful as ever.
Jewelry as a bridesmaids gift can serve to distinguish or unite. If you've opted for traditional, matching bridesmaids gowns, then presenting each girl with her own, unique pair of earrings (or a ring, a necklace, a cuff) is a way of showing your appreciation for her one-of-a-kind place in your wedding, and your life. If you've taken the increasingly popular route of having bridesmaids pick their own dresses, then matching jewelry will serve to unify the look, and feel, of your bridal party. Either way, your carefully chosen best girlfriends will always have their piece of elegant Kavut jewelry to remind them of your special day and your friendship.
And, unlike those bridesmaids' dresses, they will absolutely wear their sterling silver or glittering gold again.
