Keeping a capsule collection of jewellery is a great way to downscale on spending and to appreciate what you have. A timeless piece of jewellery is often versatile and works from day to night, from black tie to casual.
When you’re considering building a capsule collection that will last you a lifetime, it’s important to consider quality. While it’s always nice to find a bargain set of stack rings for R100, if you’re looking for timeless jewellery that won’t tarnish, it will cost you more.
Your capsule collection should consist of investment pieces that you admire and appreciate. It’s rewarding to spoil yourself (and be spoiled) with a piece of jewellery that you could eventually pass down to your children.
If you’re interested in building a capsule collection of your own, here are 9 pieces of jewellery that are worth investing in.
9 timeless pieces for a capsule jewellery collection
Pearl earrings: Pearl earrings bring a touch of sophistication, and they complement both casual and formal looks perfectly.
Stud earrings: Stud earrings are the real workhorses of your jewellery box. Versatile for both day and night, they’re elegant and never go out of style.
Chain necklace: A chain necklace is all the flair a minimalist outfit needs. Its clean lines and simplicity make it a versatile accessory, and it adds a smidge of contemporary edge to your outfit.
Signet ring: The signet ring is a classic accent that adds a touch of charm. Signet rings make great sentimental gifts for loved ones, especially when engraved with something symbolic, or with initials.
Dainty necklace: A dainty necklace exudes subtle elegance. Its delicate design adds a feminine touch to your ensemble, perfect for everyday wear or layering with other pieces.
Stacking rings: Stacking rings add a pop of fun to your style. If your outfit is missing a little edge, a stack will give you the razzle you need to complete your look.
Hoop earrings: Hoop earrings are so Y2K, but also so timeless and chic!
Tennis bracelet: The tennis bracelet is all about serving understated glamour. It’s a classic design, and is often covered in diamonds or gemstones. It’s a big little luxury that acts as a go-to piece for special occasions.
Watch: A watch is not just a timepiece, it’s a style accessory. We’re not talking about fitness or smartwatches. A classic analog watch will complete your capsule collection.
