While extravagant luxury pieces are great for special occasions, you also need simple accessories to elevate an ensemble whenever the need arises. Having casual jewelry staples in your possession is an easy way to add flair to an everyday look. Our expert guide introduces you to our favorite pieces that can help build your jewelry collection.

Stick with Stud Earrings

One go-to accessory that everyone should have is a classic pair of stud earrings. These delicate pieces can take a style and elevate it to new heights and their versatility gives you the chance to wear them on any occasion. A pair of simple studs add the perfect romantic touch whether you’re wearing a flirty, black dress or a soft cashmere sweater.

Consider wearing studs that fit your personality or incorporate your favorite color like these rose gold studs with a vibrant purple gemstone in the center. The design is understated, yet elegant, allowing you to dress up any outfit without having to overdo it on the accessories.

Strings of Pearls for Any Occasion

Having a lovely string of pearls is an essential casual jewelry staple. There are plenty of pearl options that can adapt this accessory to match your personal style. This beaded pearl necklace from Mastoloni has a subtle elegance that is ideal for daily wear and blends seamlessly into any aesthetic. Some necklaces will be made with Tahitian Black pearls, Akoya, or freshwater pearls in different hues that add a bit of color and stray from the traditional white pearls if you’re looking for something unique.


Bangle Bracelets Speak Volumes

When you want to make a bold statement without going overboard on the accessories, a bangle bracelet is a must-have. Check out this captivating black ceramic and rose gold bangle. The enchanting deep hue from the black ceramic beading allows for the rose gold ones to stand out. A single diamond accents the center of each rose gold bead for a bit of radiance. This piece adds a subtle elegance to casual outfits.
