The Only 6 Pieces of Jewellery You Need

The only 6 pieces of jewellery you need

By now, you’re well acquainted with the concept of a minimalist capsule wardrobe, that thoughtfully curated selection of complementary clothing that allows for the creation of maximum outfits with timeless appeal. The core idea – shopping fewer, versatile wardrobe essentials you can wear on repeat – needn’t be reserved solely for clothes, but can also extend to jewellery. (And other accessories, but that’s a post for another day.)

Creating a capsule of jewellery means investing in pieces that will act as workhorses in your wardrobe, elevating even the most simple of outfits. The good news? You really only need six pieces of classic jewellery to build a collection of basics that’ll suit all occasions. From everyday jewellery (see: simple studs and a delicate chain) to event jewellery (oversized hoops and a statement necklace), there is a common thread throughout – each piece is high quality and wearable, and feels special without being overly trend-forward. 

Keen to update your essential jewellery collection? Read on for 6 pieces you’ll wear over and over again.


everyday earrings


Whether you love gold jewellery or silver jewellery (or both), there are plenty of options for everyday earrings on offer. The right pair will act as a valve in your wardrobe, dialling up casual looks and dressing down formal outfits. Choose from minimalist studs or hoops that’ll work with everything from jeans and a tee to tailoring.

A never take it off necklace


This is your everyday necklace, the one that’s forever around your neck and is a recognisable part of your style signature. Opt for a simple chain (look for one with an interesting link pattern), timeless fob or petite pendant. The key is choosing something versatile enough to work with the clothes you wear most frequently.

a timeless ring


Perfect for adding subtle shine to your everyday fit, classic rings are an elegant touch that effortlessly goes from day to night. Not used to wearing rings? A single statement piece is all you need. For a little more personality, try a smattering of fine rings worn across manicured fingers – they instantly upgrade any outfit.

the versatile bracelet


The charm of a good bracelet is its ability to transcend both casual and dressy occasions. Never out of place, it works just as well with a summer dress as it does a gown. If you plan to wear yours daily, consider something a little finer in weight. Chunkier styles offer a relaxed chicness that makes more of a statement.

event earrings


Need something to help dress up a simple outfit for an evening affair? A standout pair of earrings should be your go-to. (Add a slick of lipstick and you’ll nail the dress code, no doubt.) Investing in a pair you love means you’ll always have a unique finishing touch to rely on when you want to look and feel more dressed up.

a statement necklace


Like the big event earring, the statement necklace can push an otherwise simple outfit to the next level – it’s a quick and easy way to transform a casual outfit into something dressier. In the same way swapping sneakers for heels can elevate a slip dress, adding a chunky chain or pendant makes the fit feel much more event-ready.
