You never get a second chance to make a first impression. How true that statement is. The clothes you choose, the manner in which you speak, the way you style your hair and the type of jewelry you wear all combine to make a statement about who you are.
Jewelry is one of the ways people identify themselves to others. Consider what the jewelry is saying about the people you meet at parties and on the street.
Here are several general types as follows:
A person who wears large jewelry such as big hoop earrings, thick dangling necklaces, or extravagant rings is likely to be an active, social and bubbly person.
They are the ones usually surrounded by groups of people at a party.
Their generous and cheery personalities draw people to them like metal filings to a magnet.
People who wear recycled material such as turquoise earrings, bangle bracelets and sea glass or shell necklaces are nature lovers.
They enjoy the outdoors and have an awareness of the world around them. They tend to gravitate toward earthy tones such as brown, beige, forest green and ocean blue.
There are people who prefer elegant and simple jewelry such as pearl earrings and necklaces.
These people are often traditionalists and family oriented. They prefer a quiet get together with close friends to a night out on the town.
They have classic tastes in furniture and clothing. Their poise and calm demeanor would make them noticeable from across a crowded room.
The Best of the Best
Everything these people wear is chosen with great care and attention to detail. They never settle for second best and move forward through life at full speed.
They set goals for themselves and expect those goals to be reached. When they buy jewelry, they make sure it is going to be the piece that they want and will settle for nothing less.
They wear watches from Neiman Marcus, diamonds from Tiffany and shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. Others often look to them for advice and guidance.
People who are neat, responsible and organized tend to wear jewelry in matched sets.
They may wear a gold necklace with matching earrings. Or elegant silver bracelets that match the color of their shoes perfectly.
They are gracious hosts and excellent conversationalists who are often sought out for advice.
There are some people who make bold statements with their jewelry by wearing vintage pieces. They want jewelry that stands out and is different from the standard.
These people can often be found in antique and thrift stores, searching for that perfect piece of jewelry that has their name on it.
They don’t care much about brand names. For them, what they wear is more than a statement; it is a form of art.
Wash and Wear
People that wear on-the-go jewelry, such as tennis bracelets and necklaces with pendants, tend to have an active life. Their jewelry needs to be able to fit into their energetic and athletic lifestyle.
They want to look good without giving up the things they enjoy doing. They are also highly motivated and love jewelry engraved with inspirational sayings.
An important factor to consider is also the type of situation that someone is in. For instance, at an interview, a person may want to wear pearl studs or small hoops.
If they wear a necklace, the chain should be thin, with no pendant attached. During interviews, people want to give a more conservative impression.
On the other hand, for a party with friends, a person could possibly wear one of their nicest pieces of jewelry or perhaps something with more sparkle and flash to it.
Conservative jewelry is an essential part of a professional wardrobe. Artistic jewelry is more about making a statement.
Both styles are valid and needed in everyday life. Give some thought to what pieces of jewelry you put on each day. They speak about what kind of personality you have whether you are at work or at play.
