The holidays are here, and so are the parties and gatherings! Accessorizing your outfit can be a challenge, but a piece of statement jewelry is a sure way to add festive elegance to any look.
We turned to Peter Suchy Jewelers, who curated six pieces from his trove of treasures, for ways that you can bring some extra sparkle to your holiday parties. Whether you stay chic with a chunky ring or frame your face with sparkly earrings, here are some styling tips for holiday belles to jingle all the way through the festivities.
Talk about sparkle. With a rare 5.88-carat purplish-pink garnet surrounded by four tapered baguette diamonds and 42 round full-cut diamonds, let bold rings like this take center stage. Wearing it as the only ring on your hand, its brilliance will really shine.
These stunner earrings are all about that eye-catching shape. Two pear rubies glint at the edge of these tear-shaped earrings, surrounded by 74 round diamonds. With statement earrings like these, make sure to wear your hair back to let every facet catch the light.
Sometimes, the statement is about an unexpected color, like this bright yellowish green 14.83-carat peridot, ringed by 16 round diamonds. As a wink to the classic holiday colors, pair green jewels with an all-red outfit to glam up holiday looks.
Though striking on their own, some statement pieces really sing when paired with complimenting jewelry. Because of its sleek, almost mod setting, this 1950s-1960s ring with an 8.14-carat reddish tourmaline and diamonds pairs well with stacked bangles that echo its elegant simplicity.
There’s so much to love about these vintage beauties, circa the 1950s-1960s, with 20 purplish-red rubies and two diamonds set into a textured flower shape. When wearing vintage statement pieces, look to their time period for inspiration on how to dress for your holiday parties. In this case, a high boat neckline or an A-line skirt sets the stage for vintage glamour.
Circa 1900, this marquise-shaped ring stuns with 62 bright European-cut diamonds and an alluring ocean-blue sapphire. An elongated pendant necklace would pair perfectly with the ring’s striking shape. With ornate pieces such as this, simple stud earrings add just the right amount of shine without looking overdone.
