HOW TO: CURATE YOUR OWN CAPSULE JEWELRY COLLECTION

We all have at least one of those pieces—the ring that gives you a weird tan line around your finger every summer (because you never take it off), the pair of earrings that you always add to an outfit when it needs extra oomph—we’re talking go-to jewelry that you can count on. We love the stuff that you can both sleep and adventure in, that you can wear with pretty much everything in your wardrobe and that you want to keep forever. If you’re of the same mind when it comes to accessorizing, here are a few tips for putting together what we like to think of as your own capsule jewelry collection.

1: START SMALL

What’s key to the capsule idea is including a few simple styles that play well with others but still make an impact on their own. Read: thin, stackable rings, minimalist studs and subtly beaded necklaces made for layering. These are the pieces that really start to become part of you—that you’ll virtually never take off.

2: NO PRESSURE

No need to stick with a single metal or stone when choosing options for your capsule, unless that’s what you like. As long as each fits with your everyday style, don’t let any restrictive “no mixing silver and gold” kind of rules hold you back.

3: HAVE FUN

Once you’ve got those timeless basics set, add in a statement maker that speaks to your personality. Is it a bold, sculptural necklace or a conversation-starting cuff? Are you drawn to the tassel trend? Finding the standout piece that really feels you is like the accessory equivalent of a perfect leather jacket or an unquestionably special pair of jeans—you just know it when you see it.
