Create your look: 6 tips for choosing the right handmade jewelry for every occasion

Finding the right jewelry for a particular occasion can sometimes feel like a daunting task. But with a few important considerations in mind, you can effortlessly choose jewelry that not only complements your outfit, but also reflects your personal style and the message you want to convey.

With these 6 simple tips, I would like to discuss the essential factors that you should consider when choosing the perfect jewelry for any occasion.


1. The occasion:
The first step in choosing the right jewelry is to consider the occasion. Whether it is a formal event such as a wedding or an informal gathering with friends, the type of event determines which style of jewelry is most suitable. Choose elegant and refined jewelry for formal occasions and simpler, more playful designs for casual events.

2. Your outfit:
Your jewelry should complement your outfit rather than dominate it. When choosing necklaces, consider the neckline and style of your clothing, and when choosing bracelets, consider the length and style of the sleeves. Aim for a cohesive look by matching the colors and styles of your jewelry to your outfit.

Example: With a boat neck or V-neck, shorter chains that end just above your collarbone are very beautiful. For high necklines, it is best to choose longer necklaces, with or without a nice pendant for an elegant touch. With strapless or off-shoulder tops, a statement necklace can really steal the show.

3. Jyour personal style:
Always choose jewelry that reflects your personal style and makes you feel confident. Whether you prefer minimalist designs or you're more of an all-in statement girly, let your personality shine through your choice of accessories. And don't be afraid to experiment with different styles to find what suits you best.

4. The message:
Jewelry can convey messages and symbolism, so think about the message you want to convey with your accessories. Whether it concerns elegance, creativity, spirituality or something completely different, choose jewelry that matches the feeling you want to convey.

5. Comfort:
While style is important, so is comfort, especially if you will be wearing the jewelry for an extended period of time. Avoid jewelry that is too heavy or cumbersome and opt for designs that allow you to move comfortably.

6. The time of day:
The time of day can influence your jewelry choice. For daytime events, lighter, more delicate jewelry that catches the sunlight is ideal, while evening events call for bolder and more dramatic jewelry that stands out in low light.


Choosing the perfect handmade jewelry for any occasion doesn't have to be overwhelming. By taking into account factors such as the occasion, your outfit, personal style and the message you want to convey, you can effortlessly choose jewelry that enhances your overall look and makes you feel confident and beautiful.

So the next time you're getting ready for a special event, keep these 6 simple tips in mind to ensure you choose the perfect accessories every time.
