Did you receive gift cards for Christmas?  

Are you shopping the after-Christmas sales?

Exchanging gifts?  

Maybe it’s time to build your jewelry wardrobe!  

My jewelry “collection” is a mess.  I have pieces from here and there, gifts I received over the years, but calling it a “collection” or a “wardrobe” is stretching the definition.  Some of it is out-of-style and needs to go in the Garage Sale box and I have a mish-mash of looks.

Updating and completing your must-have jewelry wardrobe is simple thanks to these tips from leading fashion jewelry company Carolee. The esteemed, 40-year-old American brand has several new collections this month at leading department stores, and is celebrating by offering these tips so you’ll never be left reaching for that critical piece:

1. Start with a Classic Daytime Earring

Remember those hoop earrings that you would reach for every day and would fit every occasion?  I had some that I loved, but now I’ve lost one or both of them.  (Do you keep the singleton earring, when you lose one?  It seems like a sure way to find the lost one is to throw away the singleton!)

The key to creating a go-to jewelry wardrobe is to start with pieces that are versatile. Your fundamental look should always begin with a great hoop earring. From jeans to business attire, a hoop is perfect. And did you know that a hoop gracefully frames (and thins!) your face and adds a feminine touch.

Carolee’s new Gilded Glimpse Ribbed Hoops are made in classic yet on-trend yellow gold.  Did you notice that there is more and more gold returning to the jewelry stage?  At just under an inch in diameter, their go-with-everything scale and interesting ribbed texture make them the first must-have staple of the season.

2. Find a go-to Short Necklace

When you are very young, a simple thin chain is sweet.  But when you become a mom or get into your mid-twenties or more, you need more of a statement.  Something with texture and boldness that gets attention!me neckline with a tailored yet pretty touch. A great wear-it-everywhere look is the Gilded Glimpse Woven Beaded Collar necklace.  Jet black glass faceted beads are the center piece of this style, with graduated hand-polished simulated pearl beads in a rich golden tone completing this versatile, trend-worthy look.  And it has an adjustable closure, so you can achieve the perfect length for your neckline and size.

3. Layer in Some Long Necklaces

To add a sexy, feminine look layer in some longer necklaces.  Creating movement and layers adds a feeling of softness and fun! Carolee offers delicate, pearl and crystal embellished chains in generous lengths such as 36-inches or 42-inches, which can be doubled for extra layers of glamour. When shopping for these layering pieces, think about styles that will go with almost anything you’re wearing – gold, pearls and jet black stones are go-to finishes that move from outfit to outfit with ease. Carolee’s new layering necklaces include two beautiful choices from the Gilded Glimpse Collection, with golden-toned hand polished simulated pearls, rich yellow gold tone links and jet crystals. Another way to go is to get something with multi colors, to pick up a hint of whatever tone you’re wearing, such as the Mixed Media Illusion 36-inch necklace from Carolee’s new Mirror Image collection.

4. Add a Statement Piece

Sometimes you have a need for “WOW”.  Whether you are adding it a little black dress or an office outfit, no jewelry wardrobe is complete without an attention-getting, statement piece.  Adding a high-drama choker-length or bib necklace expresses your personality and completes your outfit for a formal event or evening.

A statement piece that should express your personality, so choose something you particularly love. Carolee has just introduced some statement sparklers that are affordable enough to stock up on. The Mirror Image Pearl Cluster Collar features silky golden graduated pearls with clusters of sparkling multicolored crystals, while the 6-row Evelyn Torsade Necklace mixes strands of the luminous golden pearls with strands of the crystals, all culminating in a gold, pearl and crystal embellished magnetic closure that may be worn concealed by your hairstyle on one occasion and turned around to the off-center 5 o’clock or seven o’clock position on another evening. Adding either of these extraordinary statement pieces to your jewelry wardrobe also brings with it a beautiful benefit: Carolee will donate $5 from the sale of each piece in the Mirror Image Collection to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

5. For Special Occasions – Light Up Your Face

Drop earrings are the jewelry equivalent of adding long eyelashes and smoky liner to your makeup. They create a focal point that calls attention to your face, lights up your eyes and says, “it’s an occasion”. Whether you choose a chandelier, a doorknocker or a shoulder- duster style, these beauties are bound to make you feel alluring for a special night. Like your favorite eyeliner that makes the perfect cat-eye, you’ll want a couple of pairs of statement drop earrings that go with many styles. Carolee’s Mirror Image collection offers a sparkling Linear Drop Clip-on Earring, which stars deep bronze-toned, pear-shaped, faceted glass stones. The large center stone is surrounded by two rows of shimmering mink-hued crystals that will act like magnets to put all eyes on the wearer. This stunning pair of earrings also benefits cancer research.

Another option for nighttime are Carolee’s Gilded Glimpse Linear Jet Black Chandelier earrings. Carved black openwork silhouettes drop from gold-encircled jet-black crystals and are finished with a trio of faceted black beads, which dance and reflect the light just like the crystals of a black chandelier.

When you’re out shopping today or in the coming days, make sure to go to the jewelry department and see these in person!  Update your jewelry wardrobe, fill out the pieces you need.  And save the receipt because if you enter below, you may win.  One lucky KLY reader is going to win a jewelry collection from Carolee!!
