Buying earrings in New York jewelry stores

A woman can never have too many pairs of earrings. There are gorgeous designs that help you emphasize your features and take your look to the next level. However, to make sure you make the right choice, there are a couple of things you need to think of before buying earrings.

  1. Always consider your face shape

In Ana Luisa’s NYC jewelry collections you will discover a lot of unique earring designs. But this doesn’t mean that you should get all of them. It’s important to know if the design you choose matches your face type.

An inverted triangle face shape looks great with teardrop and chandelier designs that balance your jawline. If you have an oval face, you are lucky. You can wear any type of earrings, but you will look especially good wearing geometric designs that accentuate your cheekbones.  For those of you with round faces, it is best to avoid hoops and choose linear drop earrings instead. Heart-shaped faces are made for statement earrings so go ahead and up your earrings game. A long and narrow face is balanced nicely by hoops, cluster earrings, and short dangles. Last, but not least, those of you with a square face should avoid sharp corners in earrings and choose rounded designs instead.

  1. Consider your other jewelry

If you own a large collection of statement necklaces, you may not want to browse the New York jewelry shops for statement earrings. Instead, choose NYC jewelry that will become a canvass for your chunky necklaces. Studs, threaders, and simple earring designs will look amazing with your necklaces.

  1. Consider the metals in your jewelry box

If you love reading about fashion and jewelry, then you already know that you can mix metals. However, it may prove to be difficult to mix a pair of solid silver earrings with a rose gold necklace. This trend works better for stacking rings, bracelets and layering necklaces. Look for the most prominent metal in your jewelry box when browsing the New York jewelry stores.

Buying necklaces in New York jewelry stores

If you are shopping for necklaces for women, there are a couple of things to think of before purchasing a jewelry piece. Besides considering your other jewelry and the metals that you already own, just like for earrings, you also need to pay attention to the neckline. Before buying NYC jewelry, think about what kind of shirt or dress you will match it with.

A collar necklace works great with off-the-shoulder necklines, as well as with boat and deep-V designs. A choker is versatile and goes great with almost any type of neckline, except for turtlenecks. A princess length necklace (around 17 to 19 inches) has to be either below or above the neckline. We recommend wearing it with a sweetheart neckline. A matinee (20 to 24 inches long) looks nice with some cleavage or even a turtleneck. An opera necklace (28 to 34 inches) is made either for a deep-V or a jewel neckline. Last, but not least, a lariat, which is over 45 inches long looks fabulous with a deep-V neckline, but not-so-great with a turtleneck.

Buying rings in New York jewelry stores

When browsing the New York jewelry stores for rings, you have more freedom. There are no hard rules on how you can wear your rings, but you do have to consider your other jewelry and the color of the gemstone. Pick designs that feature gemstones which will not clash with the color of your outfit. A garnet, for example, doesn’t look very good with an orange dress.

If you want an extra tip, look for rings that you can stack. Stacking rings is very hot right now and the NYC jewelry designs prove it. Up your ring game with a couple of stacked rings to get a fabulous look.

Buying bracelets in New York jewelry stores

For buying bracelets in New York jewelry stores, you have to keep in mind the same rules that apply to rings. But you also have to consider your wrist size. If you want your wrists to seem thinner, avoid both delicate & chunky designs. If you want to create the sensation of a bigger wrist size, go for cuff bracelets that feature gemstones.

Last, but not least, make sure to get a couple of different pieces which you can stack. A leather bracelet, a gemstone cuff, and a gold bangle are great to get started with the stacking trend.

If you are tired of browsing through the New York jewelry stores for unique pieces, go ahead and visit Ana Luisa online jewelry store. You will discover limited-edition NYC jewelry creations which will help you level up your jewelry game.
