Build a Jewelry Wardrobe: Make a Statement with a Bracelet or Ring

This is the final post in a series about how to build a jewelry wardrobe with pieces from Stella & Dot.

Yesterday, I wrote about how to make a statement with the Palomino Necklace and the Capri Chandelier earrings. Today I’m going to show you how to wear the Bello Bangle and Jules Cocktail Ring for maximum effect.

Statement Bracelet

Bello Bangle

This bracelet is stunning! It is the perfect statement piece because you can’t take your eyes off of it. Something this special deserves to be the center of attention, so when I wear a bracelet like this, I downplay the rest of my jewelry. Here are two ways to dazzle a crowd with the Bello Bangle:

Let’s take this bracelet out for a spin!

The beauty of this bracelet (besides its, well, beauty) is that it marries luxury and bad-ass. Yes, I said bad-ass! White jeans, a flowy top in one of the season’s hottest colors, and some cute wedges. Nothing out of the ordinary. Add the Bello Bangle, and you can make a statement without even trying! The navy dress in the second outfit is sweet and adorable, the neon sweater is an unexpected addition, and the gold Tory Burch flats and the nautical handbag give this combo a preppy feel. Then you put on the bangle. The snakeskin pattern keeps this outfit from being too precious, and I absolutely love it!

Statement Ring

Jules Ring

The picture does not do this ring justice! In real life, the stones have a richer hue, and the crystals catch the light, making the ring sophisticated and playful. Not just for cocktails anymore, the Jules Ring is a fun statement piece, and  has an adjustable band, so you never have to worry if it will fit. I styled this ring two ways:

Simple necklace and earrings let the Jules Ring shine.

At prices ranging from $49 to $138, the four statement pieces I featured in this post and this one will bring you fame, fortune and everlasting happiness. Well, maybe not, but they’ll round out your jewelry wardrobe and give you a great value. Next time you put on your tried-and-true work outfit and reach for your favorite necklace or the same old earrings, shop your jewelry box and throw on a statement piece. You’ll be glad you did!

Do you have a favorite bracelet or ring that other people always notice when you wear it? Tell me about it in the comments!
