When you're bundled up to the nines, it's easy to overlook jewelry, but that would be a wardrobe mistake (if you love to wear jewelry anyway). The key to choosing jewelry in the winter is to stick to relatively substantial pieces that can stand up to sweaters and coats. I also gravitate toward festive jewelry this time of year that's a bit fancier than what I'd wear in, say, July. That said, you don't have to spend a lot of money on your winter jewelry. But if you do splurge a bit, it'll be a worthy one if it's a piece you can wear over and over.
Below, I've compiled some of my favorite winter jewelry pieces, all of which are under $500 (well, almost) and will easily make whatever you're wearing look more expensive. That's because they look luxe and elevated on their own, which rubs off on your look as a whole. Scroll on to shop the selection of eye candy that'll take your winter wardrobe to the next level.
I plan on wearing these to all the holiday parties.
Now that's a cocktail ring.
If you're going to wear a bracelet this time of year, it might as well be sparkly.
This is pretty much the only jewelry piece you need to wear at this time.
If you're really going for it, order two and wear them stacked.
These are perfect for casual and dressy outfits alike.
These look like vintage earrings (without the hunt).
