We can find no reason not to wear fancy shoes with our favorite go-to jeans or style a dress we wore to a wedding one weekend with a pair of sneakers for brunch the following. So why not take the same approach with our special-occasion jewelry?
Statement earrings and sparkly baubles of all sorts might elevate an ensemble for a fancy affair, but if you’re not also finding ways to sprinkle them into every other outfit you wear, well, that’s a missed opportunity in our book. In this spirit, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pieces of special-occasion jewelry that we’d argue could be worn for every other occasion: black tie to a bodega run, anniversary dinner to annual checkup. No event will seem too mundane to sport these “special occasion” designs. Scroll down to shop them all.

This design might warrant a few double-takes...in a good way!
This kind of precious metal deserves to be taken out more often than on occasion.

Can't choose between pearls and stones? Don't.

When in doubt, add a tassel.
