It’s not just your wardrobe that needs some basic must-haves to ensure you always put together a fab look, your jewellery collection is no exception.
We all have drawers and boxes bursting with trinkets and baubles that we hardly ever end up wearing, and only end up in tangled messes at the bottom of our dresser. Instead, we give you a few timeless jewellery pieces that every woman should own - think of them as the accessory equivalents of the LBD. These classic baubles will always come to your rescue for a sophisticated edge and will help you sparkle wherever you go. Here are 9 must have jewellery pieces for you.
1. Pretty Pearls
Nothing speaks of elegance like a pretty pearl necklace - borrow from your mom and throw on any outfit for a classic touch. They can instantly dress up your look with some subtle style without looking like you’re trying too hard. We would pick a pretty set of pearls over garish bling any day.

2. Diamond Studs
Beautiful diamonds are all the sparkle you need to shine bright at any occasion. They bring a refined touch to any ensemble and are definitely worth the investment. A simple pair of diamond studs can take you through a lifetime of style, and can be passed down from generation to generation. After all, a woman’s best friend can never go out of style.

3. A Dainty Necklace
Every lady needs at least one delicate necklace to bring her some girly chic. Just like Carrie’s signature necklace in SATC, which she wore over just about everything. You can slip on a pretty necklace everyday to elevate even a simple white tee or to bring some sparkle to a gorgeous evening dress. It will be your go-to for any occasion and can help make you feel special.

4. Statement Earrings
No jewellery collection is complete without that wow-factor, and a stunning pair of danglers can do just that. Gorgeous jhumkis
are a must when you go traditional. Drop earrings can add a pop of colour and oomph to elevate a drab outfit or just to add an extra fashionable dose to your favourite LBD. The best part about them is that they add the right amount of fabulous drama so you don’t need to wear any other accessories to amp up your look.

5. The Cocktail Ring
Perfect for any dressy occasion, an eye-catching cocktail ring is that one dazzling piece that can complete your whole look. It brings the right amount of glamorous flamboyance to your style. Just make sure to pair it with beautifully manicured fingers of course.

6. The Oversized Watch
There’s a difference between arriving fashionably late and rudely unpunctual, with a chic watch on your wrist you can be sure to never fall in the latter category. A sleek, metallic watch with a large round dial is something you should never leave home without. Add a stylish twist to it by stacking it with pretty bracelets and cuffs.

7. The Everyday Bracelet
It may not be fashionably over-the-top like a large stack of bangles, but a girly bracelet is great for some daily arm candy or to pair with your watch. It could be a glam tennis bracelet or just a thin good-luck charm, either way it brings some effortless style to your everyday wardrobe.

necklace. It’s just what you need to pair with a pretty sari or you can even wear it with a strapless dress to rock some fusion fashion.

9. A Simple Gold/Silver Ring
A simple ring for everyday wear is essential, a woman must have at least one ring on her finger at all times, even if you aren’t married. Plus, it can be really convenient if you're wearing it on your ring finger when you're out with your friends at a bar - it will keep random guys away!
