  • 3 Essential Style Tips on Wearing Statement Jewellery

    While subtle pieces of jewellery are great for complementing your outfit, it has be said there’s nothing like wearing a big, bold piece of statement jewellery. From chunky designer rings to attention grabbing necklaces, there’s no denying that statement jewellery is a lot of fun to wear.

    To get the most out of these big, dramatic pieces, it’s important to be mindful of how they work in context with the rest of your look. Here at Acotis Jewellery, we’re proud to stock an extensive range of men’s and women’s designer jewellery that is sure to make a statement. Here’s how you can pull it off successfully:

    1. Think Simple

    Keeping things simple is almost always a winner when it comes to fashion, and jewellery is no exception. Statement jewellery, by its very nature, is bold and likely to attract attention, so it’s easy to over-crowd your look if you’re not careful. While you may be tempted to wear all your gorgeous pieces at once, doing so is highly likely to result in a busy, unfocused look. Avoid this by keeping things simple. Sticking to a singular statement piece is a safe option, but you can get away with wearing more if you avoid wearing them in close proximity to each other. For example, if you want to flaunt a striking designer ring, avoid wearing it at the same time as a statement bracelet as the pieces will probably clash and take away from the other’s beauty.

    1. Choose Designer Jewellery That Complements Your Features

    Perhaps the most important rule when buying designer jewellery is to always go for pieces that are suited to your unique personal features. Simply put, just because a piece of jewellery looks good on a model or mannequin doesn’t necessarily mean that it is right for you. For instance, when choosing earrings be sure to opt for a pair that complement the shape of your face, your natural skin tone and your hairstyle. Meanwhile, when it comes to designer rings, the width of the band and the cut of the stone can all affect how your fingers and hands look.

    1. Consider How Your Designer Jewellery Ties Your Outfit Together

    Remember that your choice of jewellery is just one part of the puzzle. To really get the most out of your statement jewellery, take some time to ensure the piece works in context with what you’re wearing and won’t clash with your outfit. Materials featuring busy patterns, bold colours or intricate detailing can draw focus away from your jewellery and may be jarring next to statement pieces.  In many cases, choosing clothes with simple cuts and block, neutral colours is a great way to create a canvas against which your statement jewellery can really shine.

  • Finding Jewellery That Suits Your Style

    Finding Jewellery That Suits Your Style

    We all have our own personal style that we express in everything from our clothes to accessories. However, it can be hard to find the right jewellery to match our styles. You may have a few pieces that have been gifted or even handed down, but how do you choose the right jewellery to suit your everyday and special occasion outfits? Here are some tips for finding jewellery that’ll match your wardrobe.

    If you like to keep it simple, then you can let your jewellery do the talking. If you are going out in a little black dress, then choosing a statement piece of designer jewellery can really liven up an outfit and give it an elegant look. For day to day wear, look for contemporary silver pieces, perhaps with interesting textures or abstract designs to add interest to your outfit.

    Hipster looks

    If you like your outfits to be on-trend and ahead of the crowd, then make sure your jewellery is too. Some big looks for 2018 include:
    • Chandelier earrings
    • Layered bracelets
    • Floral necklaces
    Tiaras

    Of course, you can have a lot of fun with jewellery, and if you like the hipster style you can go for something a bit more unusual. Find women’s jewellery in bold colours, or opt for unique shapes that are as individual as you are.

    Glitz and glamour

    If you like to add glitz and glamour to your look, opt for classic styles with plenty of bling. A pair of designer earrings with diamonds, or something classic like sapphires, can add a stylish touch to your outfit. If you’re going to wear a lot of sequins or glitter, don’t overload by wearing big jewellery. Just a few simple pieces will make a much bigger statement.

    Sporty or casual

    Even if your look is quite casual, you can still upgrade your look with some simple jewellery. Opt for simple, stylish pieces that can be worn with a jumper and jeans. Even designer bracelets such as a bangle can make a big difference. Try not to choose anything that’s oversized or will get in the way, especially if you’re not used to wearing jewellery very often.

    Jewellery to suit your face shape

    As well as your personal style, you should think about whether your jewellery will suit your face shape. The types of jewellery that match face shapes are:

    • Oval – this proportioned face shape suits most styles

    • Round – wear jewellery that distracts from a round face, such as long dangly earrings or a long pendant

    • Square – soften your face shape with tear drop or chandelier earrings, and avoid chokers

    • Rectangular – opt for a statement necklace and small hoops to draw attention from angular features

    • Heart shaped – chunky necklaces and earrings that dangle to the jawline can balance out a heart shaped face

    Find jewellery that suits the look you’re going for at Acotis Jewellery. Browse and buy online, with excellent prices available on top brands.

  • Choosing the Right Piece of Jewellery for Valentine’s Day

    Choosing the Right Piece of Jewellery for Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s day is one of the most popular occasions for giving jewellery. After all, there aren’t many gifts that are as romantic, and will be treasured for life. However, shopping for jewellery can be a daunting task, and there are so many styles and looks available, how do you choose? Here are some ways you can find the right Valentine’s day gift.

    See what jewellery she already wears

    The best way to see what kind of jewellery a woman might like is to pay attention to what she already wears. Does she have a favourite piece of designer jewellery already? Does she keep it simple, or go for large statement pieces? Pay attention to:
    • What metals she wears – does she like yellow or rose gold, or prefer silver?
    • The gems she likes – does she like coloured gemstones, or prefer classic looks like diamonds?
    • The shapes she wears – does she wear stud or drop earrings? Thin or thick chains?

    Look at her collection

    Some women own charm bracelets, stacking rings, or other collectable items from the same brand. For example, Trollbeads are popular in women’s jewellery, as are Thomas Sabo charms, and if your other half likes these brands, then it makes shopping much easier. Choose a Valentine’s themed charm from one of these collections so she’ll always remember your special day.

    Think about her style

    Is she someone who spends a lot of time on her appearance, or someone who is more practical? If she enjoys dressing up, she might want something like designer bangles with lots of sparkle, or more of a statement piece. If she doesn’t wear a lot of jewellery, but you want her to have something special, then something like a watch might be a better gift.

    Get the right size

    Most jewellery such as bracelets and necklaces will be adjustable, so it’s difficult to buy the wrong size. However, if you’re buying designer rings, you will want to know her ring size. You can find ring sizers online that can be printed for reference, or sometimes get a free one from a local jeweller. Find a ring that she wears often, and you can then measure it against the chart for the perfect fit. Don’t worry if it’s not quite right. You can exchange it for the right size, or get rings resized cheaply.

    Trust your instinct

    Many people are nervous about jewellery shopping, and can be overwhelmed by the choice, so take your time and trust your instincts. By shopping for designer chains and other jewellery online, you can browse without the hassle, and simply bookmark your favourites. You can then go back and decide which ones you like the best, and decide which one to give as a gift. As long as it comes from the heart, she’s bound to love her Valentine’s gift.
    Browse our range of designer jewellery and buy online at Acotis Jewellery. With many different styles available, you’re bound to find something perfect for her.

  • Accessorise your style with Great Jewellery From Acotis Diamonds

    Jewellery has had a significant meaning for both men and women across the globe over centuries. In some cultures, women's jewellery is seen more than just decoration and has a lot of value added to it. In today's world, there are so many inspiring and beautiful pieces available on the market, that they can provide countless styling options. Using what you wear strategically is an important tool for any woman, especially in the business world. The key is to learn which pieces, whether they be designer jewellery items or not, add the best finishing touches to your outfit. Acotis Jewellery, a leading provider of designer jewellery and accessories in the UK, have put together the following jewellery tips and tricks to help you get it right every time.

    Add value to your outfit

    Over or under accessorising are common jewellery errors and should be avoided at all costs. Just because a piece is pretty or has sentimental value, it does not mean you should wear it with every outfit. It’s also important to bear in mind, that just because you are a professional, you can't have fun with jewellery. And that goes for men's jewellery too. Links of London have a great collection of designer cuff links on the Acotis Jewellery website which, would suit any men's shirt or jacket.

    Make it proportional to your facial features and body frame

    When designer jewellery is worn well, the focus of the beholder's eye should still be on you. Jewellery can either support or divert this objective. For example, layering on necklaces can help lift an outfit, but if you overdo it, you can appear swamped by it. The length of necklaces should also be given special attention. A small choker piece is more suitable for a night out, while delicate designer necklaces, like those offered by Swarovski, work well as everyday wear.
    Jewellery should complement skin tone and outfit

    Picking jewellery that illuminates your skin tone should be considered as it can be very flattering. There are a wide range of colours and gemstones out there, such as gold, silver, rose gold, emerald, and amethyst, that will do wonders for both your outfit and skin. Play around with different colours to find jewellery pieces that suit you. Gold tones work well on most women, regardless of their skin tone. Check out the various gold designer jewellery items offered by Thomas Sabo. They do some clever gold designer earrings, which will have heads turning.

    Ensure jewellery pieces are versatile

    A great jewellery buy is when it is both pretty and complements several of your outfits. This is where matching jewellery pieces are not a good investment. It leaves you limited to how many times you can wear them. Instead, it's worth investing in statement designer jewellery pieces that you can wear time and time again. Designer charms are a great way of getting maximum wear from one jewellery item. You can create your very own fabulous charm bracelets that are unique to you.
