Talking jewelry on a Fancy Friday.

This post is made in collaboration with Invaluable. I did not get paid and there was nothing gifted to me(sadly). But I love auctions and vintage jewelry.

Today I wanted to talk about how jewelry styles change with the seasons. Winter jewelry styles different a lot from jewelry you will wear in the summer. For the most part, winter jewelry is seen as more bold and a counterpoint to summer jewelry which is more relaxed. Winter jewelry is usually focused on making a statement, since most of the winter colors are darker. Summer jewelry, on the other hand, can be more form fitting and suggestively accentuating the outfit rather than standing


I got the ideas for this piece from this article by Invaluable called Jewelry Styles for Winter. They have some ideas I agree with but I definitely have some of my own. Invaluable sells vintage jewelry pieces so definitely check them out even just to browse. They have some cool stuff. Take a look at the brooches! I am a big fan of brooches lately and they offer some great ones ( lovely ones with dogs and cats) starting fron $1!jewelry

One thing I agree with Invaluable about is that using cocktail rings to bring color and flair to a dreary winter outfit can be a great option. If you’re wearing grey and black for the most part, that beautiful gemstone will really stand out and attract attention. It’s not an everyday piece though, save it for special

I personally like the look of matching diamonds to an all white outfit. It’s a very sleek and elegant look, and the diamonds simply blend better into a white outfit than black. The black fur with diamonds look is so 1950s. Another tip I have is matching jewelry to accent pieces in the outfit. So if you’re wearing a gold scarf, it might be the time to wear that gold ring. The two will stand out well with grey, black, or navy tones in the rest of the outfit. But you all know that I don’t wear much jewelry. But to save up for a unique ring and buying it on an auction is a great idea. Gerben likes watches. Expensive watches that is…. And he has a Omega  for years now. So also when you want to surprise your other half check this out!jewelry

    I love jewelry and collect it, but I’m guilty of not changing what I wear very often.

    • January 6, 2017 / 10:19 am

      But If you love it then just wear it. I also dont change often!

    I never really thought about jewelry for the seasons!!
    Love the brooch—I’m doing a series on them in a couple weeks, so I’ve totally been concentrating on them!

    • January 6, 2017 / 10:20 am

      I own now about eight brooches because of Jess and you!

    The ring and earrings are beautiful. I’m not a big jewellery wearer either though. My engagement ring and my Bulgari earrings are my most prized possessions!

    • January 6, 2017 / 10:21 am

      Me neither, but I love to browse vintage Jewelry.

    • January 6, 2017 / 10:22 am

      Yes, aren t they! Tres chique!

  4. January 6, 2017 / 10:46 am

    Het ziet er echt beeldig uit.

    • January 6, 2017 / 11:13 am

      Jawel hè!

    I don’t really consider my jewelry to be seasonal although I only wear my heavier statement necklaces in the cooler months…I can’t stand the extra bulk when it’s hot out!

    • January 6, 2017 / 2:28 pm

      No I don t either. In fact, I don t like bracelets in Summer!

  6. January 6, 2017 / 1:17 pm

    Thanks Nancy for that informative post on jewelry. I never really thought about how jewelry differs from winter to summer, but you are right. I love the look of diamonds (even fake ones) with just about any outfit! Ha, ha. I love the bling. Have a great weekend! – Amy

    • January 6, 2017 / 2:28 pm

      Bling bling is always nice isn t it! Thank you Amy, happy weekend!

  7. January 6, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    I’ve been all about rings lately, LOVE the one. Have a splendid weekend!

    • January 6, 2017 / 2:29 pm

      Thank you Andrea! Happy weekend!

  8. January 6, 2017 / 3:17 pm

    I own many, many necklaces, and wear one every day (unless I’m wearing a scarf). I also wear my Fitbit in a Tory Burch bracelet so that’s pretty much the only bracelet that I wear. I don’t own many rings for some reason. And I don’t own any brooches. I’ll have to change that! I don’t know if I change jewelry with the seasons very much…

    Thanks for the link up dear Nancy & have a wonderful weekend!

    P.S.: I haven’t forgotten about the Styled by answers…

    • January 6, 2017 / 3:27 pm

      Haha, I am just waiting patiently!

    • January 6, 2017 / 4:12 pm

      I told Jodie before that I own now eight brooches and for a half year ago I din’t have one. That’s because of you and Jodie that I got an interrest for brooches.

    • January 6, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      Thank you!

  9. January 6, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    lovely jewelry picks!

    • January 6, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      Thank you!

  10. January 6, 2017 / 5:01 pm

    Such pretty and unique pieces of jewelry! I am also looking to add more brooches to my collection and that cute cat piece really caught my eye. Have a wonderful weekend, Nancy!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:33 pm

      I have eight now! Haha, for a few months ago I never wore them! Happy weekend!

    Such a great post theme for wintertime! Winter fashion can be so dreary and drab, especially when you’re dressing just to survive the cold. A colorful gemstone piece is a great tip for adding a pop of color and visual interest. I’ve never really considered jewelry as being seasonal, well, outside of shell jewelry, so this was really interesting to read. Thanks for sharing your tips!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:36 pm

      Thank you! Yes, and like some other bloggers already said, in summertime it doesn t feel nice to wear statement necklaces!

    • January 6, 2017 / 6:37 pm

      They are great right! Happy weekend Vanessa!

    • January 6, 2017 / 7:46 pm

      Thank you. Happy weekend!

    • January 6, 2017 / 10:23 pm

      Thank you dear!

  12. January 6, 2017 / 10:18 pm

    Love that gold cuff bracelet – I have one similar to that from Stella & Dot and I just love wearing it to dress up a more simple outfit. So many great pieces! Thanks so much for hosting – Happy Weekend 🙂

      Thank you, I also love simple outfits with statement jewelry! Happy weekend!

    I have very specific tastes when it comes to jewellery. I prefer sleek, architectural OR baroque, completely OTT pieces. And preferably without semi or precious stones. Just the metal (be it silver or white/yellow gold or rose gold). However, when it comes to precious stones, I’m really not much into diamonds, unless they’re black. I do, however, love Emeralds. Which would explain why my engagement AND wedding rings feature emeralds, and my anniversary ring, a black diamond 🙂 and only rings or things for the wrists. Not really into earrings nor necklaces xoxo

    • January 7, 2017 / 12:27 am

      Its lovely to read how everyone has his own taste in jewelry. I am more into earrings! Happy weekend Sheela!

    I totally agree. Adding a cocktail or statement jewelry piece can jazz up any boring outfit. I love adding them especially if I am wearing all dark =)

      Yes you are right! Happy weekend!

  15. January 7, 2017 / 9:13 am

    Such an interesting question Nancy. I am also guilty of having a few select pieces I wear but on summer vacation I love wearing several beady bracelets that match whatever else I am wearing.

    I have noticed a real trend move from big and bulky to dainty jewelery – tough for me as I love big bulky rings.

    My favourite on this post is the first one – it looks like a Tiffany ring to me.

    xx Yvonne

    • January 7, 2017 / 9:33 am

      Yes, they sell lots of Tiffany Jewelry! I love vintage Jewelry. Happy weekend.

  16. January 7, 2017 / 11:19 am

    I’m a simple kind of girl when it comes to jewelry. I wear my wedding ring, and one other ring. And I wear small loops in my ears. That’s about it.

    But I like the jewelry you’re showing in your post.

    • January 7, 2017 / 4:32 pm

      But that is beautiful too. It depends on what kind a person you are. Thank you.

  17. January 7, 2017 / 3:18 pm

    Ik hou ook echt van vintage en vooral van simpel. Minder is vaak meer. Vind ik dan.. XX

    • January 7, 2017 / 4:34 pm

      Ja, dat vind ik ook. Maar ik kan ook wel met bewondering naar iemand kijken die een heleboel sieraden draagt.

    • January 7, 2017 / 11:16 pm

      Thank you! And they offer other fabulous brooches!

  18. January 8, 2017 / 11:06 am

    Beautiful jewellery, the top piece is stunning 🙂

    • January 8, 2017 / 4:13 pm

      Thank you! And the cat is lovely too!

  19. January 8, 2017 / 6:27 pm

    Adding a statement piece such as the ones you’ve soon adds so much glamor and interest to an outfit! I need to add a broach to my collection. They are so fun!

    • January 8, 2017 / 8:33 pm

      Yes they are! Ik never wore them and now I just love them.

    • January 8, 2017 / 9:19 pm

      They are! Thank you El 🙂

    • January 8, 2017 / 9:55 pm

      Ha ha, yes I would love to have received a ring or something! 🙂 ha ha

  20. January 9, 2017 / 7:13 am

    I, too, have a love for jewelry as my overflowing drawers and storage chests can attest to. thank you for sharing this style perspective on my Fine-Whatever link up.


    • January 9, 2017 / 9:38 am

      Thank you Rena!

  21. January 9, 2017 / 9:56 am

    Jewelry is my weakness! And what attracts me more is a unique, unusual design.

    • January 9, 2017 / 10:40 am

      Yes, by preference made buy a jewelry designer. The one you can design yourself!

    • January 9, 2017 / 12:51 pm

      Thanks! Same to you Gemma! 🙂

    • January 9, 2017 / 8:29 pm

      Thank you!

    • January 9, 2017 / 8:29 pm

      Ha ha, it’s a lovely piece right!

  22. January 10, 2017 / 1:56 pm

    I love all types of jewellery, I’m such a magpie! The ring and earrings (first two photos) are stunning! I’m amazed at just how much jewellery Invaluable has on the website…such beautiful rings!

    • January 10, 2017 / 2:01 pm

      Thank you, yes they have beautiful pieces!

    • January 20, 2017 / 9:17 pm
