Rhinestone jewelry is an affordable option when you want pieces to match particular outfits without spending a fortune on more expensive items. A rhinestone necklace can last a long time when it's properly cared for. In most lighting, it is difficult to tell rhinestones from pricier jewelry, so rhinestones are great for wearing to work and to special events when you find just the perfect piece to match your dress.
A simple pendant necklace can offer the perfect complement to a suit or dress. Silver pendants set off dark and deep colored dresses and suits, like black, navy and purple. To make sure your rhinestone necklace lasts for a long time, clean it each time you wear it. To clean rhinestone jewelry, soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and gently wipe the piece. Allow it to dry before storing it. Keep water away from your jewelry and never try to use gold or silver jewelry cleaner on costume jewelry.
For a bolder look than a simple pendant, consider a rope necklace. Yellow or gold tinted necklaces sparkle on the same dark colors as silver, but also go marvelously with yellows, oranges, blues and greens. Fashion advisors once said to wear only silver jewelry with other silver and gold with gold, but trends have changed. Yellow and silver pieces blend marvelously and are an excellent way to spice up a monochrome look like solid white or gray.
The perfect necklace calls for the right earrings. When you opt for a simple pendant necklace, you can choose a simple set of earrings to match or bring the attention to your face with a pair of bold, dazzling earrings. Rhinestone chain earrings and drop earrings are just the right amount of bold for evenings out. For the office, try stud or small hoop earrings and swap to a larger set before going out to dinner.
To finalize your accessories, you'll need rhinestone bracelets. For daytime, a bangle or two should suffice. When you're ready to head to the restaurant, add three to five more. This is a quick and easy way to transition your work outfits into evening attire. Most rhinestone necklaces and jewelry are not made with nickel, making it an excellent choice for people with skin allergies. Selections are available by Carolee, Kenneth Cole New York, Vatican and others.
