How To Accessorize with Gems so You’re a Sparkly Senior with Style - GemSelect

Just because you’re getting older, it doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing trendy jewelry. And you certainly shouldn’t wear jewelry to try to look younger. Rather, jewelry should complement your style as a 60-plus woman. You should wear it with pride and feel good about what it tells the world about you. When choosing gems with which to accessorize your outfit as a 60-plus woman, it’s good to stay updated on the latest jewelry trends that highlight the most popular gems, but also make them your own – remember, not every gemstone trend is going to work with your uniqueness. Here are some trends and tips to keep you looking sophisticated. 

Go Supersized
Large groups of gems are trendy, so don’t be afraid of gemstones clustered together on a ring or statement necklace. This is a great way to be bold and stones of different colors are sure to add some brightness to your outfit. The key is to stick to one jewelry item, such as a necklace or bracelet, if you like large gemstone styles, so that you don’t create a cluttered effect. A benefit of wearing oversized jewelry when you’re over 60 is that it can draw attention away from areas of your body you don’t like. For instance, if you don’t like your midsection, a large statement necklace will pull attention upwards. 

Create Some Contrast
If you choose a gemstone and dress of the same color, you risk a boring look. It’s more stylish to create a bit of contrast. For instance, if you’re wearing a purple dress, choose a yellow pendant gemstone necklace. This makes you look more striking.

It can help to use the color wheel when trying to find out which colors to match. Complementary colors are those that are opposite each other on the wheel. For instance, blue goes with orange and yellow is a good match for blue-violet. 

Blend Different Eras 
You can also contrast modern with vintage looks. For instance, if you love wearing vintage clothing, such as a gray vintage checked coat, a modern onyx diamond ring can update the look. This modern gem refreshes your appearance without making any major changes to what you wear, so you can still feel comfortable. A great way to learn how to mix different stones and styles is to take a jewelry making course. That could be really fun to do with friends! If that’s not really your thing, dare to experiment with different looks and ask for help from your friends when picking out clothing and jewelry before a party.

Choose Jewel Tones 
Dressing when you’re over 60 should be about emphasizing your femininity, such as with the use of soft cashmere, silk, faux fur and satin. Just because you’re not 30 anymore, it doesn’t mean you can’t be sensual! A bit of luxury with rich colors such as hunter green and burgundy work beautifully to make your overall appearance more sophisticated and sensual. Jewelry is an important accessory here. You can make the most of the rich-colored gemstones that are trendy now, so don’t be afraid to choose dark colors, such as black, gray and brown. Jewel tones, both in fashion and gemstones, are great when you’re over 60 because they illuminate skin tone, making you glow – and they work with every skin tone!

Gemstones are your best friend. They can take a plain outfit and make it fabulous. The key is to know how to make jewels work so that they flatter your style and make you glow. By following the above gemstone and fashion tips, you’ll be classy, sophisticated and flaunt your unique style.
