It can be tricky to strike the right balance with workwear jewelry. You want to wear jewelry that’s polished and stylish, without crossing the line into being too flashy. And the definition of “too flashy” will vary depending on where you work, since some offices are much more formal than others.
To help you find your new go-to work jewelry regardless of where you work, the JustDesi jewelry experts have selected seven jewelry designs that will look at-home in any office. We’re featuring pieces of jewelry that will be appropriate for any work environment, including more conservative office environments, yet still feel fresh and stylish.
Chic Diamond Studs
Stud earrings are the perfect complement to every kind of office wear. Small studs add just the right amount of sparkle, while also being simple enough to work with any outfit.
Our favorite stud option for work is a classic pair of diamond studs. Unlike more colorful gemstones, diamonds go with everything. They’re also truly timeless, so a pair of diamond studs is an investment you can enjoy wearing for decades to come.
You can go one of two ways with diamond studs. You can opt for a pair of simple solitaire diamond studs, or choose a more intricate design. We love our Three Stone Bezel Studs for the latter option, as they provide extra visual interest while still looking quite modern and sleek.
Elegant Chain Necklaces
A long chain necklace offers a sophisticated way to accessorize at work. It looks lovely with suits, sweaters, and blouses, and complements virtually every neckline. Whether your office dress code is casual, business casual, or business formal, a long chain necklace will be a welcome addition to your daily look.
Our favorite long chain necklace of the moment is our Pearl and Diamond Layering Necklace. Featuring dazzling diamonds and pretty pearls, it’s a statement necklace that can only be described as endlessly elegant.
Delicate Pendant Necklaces
A simple pendant necklace is the ideal workwear accessory for those who don’t want to think much about getting dressed in the morning. A pendant necklace is something you can throw on and keep on, since it’s both comfortable and versatile. It’s an effortless way to look more polished every day.
For more casual workplaces, you can choose a pendant with a bit more personality. For more conservative workplaces, we recommend something simple yet stunning, like our Oval Halo Diamond Necklace.
Understated Hoop Earrings
A general rule of thumb for workplace earrings is to avoid anything especially dangly or flashy, and stick to simpler designs instead. Studs fit this bill, but are not your only option. An understated pair of hoop earrings is also an excellent choice.
It’s best to stick to small hoops for most work environments, so we love our best selling Huggie Hoops for this category. This delicate pair of earrings will add a chic touch to your look and become your new favorite live-in piece.
Stylish Stackable Rings
Stackable rings can help you enhance your style while simultaneously keeping your overall look work appropriate. Delicate diamond rings are an excellent option, as are most solid gold or silver rings.
If you want to freshen up your stackable ring collection with a new addition, we recommend our Baguette Stackable Band. It’s delicate enough to wear at work, while also having a unique quality. This ring’s use of both brilliant cut and step cut diamonds gives it a stand out beauty.
Bold Statement Rings
If you’re a fan of statement pieces and you also have a more formal office environment, you may be unsure how to embrace your love of bold accessories at work. Our solution: a powerful statement ring. If you go for a chunkier style with little to no bling, a statement ring can be a great accessory for any workplace.
Our top statement ring recommendation for work is our Solid Gold Signet Ring. It’s bold and beautiful, and can be customized with the engraving of your choosing. It’s the perfect way to round out a modern work outfit.
Classic Bangle Bracelets
One thing to keep in mind when you wear jewelry at work is noise. In most workplaces, it’s not appropriate to wear jewelry that makes a lot of noise, since that can be distracting for your co-workers. Bracelets can be a major offender when it comes to volume, especially chain bracelets, charm bracelets, and any bracelet stack.
If you want to wear a bracelet that’s stylish without being noisy, a single bangle bracelet is an excellent option. We love slim diamond bangles, like our Prong Set Diamond Station Bangle, for work. A slim diamond bangle is traditional enough to wear to any workplace, but also special enough to help you transition your look from day to night.
