How to Create a Gold Jewelry Capsule

Jewelry basics every collection needs

There are just some pieces every jewelry collection needs. The ones that stand out on their own, but also play well with everything else in your collection. Cue our gold best sellers. Think of these as the white t-shirt and jeans of your jewelry box — they’re essential. 

Capsule Earrings

Let’s start at the top with all the gold earrings you need and how to style them together. Every earring collection needs a basic hoop, dangle earring, huggie earring, and stud earring. If these are in your jewelry box, any look is achievable. (Psst…if you don’t have a lot of piercings to create a stack, you’ll also want our ear cuffs in your collection!) 

You could create a simple ear stack with a huggie and stud or something more eye catching like Kristin’s ear stack. To recreate Kristin’s look, all you need is your basic hoop, dangle earring, and stud — it’s that easy once you have a capsule!

Capsule Necklaces

On to the next — gold necklaces. There are so many possibilities when it comes to necklaces, but we’re here to help you find the right ones and share our must-have styling tips. 

The styles you need in your capsule collection are: chain necklace, statement necklace, and pendant necklace. Sometimes a necklace falls under one of these categories and other times a necklace can fall under all three, which makes it a true must-have (like our Atocha Necklace!)

Our Merchandising Manager and resident stylist Victoria McCutchen says that when creating a necklace capsule it’s important to make sure every necklace is easy to layer. 

“The more you wear, the better. When it comes to layering your necklaces, variation is key. It’s super important to have different lengths and textures, that way you can create endless stacks from your capsule pieces,” McCutchen said. 

This variation will also make sure that you aren’t repeating styles in your collection, but instead have unique necklaces that all play well together.

Capsule Rings

Gold rings are the everyday staple we bet you’ll always have on, no matter the look or occasion. As you’re creating a capsule collection, be sure you have these styles: a simple band, a shiny ring, a timeless statement ring, and a pre-layered ring stack. 

For us, the most important thing when shopping for capsule rings is making sure they can stack and layer together. This is exactly why we created the Vintage 5 Layered Ring Set. This gold ring stack has it all — simple bands and shimmery bands — making it the ultimate (and easiest) capsule must-have.

Capsule Bracelets

Bracelets are the arm candy of your jewelry capsule and we know just the pieces you need — chain bracelet, tennis bracelet, and cuff bracelet. If you have these three staples in your collection you’ll always have a bracelet to pair with your look.

Each style can be worn on its own, mixed and matched with each other, or worn all together. Not to mention just how versatile cuff bracelets truly are. Name another bracelet that can be worn up on your arm and around your wrist…we’ll wait.

Now that you know all the best jewelry basics, create your very own gold jewelry capsule that’s sure to take you from day to night.
