New York City is undoubtedly one of the world’s fashion capitals. With leading brands lined up one after the other, it is safe to say that fashion trends originate from the city that never sleeps. In addition, several designers flock to New York due to its high fashion industry and unique cultural mixes. These features help shape New York as home to one of the most happening and creative fashion industries globally.
While the bags, clothes and shoes are abundant here, the secret to the fashion is its statement and bold jewellery. NYC hosts some of the essential jewelry brands in the world. Their jewelry happens to be one of a kind.
Here are four key things you should look for when shopping for jewelry in NYC.
You know all the designer names, but do you know the smaller jewelry store names that have high quality pieces? It is best to purchase from a brand that has been around for a few years, has great reviews, has a good collection of pieces and one that is not overly and unjustly priced. A great place to start is here.
Classic vs Trend Based Jewelry
NYC is a place where trends are set. But as we know, trends are fleeting, so following jewelry trends is risky. What is “in” one day, may be “out” the next. I would always advise to pick key basic and statement pieces and sprinkle in trending jewelry, if you love it. Pieces that will never go out of style are gold or silver chain necklaces, like this one. Or even classic gold hoops like these.
This is one of the most important aspects of jewelry you need to look at. Of course there is solid gold and platinum jewelry. But if you are looking for more affordable pieces, then you should look for jewelry using 18k gold with a stainless steel base. This will ensure that it is anti-tarnish and can be worn for years and years to come!
Always look for the word “hypoallergenic” when purchasing jewelry.
