When in doubt, put on a pair of diamond stud earrings. This pick was an easy addition to our list of classic jewelry pieces to own. The sparkle of the diamonds flatters any complexion, and the classic style adds elegance to any look. We love these timeless round brilliant studs from Harry Winston.

While diamond studs are a simple, more conservative earring choice, chandelier earrings bring drama to your outfit. Modern chandelier earrings are beautiful, but you can add a bit of history to your collection with a pair of antique chandelier earrings. Find many beautiful fine jewelry choices on 1st Dibs or through your personal jewelry dealer.
