5 Jewelry Staples Everyone Needs

Most people have jewelry staples they wear every day. If you’re trying to curate your ideal daily jewelry look, there are some pieces you should definitely include. From earrings to bracelets, here are the staples we think everyone should have in their jewelry box. 

What are Jewelry Staples?

Jewelry staples are pieces of jewelry that one wears (almost) every day. When it comes to wardrobe or jewelry, the term "staple" refers to something that will not go out of style or that goes with everything, and thus can be worn with anything. Whether you are looking for a simple staple or something bold, we've got you covered.

Diamond Studs

Diamond studs are genuinely the perfect earrings for everyday wear. These earrings go with everything and add the perfect subtle sparkle to any outfit. Traditional diamond studs have a single diamond in a four-prong setting. However, there are various takes on the classic look, including three-prong and six-prong.

Though the diamond is the statement element with these studs, you can choose your metal color and setting to personalize the look of your studs. Diamond studs come in various carat sizes, giving you some flexibility with your budget. 

If you like the idea of a diamond stud but don’t want a single large diamond, consider diamond cluster earrings. These earrings look similar to a single diamond, but they’re made of a cluster of smaller diamonds. You can get these cluster studs in a classic round shape or other unique options, like a sunburst.

Lauren B can help you design the ideal diamond stud for your everyday look. Regardless of size, setting, shape, natural or lab-created, we can design the perfect studs for you.

Tennis Bracelets

Tennis bracelets are classic staples because they’re simple, low profile, and absolutely stunning. These bracelets got their name in 1978 when Chris Evert (a famous tennis player) stopped a match because she lost her diamond line bracelet during the US Open. If you can wear this bracelet while playing tennis, you can wear it anytime. 

A traditional tennis bracelet has a single line of diamonds that goes around the entire wrist. The most popular design is a four-prong setting with a single row of round diamonds. However, tennis bracelets can include a variety of gemstones, diamond shapes, and settings.

Some tennis bracelets even have more than one line of diamonds, such as a three-strand tennis bracelet. Most tennis bracelets are set in white gold, but you can choose a different metal color to match the rest of your staples. The only “rule” for tennis bracelets is that they should be a continuous line of gemstones. 

You can use lab-created or natural diamonds to curate the perfect tennis bracelet. Whether you want the traditional look or a mix of diamond shapes, there’s a tennis bracelet that is perfect for you.

Pendant Necklace

A pendant necklace is technically two pieces of jewelry combined. A necklace is a jewelry piece worn around your neck, while a pendant is a small piece of jewelry that is hung onto the necklace itself. 

Pendant necklaces differ from other necklaces because of the attachment put onto the chain. A pendant necklace makes more of a statement than a chain necklace, making it an eye-catching staple to add to your collection.

Pendants come in various styles. Many pendant necklaces will feature a diamond. The center stone can come in multiple shapes and sizes, making it a versatile choice. If you’re looking for a gemstone that adds a pop of color, you can choose a sapphire, emerald, or ruby for your pendant. Adding a diamond halo surrounding the color gemstone can make a unique pendant.

Huggie Hoops

Huggie hoop earrings are tiny hoops that hug your earlobe, allowing them to fit snugly and without a big gap. This style makes them an excellent option for everyday wear. There are several styles of huggie hoops, including plain metal, pave huggies with diamonds, and even some with charms or drops. 

Huggies are more affordable than other, larger hoops while still providing the statement look of a hoop earring. If you have multiple ear piercings, wearing multiple huggies in one ear is a cute statement look that has become increasingly popular over recent years. 

Some people prefer huggies over diamond studs because they’re less likely to poke the side of your head than a stud earring. This makes huggies incredibly wearable and the go-to daily staple earring for many jewelry lovers.

Diamond Hoops

Of course, no jewelry collection is complete without a stunning set of diamond hoop earrings. While you may immediately think of large, circular hoops, diamond hoops come in many sizes and styles. 

The classic diamond hoop is a medium to large-size diamond-encrusted earring. Most of these hoops will have small diamonds all the way around the earring. This creates a stunning appearance and a piece of jewelry that will sparkle anytime the light hits it.

However, fully encrusted, large diamond hoops can be expensive. Fortunately, you can opt for smaller hoops and still get the show-stopping style. If you love the look of large hoop earrings but don’t want the style or weight of traditional diamond hoops, there are options for that as well. Choose a style like the bezel diamond large hoop earrings, which showcase a single diamond in the center of the hoop. This subtle style is still stunning and versatile.

How Many of These Staples Do You Own?

If you don’t have at least one of each of the staples mentioned above, it’s time to complete your collection. Lauren B can custom-design any of these staples and other jewelry. You will find the perfect options whether you want lab-created or natural diamonds. Whether you prefer big or small diamonds, round or square, these staples are a must-have for all jewelry lovers.
