International Womenís Day & Our Favourite Icons of Jewellery

This past week on March 8, International Women's Day was celebrated around the globe to praise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - and also to take a stance on accelerating gender balance. We were excited to take part in this celebration since Lemuria Jewels is a female-owned business that aims to celebrate and empower women everyday.

In honour of International Women's Day, weíll be sharing some of the different ways you can use jewellery to express yourself to be the trailblazer that you are! We even included some of our favourite style icons who embody everything we admire about the modern woman.

Statement Jewellery

Sometimes, all you just need is one piece to make an impact. Those who prefer colourful, chunky jewellery pieces are full of confident and willpower. Itís a sign that youíre fearless in getting out there and being seen. So when you want to feel bold and stand out, reach for a statement piece whether itís a chunky gold necklace or a bright gemstone ring.

Style icon, Elizabeth Taylor once proclaimed that ďLife without earrings is empty!Ē Sheís a classic example of someone who used statement jewellery, such as chandelier earrings and diamond encrusted tiaras, to turn herself into an symbol of intrigue.

Classic Jewellery

Classic jewellery is perfect for traditionalists who prefer to stay in with close friends and family. If you fall into this category, then itís your poised and quiet demeanor that gets you noticed in crowded room. Incorporating a some key pieces into your look, such as layered pearl necklaces or a solitaire diamond ring, is a great way to show off your thoughtful personality.

Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of class and always elevated her style with a few carefully-chosen jewels. She knew that at any given moment, all you need is a piece of fine jewellery to transform your look.

Minimal Jewellery

If your style and personality is more pared back, itís better not to drench yourself in diamonds. Since everything you wear is probably chosen with great care and detail, opt for delicate pieces such as a few thin gold rings or a soft-hued pendant necklace. Itís a surefire way of showing that you never settle for less.

Grace Kellyís timeless and elegant style was always spruced up with a few understated pieces, be it a strand of pearls, collar necklace, or stud earrings. She always looked iconic! Her jewellery style shows us that you donít have to be loud to be powerful.

Antique Jewellery

Antique jewellery and vintage-inspired pieces are for trendsetters who desire pieces that are different from the standard. Those who prefer these one-of-a-kind gems are sentimental and unconventional individuals who challenge the norm.

Kate Moss is a trendsetter and frequent wearer of antique pieces who continually inspires those around her. We love how she never shies away from making a statement. Sheís a great reminder and role model that your individuality is what makes a difference in the world.
