The fashion and jewellery accessories that make or break your image.

There is no doubt that in fashion and jewellery accessories, jewellery accessories always shine as its most attractive and important part of your overall appearance.

If you are in the office or attending an important formal event, here is where you can really do SO well or SO badly, by the way!

We will remind you of the epic phrase by the late Miss Elizabeth Taylor, whom I love not only for her impeccable taste in fashion and jewellery accessories, but she also had my maiden name: Taylor!

Anyway, Liz Taylor was famous for saying, "Your clothes should never compete with the two most important things of all, your eyes and your jewelry"


But the basic rule is again: If the use of jewellery is wrong, you're skirting with disaster in your image!

Wrong Characteristics of jewellery:

  1. Unless it's really avant-garde or trendy youthful, fake pearls, fake gems, costume jewelry shout of "bad taste" from a mile away! And the real socialites of high-society who can make or break your reputation can smell the fake jewelry from a mile away!
  2. Too Much or Too Gaudy, We are delighted with BIG Bling, but there is a fine line between rich opulent brandishing bling and being marked as "new money and without class".
  3. If the jewelry is in the wrong color(s) for you, and if there are conflicts between your jewelry and the color and / or style of the gown or look
  4. If the piece does not fit your personality and makes you feel out of place and awkward. This will inhibit your ability to radiate the confidence to brand yourself as a winner in your social or professional circles.

When designing fashion and jewellery accessories I have each lady complete a personality test and color consultation for the best color(s), concept, and level of extravagance. With jewelry it is often better to lean toward a minimalist mentality, unless you're a diva without inhibitions!


So here at j-na couture we hand-make the pieces, we want to balance your look, dress, and personality. Here are some examples of these principles applied:

So here in j-na couture we design and hand-make our pieces of jewelry accessories with the real thing for our clients!
Regarding the fashionista with a budget limit, it's best to use freshwater pearls semi-precious stones, like this stunning smokey topaz on silver brooch.
For Big Bling and Gleam there can be used precious stones of a lower ranking in clarity, if used in designs appropriately, BUT never should there be imitation gemstones!
