The Beginner’s Guide to Fine Jewelry

Level up your jewelry game with these stunning pieces from Nanis Italian Jewels



As a fashion-conscious girlie, you probably have a well-curated yet sizable jewelry collection. You already know how the right accessories—be it earrings, a necklace or a bracelet—can elevate your outfit and make a statement. Most of your jewelry pieces are probably colorful beads or gold-plated pieces that are perfect for day-to-day wear. But if you want to take your baubles game to the next level and go for something more refined and womanly, consider investing in fine jewelry.


Yes, the idea is admittedly pretty daunting. Did you suddenly recall your mom or lola buying full matching sets featuring rubies or diamonds from their amigas, and paying the equivalent of a used car for one bracelet? We admit, the prices can get a little daunting. But think of it as an heirloom piece that you can pass down to generations, or even liquidate when you need the cash flow. Not to girl math, but that sounds like a pretty great investment (plus you’ll look amazing too, natch)!


And not for nothing, but fine jewelry nowadays don't scream tita anymore. Today’s precious jewelry doesn’t have to be reserved for formal occasions—they can now be worn casually every day and even show off your unique personality. Nanis Italian Jewels, a heritage Italian fine jewelry brand that just launched in the Philippines, knows this and made it a point to create chic, eclectic pieces made of the highest quality.


Ahead, check out how you can put a modern spin on the following fine jewelry basics.




Want to accentuate your blouse’s pretty neckline? Or in the mood to highlight your décolletage? A necklace is the way to go. The modern-day options are very chic and far from stuffy: like a delicate gold lariat you can wear over both a t-shirt or a cocktail dress, a whimsical pendant featuring multi-colored diamonds and tourmalines, or a statement chain necklace made with solid 18k gold.




If you want to draw your eye upwards and focus attention to your face card, consider a pair of statement gold earrings. Keep it modern and young with pieces that offer a lot of movement—from office-appropriate hoops featuring pave-diamond detailing to slinkier longer dangling chains that bring the sex appeal or cascading drop earrings that are sure to bring a lot of light to your face.




Arm candy? Forget about boys—you’d probably be more satisfied with these bracelet baubles anyway. A delicate minimalist chain is perfect for stacking with weightier options, while a statement chain demands attention in the best way possible. We’re partial to this multi-colored take on the classic tennis bracelet featuring several gorgeous hues!




Never underestimate the power of a well-chosen cocktail ring. It only takes one great statement piece around your finger, and sometimes that’s all you need to complete your look! Keep it classic with a twist care of a classic-cut tourmaline in an eye-popping hue. If you wanna turn heads, consider a sculptural cuff-style ring or a serpentine gold confection that coils around your finger.


Convertible jewelry


Want to double up on your fine jewelry investment? Why not pick a piece that you can wear in multiple ways? For instance, you can wear this gold-boule necklace as a long single-strand, a double-strand, a triple-string choker or even as a lariat! For more casual days, we like this 18k gold pendant with leather rope that you can wear both as a bracelet and as a Western-style choker. The possibilities are endless!


Whatever your pick, the message is clear: with Nanis Italian Jewels, fine jewelry can be fun, easy and fabulous!


Nanis Italian Jewels is located at The Silver Vault, 2F Rustan’s Makati.
