For the past few years, I’ve been reading all about capsule wardrobes—pared down closets that only have the clothes you need, making for simpler daily choices. These pieces are trendless and pair well with all your other pieces. By creating my own capsule wardrobe, I was able to reduce my clothes to the items I actually wear—freeing up closet space and saving me time.
As it turns out, this capsule approach isn’t just good to follow for your clothes. It’s also helpful for getting your jewelry collection to a manageable size. Like choosing the pieces for your capsule wardrobe, you’ll want to choose jewelry that’s timeless, well made, and matches easily with the other items in your closet. We’ve rounded up all our favorite classic pieces to help you build your capsule jewelry collection and make it easier to get ready in the morning.

A pendant necklace
Make sure you have a stylish pendant necklace on hand. We like this one from S/H KOH because it will go with a lot of outfits and styles but still has a personality of its own.
A cute, low-key ring
What makes this ring so special is that it’s both simple and a statement piece. A combination that’s pretty hard to master. The overall design is fairly understated, but the diamonds add an extra pop that people will notice. Plus, its timeless style will pair well with most any outfit.
A stylish watch
With a marble face and neutral-toned bands, Maven Watches’ Stainless Steel & Marble Face Watch “Outline Silver” will add a contemporary touch to your capsule collection. Even with that modern flair, this watch is still trendless, and you can choose between an off-white or black strap for a color that matches your wardrobe best.
A timeless bracelet
Everyone needs a set of bangles in their closet. With this set of three, you can wear them individually or stacked together—whatever fits best with your personal style.
