Hearts and Jewelry – Tacky or Tasteful?

Heart shaped jewelry has been around a long time. But does it read as a tad tacky or too “teenage” for grown-up tastes? This piece in My Jewelry blog addresses the ways in which heart jewelry can be worn tastefully and when to tone it down a bit:

Heart shaped jewelry remains classic. However, as we see all too often on the red carpet, too much of anything can be tacky. As with any variety of jewelry, it is important to practice moderation. Unless it is Valentine’s Day, avoid drenching yourself in heart-themed jewelry pieces and wear only one or two at a time. For a very understated look that can go all the way to the boardroom, try stud earrings in which the metal is in the form of a heart or that feature small gems in a diamond cut. If your workplace isn’t very formal, you may find that you can get more playful – consider a heart-shaped bangle or a bracelet that has a heavy heart theme. You may even be able to pull off a single piece of statement jewelry, such as a chunky ring featuring a gem in a heart cut or a sparkling, heart themed brooch. Also remember that heart shaped pendants and lockets never go out of style.
