The number of jewelry pieces that you should own. While it might be impossible to say exactly how many jewelry pieces you should own, and what the perfect amount is, we do have a general sense for the number of jewelry pieces you should own.

You have a good eye for your favorite items, but it's up to you whether they’re a bit too much or not enough.



What is Considered Excessive Jewelry?

Wearing jewelry is great fun, but there is a limit to the number of pieces that you can wear. In fact, you may be overdressing if you have multiple jewelry items on top of each other. 

The key to wearing less jewelry is to find jewelry that goes with your style and personality. If you are wearing a statement piece in one hand and nothing in the other, you are wearing more jewelry than is appropriate. In fact, it may even be said that you are wearing too much jewelry.

You are wearing too much jewelry if you have earrings on, a necklace, bracelets on each wrist, and multiple rings on more than one finger in each hand. Honestly, you can’t have jewelry everywhere. And when it comes to looking classy, minimalism wins every day.

If you wear lots of jewelry, it looks really good. That being said, you don't have to have a lot of jewelry on to look beautiful.

If you want to be classy and fashionable, you have to stop wearing jewelry. And when it comes to looking classy and fashionable, minimalism is the only way to go.

Keep in mind the numbers and types of jewelry you should wear based on the occasion you’re attending.


How Much Jewelry Does the Woman Own?

A survey shows that the average woman owns jewelry worth over $7000. While some of these women call the large number of jewelry they own collections, for others, owning that much jewelry is hoarding, with other women seeing this as a waste of money. As a result of a large number of jewelry owned, most women have numerous jewelry boxes in their homes, but they can’t always tell what’s in the boxes, even as they keep shopping for more jewelry.

The interesting bit is that most of the time, women with a lot of jewelry find themselves with too many cheap pieces that do not last a long time, yet they cannot get rid of or ever let them go. Most of the time, a woman will have tens of earrings, with specific sets, each for a specific outfit.

You can start building your own jewelry collection by choosing the right jewelry to buy. You can avoid having too much jewelry that you might never wear by choosing the right pieces to buy.

How Many Pieces of Jewelry Should You Wear at Once?

You should avoid wearing too many pieces of jewelry at the same time. The occasion is the most important factor that tells you how many pieces of jewelry to wear.  

When you’re looking for the perfect piece to complete your outfit, there are some things you need to keep in mind. You need to make sure that the jewelry you’re wearing is appropriate for the occasion and the time of day, but you also need to make sure that you’re wearing the right jewelry for the right person.  

The jewelry you choose to accessorize your outfit should be a complement to your look, not the focus of attention.  

Less is more, but you need to know when you can go big. Here are some guidelines for when you can go big.

Office Wearing

For a more conservative office, you can wear earrings that complement your outfit. For a more creative office environment, you can wear large hoops. You can avoid jewelry that is too sparkly or noisy stacked bracelets. And if you are not sure about what to wear to the office, don't wear too many pieces. Balance is key.

Formal Events 

You get to show off your elegance at formal events. Throw in some sparkle and any jewelry that emphasizes your best features. Go all out with stunning diamond or crystal earrings to show off your jawline or cheekbones, or even a statement necklace to draw attention to your face. You’re safe with pearls, diamonds, one statement piece, and other elegant pieces. But don’t overdo it. Remember that you need to wear the right jewelry, and though you get to go all out, you shouldn’t overwhelm your appearance.

How Many Bracelets are Too Many?

For many, there is no upper limit on the number of bracelets that you can wear on your arms. At the same time, some people get so wrapped up in their collection that they forget that the number of bracelets they're wearing does make them less confident and more self-conscious.

You get to wear as many or as few bracelets as you like, and you can mix the materials, sizes, and textures, but at the end of the day, you need to feel confident with what you have on. Your outfit plays a big role too. If you are unsure, start small, and add pieces as you grow more confident with having more bracelets.



When it comes to jewelry, you want to strike a balance between too many and not enough. You want to make sure you can easily get it on and off, while also making sure it looks good, feels good, and is comfortable.
