3 Key Classic Jewellery Pieces Every Woman Should Own

The creative mind behind regional jewellery brand MKS says that for UAE women jewellery is “a part of their DNA and their unique story; a way to express themselves”. “They are always up to date with the latest trends and often wear pieces from the most popular jewellery brands, both local and international,” she explains. “They have grown up in a culture that gifts jewellery from birth, and keep collecting as they grow older eventually acquiring family heirlooms.”

“A woman’s collection can range from large, exceptional pieces to dainty everyday jewellery that can be mixed and matched. As a general rule, I would say that they like to mix expensive well-known jewellery brands with smaller unique pieces.” While every woman’s personal taste differs, Sheikha Mariam notes that every woman should own a careful curation of pieces that can be worn for years. Ahead of Emirati Women’s Day, she highlights her timeless must-haves.

A pair of pearl earrings

“You can’t go wrong with a timeless classic! Owning a pair of pearl earrings, whether it’s a simple stud or a more modern pair, pearls are perfect for every day. They are also an instant way to dress up any look, easily taking you from day to night. MKS’s Al Otaiba collection incorporates traditional Emirati Jewellery design but with a modern twist as well as the use of Emirati pearls and mother of pearl.”

A pendant necklace

“A charming pendant with a slim gold chain can effortlessly elevate your look. Choose a pendant necklace that is elegant and minimalistic, and if you own a couple of necklaces, layer them to create your own personal expression. A gold chain pendant necklace is a jewellery box essential!”

A statement piece

“Every woman should have a statement piece in her jewellery box. Something that is eye-catching and representative of who you are, it’s almost a conversation starter. This one you choose for yourself. Be bold, make a statement, and don’t be afraid to stand out!”
