If you've only just begun to collect jewelry, you're probably and understandably trying to be practical about your selections. The most important question to ask yourself is: "Can I wear this forever?" This Christmas cajols in the perfect time to really start the party—here, we list down five chic, versatile pieces you'll ever need. Pair these with anything and everything for the next few centuries to come!
1. The cocktail watch
A must-have for the holiday season and beyond, 215 Swarovski crystals adorn this stunning timepiece's bezel. (Fun fact: This marks the first time the brand features its signature micro-pavé technique on watches!) The great thing about a cocktail watch is that you can don it from the office grind to a glittering night out. Talk about transitional.

2. The pearl strand
Few things stand fashion's test of time like the pearl strand, purveyor of old-world grandeur and ageless elegance. For a cool and current take, style yours oh-so-casually resting on the well-worn crewneck of your fave white T-shirt tucked into '90s-flavored carrot-leg jeans.

3. The heirloom ear studs
Eyes up ear, please! Fuss-free glamour makes its grand entrance via a pair of sparkling stud earrings that don't take a village to pull off. How fab will these look teamed with an entire spectrum of looks, from lazy Sunday's denim jacket to Friday's posh evening fete?

4. The tennis bracelet
We've always been enamored with the concept of a tennis bracelet. Just so you know, it gets its name from Chris Evert, an American professional tennis player whose prolific career began in 1972. During a ferocious U.S. Open match, her George Bedewi inline diamond bracelet flew off her wrist...and that's history made.

5. The statement choker
Everyone needs that one headturnin', jawdroppin' weapon to flaunt on those days when a killer outfit simply isn't enough. Enter the statement necklace, this particular interpretation done up in a mesmerizing combination of velvet cord and regal, icy gemstones.
