It is not always important to style the whole set. Just pick the pieces that are most attractive according to you and also, complement your attire. Make sure that these pieces are the centre of the attraction of your whole and they simply steal the show, making you the star of the event.

You can borrow your grandmother’s statement pieces and style them one thing at a time. You can ditch the necklace but style the earrings with the bracelet for a more modern look or you can ditch the other pieces and use the choker for a flattering look. Just make sure that the pieces complement your outfit and are in combination with your personal style.

You should not worry about going over the top or being minimal as jewellery is something that no one has figured out and anything can work. You just need to style it in the right way.
