Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - name a more iconic duo. For generation Z, Mary-Kate and Ashley were a huge part of our formative years. New York minute, Two of a Kind, Passport to Paris, they gave us television gold as we grew up alongside them. Today, the pair are no longer renowned for their child acting - or rather in the form of 90s nostalgia. Having launched multiple clothing lines and marking their presence among fashion’s elites, the Olsen twins have evolved into style icons. The duo seem to radiate authentic style. We’ve all seen those photos of Mary-Kate smoking outside her office, coffee in hand, looking as if she threw on her clothing. But she always looks so inexplicably chic. You can’t buy authentic style, but once you fill your wardrobe with the right pieces, you’re halfway there.
The women’s flair for fashion is visible through their fashion brand, The Row. Founded in 2006, The Row’s aesthetic favours simple elegance and high-end tailoring. Simplicity when it comes to fashion and accessorisation lends itself to the creation of effortless ensembles. Look at this season’s top trends - minimalist chic. Petite pieces. All you need are a few key jewellery pieces to elevate your look to Olsen-level finesse. Their jewellery journey over the years has witnessed many trends, from statement earrings, oversized rings and layered bangles. However, the common thread is that the Olsens have mastered their individual styles. They know how to style their outfits with statement jewellery.
Inspired by Mary-Kate and Ashley’s best looks, discover the top jewellery picks so you can harness their signature style.
Wear your hair up and let your earrings take the limelight
Mary-Kate and Ashley’s Met Gala looks are a go-to in the style archives. Whenever I have a formal event or party, statement earrings are the pieces that will never let me down. From chandelier earrings to ear jackets, or even studs - you’re guaranteed to find the perfect earrings that enhance your signature style. Above, Mary-Kate ties back her icy blonde hair and lets her earrings take the centre stage. The warm gold tones of her earrings intensifies her sunkissed look, creating head-to-toe fashion finesse. To get the look, I have chosen two pairs of statement earrings that would look great with an updo. The first are a vintage-inspired earring featuring a marble surface in a gold setting. Between the shapes a white diamond rests snugly for a dash of luxury. London-based designer Marcello Riccio knows how to create jewellery that breathes life into traditional aesthetics. My next pick comes from Italian-based designer, Franco Pianegonda. The Sweet Ripples Earrings are handcrafted using sterling silver and 18kt gold. The fluid gold forms delicately wrap themselves around a circle of diamonds for a chic and luxury look that even the Olsens would envy.
Go simple and contemporary
Rings that pack a punch
A statement ring can take your look from zero to hero. Look at how the Olsen twins elevate their red carpet looks with bold boulder-like rings. The JewelStreet girls love a statement ring, and so what could be better than finding you the best rings inspired by two incredible fashion icons? I have chosen L. SHOFF’s Silver Signet Ring as your first pick. The red textured surface is in fact a dinosaur bone inlay - so you can imagine one of the Olsen twins digging this ring for sure. Set in reclaimed sterling silver, this contemporary ring harnesses all the best features of Olsen style. The designer champions sustainable practices, therefore investing in this ring is also an investment in planet earth! Susan Wheeler Design’s diamond ring is a very different style yet equally elegant. Inspired by the Northern Michigan woods, this ring draws inspiration from natural forms and organic shapes. The green oval quartz in the centre of the design is a very rare gemstone, so you can feel chic and unique with this one-of-a-kind ring.
