Unforgettable Women and Jewelry
My mother used to tell me ”If you look like an ordinary woman, you’ll be treated like an ordinary woman.”
And, nobody wants to be an “ordinary woman”
We want people to like us.
We want to be remembered.
To be seen as “special”.
To be unforgettable.
But, how do you make that happen?
How can you become unforgettable?
How can you maximize your image to be a woman who people will remember?
A woman who commands attention?
And, what part can jewelry play in your becoming an unforgettable woman?
There’s a wonderful book called BLINK by Malcolm Gladwell
It’s about what’s behind our instinctive reactions to people and situations.
How we create strong impressions of people even before they say a word.
You walk into a room… BLINK!
You haven’t said a word but they’ve made a decision about you. BLINK!
You know… You do it all the time. BLINK!
How do you think people perceive you?
Are you seen as a strong, intelligent person who people will listen to?
Do you have the BLINK! image of a leader?
What would it take for you to be someone who has a memorable style that creates a powerful impression?
A style that can camouflage your flaws and draw attention to your best features?
A style that will convey your intelligence, strength and good taste?
What steps have you taken to make sure people will remember you?
Wouldn't it be beneficial for your career to be the first one that comes to mind for important projects and promotions?
OK! I confess. I started designing jewelry to help build my own image… to help me be “unforgettable.” I realized the power that jewelry has in creating an aura of authority.
Just look at the military and royalty.
I watched “powerful women” and realized that they instinctively understood the power of jewelry. and what I call "the mystique of the choker.”The ability of a bold, short necklace to keep everyone's eyes focused on their face... the center of their personality.
So, what can you do to develop a style that will be unforgettable?
There are three items that you could readily manipulate to create a unique visual style. The clothing you wear… your hairstyle… and your accessories.
For business, I usually lean towards wearing something tailored like a bias cut, dark suit, or matching pants and turtleneck, which almost become a canvas on which to build a memorable image.
I wear my hair in a “dancers top-knot,” a holdover from my days at the Royal Ballet in London, and that’s become pretty distinctive… almost a signature. But creating a hairstyle that conveys an image of leadership and power is a very difficult thing to do and requires a considerable amount of time, money and research.
But, it’s the jewelry that I add to the canvas that grabs attention. I almost always wear some kind of bold choker necklace to bring attention to my face. I also wear an interesting bracelet or cuff on my right wrist to accent my hand movements.
Your Style can begin with something as powerful as a great necklace, or as easy as a brightly colored scarf. Just make sure it feels like you, and fits your personality,
industry and lifestyle.
An ad agency Account Exec… a Commercial Real Estate Salesperson… an Attorney… a Management Consultant… a Banker, all are different business, but all could wear the same type of tailored suits or dresses with the addition of a special, signature accessory... something that sets them apart from the rest of the crowd. You could build a collection of bold necklaces or interesting pins, or beautiful scarves. As long as they’re noticeable from 5 feet away. (And won’t frighten the horses.) Obviously, a supervisor on a warehouse floor, or the owner of a trucking company would dress differently, but they could still adapt the concept of a special signature, power accessory.
Before we look at some of my “power jewelry” I’d like to offer you a free copy of “They know who you are before you say a word.” A white paper on how you can use the power of jewelry to build a more powerful image. It also contains a special offer you won’t want to miss.

Necklaces, Earrings and Ankle Bracelets are mostly bold, beautiful and memorable. They definitely make a statement. They're for women who want to be remembered. Who want to be perceived as “in charge.”
Denise Solay's Eyewear Jewelry
These are for women (and men) who are tired of losing expensive glasses,but don’t want to wear something that shouts, “I’m a klutz and have to wear this so I won’t lose my glasses.” They are real jewelry that can be worn without sunglasses or readers, but add an important accent with them.They’re great for travel and business trips... In the office, or on the beach.
