Summer is finally here! Gone are the days of chunky scarves and bulky coats covering up your accessories, summer is the season to let your jewelry shine! With its warm weather and light and airy fashions, summer is full of opportunities to show off your favorite jewelry pieces. Add a pop of color with a bracelet or a touch of the sea with a nautical-inspired necklace. From bangles for stacking to dainty necklaces for layering, embrace summer with these fun summer jewelry staples.
Reminiscent of the ocean and blue skies, Turquoise is the perfect gemstone for summer. Aside from its striking, tranquil color, Turquoise is said to bring strength, power, luck, and protection to whoever wears it. Despite its happy hue, turquoise jewelry is not polarizing and pairs perfectly with white, tan, navy, black, and more.
Sun, Moon & Star Shapes
Jewelry designs that mimic the sun, moon, and stars bring to mind warm sunny days and clear night skies and are ideal for wearing during summer months. Contemporary jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann offers a wide array of pieces that center around the sun, moon, and stars.
Organic Forms & Beachy Motifs
From natural materials to organic shapes, we love embracing nature in our jewelry choices for the summer season. Marco Bicego, in particular, is inspired by the imperfection of nature, and his jewelry celebrates simple organic shapes and natural materials. When looking at organic materials, the natural beauty and elegance of the pearl can’t be matched. Universally flattering and perfect for all ages, pearl jewelry is appropriate anytime, anywhere, and will see you through all the events on your summer schedule from casual evenings at home to dressier nights on the town.
Of course, nothing says summer vacation quite like the beach, so as a nod to summer, look for necklaces and bracelets that feature symbols of the sea like seashells, crabs, starfish, anchors, and more.
In the summer months, bigger and bolder is always better. Chunky necklaces, substantial hoops, and thick cuffs help set off an outfit. Beat the heat by pulling your hair up and throwing on a unique pair of hoop earrings or a statement necklace.
Bright, cheerful colors are everywhere you look in the summer months, from blooming flowers to green grass to blue skies. You can easily work these happy hues into your wardrobe via colorful gemstones. Peridot is the birthstone for August, and its brilliant bright green color is great to sport all summer long. You may choose to stick to one color or incorporate a rainbow of shades to mix up your look. Bright colors pop exceptionally well against a neutral backdrop like a crisp white blouse or a classic black dress.
