6 Key Updates for Your Summer Jewelry
We're in the height of summer, the perfect moment to showcase sparkly jewelry on bronzed skin.
If you're looking for a midseason pick-me-up, now's an ideal time to embrace some new trends and add a few key pieces to your summer jewelry collection. And, good news: they'll stand the test of time well past Labor Day, so plan to keep them in your rotation throughout the entire year.
These are my current, favorite summer go-to pieces. Click on any image to link to the shop where you can purchase.
THE BANGLE IS BACK
Alone or layered with some of your more delicate pieces, the bold bangle is having a moment, and I for one am glad to invite a few chunkier pieces back on my wrist. I'm wearing this bangle from Mejuri all the time right now - there's really nothing like a gold or silver bracelet reflecting the summer sun on your arm. Ideally, you're on the beach, sipping a cocktail while this is happening.
Threaders are the perfect mix of delicate and statement, and it's hard to imagine anything more beautiful against a bare neck in the summer evening. When it gets hot, pull your hair up, locate your easiest sundress, and add your favorite pair of threaders. Instant elegance.
DIAMONDS + RAINBOWS
Sparkly diamonds and rainbow gemstones glinting in the sunlight feel like complete summer joy to me.
This Miranda Frye Swarovski Crystal necklace really hasn't enjoyed a break from my neck since I received it as a Mother's Day gift a few months ago. It plays perfectly with any other necklaces I layer, and shines beautifully on its own. I ask you, what says summer like *diamonds* and a tan?
A related current obsession: these rainbow pavé stackers. I bought them in sets and gave them individually to my sisters, but they'd be gorgeous in a trio on your hand as well. Or, take the rainbow theme another direction with this beautiful bracelet. Rainbow gems remind me of mermaids and the sea...everything glamorous and summery.
MEET ME AT THE BAR
What started as a major statement with the now classic bar necklace has translated beautifully to bracelets and earrings as well. The LYLAS bar necklace layers with the crystal Miranda Frey necklace above as if they were destined for each other, btw. (This is now my standard uniform.) A final detail: these tiny bar earrings are the perfect modern alternative to your usual studs.
ULTIMATE SUMMER HERO: THE ANKLET
Who can resist the beauty of an anklet daintily adorning a bare leg in the summer light? Imagine it with a whisper-light summer cocktail dress and your highest metallic heels. Slide it on with your bohemian maxi and sandals. It even feels right at home with a tee, ankle-bearing denim, and your fave sneaks. Although, of course we all know where the anklet really belongs: with your bare feet in the sand.
This is such a fun season to shine with some new and sparkly feminine pieces...don't miss the chance to go for it. If you have a signature summer jewelry look, share it with us in the comments so we can get on board, too.
