Summer is the time when most of us want to relax, go on vacation and not think about work. Some people dye their hair a crazy color. Others wear clothes they would normally never wear for work.
What about jewellery? Are you going to wear the same jewellery you wear to work? Hopefully not. Summer jewellery should be as carefree and relaxed as your outfits are. Even if you are looking for high-end jewellery, you can find summer-inspired collections like this one from Emerson & Farrar Fine Jewelry: https://emersonandfarrar.com/collections/waves-collection. Here are some interesting ideas on what jewelry to wear this summer.
Summer is seaside time. You can wear sailor stripes and complement them with some pendants or earrings with a nautical theme. The most common nautical symbol is an anchor, and it can be found in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials. It simply doesn’t feel like summer if you don’t wear one of these.
Marine Life Theme
Much like the nautical theme, marine life is another callback to the ocean and the sea. Both clothes and jewellery with fish and starfish motifs are easy to find in a variety of styles. If you want to really push the marine life theme to the limit, you can wear coral jewellery. It is literally made of marine life.
Some people object to using coral for jewelry, especially due to the great dying of corals all over the world. However, the corals used in jewellery production are different from reef-building corals and can be found in the deep seas.
Reduced and reserved tones of winter are replaced by the flowing and colorful summer clothes. Your jewellery should match your outfits. Fortunately, there are so many colorful precious and semiprecious stones to choose from. Topaz, opal, amethyst, turquoise are all very intensive in colors which is perfect for summer jewellery. Wear them on your bracelets or rings to make them stand out.
If you are really looking for a summer gem, try citrine. This gemstone is a variety of quartz with ferric impurities which give it the recognizable yellow color. It is this yellow color which helped designate it as a summer stone. It reflects the bright sunlight quite spectacularly and earrings or a pendant with this stone are bound to turn eyes.
If you want to remain reserved despite the summer, you can’t go wrong with yellow gold. It works even better during the summer months because your tan can really pop when complemented by a yellow gold bracelet or necklace.
Gold is a material which is very resistant to corrosion. However, it is not impervious to salt water and chlorine. If you plan to do a lot of swimming, perhaps you should consider leaving your precious jewellery at home and substituting it for something more casual and playful.
When summer rolls around, people tend to wear open sole shoes. This is an excellent opportunity to show off your feet with various toe rings. These are typically made out of more affordable materials and their design is great for summer and vacations.
An even better indicator of a relaxed summer style are leg bracelets, or anklets, as they are sometimes called. These unusual pieces tend to draw particular attention at the beach or a summer festival.
In order to feel relaxed on your vacation, you should try to change as much from your normal life. You travel somewhere away from home, you wear different clothes, you do something different with your hair, so getting all new and different summer jewellery is not a far cry from these.
