22nd June 2017

Summer is finally here and in true Brit style, we have gone straight from lamenting the rain to cursing the heat. Whatever the weather this summer, here are our top jewellery trends to help you accessorise this season.

1. Ocean Blues

Every summer, you’ll see fashion editors up and down the country recommending vibrant statement jewellery with bold, ocean blue coloured gemstones. I’m sure you can see why – these vivid colours never go out of fashion for the summer season!

Batalha Topaz cocktail ring

This ocean blue Batalha Topaz cocktail ring in 9K gold is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe with its bold, statement look.

2. Geometric Studs

The catwalks this year have been showcasing some extraordinary contemporary jewellery looks. One of the most striking is the amazing range of eye-catching and huge geometric earrings. For most of us, these huge designs are hilariously impractical, so we recommend dainty geometric studs to bring a touch of the catwalk to your day-to-day wardrobe.

Mutala Morganite earrings

These Mutala Morganite Sterling Silver earrings are perfect for summer office wear, with their exotic ‘Millennial Pink’ summer sunset hue (if you don’t know what Millennial Pink is, there’s a brilliant explanation here).

3. Emeralds

Summer can mean dried out lawns looking a bit brown – but we say no! Lush greens are perfect for hot summer days, standing out brightly against the drought-ravaged landscape. Eternally popular, Emeralds are really gaining ground as the must-have fashion accessory, with gemstone ambassadors of the likes of Mila Kunis gracing the red carpet in some epic Emeralds.

Zambian Emerald ring

This Zambian Emerald and White Zircon 9K gold halo ring makes the ideal addition to your summer wardrobe, with vintage good looks, it’s a little bit retro yet bang on trend.

4. Bar Necklaces

Necklaces are back and they’re back with a vengeance. Multi-length necklace stacks have been hitting the catwalks. From the tiniest of chokers to the longest of sautoirs, Edwardian-style layering is definitely back. With lower necklines in the summer, take advantage of the extra décolletage with some extra necklaces.

Gemporia recommends…

White Topaz necklace

This White Topaz Vermeil bar necklace has an adjustable length, making it perfect for stacking. The bold styling takes its cue from Edwardian chic, but the gold plated sterling silver gives it a modern twist – perfect!

5. Pearls

Vintage styling trends have been a favourite with couture brands throughout spring and summer, with Pearls featuring predominantly. White Pearls stand out against almost every skin tone and look dazzling in the sun, making them perfect on sunny days.

Gemporia recommends…

Freshwater Pearl and White Topaz bracelet

This Freshwater Pearl and White Topaz sterling silver bracelet gives a light, airy look and would be fab paired with white summer linens or even beachwear.
