How to be the ultimate beach babe

Along with the warmer weather comes a glass of pimms, a slightly dodgy tan line, and a refreshed and more vibrant sense of style. You’ll be digging out those summer clothes from back in the day, and re-inventing them with summer jewellery. Bringing your legs out of hibernation really does change your outlook on life. Legs out, gems out is our motto of the season.

There are a number of summer jewellery trends that have risen to the forefront of the fashion world. No need to search far and wide for treasure, we have it right here.

Shell jewellery on the runway

The catwalks have been making waves in the fashion scene since last year. Beachy accents, natural forms, and fluid structures have been very much present in SS19 designs. Etro chose to incorporate large shell earrings at Milan Fashion week this Spring, and these were paired with fresh yellow dyed fabrics.

Mario Dice also showcased a waterfall of pearly summer jewellery during Milan Fashion Week. Gioielli Primavera Estate also contributed to shell-mania through their own interpretation of both the shell and mismatched earrings trends.

These designer pieces birthed a new design movement. Jewellers across the world were inspired to create versatile summer jewellery. This is jewellery that would be perfect with swimwear, but also great to wear with modest clothing. A chic cover up is part and parcel of a great holiday style of course! But remember not to cover the highlight of your style… luxury handmade jewellery. Want to see the best summer jewellery top picks?

Often, when we go on holiday, we are closer to nature. You can hear the birds, the waves and the breeze so clearly. There are no car horns or sirens disrupting your peace. Get closer to nature, and carry a little reminder of the true landscape with you. From the sand to the city… never forget the environment that we should protect.

Shell jewellery is a trend, but environmental consciousness is not. Lucky for you, handmade jewellery will stick around for a lifetime. You can carry these pieces close to you for eternity, and always remember the days where you found clarity through the ocean.
