The warmer weather calls for jewellery with easy elegance; pieces that will complement your summer wardrobe and your other accessories such as sandals and scarves. Our guide to this year’s jewellery trends will point you in the right direction. Think delicate designs with translucent gemstones that will catch the light, and cuffs and rings that will provide instant summer glamour.

Rose gold

Bracelets like this one from Cachet London, are perfect for the summer months, combining rose gold with Swarovski crystals that will flatter any outfit. For something a little more elaborate this mother of pearl bracelet is ideal. Featuring glass crystals, rose gold toned metal and a combination of open and filled hoops, it’s glamorous whilst also having that sense of movement that’s intrinsic to summer jewellery.

Simple delights come in the shape of this, elegant cuff, which is perfect for pairing with friendship bracelets in contrasting colours and finishes.

One of the great attractions of rose gold is that it looks attractive just on its own.

Gemstones

Crystals and stones, semi-precious or faux are a must this summer and add to the fun and colour of this season’s trend, especially when matched to metallic finishes.

The Ted Baker Jackie Jewel clustered ring ticks all the boxes and will add instant glitz to sundown drinks. For some real sparkle why not try Michael Kors’ two tone ring, with a winning combination of rose and yellow gold complemented with alluring crystals. Finally, this cute tear drop ring surely says that summer has arrived.

If you prefer the elegance of small earrings, then look for clusters of brightly coloured stones like the Ted Baker Lynda
Swarovski crystal cluster
and Melissa Odabash drop earrings.

Statement necklaces

Make a statement with your necklaces this summer. Long or short they are perfect for adding extra interest to a special outfit and some sophistication to a casual one.

This Kit Heath necklace is great as it has a simple summery floral design. In contrast, you might want to choose something more ornate. This short necklace will accompany any outfit and the hammered metal finish will shimmer wonderfully in the sunshine.

Pearls

With their natural beauty, the pearl is a great choice for summer jewellery. From these triple pearl drop earrings, to these triangle earrings, it’s easy to see why they have such a universal and timeless appeal.

Great set into gold or silver, this season look out for contemporary designs like this John Lewis twist faux pearl necklace and coloured pearls like this Claudia Bradby pearl bracelet.
