SUMMERTIME SIMPLICITY: HOW TO WEAR PEARLS ALL SUMMER LONG

June 22, 2015 by Melissa

As the weather warms, do you find yourself wondering whether your jewelry should change with the seasons? Well, the answer is yes and no. While summer provides an opportunity for you to try out some new styles, it doesn’t mean that you can’t keep wearing your classic pieces. Look to the following tips to help you and your pearls look great this summer.

  1. LEAD WITH LAYERS

Pearls, perhaps more than any other gemstone, look fabulous when layered. Try layering pearls of different sizes, shapes, and necklaces of varying lengths. Multiple strands of pearls have a wonderful aesthetic against bare skin, making them perfect for summer’s strapless dresses and plunging necklines.

  1. FIND A SUMMERTIME STATEMENT

This summer, incorporate a statement piece of pearl jewelry into your wardrobe. Look for pearls of unique sizes, or standout pieces that really catch the eye. A good place to look for these pieces are in pearl rings. Many modern rings have a unique style, or look to vintage to stand out in a crowd.

  1. VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF SUMMER

For a lighter, seasonal style, look for pearls paired with unexpected materials. Think large gold chains or maybe dainty ribbons. And remember that pearls look great even when they’re not center stage: look for pieces which focus on another gemstone or material but which have decorative pearl accompaniments.

  1. CLASSICS WORK YEAR-ROUND

But while you’re looking for your new summer favorites, don’t forget about the pieces that made you love pearls in the first place. Classic pearl stud earrings, for example, never go out of style. And don’t forget a simple pearl strand, a la Grace Kelly, for timeless elegance.

Regardless of the season, you always look your best in pearls.
