Summer 2017 jewelry essentials


  1. Rose Gold

Rose gold originated in the 19th-century in Imperial Russia. After a dip in popularity in recent years, rose gold jewelry has returned to the spotlight. Rose gold is made from a combination of gold, copper, and sometimes silver. The warm hue can be found on everything from rings and bracelets to earrings and necklaces. For a playful contrast of colors, why not mix and match rose gold with white gold and yellow gold.


  1. Ear Climbers

From bold to minimalist, ear climbers come in an array of sizes, shapes, and designs. Add an edgy, romantic, or chic aspect to your outfit with an on-trend ear climber.


  1. Anklets

To spice up your summer sandals, opt for an anklet. Whether you choose a fabric or metal design, an anklet will add a subtle pop to a bare leg. Anklets are a fun way to add some personality and flair to your summer outfit.


  1. Hoop Earrings

“The bigger, the better” is true when it comes to this summer jewelry essential: hoop earrings. For an easy, stylish look, don a pair of hoops. Whether white gold, rose gold or yellow gold, hoop earrings are a delicate yet bold statement piece.


  1. Toe Rings

Add some glamour to a bare foot or sandal with a toe ring. For centuries, women in India have worn toe rings as a ritualistic adornment. After being brought to the US in the 1970s, toe rings have increased in popularity in recent seasons.


  1. Upper Arm Bracelets

The final jewelry essential to add to your closet this summer is an upper arm bracelet. Believed to have originated in Ancient Egypt, historically these armbands have been worn by both men and women, and have been discovered in Ancient cultures across the world.
