Summer is in full swing and with beautiful blue sunny skies and warm weather, it's the season of family outings, outdoor patio get-together with new and old friends, and romantic evening dates with your love. Vibrant, bright and fun colors of summer dresses, skirts and accessories, like hats and sandals, call for complementary bold and beautiful jewelry. Just like the endless possibilities of the things to do when the days get longer and the sun shines brighter, jewelry choices are plentiful and exciting.
Below we have featured this season's must have looks which we think will inspire you to desire and acquire!
1. Brighten Up The Backyard BBQ
When it's hot and you're enjoying time with your family, what better way to spice up an outfit than with turquoise and sterling silver jewelry? We all love choosing the flowy sun dress or cute shorts for these fun barbecue or picnic get-togethers. Therefore a turquoise and silver necklace or bracelet to accessorize these outfits. It does the trick without putting too much thought into a casual event.
We have turquoise necklaces, pendants, and bracelets that can be mixed and match for a fun look.
2. Glamping With Gems
Have you heard of Glamping? If you're like us, you've probably heard of the buzzword being thrown around among your adventurous travel friends. According to Glamping.com, Glamping is a fusion of glamour and camping. When you're glamping, there's no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no "journey" to use a bathroom.
Whether it be taking an RV instead of a tent or passing up a fire for a portable solar grill--glamping is camping, with a hint of luxury. We get it and there's no better way to go glamping than with beautiful gemstones and semi-precious gemstone jewelry! Whatever your style, accentuate your taste with our lovely gemstone picks. As seen on this year's runway for Fashion Week, socialites and fashionistas alike will be complimenting their ensembles with energizing gemstones and soothing crystals this summer. Why not you? Some options are Turquoise, Tourmaline, Amethyst, and Opal. But if you check out OGJ's summer collection, there's so much more. See end of post for individual products pictured.
3. Statements by the Seaside
The Carnelian - Carnelian & Gold Bead Necklace
If you're hanging out on the coast and cruising on the highway, or on your sail boat, add one or two pieces of jewelry, something simple and fun for swimsuits or tank tops. While you stroll into gift shops or take long walks along the beach path for coffee or brunch, add a statement necklace or bracelet for a little charm and personality.
The statement necklace is making a comeback with a vengeance. Statement necklaces are a great Summer '17 choice as they can be worn in a variety of ways. For that romantic Al Fresco dinner, don classic Chanel, a perennial favorite that is elegant and timeless. Our pick is the Chanel Faux Pearls available in our vintage Chanel collection.
4. Romantic Date Nights
Whether you are married or single, summer is the perfect setting for those evenings of candle light, wine, and deep conversations underneath the starry night.
We love colorful sapphires, deep green emeralds and blue topaz, or even rustic citrine; its deep orange yellow worn with summer dresses and maxis for these delightful summer evenings.
