Summer is finally here! While we are only a couple of days into summer, one of our favorite seasons, we have been dreaming about breaking out our summer wardrobes for months.
This summer is all about accessorizing – bold animal inspired pieces and art deco jewelry will add drama to any outfit, while the new spin on an old trend, wrap bracelets, will make any look effortlessly cool.
Tap into your animal instincts with this fun, bold new trend. We are seeing rings, bracelets and necklaces featuring animal accents made with all different metals and gemstones. Our designers, John Hardy and Roberto Coin, have entire collections dedicated to this trend.
John Hardy’s Naga Collection brings to life the Balinese legend of the dragon, a revered mythological creature symbolizing prosperity and good luck. In these legends, the dragon is known as the lover of the pearl and must dive from his volcano-top home to sea to visit his love. Each morning when he returns, his path brings water through the rice fields. The water produces a bountiful rice harvest, supporting the Balinese farmer. The collection’s pieces are rich with detail and gemstones, reflecting the originals of the inspiration.
Roberto Coin’s Animalier collection features many different whimsical animals including tigers, horses, dragons, scorpions made in white and yellow gold with diamond, sapphire and ruby accents.
Art Deco Inspired
Ever since the new Great Gatsby movie came out, Art Deco inspired fashion has been in full swing. It’s all about mixing in retro inspired pieces into your modern day look. Adding glamorous, dangling diamond earrings, multiple strands of pearls or an Art Deco heirloom ring from our Estate collection, to your outfit will instantly give you a Daisy Buchanan look.
Stacking bracelets and bangles has been a trend with staying power! The newest update to this trend is the Wrap Bracelet. With one simple bracelet, you can achieve the look of having multiple bracelets on without the guess work of mixing and matching. For an even more dramatic look, add in more bangles or an oversize watch from your collection. Our designer Chan Luu has a unique collection of leather wrap bracelets made with all different gemstones.
We love all things summer – especially when it comes to accessorizing. Show off your bold side with animal inspired jewelry, instantly add glamour to any outfit with art deco pieces or keep it casual and cool with wrap bracelets. You can’t go wrong with these summer trends. What’s your favorite?
