There’s nothing quite as exciting as revamping your wardrobe for the summer. With bright, lightweight clothes; airy, open footwear; and trendy, chic jewellery; this is your chance to prepare for the beach days ahead.
Here at Est1897, we specialise in jewellery and watches, so we’ve picked our favourite summer styles to inspire your look this season. There are five main pieces to cover: rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and watches, and we’ve chosen one of each for you.
Rings — Citrine Solitaire Ring
When it comes to summer jewellery, delicate pastels are always a good choice. Think of soft blues, pinks, greens, and yellows as a way to add pops of colour to your summer wardrobe.
This citrine solitaire ring certainly fits the bill. It’s beautiful, oval-cut, pale amber stone is set within a 14ct gold band. Quite a head-turner.
The birthstone for November, citrine has been sought after for thousands of years for ornamental and decorative purposes. Whether it’s your birthstone or not, this is a beautiful ring to add to your summer collection.
If you fancy a different colour without breaking the bank, why not check out our fantastic range of rings under £100? From soft pearls and smoky quartz, to fluorescent topaz and cool aquamarine, we’re sure to have a summer ring you’ll love.
Necklace — Morganite Pendant
For timeless seasonal chic, we’re sure this pale orange-pink pendant will please the eye. Morganite is a variety of beryl — the same mineral emeralds and aquamarine come from — so this stone is as elegant as it is summery. This 9ct gold pendant is quite minimalistic, giving it the versatility to go with the majority of your wardrobe.
Whether it’s white t-shirts and skinny jeans or a beautifully flowing summer dress, this lovely drop-shaped summer necklace is sure to draw the eye. It will look great during beach days, but also in the evening when you want to dress up and experience the summer nightlife.
Earrings — Creole Earrings
When it comes to summer earrings, we like to go bold and oversized — something that can elevate even the simplest of outfits to the next level.
These Creole earrings will look fabulous with almost any look, from the most casual to the most ostentatious. Classic gold jewellery always gives off sophisticated, feminine vibes, and works with all types of summer looks.
That’s why we’ve chosen this beautiful pair of 9ct gold creole spike earrings. It has as much history as it does style. Golden hoops similar to these have been worn for over 4,000 years, with ancient Sumerian women the first known to rock the look.
From here the style continued through Ancient Egypt, Rome, and finally into modern Europe.
Bracelet — Topaz and Cubic Zirconia Set Bracelet
When it comes to summer bracelets, we love the understated elegance of this topaz and cubic zirconia set bracelet.
With its beautiful light blue hue, it makes the ideal accent piece for most summer looks. The vibrancy of this hue will really come out in the summer sun, and the beautiful aqua coloured stones will light up any look, from the beach to the boardwalk.
Topaz comes in a wide range of shades — from warm reds and oranges, to beautiful greens and blues. Naturally occurring blue topaz is rare, which is why we love this stunning summer bracelet.
Add in the sparkle of the cubic zirconia and this elegant piece will look fantastic whatever you’re wearing this season.
Watches — CHANEL J12
Whether you’re chilling out on the beach or snorkelling in the reef, the Chanel J12 will keep you looking stylish.
Its water resistance can easily handle swimming and water sports, and with a sleek and sturdy titanium construction, this piece is the height of summer watch fashion. With a lustrous, easy-to-read face and a beautiful border of diamonds, you’ll be sparkling all summer long.
Since its inception in 1909, Chanel has been at the height of luxury fashion. Known originally for her hats and later her couture, Coco Chanel firmly established herself among the upper-class socialites of the early 20th century.
Surprisingly, the company wasn’t involved in the watch market until 1987. Despite this, their timepieces are of the finest quality, with this particular range making use of white ceramic for its band, while a series of small diamonds beautifully border the sleek face.
Whether you’re heading abroad this summer, or just plan on soaking up the sun at home, take your outfits to the next level with stunning jewellery from Est1897.
