How about some summer jewellery? Something costume, something bold and bright, maybe novelty, maybe a bit of bling? Go on, treat yourself to some new summer jewellery – costume jewellery is the perfect pick me up when you can’t afford or justify a big purchase.
A little bit of summer jewellery – be it a bold ring, a bright bangle set, or a big necklace, is guaranteed to put a summer smile on your face.
Let’s start with Novelty. What’s not to love about this year’s obsession with all things tropical? Flamingo necklace anyone? Cute button stud earrings in all sorts of novelty shapes are a good way to do this one subtly.
