Summer Jewels – Weekly Wishlist

Summertime, and the living is easy… What does summertime mean? Summer sun, summer wardrobe, summer jewels? Yeah, we think summer jewels should be in there. We love wearing more jewellery than normal in the summer. Who doesn’t cover their wrist in friendship bracelets every summer? And i if you don’t you should.

So, it’s time to get your hands on some summer jewels – and we’re not talking about expensive jewels, no. We’re talking costume jewellery, pieces you can pop on for a few months, and then retire come the first winds of autumn.

Summertime means festivals, and festivals are a great place for wearing all the types of summer jewels you’d probably never wear anywhere else. Head chain, anyone? New Look has a brilliant range of amazing head decorations, just perfect for that  1970s festival hippy vibe. We love this delicate pearl and stone daisy version (£3.99), and at that price you can have a new one for every day of the festival! New Look also has festival-ready arm cuffs, like this gold coloured one (£3.99) and a quite brilliant beaded tassel necklace (£19.99) that is the biggest statement piece we’ve seen so far this summer! H&M’s rope and stone statement necklace (£24.99) is also fabulous.

Weekly Wishlist summer jewelsBangles and bracelets are the ultimate summer jewels. Load ’em up and jingle jangle all through summer. White Stuff’s silver beaded bracelet (£12.50) is so pretty, but if you want a brighter, bolder statement, then H&M’s beaded set of three bracelets (£7.99) is for you. New Look’s fantastic tribal bracelets (£12.99) – complete with fake tooth – are a true statement for your wrist.

At JOY,  My Bear Hand’s gorgeous wood and resin ice lolly necklace (£35) is summer jewels perfection!  Floozie by FrostFrench’s fantastic multi-coloured chain link necklace (£25, Debenhams) is bright and perfect for summer.

BHS’s pretty coral floral ring (£4) is a subtle nod to summer, agreed? But if it’s bigger, brighter and bolder you want, then Butterfly by Matthew Williamson @ Debenhams

Please note that we always endeavour to feature items that are available in Ocean Terminal, however sometimes items featured may be out of stock, and prices may vary due to seasonal reduction (£10) have the perfect one, full of pretty, colourful stones.



Summer Jewellery

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.
