Time to hit the store and buy new earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Here are 8 tips to follow when purchasing summer jewelry.

1. Bright Colors

Summer is such a fun season, filled with the beach, bright sun, and blue water.

With all of these fun colors, your jewelry should also have vibrant hues. Take out your brightest color summer jewelry and match it with your beachwear.

You want the colors to be bright and the styles to be bold. Find large pendant or beaded necklaces. Find eccentric designs on the jewelry.

Choose bright red coral and the orange hues of amber to represent the sun and the sunset. Choose stones with fun colors such as amethyst and turquoise to signify the fun of summer.

2. Gems

Summer is the perfect time to take out those gems. Long walks at the beach at night, romantic dinners, and partying with your girlfriends at the club is perfect for the summer. When you're out and about, your gems will shine all night long.

And don't think your summer jewelry ends with gems. Choose styles with beautiful chains and beaded styles.

For your more formal and romantic nights, choose a breathtaking Roman glass pendant. If you don't like loud gems, choose a small Swarovski crystal. For a night with the girls, choose blue mystic quartz in a cluster style.

3. Sea-Inspired Jewelry

What better time to take out pearls and coral than for summer jewelry?

Pearls never go out of style, but they look the best in the summer. The summer also welcomes fun designs, like turtle pendants and shell or pearl mixed with various gemstones.

Abalone shell is perfect for a casual day on the beach. If you're a minimalist person, choose a small pendant. Or go with an exaggerated pendant such as a turtle, starfish, or a palm tree design.

For a formal evening, choose freshwater pearl or mother of pearl. Find one nestled in an intricately designed pendant. Ocean and summer go hand-in-hand. 

4. Rose Gold

Rose gold has been booming in popularity. Its subtle pink hues are reminiscent of a sunset. This makes arose gold perfect for any outfit and any time of the day.

Rose gold looks amazing as earrings. Choose small hoops or studs made out of rose gold.

If you like fun styles, choose earrings that have a rose gold drop or feature rose gold alongside traditional gold. Since rose gold matches everything, these earrings are perfect for daily wear.

Think rose gold is too boring? Try rose gold embellishments. Sterling silver and rose gold compliment each other perfectly. For a more extravagant embellishment, choose crystal gems with rose gold.

5. Chunky Bracelets

The Millenials love their chunky jewelry. Anything that pops out is favored by Millenials. No matter what your age is, anyone can pull off chunky jewelry. More than anything, chunky bracelets are gaining popularity.

Chunky bracelets are also perfect for any time of the day.

Choose large a pearl beaded bracelet when you're having a dinner date, dinner party, or at an extravagant event. For a day off at the tiki bar, choose large nautilus shells and no one will take their eyes off of you.

Abalone and coral are perfect for any time of the summer day and look amazing on everyone.

6. Choker and Short Necklaces

Chokers are the rage right now. While the younger girls look stunning in them, not everyone is down with that style. Instead, stick with a shorter necklace.

Fortunately, there are a variety of styles of shorter necklaces. They look great on anyone and are perfect at any time of the day.

A ring of pearl beads looks amazing around the neckline. Find a small chain with a large Roman glass pendant that sits on the chest. Chunky beads look amazing when draped around your neck. Find unique beads such as amber.

Don't forget to find necklaces with unique designs. Find a cluster of pendants, unique pendant cuts, and pendants mixed with crystals.

Adjustable chains give you options that will keep your look fresh all summer!

7. Drop Earrings

With the sunshine illuminating your face, you need something to really make your face stand out.

Drop earrings add a touch of color and style to your visage, resulting in enhanced beauty. Have a collection of drop earrings in unique materials and bring them out each summer.

Choose classic materials such as gold for formal wear. Choose these classic materials in unique designs such as drop hoops for casual wear. For fun nights with friends, go bold with large dangle Roman glass pendants.

8. Hoop Earrings

Another summer style classic is hoop earrings. These are always fun and playful.

Hoop earrings are also versatile; you can choose small hoops for formal wear and large hoops when you're partying with friends.

Always have hoop earrings in classic materials such as sterling silver. These materials match with every outfit and are perfect for every occasion.

If you want to go a step further, choose a similar look but more exquisite material such as marcasite.

For extravagant nights, choose amazing hoop earrings such as cluster Swarovski crystals.
