You may divide your clothes by season, but have you ever thought about distinguishing your jewellery by season? Different seasons bring differing sartorial demands and choices. As such, splitting your winter and summer jewellery could be quite a smart move.
Whether you’re after summer earrings, summer necklaces, or summer bracelets, look no further. We’ve put together the top trends for 2023, to help you choose your next pearl jewellery design.
7 summer jewellery trends
When it comes to pearl jewellery for summer, it’s all about combining the classic and chic with the contemporary and youthful. Pair the whimsy with statement designs - sculptural summer jewellery pieces that mix and match colourful pearls and gems.
Mermaidcore is a hot trend for both summer jewellery and clothing. Don’t feel like diving deep into the craze with shell bags and string dresses? Embrace aquatic tones and coral colours with subtle pearl jewellery choices instead.
Wear an award-winning design around your neck like our white South Sea pearl and tourmaline ‘happy’ necklace. Featured in Vogue, this pearl necklace design combines lustrous South Sea pearls with multi-coloured tourmaline to emulate the vivid colours of Mexican coral reefs.
Due to their saltwater origin, Tahitian pearl jewellery and South Sea pearl jewellery designs evoke the ocean’s depths. Wear both by choosing our Tahitian and South Sea pearl aquamarine necklace – the calming aqueous tones provide a soothing alternative to warmer summer hues.
For modish summer bracelets, choose a pearl cuff bracelet. Distinctive and distinguished, cuff bracelets are making quite the comeback for 2023 summer jewellery trends – but less is definitely more.
Forego any other jewellery and wear eye-catching designs like our black freshwater pearl ‘morse code’ bracelet as a solo piece. Or perhaps pearl bracelets with a vibrant colour scheme is more your thing? If so, choose our copper freshwater pearl ‘it’s a long story’ cuff bracelet.
Pearl jewellery is having a real moment in the spotlight when it comes to summer jewellery trends for 2023; and baroque pearls are coming into their own thanks to their modern feel.
For stylish summer earrings, choose a vintage-inspired design like our white baroque freshwater pearl drop earrings. If you like to pair your pearl earrings with a necklace, wear our white baroque freshwater pearl ‘build your own’ long drop earrings with our white baroque freshwater pearl silver chain necklace.
Thinking of combining baroque pearls with multi-coloured beading? Our black baroque Tahitian pearl ‘happy’ necklace spirals tourmaline with luminous Tahitian pearls for maximum impact.
Mismatched beads and gems
This year, summer beaded necklaces are all about combining crystal and ceramic beads with pearls and other gems. Bring some youthful whimsy to your look with vivid pearl necklaces that pair multi-coloured gems with the visual dynamism of imperfect or raw pearls.
Our white baroque freshwater pearl and multi-coloured tourmaline ‘happy’ necklace blends unique freshwater baroque-shaped pearls with vibrant tourmalines. Wear alone for a singularly standout look.
For beaded summer bracelets, it’s all about embracing the abstract. Our white multi-coloured pearl and semi-precious stone ‘abstract’ bracelet ticks all of the boxes, cascading warm white and creamy pink freshwater pearls with aquamarine and rock crystal. If cooler tones aren’t your colour, go for golden hour pearls and gems instead, with our complementary ‘abstract’ bracelet.
Alternatively, blend different pearl bracelets into appealing arm candy. Wear our white freshwater pearl ‘tutti frutti’ bracelet with our pink seed and freshwater pearl bracelet for a maximalist aesthetic.
Add a statement pearl ring into your summer jewellery box and welcome the guaranteed compliments.
Taking inspiration from Cuban coral reefs, our silver ‘branch’ ring with ten multi-coloured sapphires gently wraps around your finger to mimic curved coral branches.
Alternatively, summon the atmospheric tones and fluid motion of a storm-tossed ocean with our black Tahitian pearl and amethyst white-gold ring.
When it comes to summer necklaces this year, dainty necklaces are out. Instead, choose a leather pearl pendant that combines the delicacy of a simple leather rope with a sculptured central design.
Feminine grace meets strength and fortitude in our award-winning black Tahitian pearl and amber ‘warrior’ long necklace. A unique, fiery amber pendant captures the eye and is constellated with handwoven leather and shimmering Tahitian pearls. Wear alone or with matching earrings to double-down on your armour.
For a more muted pearl pendant that still brings the drama, choose our grey Tahitian pearl and tan leather drop ‘warrior’ necklace. It can be worn either alone or with its matching leather and pearl bracelet for a relaxed yet put together finish.
If you’re looking for pearly summer earrings that are right on trend, then the bigger the better. You want them to be eye-catching and statement-making.
Inspired by the ‘twinkling lights’ of boats out at sea, our black freshwater pearl and aquamarine ‘twinkling light’ earrings are beautiful worn solo or with a matching pearl necklace. If blue isn’t your tone but pearl drop earrings suit your style, choose either a copper and citrine or black and amethyst design instead.
Black pearl earrings make for a dynamic alternative to white or cream pearl studs. Wear our black freshwater and seed pearl drop earrings with complementary black freshwater pearl and leather ‘Parisian’ choker for a distinctive, modern look.
