The Edit: Jewellery SS19
There’s no time like the summer to indulge in brightening up your colour palette. Be inspired by the pop art of the 1980s with these enamel clip on earrings that were recently featured in a North East Times editorial about Trendlistr.
If you’re already convinced by colourful jewellery, go the extra mile by opting for dangle or chandelier earrings in candy colours. These beaded bauble earrings were sourced from a private sale from a woman who was selling of her own collection of hand crafted jewellery - she created each piece and often matched her clutch bags to her necklaces and earrings! The 60s also provide a fair share of vibrant pieces - particularly stylised mod pieces like this blue and silver metallic necklace.
Semi precious stones and ethically sourced horn make the ideal accompaniment to summer outfits. The cold feel of a stone means you won’t be overheating in the sun, and their organic textures are best worn with woven light fabrics like cotton and linen.
Mother of Pearl has a subtle iridescence that channels luxurious bohemian chic, while turquoise is bolder and pairs well with chunky silver jewellery. Look out for lesser known stones such as lepidolite and blue john (a rare stone to come across that holds its value!) for something a bit different.
Old School Glamour
The 40s and 50s offer up delicate, feminine pieces that are being revived by a return to the romantic on the catwalks. Pair with a modern outfit and block colours to bring them up-to-date for the season. Delicate earrings look lovely styled with a messy bun -it’s all about mixing high maintenance gems with low-effort dressing and makeup!
Clear rhinestones have enduring appeal for their versatility. Wear with a crisp white shirt and beige chinos for the summer, and dress up with sumptuous velvet to see you through into Autumn and Winter.
Dainty & Delicate
We love a bit of true vintage statement jewellery, but what about those days you don’t feel like going chunky? Mix it up by having some more delicate pieces in your jewellery box. Necklace on thin chains can be layered or worn alone for an understated style statement.
These blue and gold modernist clip on earrings give a little flash of colour without dominating an outfit - then switch to these dangly gold bohemian style earrings for evening occasions.
