Jewellery trends for UK Summer 2012
Summer 2012 has taken off with a flying leap and offers a banquet of sizzling new jewellery trends, hot from the red-carpets, Diamond Jubilee extravaganzas and catwalks of the world of glam.
Winter layers are being exchanged for fabulous floral and vivid colours so we’ve put together a few tips to get you summer-ready in “Tru-Britain” style.
COLOUR ME CRAZY: Gemstones are arguably the most fundamental part of trendy and stylish jewellery. Summer brings a splash of colour to set your heart alight, with the ever popular turquoise featuring high atop the summer scales. Quartz jewellery is also absolutely in trend this summer fashion season.
BROOCH THE TOPIC AND MAKE A STATEMENT: A statement piece seems to be timeless and knows no particular season. Tie in some Jubilee elegance with our gorgeous Jubilee Brooch and keep the festivities going for longer. Dress it with summer colour and get The Duchess of Cambridge’s electric look.
YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS: Neckwear might feel like a bit of an over-kill in summer, but when you are flashing some flesh, something striking and pretty captures attention. A simple delicate shape against a bright colour or print can work from daytime to evening, like our classic 1 carat Solitaire Pendant. For a splash of colour, our in Sapphire, Ruby or slightly more muted Pink will dazzle.
PEARL DROPS: A more subtle trend this season is the pearl earring. You may not be the Queen but you can certainly feel like one with a pair of drop pearl earrings, adding a feminine touch and splash of opulenc. A stunning pair is our Tru-Diamonds™ Trilogy Pearl Earring Set – a true touch of class.
Camilla shows us that all it takes is the right occasion and the simplicity of an outfit to pull off an ornate choker piece with finesse.
CHUNKY RINGS: These are often the hardest pieces to change but make the boldest statement all on their own. With exquisite and unique pieces like our Tru-Diamonds™ Jubilee Crown Ring, sentimentality can accompany glitz and glamour beautifully. Available in Platinum or Gold.
