Summer’s Hottest Jewelry Trends

Summer’s Hottest Jewelry Trends

This post was sponsored by JCK as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

Style is something very personal and specific to each individual.  I wouldn’t be able to fully describe my own style because like most women, it’s multi-faceted. It all depends on how I’m feeling that day, and which part of me would like to come through. On most days I land somewhere around a classic minimalist meets a boho-beach vibe. I find comfort in sustainable fashion and jewelry like the Alex and Ani bracelets I posted about recently, as well the  timeless feel of some quality staples.

When dressing up I’m all about the bold statement pieces crossed with an exotic feel. I enjoy pairing opposites. The light with the dark, feminine with masculine, etc.. I have a real weakness for anything with a history. As a thrifter, I enjoy anything with a vintage feel. The delicate structure and whimsy lines make for a fun pairing with floral prints in the summertime.

JCK Las Vegas is the nation’s largest jewelry show. They just wrapped up the 26th annual edition earlier this month exhibiting 2,400 of the finest jewelry designers and brands. At the JCK convention they showcased the latest trends in fine and fashion jewelry. Here are the top five trends featured at the show. I couldn’t be more excited, they touch on each of my favorite dynamics!

Exotic Journey

Warm yellow gold tones paired with vibrant color gemstones are perfect for summertime. I just love layering them over a simple white top or a pair of linen pants. This Tanyah Farah necklace is perfect for layering over a simple top or dress. Perfect for day or night.


Neck creative 004


I love the bold cutouts lending a bit of modern style to a simple outfit. I usually go all black and let the geometric lines steal the show. I would go bare on one hand except for this one Zina Sterling ring.


Or perhaps this Doryn Wallach cuff on a bare wrist.


Modern Pearls

Pearls can seem outdated, but I love the modern twist thrown into the color on this Fern Freeman piece.

JCKMixed Metals

This is one of my new favorites. Like most people I think we shy away from mixing metals. But I find it liberating and love the juxtaposition between a high shine paired with a hammered matte finish in this BQ Baiyang piece.


Industrial Arts

Here is where the masculine and feminine meet for me. A native New Yorker myself, I really enjoy the dichotomy between pieces that are so delicate, with a strong masculine foundation like this Dilamani necklace.


I’m excited to mix and match all of these trends this summer!
