9 Must Have Jewelry Items for Summer

Beauty & Style

This year was all about pearls, beads and colour, and this summer isn't far behind. We have arranged a list of all the on-brand and trending jewelery you have to buy, so you don't miss out.

1. Chunky rings:

Before this year, it was all about gold, silver and thin rings. However, this year we just care about colour, attitude and the weirdest type of rings you may find. These are known as "chunky rings". I mean, if you don't believe me, just look at Kylie Jenner and Emma Chamberlain, even they are wearing them! That's how you know you need to buy these. If you buy these ones, you get three resin rings, green, orange and purple, not just one, so you can pair them with different outfit choices.

2. Vibrant Rings:

The only difference from the first ones is the fact that the colours in these ones are more vibrant and have different types and shapes. Also resin rings, but you get different colours, such as purple, orange, blue and green. These types of fun and unique rings are all over Pinterest and Instagram, every influencer and "it-girl" is wearing them; so go ahead, don't waste any more time, and add these to your cart.

3. Colourful Earrings:

Just like rings, earrings used to be very boring (don't get me wrong, beautiful and I still wear them), not full of colour. But, this year, as we said in the beginning, society is collectively branching out and trying more colours and expressions. So, these earrings are just perfect! Hoops with an open "back", with beads that are arranged in the form of flowers, with colours like yellow, pink, orange and red, which creates a beautiful and unforgettable look.

4. Phone strap

Now, this item is probably the most important one and you need to buy it now. You definitely see everyone on TikTok, Pinterest, or Instagram using it: the phone strap. An invention started by Rachel Steed-Middleton during the pandemic, which everyone has now followed, including Dua Lipa, Gigi Hadid and even Miley Cyrus and SO MANY MORE. Just like evryjewels said, they are "perfect to hold your phone and super stylish".

You can buy this one in all sorts of colours; baby pink, purple, blue, vibrant pink and the mixed one (in my opinion, the cutest).

5. Beading kit

The last two items are made with beads and probably very easy to do on your own, so why don't you buy this amazing kit from Pull & Bear and try to DIY it?! All around Tiktok and Youtube there are people who are filming themselves making rings, necklaces and phone straps, so give it a try for yourself. With this kit, you can try to make bracelets and necklaces. It has all sorts of beads, with letters, fruits, hearts, the moon, and some that are just colourful.

6. Pearl Necklace

If you haven't already gotten yourself a pearl necklace, what are you doing with your life? This type of jewelry works better for more casual-chic days/outfits and a simple look. In our opinion, everyone should have it, since it looks amazing with gold or silver jewelry. This one by Brandy Melville is a great choice. As simple as it gets, a faux pearl chain choker with a magnetic closure, and it's 36 cm (14'').

7. Belly chain

Now this one is huge, belly chains are coming back! Fashion from the 2000's is coming in hot. All the way from crop tops, low-rise jeans and even jewelry, like belly chains. Beyoncé, Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner are all wearing it, which is just another sign that you need to get one for yourself. It's perfect for wearing with crop tops and shorts, your favourite bathing suit when going to the beach or even just a normal fit. This one from Evryjewls is so GORGEOUS, a simple gold chain, featuring gold beads to make it more interesting.

8. chain necklace

Although a lot of things we just showed are very colorful, chain necklaces are still very on-trend, and they work very well with simple and formal looks. This one is a set of three separate necklaces that you can choose if you want to wear only one, two or three together. If you opt for a gold one, I recommend this one from Zara, which you can pair with colorful looks. If you choose a silver one, it would look much better with a black outfit. With both colors, you can choose to add a longer charm necklace, much seen this year, or with other items, such as colorful and beaded necklaces or pearl necklaces.

9. Ankle bracelets

Last, but not least, to top it all, you must buy an ankle bracelet. They come back every summer because they always look so stylish and amazing when you are tan and with a bikini at the beach, it totally completes the look. These are just a few different yet simple options that are great for this year. You never want to put a lot of them on at once, as it will become too much, very confusing, and it won't look too good.

All of them are silver, but with different patterns. The first one has little moons, stars and hearts, the second is a plain silver chain one and the third one, a little more complex with two chains, with a little blue turtle. Personally, I would probably buy the first two and wear them together or just buy all of them because they are all so cute and simple.

Like we said in the beginning, this summer is all about colors, beads and having fun with accessories. Although we never forget the simpler pieces of jewelry and we are still buying them, we need to start this summer fresh and with new vibrant ones. These types of items in the article are the ones that are blowing up the internet this summer, that every influencer has and everyone wants to buy. So, if you don't want to miss out, this is your chance.
