With the gorgeous weather we’ve been having right here in the UK, we’re thinking you don’t need to travel too far to enjoy a relaxing summer holiday and soak up the sun right now. Wherever you’re holidaying this summer, planning your wardrobe and especially all of the gorgeous accessories that you’re going to take with you is so much fun! Why not give your jewellery collection a little pre-holiday refresh with some of these beauties?
Let’s head to the beach!
It’s great to try out different looks when you go away, experimenting with fun, colourful jewellery pieces that you might not usually wear when doing the supermarket shop or the school run, and just having more time to pick and choose your jewellery to suit your holiday looks.
How great are these colourful, chunky bangles from Fornash pictured above? They’re perfect for stacking, and brightening up a plain top or summer dress with bold blocks of colour. We just love them and think they’d look great on the beach!
Pompoms are so popular right now, whether as a trim on your summer kaftans, adding texture to your homeware or hanging like fluffy charms from your jewellery and accessories – they’re everywhere! This Fornash necklace (below centre) is so much fun and will add a touch of festival chic to any outfit.
We’re excited to be introducing One Button Jewellery to you all next Tuesday 18th July, so make sure you catch the show at 2pm and look out for them online in our jewellery department. Their designs are perfect for summer holidays with lots of colourful beads, shells and different materials. Look out for the vibrant beaded necklaces below – the ribbon tie one on the left is a favourite of ours!
Easy breezy style
When you’re heading off on your travels, you may not want to take your precious pieces of fine jewellery or your best watch away with you in case they get lost or damaged. You’ll want easy-to-wear designs that can be mixed and matched with your capsule holiday wardrobe (because we all want to take our entire wardrobes with us, but the airline weight restrictions don’t really allow it!).
Beaded necklaces and bracelets are great for adding texture and colour to your summer holiday looks. This pretty set of stretch bracelets from Bcharmd (below left) are so easy to slip on and match with other beads. We love the fun print and colourful style of this Orla Kiely watch too. It’s a great choice for a summer holiday!
Lola Rose are well-known for their colourful jewellery, made with gorgeous semi-precious gemstone beads that are so smooth and tactile, and feel cool against your skin. We love this Amelie bracelet (below left) and Ashling necklace (below right) – both would look lovely worn with swimwear on the beach, or layered over a simple kaftan or maxi dress, teamed with strappy sandals and an over-sized sun hat.
It’s not all about daytime style of course; it’s great to switch your looks up and go for something a little more elegant as you head out for sunset cocktails and tasty al fresco dinners. Thomas Sabo have recently joined us here at QVC and this striking Dreamcatcher pendant and matching ring are simply gorgeous. The ornate pendant is studded with simulated turquoise stones and the ring features a single stone in the centre, surrounded by sparkling cubic zirconia – perfect for adding a pop of colour to your outfit.
These pretty Murano glass earrings (below left) and cuff bangle (below right) are super stylish, featuring bold colours and glossy finishes that are a signature look of this brand. Both would look so gorgeous worn together with a simple black dress for an evening out.
We love the mixed materials in this set of leather and polished brass stacking bracelets from Sence Copenhagen. The contemporary design is so chic and there are 15 bracelets in the set, so you can stack together as few or as many as you want!
