The perfect jewelry for summer

Summer is an enjoyable season filled with trips to the lake, plenty of sunshine and our favorite summer jewelry trends! While this year has been strange and changed a lot of things, the pandemic has not affected our desire to look our very best. 

Our 14 Karat jewelry specialists want you to embrace the beauty of this year's summer jewelry trends to give your summer wardrobe a new feel. 

Layered necklaces

As temperatures rise and we officially ditch our turtlenecks, necklaces become more and more popular. This year's summer trend is to not only step up your necklace game, but to wear multiple necklaces at once. You can do with this with as few as two necklaces or go the opposite direction and wear 20 necklaces at once. Necklaces with different lengths are usually what gets worn because you can see them all at the same time and they don’t get jumbled. However, there are no rules when it comes to stacking! Do not be afraid to play with different textures, beading and styles when creating your layered necklace look. This summer truly takes on the motto of, “more is more.” 

Gold reigns supreme

Yellow gold jewelry is a must have for this summer season. This applies to all of your accessory looks! Take inspiration from the sun and get your shine on while wearing gold earrings, necklaces, rings; the works. Want to show off all your gold jewelry? Our 14 Karat jewelry experts recommend wearing white clothing to help your gold jewelry really pop this summer. 

Statement chokers

We’ve learned this year that life is too short to be anything but yourself, so do not be afraid to embrace the summer jewelry trend of statement chokers. It is go big or go home with this trend, with thicker and more extravagant chokers being seen on fashion runways. You can combine this trend with the layered necklace trend, and make your statement choker the first layer of your necklace stack. 

Flower Power

Flowers are not just blooming in your garden, they are popping up in your summer jewelry trends too! This trend can especially be seen in earrings, necklaces and brooches.  Flower jewelry screams summertime bliss and you are able to use this trend to incorporate more color into your wardrobe as well. Just like a flower can be any color of the rainbow, your jewelry can mimic that effect and help you to keep embracing the colorful jewelry trend that we saw this spring


Pearls will never go out of style, and this summer is no exception. This summer's trend focuses specifically on pearls in a more natural state–the more unique the better. Designers bring an artistic edge to pearls this season, with many designs incorporating sculptural elements or hand-painted designs. If you are not really a trendy person, but still want to keep your jewelry box updated, our 14 Karat jewelry experts recommend picking out a new pearl piece. It will add something that is both timeless and modern to your collection.
