Longtime patrons know we’re among the first in the city with our ears to the ground when it comes to the next big thing in fashion at the beginning of each season; sure, Georgetown is a hip place, but we like to think of ourselves as being a little more on the cutting edge than your typical ma-and-pa jewelry store.
This summer is slated to be one of the hottest in recent years, both literally and metaphorically – here are some of our predictions for what’s going to be big in the coming months.
Bangles are a classic adornment to pair with a free-flowing sundress or perhaps a beachy linen romper. Whether solitary or stacked, they’re the perfect way to make some noise, no pun intended. Their Southeastern place of origin make them an intuitive choice for summertime, and we offer plenty to choose from. Tacori’s Golden Bay is one of our all-time faves year-round, and at no time is this more true than at this time of year – between the delicately-wrought rim of the bracelet and the dainty charm hanging from it exquisitely, it’s definitely a purchase we would recommend regardless of season.
And, as fiercely loyal Lagos devotees for life, we are also happen to be huge fans of the bangles in their Caviar collection; the range they offer is diverse, all while somehow maintaining a certain unity between them despite this. This makes them the perfect range of bracelets to mix and match between.
Nothing says summertime like stones the color of the ocean. It’s a fabulous hue year-round, but something tells us that they’re going to be huge this summer; turquoise has the power to transform a sarong and strappy sandals from mere loungewear into an outfit suitable to go out to a casual beachside dinner at your favorite resort.
Again, Tacori is a natural first inclination; their fabulous turquoise ring and delightful pendant necklace to match are sure to breathe new life into your closet, allowing you to stay on trend while still keeping things light and airy.
At the opposite end of the spectrum are pearls – born of the mighty sea, they are highly reminiscent and symbolic of the summer season. Unlike turquoise, however, we find that this season they will be more suited to being worn with your evening regalia. While there’s nothing wrong with a traditional, timeless strand of pearls, we encourage you to step outside of the box and try out something new and exciting this summer.
It goes without saying that Mastolini should always be the first designer you turn to when seeking pearl-adorned anything; not only are their designs to die for, they’re members of the Cultured Pearl Association of America, meaning they’re a manufacturer with a lot of heart. One of our favorite looks right now is a combination of this necklace, earrings, and ring with a slinky LBD.
Last but certainly not least on our list of must-haves for summer 2018 are diamond bracelets, specifically those of the chain variety. While tennis bracelets are an obvious given, right now we’re definitely feeling something a bit more delicate – this diamond bracelet from Simon G’s Modern Enchantment line is really speaking to us this season, as is any letter of the alphabet from Tacori’s Love Letters series. They’re the perfect thing to have dangling from your wrist this season, whether you’re out to brunch or simply stepping out to the store.
