I remember my grandmother and great-aunts waiting until Memorial Day to break out their ‘summer’ jewelry. This consisted of primarily white enamel bangles, white stone earrings and beads with crystals and pale pastel stones. I could still remember as a little girl holding my mom's hand and playing with her summer bangles.
Times have changed- somewhat! Gone are the days of putting away white clothes after Labor Day-- my Grandmother would gasp if she saw this fashion crime. Yet there are still some gemstones and metals that tend to be even more flattering with summer wear.
Rose gold is a great metal to compliment your summer look. The metal is really less a true pink and more a soft bronze, which is reminiscent of the setting sun. Think of rose gold doing for your complexion what a little bronzer does; it just highlights, warms and dazzles.

A few of the stones that really sparkle in the summer sun are moonstone, rose quartz, citrine, and the cool shades of chalcedony. These stones also look great mixed together for a cool summery look. Try them with your white jeans, cool maxi dress or short-shorts!
