byzantine-necklace After sailing past Memorial Day, we find ourselves in the beginning of the summer season. Summer may not officially begin until the 21st of this month, but look around and you’ll find people everywhere in the summer mode. On weekends people are shedding jeans in favor of shorts and dresses, exposing their skin to the sun again and building a tan. If you too have started heading out of the office early and taking long weekends, chances are you’re feeling the summer vibe as well.

With a lighter, more colorful wardrobe and the promise of sun-kissed skin, summer is also the perfect time to switch up your Spring jewelry wardrobe.  If deep jewel toned gemstones are the hallmark of Fall and Winter, and light, airy gems are the color of Spring, Summer is defined by warm, simple pieces of yellow gold jewelry. Yellow gold jewelry looks beautiful against tanned skin and evokes the essence of Summer’s biggest ambassador – the sun.

Lower necklines, a classic characteristic of a summer wardrobe, are the perfect opportunity to don a beautiful yellow gold necklace. There are two different ways to rock a yellow gold necklace for summer: by gold-mesh-necklace wearing a light gold chain with a delicate pendant, or by wearing a more substantial gold statement necklace.  This week we’d like to highlight some of our favorite gold summer statement necklaces, which look stylish paired with everything from a maxi length patio dress to a crisp white button down shirt:

14K Solid Gold Mesh Necklace

This gold mesh necklace is a perennial classic, but looks particularly sexy in the summer. The simple, clean style is perfect for summer vacations since it can be worn with such a variety of outfits.

If you like your gold jewelry with a twist, this tri-color gold necklace is just the ticket.  Solid gold oval links alternate between yellow gold, rose gold and white gold for a stunning piece of summer jewelry that flatters every skin tone.


14K Gold Byzantine Necklace

This yellow gold Byzantine necklace (at top) would make a fabulous addition to a stylish summer wardrobe. The necklace’s design is bold enough that it’s the only piece of jewelry you  need to wear to complete an outfit. Try pairing it with strapless tops and dresses, or let it peek out from under a collared neckline for dramatic effect.
