Summer Beads

May 27, 2009

I absolutely love beaded jewelry for summer–there’s something about the mix of color and textures that just seems right for warm weather. Maybe it’s because the silhouettes aren’t rigid; the look just feels easy and breezy. If you decide to invest in a piece, Portero has a huge selection of lower-priced jewels as well as splurges that you’ll have in your jewelry box forever. Here are some of my favorite looks that will do well for the upcoming season:


Try a multi-strand necklace like this M+J Savitt Sterling Silver 6-Row Pale Citrine Beaded Necklace. This is a whole lot of look for a very reasonable price tag. The mix of pale yellows will go with nearly anything.


This gorgeous Simon Alcantara Wildflower Vine Gemstone Necklace is a boho beauty. The unusual materials and perfectly imperfect construction make it one-of-a-kind.

Pop of Color:

You can’t go wrong with the simplicity of this 18k White Gold Diamond Smooth Graduated 160 ctw Emerald Bead Necklace. I would personally layer this piece with other necklaces of varying lengths–it would look particularly good with something in a rich gold.
