3 Ideas on Summer Holidays and Jewellery

Leave a comment


Your suitcase is packed, passports and tickets are all in place, and you’ve even worked out the current rules around taking liquids on a flight (no mean feat!). But the dilemma is – what jewellery should you take on your summer trip abroad?

We’ve all heard the horror stories about luggage going missing and hotel safes not being quite as safe as they ought to be. Is it any wonder, then, that many of us head off to our summer destinations feeling ever-so-slightly under-dressed?

It goes without saying that you shouldn’t be taking any prized items of jewellery on holiday with you. Heirlooms, items of particular sentimental value, and other expensive pieces really don’t belong in your holiday bag. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t show off a bit of ‘bling’ while you’re relaxing!

Read on to find out how to stand out from the crowd while on holiday, despite not taking your favourite jewellery pieces with you, whether at home or abroad.

Beachwear redefined 
Howlite & Turquoise Wrap BraceletCostume jewellery doesn’t really get on terribly well with sea and sand. But natural materials can put up with a bit of exposure, and some even get better with age. If you really want to sport a bracelet, necklace, or anklet on the beach, your best bet is to find something made of leather thong. It might change dimensions on getting wet, but it won’t rust or leave green marks on your skin…

Vive la difference! Triple Skull BraceletWe all know about ‘trending looks’, but one thing that stands out this summer is the bracelet ‘layering’ trend. This isn’t a look you want to achieve with multiple expensive pieces, for obvious reasons. Instead, why not shop around for quirky finds? Better yet, find a jewellery designer who can design and make a number of key pieces for your wardrobe, making your look totally unique.

‘Bling’ doesn’t always equal costume

There are so many ways you can choose to brighten up your summer holiday outfits. From a simple pair of Swarovski Elements earrings, right through to custom-made bracelets or necklaces – the choice is yours! If you’re looking for a particular colour palette to match a capsule wardrobe, then individual jewellery makers should be your go-to of choice. The good thing is that there are quite a few out there for whom ‘bling’, without the green-skin-making costume element, is the norm.

In short, it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for just one, or an array of summer holiday jewellery items – check out ANeetProduction for a host of ideas. If you see something you like, or something you’d like to have made as a bespoke piece, do get in touch via
