Summer is in full swing, and any good fashionista knows jewelry they purchase now should be able to seamlessly transition into fall to get each piece's money's worth. Luckily, in today's stylish society, there is a bit of creative license when it comes to adding some flair - such as a pop of neon - to unlikely ensembles. Here are a few last-minute pieces to consider adding to your already vast collection.
Long gold-plated pendants
Long necklaces are always in fashion, though this year seems to be the optimal time for gold. Whether you decide to don one long strand with a cute stamped anchor, heart or star, or prefer mixing multiple strands for one style, this look is just as chic with a sundress as it is with a blouse, blazer and dark jean ensemble in fall.
According to Glamour magazine, pendants are a great way for women to show off their personal style in a sassier way than a traditional charm bracelet, for example. You could start your gold pendant collection with a Diamond Accent Initial Disk Pendant In 14k Yellow Gold Over Sterling Silver. Not only does it fit the bill in terms of the trend, but having your initial light up in sparkling crystals also provides the piece with a personal touch.
There is perhaps nothing better to take a look from ordinary to extraordinary than a modern cocktail or statement ring. A cool ring with an unorthodox design such as the Diamond Accent Platinum Over Sterling Silver Open Circle Cocktail Ring can help transform an average T-shirt and jeans combo from a daytime ensemble into a look that's perfect for a night out.
Add a bit of lipstick and pull your hair back into a topknot for a total revamp. Miley Cyrus and Rihanna are two A-listers who take this advice to heart.
Not so average studs
Stud earrings are the go-to choice for many busy ladies. While traditional diamond, pearl or gemstone varieties are great options since they go with everything, adding a bit of spice to your collection is a must this summer and fall.
Gold or rose gold studs are suitable options as the metal will pop against your tan ears. You could show off your personality by picking up a pair like the 10k Rose Gold Love Knot Stud Pierced Earrings that are charming and stylish.
