Summertime is officially in full swing, and here at Van Gundy Jewelers, we take our summer style seriously! Of course, for us this includes fine jewelry trends as well. In the spirit of this glorious season, we have compiled 3 fun jewelry trends we think you’ll love.

1. Stacking and Layering

Stacking and layering rings, necklaces and bracelets has been in vogue for several years. This year layering mania continues, but instead of being relegated to matchy-matchy sets of similar shapes and textures, layering and stacking have expanded to include a variety of different shapes, sizes and materials. We love Anna Beck Designs jewelry for this reason: stacking a super fine choker with several longer necklaces and pendants of varying sizes exudes boho luxury. In this case, more is definitely more. This look can be worn with your favorite t-shirt and jeans, with a flowy cotton top, or with your favorite summer dress.


2. Texture

Up your stacking game by incorporating lots and lots of texture! Hammered, beaded, smooth, monogrammed, mesh or rope textures are all on point. When layering or stacking rings, use a variety of textures and be sure to incorporate your bridal jewelry. Stacking above and below your engagement or wedding ring can incorporate your “everyday” jewelry and your “just for fun” jewelry seamlessly, and can bring a daytime look straight to a beautiful California evening.

3. Bold Watches

Although smart watches are everywhere, analog watches are experiencing their own surge in popularity. We think it’s because they’re beautiful, functional, and fun to style. Luxury watches with bold faces, daring colors, and interesting styles are so fun to pair with a chunky bangle, a delicate chain, or both. We love Philip Stein watches for this type of stacking: they’re so unique, gorgeous, and functional. Wearing a Philip Stein watch, with its feel-good technology, stacked with an Anna Beck cuff and chain, is easy on both the body and on the eyes!
