5 essentials for simple easy summer style, freshie and zero blog

When it comes to wearing jewelry in the summer, I always say "Less is more". While you may want to wear that super cute chunky bib necklace that goes perfectly with that one top, the reality is that it's hot, and you will sweat, and probably regret wearing heavy jewelry that will only weigh you down more.

Lucky for you, I have chosen 5 essentials to keep your summer style lightweight but still fashionable.

These earrings go with everything! They are so lightweight that you won't even know you're wearing them! Hoops are always a classic, and the minimal nature of these makes them perfect for all your summer outfits. They come in 3 sizes - small, medium, and large (pictured above). 

Essential #2 - Apex Earrings

What's better than a sexy pair of earrings to spice up your summer look? These earrings are just that. Minimal, yet bold, and versatile enough to be worn with a casual daytime look or dressed up for a sexy evening look. Whether you choose gold filled, sterling silver, or rose gold filled, you'll be getting compliments all day long in these.
Essential #3 - Tassel Earrings

Tassels are super trendy right now, so I thought I'd create a pair of earrings that are cute and colorful for the summertime. While these earrings are playful and bold, they are still very lightweight. They come in a variety of colors so you can pick the perfect pair to match your style. My personal favorite is the bright green!
Essential #4 - Gold Many Moons Necklace

This is one of our most popular necklaces. I designed this necklace in the first couple years of being in business, and it has been a favorite ever since. It also comes in a larger size too!
This is the only necklace on our list because, like I said, it's summer - meaning heat, humidity, and sweat. These three factors will cause jewelry to tarnish more quickly. Gold filled won't tarnish like silver, but it can still turn a little dark with excess humidity (and sweat!). However, if your jewelry does happen to get a little sweaty, the last essential on the list will help keep your jewelry fresh and clean!
Essential #5 - Jewelry Polishing Cloth

I love this polishing cloth! We use it all the time in our studio to clean jewelry that has tarnished, and it works wonders! The inner cloth cleans the tarnish and the outer cloth polishes for a shiny finish.
Cleaning jewelry is imperative at all times of the year, but especially in the summer. While sweat is a main cause of tarnish, several other factors can cause jewelry to turn as well including hairspray, lotion, and perfume. I recommend keeping jewelry away from these types of product, and never store your jewelry in the bathroom where humidity increases every time you shower. So keep your jewelry fresh by keeping it clean and treating it with care!
