When the sun comes out and the summer is in full swing, we often find ourselves shedding as many items of clothing as possible, in an attempt to stay cool, calm and comfortable. For many, especially the ladies amongst us, this often also means shedding the bulkier sterling silver jewellery that we have adorned ourselves with throughout the cooler months, as when the weather is hot and humid, there is simply nothing worse than wearing chunky sterling silver jewellery – necklaces, earrings, bangles and more - that sticks to our skin and makes us uncomfortable.
For lots of us, however, having to part with our favourite sterling silver jewellery – our chunky necklaces, our dangly earrings and bulky bangles - in a bid to stay cool, is an uneasy affair, as accessorising is an integral part of our wardrobes; one that enables us to exhibit our personalities and inject a little vitality and glamour into our apparels. The good news is, though, that whilst putting away our chunkier, winter and autumn sterling silver jewellery might be a necessity for coping with the warmer weather, there are a plethora of modish and sophisticated jewellery options out there that are far more suitable for the summer than chunky necklaces, earrings and bangles.
Big and bulky bracelets, adorned with intricate charms and large, chunky bangles could, for instance, be traded in for more simple and delicate sterling silver bangles, like those manufactured by One Bond Street. There’s simply nothing worse, in the summer heat, than having to wear chunky bracelets and bangles that are going to make you even hotter and irritate your wrists, but lots of us often feel even worse when we have to go without our favourite sterling silver jewellery altogether. Our outfits feel plain and incomplete! With delicate and tasteful sterling silver bangles, like those sold by One Bond Street, however, this doesn’t have to be a problem, as they are far lighter, daintier and, thus, so much better for summer!
In addition to this, thick and chunky necklaces that are covered in large and magnificent jewels that would, no doubt, be cumbersome in the heat, could also be swapped for elegant and dainty sterling silver chains. This doesn’t have to mean your summer jewellery is less vibrant or attractive, as to keep your sterling silver chains interesting, they can be adorned with simple yet beautiful pendants, charms and amulets.
Along with delicate chains and tasteful bangles, in the place of sizeable dangly earrings, subtle and charming sterling silver studs could, instead, be worn. Simple sterling silver studs, do not, however, have to be less exciting than dangly earrings, as they can be made especially vibrant with stylish coloured gemstones – maybe emerald or ruby – or even a touch of gold. This is certain to inject a little character and flare into your tasteful summer jewellery!
Swapping chunkier necklaces, earrings and bangles for more delicate and elegant sterling silver jewels is an excellent way to maintain a stylish and well-put-together exterior without having to suffer throughout the summer period. Of course, you’ll also need a place to store your winter jewels, as they hibernate over the summer months, so that you can be certain they are safe and not forgotten about. A wooden lacquered jewellery box is the perfect solution as when the cooler months roll around again, you’ll know exactly where your favourite winter and autumn sterling silver jewels are hiding – safe in your stylish wooden lacquered jewellery box!
