After an extended hiatus, international summer holidays are back, and they’ve left an important question in their wake: how’s your holiday wardrobe looking?

Given we’ve been grounded on UK soil for what feels like the longest time, your summer style essentials probably need a refresh. Fortunately for you, we’re spoiling you for choice with our collection of holiday jewellery this year. Our independent jewellery designers have been busy designing necklaces, rings, and bracelets that are just crying out to be worn against tanned skin and over soft linen shirts.

The boho necklace

Channel your inner bohemian with a relaxed, carefree vibe. Think eyes, coins, and celestial motifs—like suns and moons—usually in gold or brass. Here, the beauty is in the imperfection: rather than a polished finish, we recommend a distinctly handcrafted look.

The Positano necklace by Pikaya is a beautiful short necklace inspired by rugged coastal landscapes.

The Empreiunte necklace, by Claire Hibon, was inspired by her travels in South America.

The lariat chain

Perfect with tops that hint at your decolletage, like a ruffly bikini or a strappy dress with a v-neckline. Lariat necklaces inject interest with a long piece of chain, usually completed with a gemstone or other small decoration at the end.

The CIRCINUS lariat necklace by Lily Flo makes for an understated ensemble against a versatile linen shirt.

In a chunkier style, the ORGANIC chain necklace by NODO is made from recycled sterling silver.

The rough gemstone accessory

Many jewellery designers are embracing natural textures like pearls and semi-precious stones in their work. Some—like Drawn—are turning to more unusual materials, like fossilised coral. These earrings, rings and bracelets are made from coral, jade and agate: the perfect seaside-inspired jewellery for long evenings on the beach.

The Miro cuff earring, by Drawn, is made from fossilised coral.
