Seashell Jewellery: A Hot Trend This Summer

If you’re looking for a way to make your wardrobe beach ready and on-trend, you could do worse than invest in some seashell jewellery.

The Independent recently noted that this is one of the big jewellery trends to watch this summer, but stressed that the key is opting for luxury pieces, rather than the cheap and cheerful items you might have picked up on your summer holidays many years ago.

A number of top designers, including Dolce & Gabbana and Rosie Assoulin, have embraced this trend so far, with everything from chunky seashell necklaces to delicate gold shell-shaped drop earrings featuring on the runways.

Now could also be a good time to have a look in your jewellery box to see if you’ve got any old seashell pieces lying around that you could spruce up and rock this summer.

To give your old items a new lease of life and make sure they fit in with the luxury seashell vibe, make use of gold plating services to give your pendants, earrings and bracelets a stunning new finish.

Gold jewellery in general is one of the top trends of the moment, with many gold sellers naming Meghan Markle as a key driver of people’s renewed love of the precious metal. The new princess revealed that yellow gold is her favourite after flashing her engagement ring.

Since the start of the year, jewellery designers and sellers have seen rising demand for this shade of the metal, with many attributing this boost to the former actress.
