Buyers' Picks: Try on These Hot Summer Trends

Summer is here, and there's no better time to scoop up some of the coolest trends and add new styles of jewelry. There's a fantastic array of jewelry to choose from, so we asked our buyers to highlight some of the pieces that they're most excited about right now.

1. Chic Necklaces: Baguette Embellishments, Bezel-Set Stones, Engravable Bars, and More

Diamond Teardrop Pendant

Why We Love It:

"This teardrop silhouette in 14K white gold with diamond pavé and a baguette embellishment is a stunning piece. It's elegant, timeless and classic—with a perfect little twist. The fancy shape is very of the moment, but it will never go out of style."

Engravable Bar Necklace

Why We Love It:

"This is our most classic bar necklace and it's beautiful all of its own or as part of a layered look. Bar necklaces work especially well as visual anchors to a shorter piece. Plus, it's a mini blank canvas that you can personalize with up to 12 characters—your name, a favorite word, a special date. It's up to you."

Bezel-Set Pear-Shaped Diamond Necklace

Why We Love It:

"This Pear-shaped pendant is very dainty—which is a huge part of its appeal. Petite designs and fancy-shape stones are trending right now. The east-west orientation of the diamond is a fresh design twist, and the bezel really highlights the stone's shape."

Stationed Marquise Layered Necklace

Why We Love It:

"Station-bead necklaces are always on our list of jewelry essentials. What's noteworthy here is the sleek marquise shape of the beads as an alternative to more traditional round stations. It's a subtle shift with a gorgeous, very modern effect."

2. Versatile Earrings: Linear Lines and Great Everyday Styles

Diamond Stud and Pavé Disc Ear Jacket

Why We Love It:

"We're really excited about all the new updates on earring styles, and this stud-plus-ear-jacket combo is a perfect example. Plus, this style is incredibly versatile. You can wear the diamond studs all on their own or with the j-post and pavé diamond disc to create sparkle on the top and bottom of your earlobes."

Diamond Linear Drop Earrings

Why We Love It:

"This dazzling linear style has a drop of 18 diamonds that's nearly two-inches long and flirts with the shoulders—the movement is beautiful! Long drops like these elongate and flatter most face shapes, so it's no surprise that they're trending again. A style this luminous is hard not to love."

Pear shaped Amethyst Threader Earrings

Why We Love It:

"At first glance this style looks like a traditional gemstone stud, but the addition of the threader-chain gives it a fresh spin. Amethyst, with its beautiful royal hue, is one of our most popular stones. This pear-shaped fancy cut makes these extra special."

Infinity Knot Tassel Earrings

Why We Love It:

"The infinity knot is an iconic symbol of eternal love with roots in Celtic, Greek and Roman culture. Given their popularity with our customers, it's always fun to bring in fresh interpretations or styles with interesting embellishments. These tassels add beautiful movement and texture to a timeless style."

Front-Back Double Bar Drop Earrings

Why We Love It:

"We've always got our eye on elevated designs that are versatile and look equally great for everyday wear or special occasions. With their dimensional intrigue and varied chain length, this style is a great go-everywhere choice whether you're wearing a white t-shirt or a formal dress."

3. Modern Pearls: New Twists on Classic Necklaces and Earrings

Freshwater Cultured Pearl Smile Necklace

Why We Love It:

"Blue Nile is defined by classics with a twist, and this graduated smile necklace embodies that spirit. We're really excited about modern takes on pearls and we love the lighthearted attitude of this style."

Freshwater Cultured Pearl Hoop Earrings

Why We Love It:

"Here's another contemporary take on pearls that mixes the beauty of a stud with a hoop. Thanks to the beautifully crafted inside-out design, pearls are visible from every angle."

Freshwater Cultured Pearl Earrings

Why We Love It:

"Pearl earrings have been a jewelry-box staple for decades, and this modern pearl-drop style is a fantastic expression of tradition crossed with modernity."

4. Layered Bracelets: Create Your Ultimate Wrist Stack with a Mix of Classic and Updated Styles

Petite Panther Bracelet

Why We Love It:

"The Petite Panther Bracelet is a staple—a classic that was likely in your grandmother's jewelry box. This style feels as good as it looks, with silky-smooth movement inherent in the beautifully crafted links. You can wear it alone or build a great wrist stack around it."

Diamond Station Heart Bracelet

Why We Love It:

"This delicate bracelet with stationed diamond accents is perfect for layering and easily integrated into any look—it's especially well-suited when paired with a watch, and it's another great option for everyday wear."

Stackable Pavé Diamond Bangle

Why We Love It:

"When you're looking for sparkle to add to your wrist stack, this eternity bangle is a luxe option that will never go out of style."

Fancies by the Yard Cushion-Cut Bezel Diamond Bracelet

Why We Love It:

"What's especially noteworthy here is the scale of the bezel-set, cushion-cut diamonds. Fancy shapes are super popular right now, and this design is a great piece to dress up or down because it's so easy to wear."
