Here’s the only summer jewellery you should be shelling out for

We’ve finally reached the end of May, which means vacation season is almost within our grasp. While we’re all eagerly awaiting the chance to jet-set to a tropical beach holiday in Southeast Asia, or a sophisticated retreat on the Amalfi Coast, we can begin to get a taste of that sun-drenched beach getaway right now by taking part in one of the top jewellery trends of the season: shell-embellished jewels.

It might be a throwback but according to what we saw on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways, sea-inspired jewellery is definitely here to stay this season, and has been spotted on fashion icons from Gigi Hadid to numerous style influencers across the globe. Of course, we’re talking about more upgraded iterations, all of which have been tastefully arranged and treated with a contemporary fashion makeover. Scroll down to see our selection of the best shell jewellery that you should be ‘shelling out’ for this summer.

Chan Luu

Evoking our childhood memories of collecting and stringing together seashells on the beach, designer Chan Luu has created a series of beautiful shell jewels that will take your breathe away. These earrings, in particular, feature polished silver, pearls, and Drupa shells that fall just below your jawline, and will swing elegantly as you take a stroll through the city or by the beach.

Pascale Monvoisin

Minimalistic jewels are back on trend right now, and we love the single porcelain shell overlaid with tiny diamonds on this slender, 9-karat gold ‘Cauri’ bracelet by Pascale Monvoisin. It should match nicely with your sophisticated attire, stacked alongside other delicate jewels.

Brinker & Eliza

Puka shell choker necklaces have been spotted on almost every fashion girl across the globe, including Gigi Hadid. This one by Brinker & Eliza is made with Cowrie shells with gold-plated accents to give it a more polished and stylish spin. We also love the little sunshine motif on one end of the necklace, giving it a special finish as it dangles at the back of your neck.

For the Spring/Summer 2019 season, Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele sent out models wearing a number of ivory-looking jewellery pieces, including this lovely cuff adorned with star and shell symbols surrounding the house’s GG plaque for a romantic and whimsical allure.

Anita Berisha

Strung with lustrous shells and pearls that sweep just below your jawline, these mismatched ‘Mermaid’ earrings by Anita Berisha look like something straight out of a fairytale. Wear it with a romantic white dress to complete the dreamy look.

Oscar de la Renta

Part of Oscar de la Renta‘s SS19 collection, these clip earrings were inspired from co-creative director Laura Kim’s vacation. They feature a pair of gold-casted clams embellished with faux pearls for a gorgeous, vacation-ready appeal.

Alexander McQueen

In contrast to the pieces above, this silver charm bracelet exudes a dark and romantic aesthetic courtesy of Alexander McQueen. It features a selection of shell charms as well as faux pearls and faceted crystal drops amongst other gothic nuances and natural motifs, giving it a little bit of a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe.
