For our latest lookbook, we’re showing you how to bring fine jewelry into the daytime hours, so sit back, relax, and bask in the light of bright metals, colorful gemstones and glittering diamonds as we break down nine luxe looks to try.
1. Golden Summer
Go for high-shine gold with big, bold pieces like sculptural earrings, chain link necklaces and gilded cuffs.
Pair them with . . . your floatiest summer sundresses. The weighty look helps ground wispy styles, providing an edgy contrast.
2. Bed Of Roses
Consider rose gold the shade of the season. It feels feminine — particularly when done in delicate stack rings or thin-band bangles — and like soft pink lighting, it flatters all skin tones.
Pair it with . . . . classic black or white. The neutrals serve to highlight the gorgeous shade, not detract from it. Rose gold also complements yellow and silver jewelry, so don’t be afraid to combine it with other pieces for a mixed metal look.
3. Match Point
The diamond tennis bracelet has returned from the 80s. This time, it’s paired with a matching necklace for a pulled-together look that’s very ladies-who-lunch.
Pair them with . . . distressed denim. Because the diamond set is so dainty, wearing it with pieces like a full skirt or top-handle bag may seem a little Stepford Wife. Instead, light wash jeans and a simple tee give it high-low mix that’s surprisingly fresh.
4. Off The Cuff
A leather bracelet with metal hardware or wrapped strap watch toughen up summer looks. We love how these Hèrmes styles break away from basic brown or black with clean white and citrus orange. While one makes a statement on its own, stacking two or three packs a powerful punch.
Pair them with . . . summer leather. A leather top or skirt can be a welcome antidote to summer’s pastels and floral prints, but when styled with a couple leather cuffs, the downtown cool look is perfection.
5. Dream In Color
Brights rule the summer season, so inject color into your jewelry box with the addition of rubies, sapphires or citrine. Consider combining multiple shades by stacking gemmed rings or bracelets for a pretty prismatic look.
Pair them with . . . pastels and brights. Instead of falling back on basic neutrals, amp up the vibrancy of your look by coupling gemstones with colorful clothing. A yellow dress with amethyst, a soft pink blouse with blue topaz — the shades will help complement one another (think of it as color blocking with fine jewelry).
6. Daytime Diamonds
For an easy way to incorporate sparkle into everyday dress, try diamond earrings. When done in classic styles like a simple stud or hanging solitaire, they provide a touch of shimmer without being overly showy.
Pair them with . . . an off-the-shoulder dress or top. Diamond earrings with sleek, straightforward design go well with polished casual looks and dressed-up ensembles, but an off-the-shoulder style draws the eye up toward the ear to put the jewelry on display.
7. Simple Pleasures
There are a few essentials every woman needs in her fine jewelry collection: diamond earrings (see #6), a bright golden bangle and a striking statement ring. For this look, we’ve incorporated all three for a combination that’s understatedly elegant.
Pair them with . . . anything. These are classics after all, so they can go from your desk to dinner out. Wear one piece for a simple touch of luxe, or mix and match them with your other go-to pieces.
8. Born To Be Bold
A statement necklace is all you need to make any ensemble look finished. This gold design hits on the tribal motif happening on the runways, but a beaded or gemstone style would be equally eye-catching.
Pair it with . . .your summer LBD. We love the look of this dress which offers low-cut sex appeal in contrast to the jewelry’s high collar. The combination feels seductive, edgy and ornate, like a modern Fellini heroine.
9. High Wire
For sterling silver jewelry in the summer months, look to David Yurman’s signature cable styles. Done in a bracelet or necklace with accents of yellow gold, it’s the perfect weighty piece that’s sure to become a key player in your regular rotation.
Pair it with . . . more, more, more. These bracelets and necklaces hold their own solo, but make for the ultimate layered assemblage when worn in multiples. Stack two to three for a striking, unexpected look.
