Right now, there’s nothing better than enjoying the summer sun and surf - and there’s no better way to take a bit o’ the beach with you wherever you go than with seashell-inspired accessories!
Seashell accessories range from casual, with the easy beauty of a Bahamian straw market, to more resplendent, like Mesi Gilly’s Coral and Shell Ring (at left), which features stunning natural coral, silver, seed pearls in a natural shell setting. You can make shell accessories work with almost any summery attire: a tank and linen pants at a barbeque, a sleek sheath, a slim cut black suit.
Some of my favorite pieces to try: the Genuine Mother of Pearl Shell Pendant, which captures the raw beauty of the sea with tiny shell rectangles and genuine mother of pearl. I also like Conscious Jewelry’s Shell Necklace, a simple golden hued-shell on a textured gold chain. For a sea-inspired twist on the seashell jewelry trend, try Holsted Jewelers’ Freshwater Pearl Chandelier Earrings, which feature delicate clusters of genuine freshwater pearls and turquoise-colored crystals.
