9 Gorgeous Summer Jewelry Picks that Won’t Weigh You Down


If you are in desperate need of a new pendant or ring, we’ve got you covered. The following pieces of unique, summer jewelry are perfect for hot days outside. None of these beautiful pieces will wear you down (and most are made using green practices).


1. A stately necklace by Maya Brenner found at One King’s Lane

Could this necklace be any cuter? I don’t think so. Maya Brenner is the artist behind the “Pick Your State Sterling Silver Necklace.” The California native founded her shop in 1998. Currently, One Kings Lane is selling her pieces that are in the shape of California, Illinois, Michigan, and North Carolina. This is the perfect piece to wear when you’re on the road so you can show your home-state pride! This piece is now priced at $99.

Neon earrings

2. Alexis Bittar’s ‘Lucite®’ Drop Earrings found at Nordstrom

I’m a sucker for anything that’s neon. So, I had to include this striking pair or earrings. I, of course, am a fan of the neon yellow pair, but you also can get these earrings in aqua, pink, and silver. These earrings are lightweight and made in the U.S.A. Priced at $115.

Black ring

3. The Black Druzy Ring made by Melissa Joy Manning

This recycled sterling silver ring is so simple in appearance but remains intriguing. The ring’s centerpiece features a Black Oval Druzy that’s approximately 9x12mm. This ring features a hand-hammered band and a bezel setting. It’s handmade in the artist’s California green certified studio. This ring is priced at $315.

Flowing necklace

4. Delicate Fringe Lariat found at Free People

Free People has some incredibly cute, light pieces of summer jewelry. My favorite? The Delicate Fringe Lariat.This flowing necklace goes for $38 and comes in five distinct designs.


Silver bangle

5. Skinny Bangle by Liv Haley

Sometimes all you need is a simple, silver bangle to set off your summer outfit. This bangle comes in silver or vermeil and is priced at $130.

Skull bracelet

6. The Alchemy Shop Skull Red Cord Charm Bracelet with Crystals found at Open Sky

There is nothing — nothing — I love more than a skull accessory. So, this bracelet really caught my eye. The skull featured on this bracelet is very dainty and subtle. And the red cord really sets this piece off. A great summer jewelry option for cheap — this is currently priced at $4.89!

Waterfall earrings

7. Waterfall Earrings found at Novica

Who doesn’t love to wear their birthstone? Novica is currently featuring pieces with carnelian, the birthstone of July. The stand out in this collection is this pair of Fiery Cascade Carnelian Earrings. The fiery gems really scream summer fun! Priced at $35.99. This handcrafted pair is from Ritu.

Spinner ring

8. Serenity Ring found at Sundance

Sundance’s jewelry never disappoints. Just look at this delicate spinner ring. The floral embellished part of this ring spins around the ring’s inner “spool.” The Serenity Ring is lightweight and will remind you to stay peaceful when anxiety gets the best of you.

Lemon posts

9. Lemon Wedge Posts found at Anthropologie

This pair of earrings is just cute. The tiny studs are in the shape of lush lemon slices. These bright yellow earrings are subtle but still fun! These earrings are only $28.
