I love gold jewellery, particularly in summer. The warm yellow tones always look beautiful against sun-kissed skin. So, as this wonderful season is now in full-swing I thought I would do a little round-up of my favourite summer jewellery trends. 

Starting with pearls...(above) Who can go wrong with those classic beauties? What I love about the pearl trend nowadays is how brands design them with a more edgy look in mind, changing the perception that pearls are only to be worn by little old grandmas :)

Thin lines is my next current obsession. Gold jewellery has always been elegant but these dainty pieces are like flecks of shimmer on your skin - that little bit of frosting to dress up a casual outfit after a day at the beach.

We can't forget, of course, the 70's festival chick trend. It's all about layers on the neck and stacking on the wrists - the more the better. I love this trend because you can pretty much grab all of your favourite pieces, wear them together, and you'll still look like you've just stepped out of a weekend at Coachella.

Finally, cuffs and chokers have finally made a comeback. I remember when black wire chokers were in fashion in the 90's, I guess fashion repeats itself... So, I wonder if that means I'd better head home and raid my high-school wardrobe? Most likely not!!
