2. Radiata Ring
With its arching curves and brilliant diamond flowers, the Radiata Ring perfectly captures the romance and vibrance of the summer season. This breathtaking design boasts a beautifully designed open upper band, which features two white gold bands and four diamond set bands. The outermost diamond bands arch elegantly and cross to create an eye-catching shape, while two diamond flowers add charm and whimsy to this lovely design. The intricate design of the Radiata ring provides the perfect balance of delicate femininity and bold glamour, making it a right hand ring that’s sure to turn heads.
3. Babi Diamond Earrings
The Babi Earrings are the ideal accessory for any summer outfit, whether you’re dressing for work, a special event, or a beachside stroll out in the warm weather. These delicate diamond earrings by Coronet combine the look of a bold pair of diamond studs with the chic silhouette of a pair of huggie hoops, giving them beautiful brilliance and truly classic look.
Note that though the circular settings on these petite hoops each look like they hold two carat diamonds, these stunning earrings cost a tenth of what a four carat total weight pair of diamond studs would cost. That’s because this design, which features 1.40 total carats of diamonds, utilizes patented Coronet settings that seamlessly hold their enclosed diamonds together to create the illusion of larger center stones.
4. Floating Diamond Flower Necklace
Lovely and brilliant, this floating diamond flower necklace will add the perfect touch to your summer looks. Here, a cluster of diamonds rests within an open circle crafted from 14k white gold. These diamonds are artfully arranged together in a Coronet setting to create the illusion of a single diamond flower that suspends from within the necklace’s pendant.
This stunning pendant necklace is one of our favorite designs at the moment because it’s classic, yet has unique details that make it feel much more personal. From a distance, this necklace looks like a stunning traditional solitaire diamond pendant. And like a solitaire diamond pendant, this necklace will pair well with virtually every look. But, then, up close you can see the gorgeous details that make this piece so sweet, summery, and special.
5. Gemstone and Diamond Statement Earrings
No list of the best summer jewelry would be complete without a showstopping gemstone piece. And our gemstone design of choice for 2020 is this truly spectacular pair of diamond and gemstone earrings. Each of these gorgeous earrings features six richly colored rubies and dozens of dazzling diamonds. A diamond halo set ruby rests at the top of each earring, while a solitaire set ruby connects the halo to an open marquise motif covered in diamonds, which rest in beaded shared prongs. Four perfectly matched rubies dangle within these diamond-set marquise shapes, allowing them to sway with the movement of the wearer.
Thanks to their bold shape, stunning hue, and incredible shimmer, these captivating statement earrings are an ideal option for when you want to dress to the nines in the summer. But the rich, deep color of the rubies used here also make these earrings a versatile styling option that will look just as incredible in fall and winter. So, these luxe earrings are an heirloom quality design that you can enjoy wearing this summer and for many seasons to come.
