Editor’s note: This post has been written by our fun and fashionable contributor Alexis Williams. Enjoy!

After being trapped in the depths of the seemingly never-ending polar vortex, a long, glorious summer is almost within reach. While your customers may choose to spend their days soaking up the sun on the beach and their nights being lulled into a cozy slumber underneath the stars, one thing is certain: Their summers won’t be complete without participating in a fun-filled activity with friends and family.

Make sure they are decked out in the boldest and brightest jewels just in time for summer vacation. Below you’ll find an array of accessories fit for enjoyable summer outings. Whether it’s a casual day at the park or a classy dinner, your customers will consider wearing at least one of the following pieces.  

Pool party. One of the staple events of the summer is a good, old-fashioned pool party. Guests are likely to don a light, airy maxi dress or a form-fitting strapless top with a breezy skirt while relaxing around the pool. However, the must-have accessory to make a brightly colored summer outfit come together is an eye-catching statement necklace.

Wine tasting. If your customers are searching for a more demure piece for an upscale event such as a wine tasting, they can never go wrong with a strand of pearls. Flexible with day or night outfits, wine connoisseurs (and amateurs) will walk around a vineyard embodying the essence of style.

Amusement park. It’s far too easy to lose your possessions at a theme park, but if your clients insist on sporting some bling, suggest a simple yet stylish pair of stud earrings. When they ride roller coasters or emerge from a water slide, their precious gems will always be in place.
