If you think about it, fruit and gemstones have quite a bit in common.
Have you ever looked at a gemstone and thought, “Well, that’s juicy!” (I do it all the time.) Or how about the signature Tutti Frutti collection by Cartier—colorful, gemmy, iconic, and historic. The line, which dates back to the 1920s, was inspired by India—but the name brings thoughts of candied fruit.
So yeah, you don’t have to go far to draw a connection between gemstones and fruit. But how about jewels made in the likeness of fruit? Some have gemstones, some do not. They depict nature’s most delicious gifts, and are perfect for summer dressing.
This lighthearted spirit relates to consumers’ thirst for whimsical pieces—like the animal jewels that have been so popular over the past year—and also ties in with ’90s-inspired trends (anyone else suddenly want to wear cherry everything?).
Just before Memorial Day weekend kicks off, check out these juicy jewels for the summer season.
