For those of us still caught in a paralyzing, neverending winter, an escape from the freezing cold can’t come soon enough. Recently, while helping my mother pack for a week-long trip to Puerto Rico with her girlfriends, I noticed she had difficulty picking out the perfect jewelry to bring. Since she was hightailing it to a tropical paradise, I suggested she take her most vibrant necklaces and colorful earrings to brighten up her easy, breezy ensembles. But this got me thinking: Whether you’re an adventurous globe-trotter or a curious city-hopper, accessorizing properly for vacations in different climates can help transform you from a stumped sightseer to a savvy native. If your customers (or you!) are looking to get out of town, offer up these jewels to make their getaways a glamorous one, no matter where they go.

At the Beach
Is your customer looking to soak up the sun or stun at a clambake? Opt for glistening gold pieces or ocean-themed jewels to pair with a light maxi dress and sun hat or a flowy chiffon blouse and silky skirt.
When there are animals about, these gems will definitely make your customers stand out. Sky-kissed turquoise has a simplistic appeal, while rope-detailed gold pieces will give them a more ancient, regal feel.
“If nautical nonsense is something they wish” (thanks, SpongeBob!), add these pieces to your customers’ jewelry dish. Anchor ears with silver studs or hang a string of pearls around their necks so they can set sail in style.
In the City
From New York to Los Angeles, staying chic in a metropolis is a must. Elegant emerald gemstones matched with a set of classic diamond studs make for a sleek look. Be sure to present a glistening gold watch for the hustle and bustle, and they’ll be ready to go!
Hitting the Slopes
If chilling out in the cold is more their thing, frost your customers in fancy bling. Stay icy in a showstopping diamond and sapphire necklace. Après ski, suggest upping their glam by adding a pair of cluster earrings or a striking tennis bracelet to strut around a cozy lodge.
