The summer holidays are nearly upon us and with the promise of sun, sand, sea and Spritz (the Aperol kind!), it’s time to decide on what jewellery to take with me.
Whether it’s Ibiza or Italy, I can’t take my entire jewellery collection with me, so I have managed to choose the top five Noble Fine Jewellery pieces that will sparkle on the beach and the bar.
These are my brilliant go-to earrings as they will take you from a day on the beach right through to a glam night out. I wear them most days as you can dress them up or down, and the colour and style really boosts my tan and the relaxed glow that comes with being away!
These aren’t one for the beach, but definitely for those special evenings where the great food, fantastic company and seemingly limitless rose make fantastic memories. I find the sapphires take on a new colour when we are away, and I love how the different light and reflections from the sea seems to enhance the deep blue.
When I’m working or running around with the family, I’ve realised I don’t wear rings that often (apart from my wedding rings).
Maybe it’s because I’m having to be more practical or I’m rushing too much in the mornings – either way, I love when I’m holiday as it’s a time to sparkle and these are my favourites. They can be stacked together to make a real statement or worn separately for a more relaxed look.
Living in Antwerp, the opportunity for boasting a natural tan let alone showing it off by removing the several layers of warm clothes required during a Belgian summer, does not happen very often. Therefore, when there is a hint of bronze about me, I immediately put on my Rainbow Necklace. The stunning Zimmi Diamonds are even more striking on a tanned neck and the complementary fancy diamonds in sunshine colours really keep my holiday mood going, even when it seems like an age since we were away and the clouds are back.
Packing properly and travel insurance isn’t just reserved for avoiding spillages in my make-up bag or surviving a hotel mishap! I always make sure I am insured to travel with my jewellery and I try to ensure each piece is wrapped properly and protected in a secure and locked suitcase. For those that can go in a soft jewellery bag in my suitcase (e.g. necklaces and link bracelets), I make sure they are nestled in the middle and cushioned by clothes. For rings and my Stellar bracelet, I pack them in small boxes so they can’t get bent out of shape, and if I can, I try to carry them with me on the plane.
Wishing you a fabulous summer of sunshine scenes and sparkles… What will you be taking with you?
