When it comes to trends, jewelry is a simple way to incorporate the latest fads into personal style. So what are some of this summer’s hot trends in jewelry? I’ve got you covered with a few of the current styles and where to find them.

Statement pieces

Whether necklaces, earrings or a big chunky ring, bold-statement jewelry is in. This trend seems to keep building, and there is a ton to choose from when going for a statement piece. Some of the hippest statement earrings can be found at The Heidi Lowe Gallery in Rehoboth (328 Rehoboth Ave., 302-227-9203).

The gallery features dozens of styles, from vintage-inspired pieces to chevrons and simple statements. “Decoration is back,” says Lowe, and her gallery features a huge selection.

Sideways crosses and infinity symbols

Sideways crosses have been everywhere lately, and I have to say I like the way they look. Also in? The infinity sign, as seen on the popular TV show “Revenge.” These looks are being customized at Atlantic Jewelry on the south side of the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach (302-226-0675). The Harry K exclusive jewelry line includes both these trends in a variety of high-quality golds, in necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Rose gold

Rose gold really came into trend this year. The color is not white gold, and it’s not gold. It's somewhere in between. I love the way it looks because it has an expensive, throwback feel. If you ask me, rose gold is one of those perfect metals to mix with silver or gold pieces so you can double up and mix metals while incorporating gold into your repertoire.

Stacking rings

Stacking rings are really fun because you can wear them in a variety of ways. It’s also another way to wear mixed metal (another fun trend) in a subtle way. These can also be as fancy as you like - from less-expensive stackables to expensive, high-end silver and gold stacking rings.

I spotted some simple, eye-catching stackables at Bella Luna (127 Rehoboth Ave., 302-227-0267).

Of course, when it comes to getting the basics and essentials, Silver Works (149 Rehoboth Ave., 302-227-1707) is a great choice. With their deep discounts and sales this summer for their final season, the prices are unbeatable. Classics, as they say, never go out of style.
