Updated: Apr 26, 2022

Many different jewelry trends have dominated the red carpet and fashion weeks throughout the years. Jewelry has always been the quintessential wardrobe must haves that will withstand the test of time, since it allows people to express their uniqueness and accessorize in a personal way.

Even though jewelry trends have changed inordinately throughout the years, these eight jewelry trends will combine traditional pieces and fit them into this summers era of fashion. Whether you are into the summer chic or blinged out style, there are enough trending pieces to make you a ray of sunshine everywhere you go this summer.

#1 Summer Jewelry Trend:

Pearls are timeless and memorable. You can never go wrong with pearls as they are a versatile piece of jewelry that can be worn with jeans or an evening gown and the resurgence of them are back in full swing this summer.

Do you know how pearls are born?

According to American Peal, The birth of a pearl is truly a miraculous event. Unlike gemstones or precious metals that must be mined from the earth, pearls are grown by live oysters far below the surface of the sea. Gemstones must be cut and polished to bring out their beauty. But pearls need no such treatment to reveal their loveliness. They are born from oysters complete - with a shimmering iridescence, luster and soft inner glow unlike any other gem on earth.

A natural pearl begins its life as a foreign object, such as a parasite or piece of shell that accidentally lodges itself in an oyster's soft inner body where it cannot be expelled. To ease this irritant, the oyster's body takes defensive action. The oyster begins to secrete a smooth, hard crystalline substance around the irritant in order to protect itself. This substance is called "nacre." As long as the irritant remains within its body, the oyster will continue to secrete nacre around it, layer upon layer. Over time, the irritant will be completely encased by the silky crystalline coatings. And the result, ultimately, is the lovely and lustrous gem called a pearl.

How something so wondrous emerges from an oyster's way of protecting itself is one of nature's loveliest surprises. For the nacre is not just a soothing substance. It is composed of microscopic crystals of calcium carbonate, aligned perfectly with one another, so that light passing along the axis of one crystal is reflected and refracted by another to produce a rainbow of light and color.

Cultured pearls share the same properties as natural pearls. Oysters form cultured pearls in an almost identical fashion. The only difference is a person carefully implants the irritant in the oyster, rather than leaving it to chance. We then step aside and let nature create its miracle.

Shop at The Estate Center where there is a unique selection of pearls starting at $125.

Do you know how the Tennis Bracelet got its name?

Tennis Bracelets were once called the line bracelet in the 1920s with its row of diamonds and or gemstones. It was very popular during the 20th century and could be found in different settings and size and cuts of gemstones. When Chris Evert lost her line bracelet on the tennis court in 1978 during a tennis match the bracelet received the nickname that still describes it today—the tennis bracelet.
