Citrine For Summer

Pantone may have named marsala color of the year, but we’re claiming citrine as the color of the season. What could be more summery than the hue of this vibrant gemstone, which captures the rich gold and yellows of summer sunshine? Join team #citrine and try these fresh looks.

Wear to work with Szul Citrine Jewelry

 The Powerhouse

Citrine is said to be a “success stone.” Whether or not you believe in citrine’s purported powers to attract abundance, it certainly can’t hurt to have this confident color on in the office. The key to pulling off contemporary gemstones in more traditional professional environments is to stick with classic cuts.

Nautical Style + Citrine Szul Jewelry

 On Fleek for Fleet Week

Nautical ensembles are a trend that seems to keep coming back. Keep the Fleet Week spirit going with a citrine twist by pairing stripes with sweet, slightly quirky citrine accessories, like unusual pendant necklaces, to balance prep with pop.

Kimono Dress Style with Szul Citrine Jewelry

 Cute With Kimonos

Kimonos were trending on the spring and summer catwalks. Balance the kimono’s flowy (and oh-so comfy!) silhouette with an updo and delicate earrings.

Red With Szul Citrine Jewelry

Sunset Hues

Bright, bold red is another so-called “trend” that is also ever-so classic. Give it an extra summery edge by pairing with sunny citrine set in yellow gold for a look to compete with the summer sunsets.

Bohemian Sunshine - Boho Dress with Szul Citrine

 Bohemian Sunshine

Stay chic on the hottest of summer days with gauzy white hippy-couture dresses. Stones such as coral and turquoise are familiar pairings for 70’s inspired looks, but citrine brings a fresh, classy touch to breezy ensembles.

Graduation Gifts for Every Level

It’s graduation season! Whether they’re graduating high school, college, grad school, a certification program, or even middle school, one great way to celebrate the grad in your life is with the gift of jewelry. A quality piece of jewelry will last your grad through trends, jobs, and careers, a constant reminder of how proud you are of them. Here are our suggestions for some great gifts for grads of any age.

Junior High Graduation Gifts by Szul Jewelry

Middle School

Middle school graduation is a great time to introduce your daughter to quality, classy jewelry. The key is to pick something classic enough to last but simple and chic enough to fit in with all those many phases to come. It should also be age appropriate–think light and sweet, not big and blingy. Pendants work nicely for girls this age. They’re a little harder to lose than small studs or rings. Worried about investing too much in something your child might lose? Don’t worry–Szul has many affordable options and frequent sales.

Zodiac and Initual Pendants Plus Engravable Bracelet and Money clip from Szul Jewelry

 

High School

Identity becomes increasingly important to high school graduates, many of whom will be leaving home for the first time to set out on their own. Zodiac, initials, and engraved jewelry are a great way to give them a reminder that you will always love them for who they are.

College Graduation Gifts from Szul Jewelry

 

College or Trade School

Graduates from college or trade school are about to embark on a series of career-level interviews. Send them off with confidence with a jewelry set featuring neat, classic pieces that will add a professional touch to their interview outfits.  Another pretty and practical idea is a simple tennis bracelet–endlessly versatile and always chic.

Graduate School

Time to put a ring on it! A big, solid ring is a great professional piece, not to mention one which they’ll see every time they type up grant proposals or shake hands. Bonus points if you can find one to match the field they’ve dedicated themselves to (someone please buy a stylish herpetologist that snake ring!).

Pool Party Pretty: Pairing Jewelry with Swimsuits

A cute suit or cover up is just as much an investment as any other summer outfit, and with the variety of pool or seaside social gatherings ahead, just as versatile. So doesn’t pretty swimwear deserve equally pretty accessories? Try these tips for pairing jewelry with swimwear.

 

Black swimwear and gold jewelry

 

 

Pick One or Two Types

You don’t want to overwhelm the look or get too matchy-matchy with jewelry all over. Stick with a necklace and ring, bracelet and earrings, etc. Or better yet, go with one statement piece.

 

Szul Ring and Swimsuit

 

 

Wear Sunscreen

Not only does it help prevent skin cancer, it keeps you from acquiring bauble-shaped tan lines.

 

Leaf ring with leaf swimsuit

 

 

Stick with Solids in the Sand

Going to the shore? Avoid anything too soft and vulnerable, like rose gold, citrine or sapphire, which can easily be scratched by sand. Play it safe and stick with solids like gold and silver, or hard gemstones, like diamonds and rubies.

 

Cover up styled with Szul Jewelry

 

 

More Skin, Less Shine

Delicate necklaces or bracelets work well with figure-flaunting swimsuits, while bolder, chunkier statement pieces are best paired with sundresses or coverups.

 

White one-piece with Szul initial pendant

 

 

No Silver with Salt

Sterling silver can tarnish quickly in chlorine and saltwater, so if you plan on wearing your jewelry while you swim, stick with solid gold.

Modern Pearls: Contemporary Twists on the Classic

Love the look of pearls, but uncertain of their place beyond bridal parties and country clubs? Good news: pearls are trendier than ever to bring a classic touch to the the latest looks. Try these tips for wearing pearls today!

Athletic Wear Styled With Szul Pearl Jewelry

 

 

Pair With Athleisure

Athleisure is still trendy–just look at the recent health goth trend. Pairing pearls with sporty pieces is a great way to bring balance and interest to your look. The key is to invest in quality athletic wear, and to try to match colors.. For example, pair a cream pearl bracelet with cream colored slip on sneakers, or a black pearl bracelet with an upscale black hoodie.

 

Brights Styled with Szul Pearl Jewelry

 

 

Bling Out Your Brights

When in doubt, defer to fashion queen and real-life Dutchess Kate Middleton. Kate has been a key player in the resurgence of pearl jewelry. One way she makes the old school staple trendy is by using muted, ladylike pearls to contrast bright or bold colors.

 

Pearl Necklaces to Wear In Hair

 

 

Wear in Your Hair

Make your pearls Coachella-chic by using them as a festival-ready headband. Take a shorter pearl necklace, drape over your head, and secure with bobby pins. Check out this video for a visual. Pendant style necklaces provide more of a diadem effect, while simple strands are a little more straight forward.

 

Denim and Pearls, Styled With Szul Jewelry

 

 

Dress Up Your Jeans

Having a jeans and a t-shirt kinda day, but need at least a little bit of a boost? Pearls pair great with denim. Wear two classic favorites by sticking with a simple pearl cuff or strand paired with fitted, gently distressed denim for a look that’s ladylike without being too made-up.

Dress Up Your Sundress

It’s that time of year again, when women across the country can pull out that floatiest, lightest, most beloved of garments: the sundress. The perfect sundress keeps you cool on hot days and makes getting ready for the beach or the bar a cinch. Its only downfall? Sundresses can feel a bit simple, especially if you are fortunate enough to have found one you have been wearing for many seasons. Accessories are the fastest, most effective way to keep your look updated and fun. Here are some ideas for what to wear with this season’s prettiest styles.

 

 

White Summer Dress w/ Gold Accessories

 

 

The Little White Dress

Want to make your white dress even more striking? Pair it with lots of color. White and yellow gold give you that greek-goddess look, while gemstones in bright colors really pop in contrast. Take advantage of the versatility of white to bring out vivid, confident pieces

 

Strapless Dress and Accesories

 

 

Strapless

Strapless styles are all about showing off the neck and collarbone region. Necklaces, especially longer styles, can distract the eye. Instead, try drop or chandelier style earrings. Bonus points for pairing with a messy updo.

 

 

Romper Styled with Szul Pearl Jewelry

 

 

Romper

The romper is a particularly polarizing style. At worst, it can be too childish, but done right, it offers all the comfort and security of pants with the femininity and put-togetherness of a dress. To really bring it into big-girl territory, pair with a simple but elegant pearls for a look that’s ladylike and fun.

 

Long Patterned Dress Styled with Szul Jewelry

 

 

Patterned, Maxi, Bohemian

What was it that Coco Chanel said, something about always taking off a piece of jewelry before leaving the house? Well, forget that! The bohemian trend is all about layering. The trick is to keep the pieces simple and balanced. Try delicate pendant necklaces paired with rings in mixed metals for a look that’s luxe and laid back. Bonus points for using pieces with a vintage look.

 

 

Black dress styled with Szul Jewelry

 

 

Summer Blacks and Blues

Black and navy can seem severe in summer, but there’s nothing more flattering–or easier to take you straight from the boardroom to the boardwalk. When you’re in the office, transform yourself with a blazer, simple studs, and a bracelet in a matching metal and stone. After hours, mix it up with a fun statement piece, like initial pendants. You can even keep your professional pieces at your desk for emergency makeovers.
