Make it feel like summer whatever the weather with these eye-catching earrings

Make it feel like summer whatever the weather with these eye-catching earrings

From bold shades to seaside-inspired materials, these earrings will put you in a summer mood, despite any passing showers. 


Although the calendar informs me it’s July, you could be forgiven for guessing that we were still stuck back in spring sometime. Spells of sun can’t be relied upon for long, quickly turning to showers, and we even had wind warnings this weekend.

Still, we’re all too familiar of the many faces of an Irish summer, so we may as well just embrace the summer spirit, no matter what it looks like outside.

When it comes to jewellery, summer always seems to bring out the more adventurous side of people. Perhaps it’s because of our usual foreign holidays: even the most conservative jewellery wearer is tempted by a shell necklace, or big, bright earrings in their relaxed, sun-drenched state.

These six earrings all embody that spirit, so you don’t have to head to the Mediterranean to embrace a summer vibe.

These are the sort of earrings you want to wear by the pool, their bright red shade emphasised even more by your damp, slicked back hair as you devour a beach read. However, they’ll look equally striking with your favourite summer dress as you chill in the park. Mixed PLA earrings, €14.99, Mango.

Shell-inspired jewellery is all over the high street this summer, and it’s the perfect way to capture that beachy, ‘I’m on holidays vibe’, even if you’re in West Cork rather than the Costa del Sol. I love the pearlescent finish of this delicate pair. Shell Disc Drop Hoop Earrings, €13, Topshop.

These earrings are very Dolce & Gabbana circa 2016, and I’m totally here for it. They’re fun and most definitely summery, you can imagine you’re walking across an Italian piazza while wearing them. Lemon earrings, €9.99, H&M.

We all associate water with the summer months, from being by the ocean to dips in the pool, and this fish design is also reminiscent of the beautiful blue-green shades of the sea. Fish earrings with natural pearl, €12.95, Zara.

Many of us associate beads with summer jewellery, from the cheap bracelets we exchanged with friends as gifts to putting them in our hair. These earrings are a grown-up take on the colourful joy beads can bring, adding a touch of summery fun to any outfit. Roxanne Assoulin U-Tube gold-tone and enamel hoop earrings, €111.79, Net-a-Porter.

Another shell-inspired design, these elegant earrings are a sophisticated take on your favourite summer jewellery, with their gold tone adding warmth, even if the sun is struggling to. Shell Pendant Hanging Earrings, €29, & Other Stories.
