Whether it's an aperol spritz on the Amalfi coast or pastries in Paris, there’s a jewellery edit for that. We break down the versatile summer-ready pieces to take to a variety of destinations that can be worn (and packed) on repeat for years to come. Now cue the warm weather and Instagram-worthy sunsets.
Escape to Italy
It’s time to live La Dolce Vita where more really is more (maximalists, this is your time to shine). From roaming in Rome to leaning into Pisa, you’ll be eating spaghetti or tucking into pizza wearing your favourite Lucy Williams Roman Arc Coin Necklace. Italy is synonymous with timeless elegance and refined fashion so let your jewellery take centre stage.
The star of the White Lotus’ second season, Sicily is where the jetsetters are jetting into. Discover Palermo in the North West or Taormina in the South East, feasting on granita and brioche buns, or booking a boat trip to enjoy the clear blue ocean.
In Sorrento or Positano, embrace the Italian love for statement rings with bold designs like our Enamel & Stone Dome Statement Ring in our picante orange colourway. Colour is everything here so turn up the brights with hand-painted enamel or meaningful gemstones. Pair your swimwear and oversized beach hats with statement jewellery like our Molten Gemstone Chubby Small Hoops.
Greece, on the other hand, is a more relaxed holiday destination, with a real bohemian spirit (Joni Mitchell once spent months living in a cave in Matala). Sip or shot ouzo with a side of calamari and souvlaki, while wearing free-spirited styles such as our Amazonite Lena Charm Choker in its poolside hue.
We’re also looking to our Lucy Williams x Missoma collaboration, with our latest collection shot in a Scott Williams villa (the incredible Beach House Arvi in Crete). The Horn pendant or cord jewellery combines immaculately with breezy linen outfits for everything from Taverna-hopping to island-swapping.
Milos is the hotspot of the Cyclades right now, an island with a remote feel where you can rent boat houses and swim from dawn until dusk. Firopotamos and Firiplaka beaches are considered some of the best. It can get pretty windy in this part of Greece so just ensure you have some warmer layers. If Skiathos is calling your name, channel your inner Mamma Mia with lightweight blouses, swimsuits, and slip-on sandals, accessorised with a cord anklet.
City Break Style
Walk the streets of Lisbon or Paris while styling up your Missoma x Le Specs sunglasses. Whether it’s a long weekend, or a slow-break week, opt for statement pieces like our Baya Hoops that blend effortlessly with a cosmopolitan backdrop. A city break is also the ultimate excuse to experiment with the current trend of mixing metals.
You’ll be finding tucked away wine bars, perusing bookshops, or wandering cobbled streets searching for the perfect bakery for a midday pick-me-up. Trainers are a must for the thousands of steps you’ll acquire, with wide legs jeans and maximalist pieces (looking at you: Savi Ridge Gemstone Ring) for dinner and a show.
Dreaming of Ibiza
The White Isle is having its renaissance. While clubbing is still on the menu for most, there’s now a real wellness side to the island with sound baths, healthy food, and workshops for the early risers.
Head to The Standard in the Old Town, wearing your Lucy Williams T-Bar Chain, for its rooftop pool and incredible atmosphere (our collaborator Harris Reed is often spotted there).
We'll be eating fresh prawns for a low-key lunch, followed by tapas for dinner with sangria on the side. Find yourself a daybed at a beach club and relax, layering up in our Jelly Heart rings and Lucy Williams Flat Curb Chain Necklace. We've been told Cala Carbo is the ultimate hidden beach known for its restaurants and casual atmosphere to watch the pink sunsets from. See you on the lounger.
Not flying away? Oftentimes our own backyard is just as great a destination. For the classic UK staycay, we’re packing Birkenstocks, jeans, and a cosy jumper, and an Axiom Chain — alongside a swimsuit just in case. Cottagecore is still a thing, and it goes perfectly with pearl jewellery for a touch of classic British-ness. This is summer road trip territory, freewheeling it across to Kent, down to Cornwall, or up to the Isle of Skye for scenery that’ll make you feel like you’re in a movie. Stack with forget-they're-there Zenyu Fan Drop Earrings, or upgrade with a gemstone statement ring like our Jelly Heart in Black Onyx. We’re all for finding the quaintest seaside town you can and antique-hunting along the way.
