Elevate Your Summer Looks With This Eccentric But Timeless Jewelry Collection

Sponsor Content Created With Cartier


I'm approaching summer with one bold idea: More is more when it comes to jewelry. And there's one collection that exhibits exactly that. With its new double-row stud designs, Clash de Cartier has once again pushed the boundaries to create jewels that embrace contrast any way you stack them. Sharp edges (a nod to the punk aesthetic) are beautifully blended with the soft curves of the gold (yellow, rose, and white) jewelry, emphasizing the power of duality. And I must say each piece is impeccable. Keep scrolling to see my favorite looks, including one that's all about doubling down on studs for summer.


Cue the master class on clashing. I'm loving the play on proportions in this look: the yellow-gold double-stud ring, miniskirt, small pendant necklace, and oversize watch. It all just works. Larger watches that have a borrowed-from-the-boys feel are having a moment in women's fashion right now. This year, I've seen more unique watch stacks than ever before, and I know it's due to the countless number of celebs and It girls showcasing their Cartier watches (the Santos de Cartier especially). I, for one, am very much here for it. And since mixing metals is so in, this two-toned model pairs perfectly with a Clash de Cartier bracelet. Add the new double-stud Clash ring—the first piece in this collection crafted in yellow gold—for a look that's sure to earn you compliments.


While this dress makes me think of the vivid summer sunsets we get here on the West Coast, the stacks of Clash jewels catch the light like no other. One thing I love is that the striking colors in this print mimic the same contrasting elements in the Clash de Cartier collection (the sharp edges and smooth lines I mentioned). I'm gravitating toward doubled-up jewelry for summer: two necklaces, two earrings, and two bracelets. It's as if the pieces were made to fit together like a puzzle. And if you can't choose just one, then this ultra-layered situation is definitely for you.


This outfit is all about denim, diamonds, and Clash for a look that has major wow factor for days. The outfit is styled with the new double-row stud bracelet (it's a showstopper), a classic tennis bracelet, and the Clash flexible bracelet for an eccentric, layered look with a chic twist. The rest of the stacks stay pared down, but the oversize single earring paired with an understated diamond hoop is a finishing touch that really emphasizes the spikiness of the complex design.


This season, crochet is getting an upgrade with intricate hand-woven details that add a touch of sophistication, like this oversize rosette on the top. That same complex detailing can be found in the craftsmanship of the Clash collection. There's something about wearing rose gold (with hints of diamonds because why not?) with this look that feels both playful and polished. Plus, the combination of the flexible-model and regular-model Clash bracelets adds that extra contrasting element to complete the look. If you don't see me walking the sands of Mykonos (or visiting the Cartier pop-up there) in this whole ensemble, then I'm doing something wrong.


You heard it here first: Bold and bright red is the color of the summer. The red hue of the outfit and the white-gold jewelry moment play into the boldness of this eye-catching look. The combination of the two just really pops. And if your heart skipped a beat when you saw the diamonds, I don't blame you. The unexpected pairing of the two Clash rings (one in the small size and the other in medium) makes the perfect unexpected statement.
