Ocean Life Necklaces Were Made For Summer


Crit­ter jew­elry is still very pop­u­lar, and I love to wear my owls and frogs. But, when sum­mer comes, my favorite neck­laces and pen­dants are teem­ing with sea life!

Fish, sea­horses, starfish, sea shells, sea tur­tles.… I can’t get enough. Big and bold or small and dainty, noth­ing embod­ies sum­mer like them!

The best thing about these aquatic beau­ties is you don’t have to spend a for­tune to have a nice lit­tle col­lec­tion of all mem­bers of the ocean float­ing around your neck. Places like Ama­zon, For­ever 21, ebay, Char­lotte Russe and Francesca’s have tons of sea life jew­elry (not just neck­laces that I’m focus­ing on here) at incred­i­bly afford­able prices.… some­times only a few dol­lars! Then, there is one designer who really excels is sea life jew­elry, and you’ll see a cou­ple of her cre­ations below… Bet­sey Johnson.

I’m just post­ing a tiny sam­ple of what you can find out there, but it gives you a great idea of how you can add some fishy style to your out­fits. You can mix and match and layer your favorites for a truly per­son­al­ized look.

I have sev­eral long chains (like 24–36 inch) that I like to wear my big­ger pen­dants on, espe­cially my sea horses and sea tur­tles. One big state­ment pen­dant, sim­ple ear­rings, a great ring, and I’m good to go. I love to wear them when I have a cute sum­mer cami and denim shorts on. Noth­ing says beach more than that!

If you have some cute sea life pins, they also make great pen­dants OR hair clips! A sparkling crys­tal starfish looks adorable pinned in a side pony or bun!

I’m not a matchy-matchy per­son, so my other jew­elry I wear with these (like a bracelet or ear­rings) are almost never the same thing. I don’t wear a sea tur­tle pen­dant AND ear­rings, but I do coor­di­nate with maybe a sea shell or starfish accented bracelet some­times. This type of jew­elry was made to mix and match, so go for it. The only time I tend to match a lit­tle more is with my starfish jew­elry… For some rea­son that doesn’t get to be too much for my taste.
