It’s that beautiful time of year as spring turns to summer, and we celebrate the summer solstice and all the new beginnings it brings. Celebrating the summer solstice with beautiful and bright jewellery pieces is a fantastic way to mark this vibrant season and dazzle with the sun. We've got some fittingly stunning pieces in our radiance and rainbow collections. Celebration of the sun The summer solstice is a celebration of the sun and the return of the light. In Latin, solstice means ‘sun standing still’. So with the sun at it’s highest and the day at it’s longest, you’ll need to celebrate in a special way. The summer solstice invites you to reflect on the relationship you have with yourself, so what better way to honour this momentous occasion than treating yourself with jewellery. This glowing diamond and 18ct solid yellow gold bangle is certainly taking a spotlight in our new radiance collection. With ten single bright sparkling diamonds, this bracelet will make the perfect addition to any summer’s day or night.

This breathtaking necklace, crafted from 19ct white gold, features a slice of watermelon tourmaline surrounded by a dazzling halo of bright sparkling diamonds. With such a beautiful appearance and symbolic meaning, this piece is perfect for the change of a season.

It was believed that on this midsummer’s night, the spirit and human world could combine, allowing free movement in between, giving this night it’s spiritual origins. Many ancient rituals involve lighting fires throughout the day and night of the summer solstice to celebrate. Orange sapphire is the perfect nod to this special occasion, radiating magnificent fiery tones and symbolising power and strength, amongst other magical qualities. Crafted from 18ct yellow gold, this lustrous pair of rose cut orange sapphire and diamond halo earrings are the ideal choice to mirror the occasion’s intense provenance.

A diamond opens the mind to new possibilities and is known as the ‘stone of invincibility’, bringing superior strength, much like the sun.
