Here’s a roundup of Fashion Jewelry and Fine Jewelry designs that are hot on our radar this summer. Wear them in good health!
QALO Silicone Wedding Rings
QALO is a Cali-based company specializing in silicone wedding rings and fashion rings for folks with active lifestyles. Many men and women are wearing these lightweight, colorful bands to replace their wedding rings while they’re exercising or playing sports. Others are embracing QALO rings as permanent symbols of their love and commitment.
QALO is an acronym for “Quality…Athletics…Love…Outdoors,” but the trendy silicone rings are perfect for the gym as well. They’re slip-proof, comfortable, fun and affordable! Available in dozens of solids, stripes, and patterns, most are $24.95 at qalo.com.
Alison Lou X J. Crew
In May we showcased supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, the face of her friend Alison Lou’s Loucite Earrings (which became the smash-hit hoop of the summer). Now Lou is teaming up with J. Crew for a new capsule collection we love. Featuring beaded hoops, layered charm necklaces, rainbow-hued rhinestone bracelets, and beaded cuffs, Alison Lou X J. Crew ranges from $39 to $78. Available at J. Crew stores nationwide and jcrew.com.
