6 Fine Jewelry Pieces Under $500 to Spice Up Your Summer Wardrobe

Not just another vintage piece from eras past, pearls can be a playful addition to any summer outfit. Keep reading for 6 Galatea jewelry pieces to update your summer wardrobe with this year.

6 Fine Jewelry Pieces Under $500 to Spice Up Your Summer Wardrobe | Medawar Jewelers

Pearl, the June birthstone, is known for being the only gemstone made by living animals. The translucent shine and perfectly round shape of the highest-quality pearls make them sought-after for luxury jewelry pieces.

Real pearls are also known for staying cool to the touch, no matter the weather. So, make pearl jewelry your first choice when you reach for an accessory to dress up your outfit in the upcoming summer months!

At Medawar Jewelers, we offer alluring pearl jewelry pieces by specialty designer Galatea. Chi Huynh, the creative mastermind behind the brand, specializes in turning pearls and other natural gemstones into wearable modern masterpieces. Along with the multiple US patents he holds for his work, Huynh has also won many awards for his innovative pearl jewelry designs.

Almost all of his pearlwork features designs carved directly into the pearl itself, giving the stone contours that catch the light in unusual ways -- work you won’t find from any other designer.

Read on for 6 effortlessly chic pearl jewelry pieces from Galatea to pair with any summer outfit. (Did we mention that each one is under $500?)

Pearls add a touch of old world class to any outfit. Layering necklaces with simple pearl pendants give your outfit an extra touch of glamour and contemporary flair, without overdoing it.

This classy necklace with its intertwining metal lines and white freshwater pearl pendant evokes captivating femininity, while Galatea’s black pearl pendant with floral accents combine the beauty of the sea with that of nature for a unique accessory you can wear anywhere. These aren’t your mother’s pearls, that’s for sure!

Summertime is perfect for beach bonfires and laying out on the sand with a good book. But for those days when commitments call you away from the ocean, bring out your inner mermaid with these gorgeous Galatea pearl earrings.

These nature-inspired drop earrings will add just the right amount of elegance to a Sunday brunch outfit with your closest friends. Meanwhile, these Queen Bead Convertible earrings will add some personality to an everyday work outfit.

Even though pearls are great to dress up any outfit you throw on, sometimes you just want a casual piece to wear with anything, anywhere.

Enter these two playful pearl bracelets by Galatea. This leather-and-pearl bracelet with a sterling silver clasp is the ultimate indulgence in dressed-down styling. This sterling silver creation, featuring inky Tahitian pearls, is perfect for the woman who can’t seem to shake her adoration for childhood charm bracelets. Their laidback, beachy designs are sure to make them your favorite jewelry pieces for everyday wear.
