Essential Summer Jewelry to Pack for Your Tropical Getaway

Your beach vacation won’t happen on the beach only. There will probably be shopping, day trips, and dinner in fancy restaurants. The best travel jewelry is the versatile option that can seamlessly transition from a beachside gathering to an evening cocktail.


Going on a tropical adventure soon? Here are some versatile jewelry options you should add to your luggage.

Petit Earrings

Your simple, everyday earring will come in handy for your beach getaway. It could be of any metal like gold, silver, or even a gemstone. Depending on the activities you have planned for your trip, you might not even bother packing another pair of earrings. So look through your jewelry box and pick up your simple, lightweight studs or mini earrings.

Layered Necklaces

Tropical getaways are all about embracing carefree vibes. Capture that vibe by packing two or three necklaces of varying lengths that you can layer. Let them peek out from the neckline of a swimsuit, or add a touch of Bohemian to your sundress. Planning a dinner with a simple look? Keep one of the delicate necklaces and pair them with a long or short dress for elegance.


Swap out your traditional hoops for dangling earrings or oversized hoop earrings with motifs such as palm leaves or exotic fruits for a tropical vibe. These statement earrings will effortlessly transition from day to night, adding glamour to your outfit. You can style them with your swimsuit and cover-up for a chic beachside look, jeans and tee for local market runs, or a dress for a brunch date.

The Statement Pearl Jewelry Set

Pearls are a vacation essential; they are fun, cool, and sophisticated. But don’t go for the one-strand pearl necklace – a statement pearl jewelry set is what you need. You can pack a set featuring a pendant necklace and stud earrings, or a choker-and-earring combo. Both options can be paired with endless outfits: a flowy maxi dress with sandals, a jumpsuit with mules, or a little black dress with high heels.

Stackable Bracelets

Nothing says beach ready than a wrist full of stacked bracelets. Pack a collection of stackable bracelets for a fun and playful addition to your outfit. Think woven or beaded bracelets in vibrant hues, gold bangles with a hard-to-miss sheen, or seashell-inspired pieces that complement your destination. Your stacked bracelets will complement your cute sundress or kaftan and capture the laid-back yet polished vibe of a tropical vacation. For other outings, you can keep things simple by wearing one or two of your stackable bracelets.

Cocktail Rings

Every outfit requires a bit of drama, and that’s where your cocktail rings come in. Pack a bold cocktail ring in a vibrant gemstone or an eye-catching design to add instant personality to your beach outfit. Cocktail rings are also very versatile; they will look great on your romper, flowy dress, and cocktail dress if you are feeling fancy for dinner. A style tip for rocking your statement ring is to keep the rest of your accessories minimal.

Bonus: Tropical-inspired Anklets

An anklet adorned with charms like seashells or starfish? Yes! These adornments will perfectly complement your sun-kissed skin and sandy toes as you walk the shores of the beach.


With these jewelry options, you can create many stylish looks that will take you from the beach to dinner and everywhere in between. Now get packing, and tell us which jewelry will you be adding to your suitcase?
