Sometimes we end up wearing the same jewellery all the time when we can treat ourselves to the summer jewellery we really want and make our holiday outfits pop.

How to accessorise summer outfits?
If you haven't the foggiest about how to accessories summer outfits, at Tilley & Grace, we're here to help. From statement pieces to complementary colours, here is our 101 on how to accessorise summer outfits with our summer jewellery.
- Wear silver jewellery with light, cool tones like sky blue. With this colour palette, gold jewellery can be a little bit overpowering.
- Gold jewellery pairs better with bold, warm colours like reds and oranges, which would drown out silver jewellery.
- Use colourful jewellery to add a pop of colour to your outfit or create a statement piece.
- Use colour beads or gems to bring out complementary colours in your outfits. For example, if you're wearing a green dress with pink decoration, pair it with pink jewellery and accessories to draw out the pink colour.
- Most importantly, have fun! If you feel good in a piece of jewellery, roll with it!

Practical FAQs for travelling with your favourite jewellery
How to pack jewellery for a holiday?
Nothing is more frustrating than picking all your favourite jewellery to go on holiday only to find it all tangled or broken at the other end. A great way to keep your jewellery untangled and safe while travelling is to put your jewellery in a mini jewellery box. They are usually compact zipped boxes featuring compartments, hooks, pouches and slots for all your necklaces, earrings, and rings.
The separated compartments, neat pouches and slots allow you to transport your jewellery apart from each other so that it doesn't tangle. The robust enclosure will also keep your jewellery safe from harm.
These come in various colours and sizes to suit your taste and needs. But, they are usually smaller as you won't take all your jewellery on holiday, and to make it easier to fit in your suitcase. These boxes offer a lot of value for a reasonable price.
How do you store jewellery in a humid climate?
If you didn't know already humid climate can cause your jewellery to tarnish faster. So, protect your jewellery while you're on holiday by storing it correctly, especially if you're away for a long time. Here are our top tips on protecting your jewellery in humid climates.
- Keep your holiday jewellery in a cool, dry room. So don't leave it in the bathroom if you have taken it off for a shower.
- Use air conditioning or a dehumidifier when possible. If you have access to air conditioning or a dehumidifier in your room, this can help keep your jewellery from tarnishing due to the humidity.
- Use a ziplock bag and silica gel packets. If you can't escape the humidity, seal your jewellery in a zip lock bag with a silica gel packet. If you don't use the silica gel packets, you're potentially sealing in the moisture. Replace the silica packet regularly.
- Separate out your jewellery. You should be doing this at home already, but with the addition of humidity, separating your jewellery is even more crucial to prevent tarnishing. Mixing metals will cause jewellery to tarnish faster.
