Candy colors, charming symbols, and a playful more-is-more take on fashion is everywhere this summer. Getting dressed feels fun again and nothing adds a carefree touch to everything you wear like colorful beaded necklaces and bracelets. 

At Girl Up Collection, we’ve taken the trend to the next level by creating beaded bracelets and beaded necklaces with real gemstones and meaningful charms that can energize you and remind you of what matters most, while supporting the empowerment of girls around the world.

These easy-to-wear stretchy gemstone bracelet styles are designed to mix and layer. Choose moonstone for inspiration, amethyst for serenity, ruby for passion, or layer all three. Or stack aquamarine, emerald and crystal bead bracelets to celebrate the protection of earth’s water, land and air.

Pick the gems that express your style. Get inspired by Bella Hadid and mix amethyst, chalcedony, and moonstone beaded bracelets one day, easter egg pastel beads the day after, and carnelian and morganite the next.

Match the colors to your outfit like Emma Chamberlin. Or layer beads with your favorite chain links like Kesha does. Give matching bracelets to your friends like Sofia Richie. The friendship bracelet is now officially all
grown up.

And wrists aren’t the only ones flaunting layers of beads this summer. Beachy beaded necklaces appeared on runways from Jason Wu to Versace, making us dream of tropical vacations and fun in the sun. We especially love a rainbow of watermelon tourmaline beads to wear with everything.

 

These bright bead necklaces are the perfect way to add a pop of color to neutrals, just like Gigi Hadid. Or layer color on color on print like Emily Ratajkowski.

The beaded jewelry trend is bringing us right back to our childhoods and idyllic summer days at the beach or trading friendship bracelets at camp, and we’re loving it.

One thing’s for sure. With all the coolest girls on Instagram layering beads around necks and wrists, as InStyle has predicted, this trend will be everywhere in a matter of months.
