Good Question: What's the Best Bling for the Beach?
May 11, 2007
Baring your bikini doesnâ€™t mean you have to go completely minimal. More and more sunbathing beauties are giving their beach look a touch of glamour by sporting jewelry with their seaside wear, especially while on vacation. So whatâ€™s the best way to bring on the beach bling? For starters, leave your small and precious pieces at home rather than risk having them become bits of beach glass after sliding off of your oiled up skin. Instead, go with jewelry that is bold and big enough to be found easily should it slide into the sand. Pearl, coral, and shell jewelry are all easy choices for the beach, as are gemstones in cool blues and greens. Mix them with some gold for extra shine, but forego wearing anything made of silver. Salt water will oxidize this metal, turning it a dull gray.
