If you're anything like us, summer is one of your favourite seasons. Sea shells immediately remind us of beautiful summer days spent at the beach. That's why we're loving the new trend of incorporating sea shells into jewellery designs. It's the perfect way to bring those summer vibes to any outfit.
We've rounded up 5 Canadian shops that are integrating sea shells into their jewellery collections and we couldn't be happier about it!
Castellammare is an online jewellery boutique based in Ottawa, ON. They have a large selection of pieces at very affordable prices. They're on a mission to offer "delicate yet romantic" pieces and help you "wear your daydream". We love this mission and think they're doing a pretty great job of achieving it! These are two of our favourite sea shell pieces from Castellammare and at only $20 and $30, you really can't go wrong.
2. Kind Karma Co.
Kind Karma Co. is an online jewellery boutique based in Toronto, ON. They're an incredibly unique and amazing company because they're "a social enterprise that employs at-risk and transitioning homeless youth". How amazing is that?!
Not only are they on a mission to break the cycle of poverty, they create beautiful jewellery like these stunning sea shell necklaces from their new 'beached' collection.
3. Casa Lovina
Casa Lovina is an online lifestyle brand for beach bohemians and travel lovers based in Toronto, ON. They work closely with artisans in Bali to bring you high quality and handcrafted unique pieces. Browsing their online shop (turn your sound on!) or Instagram account might just inspire you to book your next beach vacation. Be forewarned ;)
We love this sterling silver ring featuring a cowrie shell from their Bali sea shell collection.
4. Peony and Peridot
Peony and Peridot is an online jewellery boutique located in the beautiful little lake town of Red Lake, ON. Their main focus is to "provide consumers with unique, chic and classic jewelry without the hefty price tag". The majority of their pieces range between $10 - $30.
We love their shell inspired 'Lakemaid Locket' that comes in silver or gold and can hold your favourite picture inside.
5. Klas Squared
Klas Squared is an online modern fashion jewellery line based in London, ON. The mother-daughter team behind Klas Squared creates elegant and contemporary pieces that combine femininity and power. They use a mix of Swarovski crystals, pearls, sterling silver, 14K gold filled and semiprecious stones in their designs.
We love their cream pearl necklace featuring sterling silver sea shell charms.
We hope this guide helped you find a new piece of sea shell jewellery that adds that perfect summer vibe to your wardrobe. Now it's time for the beach!
