The summer is upon us and accessorising is bigger and better than ever, with the catwalks bursting with an eclectic mix of chunky statement pieces and classic jewellery that’ll never go out of fashion. And, with weddings, al fresco dinner parties and even festivals filling up our summer schedules, there’s never been a better reason to add a personal touch to your outfits with stunning jewellery and watches.

So, if you’re thinking of making an accessory purchase this month but need some inspiration, look no further. The team here at Ramsdens Jewellery have rounded up their top five jewellery and watch picks for August so you can shine all summer long.

1. 9ct Yellow Gold 0.25ct Diamond Solitaire Ring

No jewellery collection is complete without a dazzling solitaire diamond ring, and we are especially loving this one. The 9ct yellow gold band adds to the traditionality and timelessness of the piece, while the brilliantly cut 0.25ct diamond is held in place with a claw setting that optimises the amount of light that can enter the stone — so your diamond can shine even brighter in the August sun!

While this versatile accessory can be worn daily as a promise or eternity ring, or even just to complete your aesthetic, it will also be a fantastic choice for an engagement ring that will stun your partner. If you or a loved one has an April birthday, a diamond should be your first port of call when browsing jewellery, and we can’t think of a more beautiful and sentimental gift than this one.

2. Rolex Pre-Owned Watch GMT-Master II

As one of the most highly coveted watch brands in the world, Rolex needs no introduction. Renowned for being a cosmopolitan professional watch, the GMT-Master II was originally designed for pilots and has since become the watch of choice for many busy travelling businessmen who need to keep an eye on two intercontinental times at once.

The outer of the watch is manufactured from an extremely hardy stainless steel, meaning it’ll stand up to the daily hustle and bustle of life. In fact, its specialist Oyster casing is one of the most recognisable aspects of a Rolex watch and offers maximum shock-resistance as well as being waterproof. And, as it’s fitted onto a five-link Jubilee bracelet, you can rest assured that you’ll look and feel great when you wear it.

Need convincing further? So much innovation went into creating this model that over 10 patent applications were made during its development, with the unique self-winding movement and cyclops lens standing testament to this.

Style them on their own or make the most of Bardot neckline by pairing these with a stunning diamond necklace that will glisten in the summer sunshine.

4. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Watch

As part of a collection that’s renowned for exceptional watchmaking, innovative design and state-of-the-art materials, you can guarantee that this Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch will be the perfect investment this summer.

If you’re looking to make a statement during the sunny season, look no further. This Omega watch isn’t just a watch collector’s dream, but the bright orange tones on the bezel are a beautiful contrast against the sophisticated black dial and anti-bacterial rubber strap.

As these watches were designed for divers, you’ll even benefit from the illuminating indexes which emit blue light, while the minute hand and dot on the bezel glow green: both of which will keep you on time even when the darker morning and nights set in. Plus, with a master chronometer that has been through 8 intense tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, you can be sure your watch is up to any challenge.
