No one wants to wear layers of clothing in the summer, which can make it difficult to build an ensemble that feels finished – accessorized, full of personality and true to your personal style. Jackets, scarves, even a too-large leather handbag can seem oppressive in the midst of a heat wave, so a style-savvy woman has only one place to turn in the middle of July: jewelry. Jewelry, especially that of the Christie’s Summer Jewels Online Auction, will never let you down.

Christie’s has been expanding its online-only auction offerings lately, and this is the storied auction house’s first ever online-only jewelry sale. It includes over 100 lots, featuring jewelry from many contemporary designers like Marina Bulgari’s line, Marina B, Lily Gabriella Elia and Roberto Coin. The jewels range from everyday wearable to special-occasion fantastic, and the price points are similarly varied. Whether you’re looking for a little something to brighten up an ensemble to attend a summer wedding or a big something to…well, to wear to your summer wedding, Christie’s Summer Jewels Auction has plenty to tempt you. Start looking now, though – the auction ends Friday, July 26. Below, check out some of our favorite pieces from Christie’s or check out the full auction now!
