Nothing says fun better than neon jewelry. So grab your shades this season as high-voltage neon colors and eye-popping brights are making hot style statements in jewelry, accessories and more. This feel-good trend, reminiscent of the '80s, infuses fun and cheerfulness to any look and warms up any wardrobe. Here are some tips, suggested products and inspirational design ideas for incorporating one or more, or many neon bright colors into your summer jewelry lines.

One Neon Bright Color

Design Idea 88KL Necklace Make a stand-out color statement with bright turquoise, fuchsia, yellow, orange or lime green. Designers are bringing these shockingly brilliant hues to one key jewelry item, such as a chunky necklace, dangly earrings, bracelet cuff or bangle. These colors take center stage and pop perfectly from the piece when combined with sterling silver or silver-plated chain or wire. Pick your favorite neon bright and put your own design twist on this sought-after trend with a wide selection of beads and components.

One or More Neon Bright Colors

Design Idea A63U Necklace Neon brights are also seen as attention-getting accents in jewelry, such as bib-style necklaces and chandelier-style earrings, where the bright color is grounded with metallic or neutral tones. Other ideas for incorporating this trend into designs include color blocking two or more neon colors, such as bright orange, lime and turquoise, and keeping the colors clearly separated within the design (think bold stripes). Or create a tone-on-tone color statement by fading a neon bright into a softer hue of the same color in the same piece, such as bright fuchsia to soft pink.

Many Neon Bright Colors

Design Idea 736T Earrings Paint your jewelry lines neon by mixing and matching many colors to create over-the-top pieces. The brighter the better as consumers turn to jewelry for a pop of neon this season. Combine multiple neon-colored pieces together, such as bangles or individual chains, or use different neon colors in the same design, such as drops or charms on a bracelet. In addition to brightly-colored beads, drops and charms, find brightly-colored stringing material, chain and components to complete jewelry lines.
