Summer Sparkle: Ring Ritratto at Pomellato, $4,480
Why We’re Craving It: Pretty in pink, the Pomellato Ring Ritratto is the perfect blushing beauty to match your favorite watermelon cooler. Delish’s watermelon slushies are packed with saccharine goodness and embellished with flavorful Sour Patch candies and a rim of glistening sugar.

Summer Sparkle: Rainbow Rings at Fendi, $400
Why We’re Craving It: This simple and fun lemonade recipe packs quite a punch with every layer. Frozen mango, lemonade, and vodka make a drink fit for Beyoncé, keeping things chill on sweltering summer days. While the layered lemonade is the perfect statement for a backyard party with friends, the coordinating Fendi ring can be worn anywhere. The multihued band beams with a similar palette of orange, peach, and black. The wavy layers and altering sizes add dimension fit for only the boldest personalities (and beverages). Stack these stunners or wear them independently as a versatile accessory for the season.

Summer Sparkle: High Jewelry Tutti Frutti Necklace at Cartier; Price available upon request.
Why We’re Craving It: The Little Epicurean is one of our favorite new spots to search for must-have cocktails and food recipes. Maryanne, LA-based food and drink blogger, created a cocktail that we’d like to call “summer in a glass.” Her Blackberry Pineapple Rum concoction is perfect for the South Floridian who thrives on sunshine and pineapple juice. The magenta-colored creation, made from Grand Marnier and dark rum, fits the color profile of Cartier’s swoon-worthy Tutti Frutti high jewelry necklace. A bit of a show-stopping splurge, the elegant accessory is made from our favorite ingredients: rubies, sapphires, emeralds and a splash of diamonds.
Libation Inspiration: Cinque Terre (Photo and Recipe via FoodAndWine.com)
Summer Sparkle: Gisele Pierced Earring Jackets at Swarovski, $99
Why We’re Craving It: Named after a picturesque cluster of five prismatic villages set atop a breathtaking cliff in Northern Italy, the Cinque Terre cocktail brings foreign fascination to the Miami shore. Effervescent prosecco, chartreuse, and zesty citrus combine to make an Italian fusion of enticement. The fizzy-fruity combination reminds us of the Italian Riviera’s vivid coastline and Miami’s lush tropics. Swarovski’s Gisele Pierced Earring Jackets is bedecked with rich fuchsia and green stones that pair beautifully with the Cinque Terre cocktail. Whether in Italy or your own backyard, these opulent earrings carry a taste of the tropics.

Summer Sparkle: Deep Eyes Bracelet at Uno de 50, $179
Why We’re Craving It:
Mom bloggers know how to live on the wild side, just ask Carrie Beth and Jen of Savvy Sassy Moms and The Magnolia Mamas. The two women have mastered mixology, and their champagne margaritas are just as tasty as they are beautiful. Whether flipping through Ocean Drive magazine on your Brickell balcony or hosting a poolside fete, the champagne margarita is a chic favorite to elevate your festivities and palate. Uno de 50’s ‘Deep Eyes’ bracelet reminds us of the cocktail’s signature lime garnish. The sterling silver jewelry brand also carries Spanish heritage, handcrafted in Spain. The verdant Swarovski Elements crystal has us dreaming of salted rims, South Beach salsa nights, and exotic palm trees.
