While it may be taking its time getting here, and the jackets and sweaters aren't yet packed away for good, summer is just around the corner. Besides that uber fashionable new swimwear you've purchased, remember to complete any summer look with accessories.

Here are some of our favourite picks that will get you feeling the season while on the shoreline with your friends and family this summer.
From our Pura Vida Resort collection: The sky blue, champage and ivory colour combination was inspried by the beach culture in Costa Rica. From the waves to the soft sand, life is lived simply and to the fullest. Below, Devon is wearing our 'Noah' cocktail ring and 'Cielo Azul' feather & Swarovski earrings. This is a great look with a neutral tank and acid wash denims.

From the Yacht | Resort Collection: Inpired by the life of ocean dewellers, brilliant whites with burst of red, indigo blues and sunflower yellow. From our 'Sail Up' four style necklace to layering bracelets for an arm party...wear these playful jewels with a anything that matches...like a white and navy stripped dress or an anchored pattern fabric or better yet sandles.
Another colour combination that we adore from our Yacht | Resort Collection is the white and champage one. The perfect soft tones suitable for summer. Below are 'Castway's Paradise'and 'The Weekender' shell earrings. Wear this combination with neutral tones...from camel to mocha or be bold and thrown on some pattern on top of pattern.

Sometimes it's not easy being green, but if you're the colour of May's birthstone, the Enticing Emerald, then it's a relative breeze!
If your birthday falls in April then your birthstone is the durable Diamond!
Dating back billions of years, diamonds are the hardest substance on the globe, and are four times harder than corundum (sapphires and rubies). Known as the "rich cousins" of graphite, both are crystalline forms of pure carbon. They way diamonds' carbon atoms are bonded together however, makes it so tough versus the relative softness of graphite (used as "lead" in pencils).
Twice a year David Pecaut Square comes alive with the sounds of fashionistas strutting in style. The occasion is World MasterCard Fashion week and fashion lovers from across the globe come together to celebrate Canadian design. It is a wonderful platform for Canadian fashion designers to display their art and share it with the world.
Each year attendees get a chance to experience the art of fashion and are exposed to the marvellous creations of designers that make Canada proud. This year was no different and guests were blown away by the quality and sheer genius of these creative masterminds. While we loved everyone's work, here is a list of our favourites that you can effortlessly style with 3Shahs jewellery.
Owning a little black dress is a timeless fashion tradition. A staple in every fashionistas wardrobe, it is one accessory that every style icon has cherished with all their heart.
Tatsuaki, an award winning Canadian designer, describes his creations as chic yet elegant and the above pictured dress is testament to that. You can style it with the "Celestial Goddess" earrings from 3Shahs' "Black Tie" collection and channel your inner goddess or a Margaret Thatcher inspired "Iron Lady" cocktail bling ring (below) for a night out on the town.
Stephan Caras is a name synonymous with elegance and femininity. Hailed as one of the top 25 most beloved and inspiring fashion designers of the world, Stephan Caras' runway shows never cease to wow audiences. This year with model and singer Renee Thompson sashaying down the runway in his glamorous creation was a vision to behold.
Renee rocked the runway in a sizzling red dress that can be effortlessly styled with a "Foxtrot Frenzy" bracelet from 3Shahs' Black Tie collection.
Delicate and graceful, the above pictured dress is fit for a goddess. Designed by Narces, a Toronto based fashion brand run by Nikki Wirthensohn, this dress is versatile enough to be worn for an elegant evening affair or by a blushing bride. Style it with a sophisticated "Pearl-ternally Yours" necklace or a "Midnight Chandelier" necklace and get ready to be the belle of the ball. Statement necklaces are like that little Tatsuaki black dress; watch our helpful video on statement necklace tips on 3shahsTV.
We also LOVE checking out and getting to know attendees from all walks of life and corners of the globe at World MasterCard Fashion week. Such diverse, colourful, textured and fun styles. For photos of our new fashion-forward friends check out our album here.
3Shahs and team had an amazing time soaking in all the fashion that Toronto has to offer. We will see you again at the tents in October. Till then, adios and stay fabulous!
