Allow me to present the best of the best.

This season we're seeing seashell accessories take hold of the jewelry world, but I want to remind everyone not to forget about this other micro trend: rainbow jewelry. It's previously popped up on the spring 2015 runways, and brands like Roxanne Assoulin has built a loyal following with its colorful necklaces and bracelets. Rainbow jewelry is one of the easiest ways to brighten up your summer outfits, and it comes in all shapes and sizes. (I personally love slipping on a dainty multi-colored gemstone ring or bracelet.) There's a certain charm and elegance to these pieces, so don't save them for "special occasions"—wear them every day. Ahead, I found 16 cheerful and wearable rainbow accessories to go with your outfits seven days a week.

For Every Season
Multicolor Stone Bracelet
Aqua bloomingdales.com

If there's one piece of jewelry I wear every day, it's a silver bracelet. This option from Aqua is so thin, the chain looks nearly invisible. The brightly-colored stones, however, won't go unnoticed. If you're looking for a gift for someone special this spring (ahem, Mother's Day), present them this bracelet.

For a Black-Tie Event
Petite Candy Hoop Earrings

Most French brands are known for being low-key and subtle, think Sézane or Rouje, but Sylvia Toledano is known for her dazzling oversized jewelry collections that were inspired by her childhood in Africa. These hoops instantly transport you to the faraway destination with its colorful pieces of red and yellow onyx, amethyst, turquoise, and carnelian.

For Lazy Summer Days
Jade Colorful Stones Necklace

You already love NYC-based brand Dannijo for its rainbow slip dresses, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that their jewelry collection is just as fun. This necklace in particular was inspired by "sunny, happy days at the beach," and it shows. The turquoise and resin beads look like they were discovered on the sandy shores of the Caribbean.
