Spring has sprung, and with it come warmer days, celebrations and more time outdoors. Orange is the day-to-night color that adds pop and personality to any look.

1. Made of gold and coral, these midsize hoops by Viv & Ingrid—a domestic brand that’s decades old and owned by women—are as graceful as they are fanciful. Pair them with a crisp white tee, floral print or classic stripe.

2. Simple, subtle, casual bling is a spring-forward must. Gorjana’s power gemstone bracelet is made of citrine, which is said to create “abundance” (other bracelets from the California brand promise clarity, balance, strength and more). Sizing is easily adjustable, and for a mellow layered look, the strands can be grouped with other Gorjana bracelets.
