After months of crazy weather (flooding in LA—okaaaay?), too much holiday hustle and bustle, and just the business of life in general, we can’t wait to escape for spring break.

Our helpful how-to guide gives you a list of the top spring break hot spots and the haute jewelry your travel bag can’t do without.
Palm Springs ✈︎
The epicenter of Hollywood-cool in the 1950s and 1960s, Palm Springs remains an essential destination for the fashionable crowd and fans of ultra-modern hotels and eateries. But it’s the desert landscape that gets the most attention, as steep and jagged mountain vistas create an extraordinary backdrop for the nostalgic charm of the mid-century modern architecture. Day or night, Palm Springs is a visual delight. For this reason, when it comes to your accessory story, an ornate and unique mix of metals and southwest hues will play up the drama of the incredible views.
With beach season being 365 days a year, Maui is the ultimate setting for anyone who prefers a jaw-dropping coastline to go along with their peace and quiet. Azure waters, green mountains, white sands—there’s no end to the color parade of this island paradise. So while ocean-inspired accessories are a given, what makes for a more elevated impression are bits of glam paired with gemstones and art in hues that match the tropical scenery.
Chalets, sleigh rides, and world-class skiing make Aspen the go-to for snowy adventure seekers. But when the stars come out, the glitz, ritz, and champagne are never-ending. Here, the powder crowd isn’t shy about putting on a lavish show. Which means when it comes to accessories, the brighter and bolder, the better.
A bohemian paradise of beach-themed exploits, spiritual awakenings, and perfectly executed ambiance, Tulum is the premier setting for mindful experiences. The Caribbean waters are thought to have magical properties that bring good luck and many blessings. Surrounded by lush jungles, secret swimming holes, and towering ruins, the mood is as blissful as it is indulgent. Color, artistic inspirations, and positive energy abound, making your accessory choices an exploration of all things rare and exceptional.
It’s a secret the locals know and seldom share: Springtime is the best time to visit this lauded NorCal region. The crowds have yet to arrive, the weather is cool enough for hiking and biking, and the winery staff has time to chat at length about their favorite new finds. Relaxed yet refined, Napa’s rolling hills and sunny skies make it the jewel that centers the crown of California. Which suggests that the jewelry that matches the scenery best should be vintage-inspired and a bit romantic.
