The summer months descend on us like a blessing from heaven. Gone are the heavy coats and boots and in come the summer dresses, shorts and boat shoes. And what this also means is a lot more socializing with a lot more skin revealed - bringing gilt-edged opportunities to elevate one's casually expensive outfit with a little bit of dazzle. Good time then to go looking for a timely piece of jewelry to compliment one's hard earned tan!

On Wednesday, August 2 Kodner Galleries offers a host of breath-taking jewelry options when they stage their Fine Art, Antiques and Estate Jewelry sale. Enlightened designs featuring a stunning variety of stones will be up for grabs, meaning buyers at all price-points should find something to suit their fancy.
