My obsession with gold jewelry is by no means a well kept secret… In fact, beyond the occasional pair of colored statement earrings, you’d be hard pressed to catch me in anything else. While I do love the look of mixed metals on others, for me, all gold is timelessly classic and infinitely classy. A lot of my wonderful readers have commented on the jewelry that I wear on the regular – pretty much daily – and I feel like it’s high time I shared my not-so-secret stash with you. My ultimate faves are my two necklaces from Lucy Williams’ first collection with Missoma – a mini fang necklace and a longer horn necklace – which I wear layered, and my two Cartier love bangles, which, again, I layer.
When layering necklaces, I’d recommend going for one 16-inch chain or shorter paired with one 18-inches long. But of course there really are no rules – the best way to find your own look it to experiment and try on until you find the right balance for you. And when it comes to gold earrings, this is where you can really have some fun – I’m obsessed with using them to accessorise and completely transform a whole outfit, they make for the ultimate glam.
I know that the idea of gold jewelry can sound almost intimidating because it’s easy to assume that it will always be the costly option, but today there are so many options available, and they really do range from seriously inexpensive to lifelong investments. You can have beautiful gold jewelry on any budget. So, below I’ve pulled together some of my current fave pieces for you, suitable for a range of budgets, for you to peruse and shop. Happy shopping!
