Gold Jewelry

I’ve been so obsessed with gold jewelry lately. I used to strictly only wear silver or platinum but now the majority of the jewelry I wear is gold. I saw this Vogue spread which made me love gold even more and inspired me to pile it on in gobs.

And of course my new favorite jewelry to buy is from J. Crew and am currently loving these two…


As well as these pieces, how fun is that ring? I want to get it just so I can see it on!


A fab alternative to gold is brass which is what Marika King uses on these pieces. I just love her designs, so pretty and unique!

I’m wondering, is it just me or have more of you transitioned to gold jewelry too?

    I've been into gold jewelry too for a long time. Nothing but Junk Gold though…Forever 21 usually does it for me.

    I find the same thing is happening to me. I love platinum or silver jewelry, but I keep gravitating to gold myslef.

    These pieces are beautiful!

    Gold Jewelry is my fav! My boyfriend bought me a very nice silver watch for my college graduation and I had been very hesitant to wear it with all my gold jewelry, but now I just mix it all together- it looks great!

    I'm wearing gold a ton now too! Which is great because a few years ago that was all I wore so I finally get to use some of those pieces again.

    I love gold jewelry. It adds sparkle and elegance to an otherwise drab outfit. I have quite a few pieces but they're simple and I don't get wear them more often. Maybe it's time to take them out from the small jewelry box.:)

    I am the same way! I used to only wear silver but over the last four/five years I find myself wearing more gold than anything.

    I'm so glad you posted about JCrew! I love their stuff, I purchased a gold chunky link bracelet from them and I get compliments on it all the time!

    I used to be all about cool silver, but now the warmth of gold is what attracts me. Those picks look gorgeous!

    yes! yes! yes! I love the look of gold. it looks amazing against tanned and pale skin. it looks fabulous and so rich with so many different looks. I've busted out all my gold in the last 6 months amazing.

    Gold jewelry is my favorite too. But i combine it with diamonds, as diamonds are girls best friend, and i always suggest every one to go for carefully while shopping.

    I've noticed from designing jewellery and selling worldwide, that buyers in the US generally favour gold whereas in Australia, it's still just silver, silver, silver. I have rarely sold anything in silver to the US in the last couple of years and don't often sell anything in gold here in Australia! But I generally offer both 🙂 Thanks for the shout out x

    I am definitely loving gold jewelery- to the point where I almost wish my wedding rings were in gold. Almost. It just looks so much better on my skin, I feel- 99.99% of my jewelery is gold toned!

    Oh and btw, it's not just you. Everyone has got gold fever right now. Plus, it's worth the most it's ever been worth since 1980.

    Holy moley, those Vogue spreads are stunning! I'm so with you – I used to be exclusively silver, but for the psat 6 months or so I've been mostly gold. Now I'm trying to venture into the world of mixed metals (eek) but going about it pretty slowly!
