We are worshippers of gold! It lends a warmth and glow to our skins, creates a vintage effect and is fashion-forward. Gold jewellery has become quite trendy in recent years and judging by the number of celebrities wearing it on the red carpet of the Oscars this year, we are sure yellow gold is set to become a colossal hit in 2014! If you are one of those who would still rather stick to silver, white gold or platinum, we urge you to visit LoveGold on Instagram (#lovegoldlive), a newly established initiative that scours the world for the most beautiful gold jewellery or the numerous boards dedicated to gold jewellery on Pinterest. You just might get swayed!
Have you always been told that yellow or rose gold suits only warm and neutral skin tones? Now is the time to debunk that as myth, because you could do a Mary Kate and mix metals! Wearing a turquoise blazer and clutch, she boldly layered a white gold Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas watch on top of a yellow gold one; perfectly accentuating the striking colour of her outfit. If the chunky look is a little too daring for you, try stacking thin bracelets and rings for an easy, casual look.
Always trying to beat the morning rush and have no time to accessorize? We have a fuss-free, fool-proof approach to looking chic! Just pop on one or two statement-making gold pieces to a basic outfit and look polished, instantaneously!
We were pleasantly surprised to see Lupita Nyong'o's quirky choice of gold jewellery on the red carpet this year. Her gold and diamond headband, spiked rose-cut diamonds earrings and mix of antique rings and gold serpent bracelet were a perfect blend of girlishness, edge and nostalgia. Jamie King's earrings were also a crowd favourite, making a huge statement with their diminutive size. To sum it up, dainty gold pieces work just as well with evening looks!
For casual saturdays, complete your day look with a cute pair of gold earrings or a single chain of links.
And just one more tip before we end this post, wear costume and genuine jewellery together confidently! Style icons such as Coco Chanel and Jackie O did it and you can too! Have fun!
