Gold Rush

I haven't always been a fan of gold jewelry, but for the past couple of summers, nothing makes me sparkle like gold! A delicate gold necklace can complement a summery sun-dress or add a feminine touch to a simple white tank. I especially like the popular, lady-like layered look because it exemplifies effortless chic.

For us BGs, this bold and precious metal just looks good against our naturally bronzed skin.

Do you prefer to wear gold jewelry more during the warmer months or am I the only crazy one!?

I tend to wear gold all year round. I just switch up the pieces to change up my look.
I do want to have a nice pair of earrings made and with this post I may get a matching chain.

no ma'am you're not crazy...gold definitely DOES sparkle more in the warmth. maybe its the sun beams bouncing off of it cuz gold seems to be everywhere when its hot (i.e. bronzer, sparkles in the tanning lotions or regular lotions) flecks or pieces of gold do look fab!! i'm not a HUGE fan of it, but i too will wear it when i feel moved...or when the outfit calls for it

I'm not a HUGE gold fan either however when I do wear it I LOVE it... It definitely compliments a simple top/tank- it helps to add a touch of class.

Kwana said...

I wear lots of white gold but sometimes only gold-gold will do! Love it.

Tiffany Notes Round Pendant on 18 inch Chain available at www.tiffanys.com for $1750 this is strong armed robbery. lol.

Gold seems to rule the world, maybe because it is the color of the sun. but for me it's the moon and silver.

that lisa k greece necklace is beautiful! im partial to silver jewelry. growing up, my mother would try to convince me that gold was better b/c it costs more and it's more regal. lately, i've come to incorporate it minimally b/c i dont want to wear silver jewelry when im wearing certain things, like brown...as for white gold, i'm with that!

Nope, you're not the only crazy one. I've noticed gold's come back and while I prefer silver, I do like gold periodically. I love the one with the turquoise. How cute is that?! I'll definitely be purchasing some gold real soon. Unfortunately, it won't be from Tiffany's. Then again if I ever get my stimulous check, I just might splurge!! ahahaha

That Gorjana necklace is so pretty. It is so delicate looking... I love it. I am a huge fan of gold jewelery and this just made me realize that I need to add a few necklaces to the jewelery box.

Very nice BGG!!

I don't have a preference when it comes to jewelry, as long as it matches my outfit. :)

I do, however, wear two gold rings that I never take off. A pinky ring on my right hand and a gold class ring on the ring finger, right next to it. (Sounds kind of tacky, but they're both dainty and cute.)

Even through the big silver phase (late 90s, early 2000, I think), I still rocked my gold rings.

I'm glad gold is back though because I'm in love with oversized hoops!!!

Are we sisters? I've never been a fan of gold either. Definitely a silver/cosmetic jewelry wearer. But I agree that it makes brown skin look gorgeous! Maybe I should get a 14K necklace just for the sake of the summer.

I have one really nice gold necklace but I don't wear it often because I don't have any other gold pieces to go with it. Ummm maybe I need to ask for some gold earings and bangles for whatever the next holiday is...

@ Product Junkie Diva - I love a great pair of gold earrings! Get your matching chain! :-)

@ PCD - Yes, it's the sun that beams on it that makes it so great in the summer!! You're right some outfits just require gold!

@ Wes - Definitely adds a touch of class.

@Kwana - I love white gold too!!

@Don - I agree with you 100% but is sure is pretty! LOL

@MimiEyes - I love silver too, but try a bit of gold. You just might be surprised.

@KittyVodka - Simple elegance! I like it.

@Miss_Mika - Thanks! I'm glad I inspired you to get some more pieces. :-)

@T - You're the first to say they don't have a preference. I guess if the outfit calls for it, go with it! I can't tell you how much i LOVE gold hoops!! They're my absolute fave.

@ DivineBlackness - Yes we are sisters - blog sisters!! We agree on so many things! :-)

@Ms. Erika - Definitely get some gold hoops!

I LOVE yellow gold. I think it is so pretty against brown skin. I have never been on the silver/white gold/platinum bandwagon. You highlighted some great pieces. Thanks!

I'm not a fan of gold necklaces but that Tiffanys one looks fab.

Afrodite said...

Funny thing is, I used to not like gold jewelry but as I'm getting older I'm getting into it.

i only wear gold and i wear it year round - i just prefer it with my skin tone over silver. i think some people think gold can be gawdy but if you keep it simple it dresses up the simplest outfit and looks elegant with a LBD.
