Gold Jewelry Galore – TRENDSPORT :: SRQ Magazine article by Britt Mattie and Madison Mursch

Silver is gone, now gold has its time to shine

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But let’s not forget the timeless classic metals. Although silver tends to reign supreme as the ubiquitous and everyday go-to metal, gold has always been a complementary accessory to adorn extremities. That family heirloom necklace or costume bracelet gathering dust in your jewelry box isn’t just for wedding bands anymore. Lately, designers are leaning more towards gold metal to broaden the look with a certain simplicity that appeals to women of all ages and styles. Basic and dainty gold chains and charmed pieces are worn more as a wearable yet refined element of understated glamor to elevate a look or outfit, whether the wearer is heading to the office, the market or the downtown bar. With affordable and fashionable gold making its way onto boutique shelves, the perceived prestige and pretentious shine of yesteryear is a thing of the past. Consider dropping your silver clasps to dress up your wrist with warm, bold hoops or your neck with the classic honey-colored chain.
