Gold Standard

As hard as I try to wear more silver jewelry, my favorite everyday pieces are in yellow gold and I pop them on each morning without even thinking. My signature item is a simple bangle, a gift from my sister, which has become my personal talisman and rarely leaves my wrist.

  • I agree, there is nothing more beautiful that a simple gold statement piece such as a coiled or serpent bracelet or a striking gold ring, particularly in the context of black.

  • I tend to do the opposite going for more white gold rather than gold and I should do more of the latter because it makes for a bolder statement especially for the everyday..

  • I think we tend to gravitate toward what naturally suits our skin tones. I have some lovely silver pieces that rarely see the light of day because they look cold next to the peachy tone of my skin. My signature pieces are in yellow gold, and they just feel right.

  • I’m sitting here wearing the gold Aurelie Biedermann cuff that I bought through your Shop a couple years ago . . . I love the warmth of gold. I never white metals (other than my wedding set, which I would reset in yellow gold if I didn’t fear offending my husband!).

  • I love all of the accessories in this editorial. I want them all! I adore gold, but silver / platinum suits me much better 🙁 Too bad, because simple gold pieces have a more classic, elegant feel, I think.

  • For some reason, I tend to gravitate toward silver and white gold during the spring/summer and my gold jewelry during the fall and winter. I do love a simple gold bangle with a watch and gold hoops, always very elegant and timeless.

  • I’m exactly the same, I love gold more than silver, it adds such a chic and sophisticated touch !

  • My husband definitely would not appreciate me changing my engagement/wedding band in any way (although I was lucky to get a gorgeous new eternity band for our 20th anniversary!). Those rings I was given so many years ago hold sentimental value that can never be replaced and I will cherish them forever.
