These are the trendy (yet timeless) gold jewellery you should be wearing right now
Old is gold
Gold jewellery has been trending this season with style influencers like Jiawa Liu, Yoyo Cao and Camille Charriere adorning them this summer. But, that’s not the real reason why we’re obsessed with gold accessories. We’re falling head over heels with them because of how timeless and versatile they are – which means you can pair it with everything in your closet.
From Alighieri’s poem-inspired delicate accouterments to Cartier’s classics, here, we show you our top gold adornments picks that’ll make you want to keep them on forever.
1. 18k yellow gold Love earrings, $2,400, Cartier.
Part of the French maison’s Love collection, these hoops are perfect for those who’d love understated jewellery. Either wear it with a skirt-suit for work, or with a t-shirt and a pair of denim jeans for the weekends.
Exclusive to Net-a-Porter, this anklet is part of a capsule collection that celebrates Isabel Marant’s 25-year anniversary. Rock this gorgeous piece out to the beach on the weekends by matching it with a mini sundress and a pair of sandals.
3. Alighieri The Cryptic Dancer gold-plated earrings, US$195.90 (S$268.54), www.net-a-porter.com.
For those who’re into something that’s unrefined yet elegant, this pair of Alighieri’s earrings is made for you. Its raw and “unfinished” aesthetic is done using a lost-wax casting process so as to ensure that its ripples and folds are blatantly displayed. Let this pair of babies stand out by dressing it with an alabaster number.
Fendi refashions this cuff with a iconic double F logo and a rock ‘n’ roll edge by introducing contemporary curves and embellishing it with crystals. Let this gorgeous piece elevate your monochromatic ensemble, or a neutral coloured (we’re thinking beige) two-piece pant suit.
Not everyone would appreciate an ostentatious necklace. However, many would if its delicate. We like this Monica Vinader gold chain necklace because of its simple and minimalistic design. Let this piece adorn your decolletage by matching it with a loosely buttoned shirt, or a V-neck top.
Hair accessories are all the rage this season. If you’re not into a thick piece of gold sitting on your hair because you think it may look too daudy, here’s what we’d recommend: stylish, pearl-embellished pieces that has a fair mix of old-school and contemporary.
We’re obsessed with how Tiffany has used its initials and fashioning it into a contemporary jewellery collection. Coining the line as Tiffany T, juxtapose its clean and sharp angles with garbs sporting a looser or flowy silhouette.
8. Gold-plated pendant chain necklace, $55.90, Mango.
Shaped to mimic vintage coin necklaces, this Mango accouterment is understated, yet sophisticated at the same time. Contrast this sleek piece by layering it with hardware-inspired jewellery to elicit an off-kilter look.
