I'm definitely a gold girl. On a daily basis, I don't feel pulled together without a pair of earrings, a bracelet, and my long pocket watch necklace. And while I have amassed quite the collection of statement earrings for evenings out, I usually just pick from a handful of gold basics. I swear it makes getting dressed each and every day easy with less options!
So what do I recommend for building a collection of gold jewelry that covers just the basics? These are a good place to start. You can also check out this splurge v. save post I did a few months back on gold cuffs.
Other brands I love that do great gold jewelry? Gorjana does interesting pieces that often have a bit more of an organic feel. If you're on a small budget, Madewell does slightly edgier looks, a lot of stacked rings and such. And if you love jewelry with a story, the collection on 1stdibs is so fun to peruse.
