If you’re a veteran silver wearer, it can be a little daunting to make the switch to gold, but fear not: EK Jewellers of Hainault, Essex (http://www.ekjewellers.co.uk/
Fun Gold Statement Pieces
A great way to start your gold collection is to embrace the current trend for long, gold-hued necklaces with fun, statement pendants on the end. For example, there are many pieces around with motifs including birds and fob-watches. Alternatively, how about a chunky gold cuff or choker to brighten up a plain outfit? These pieces may seem scary but actually the fun in them means that they can be worn without the seriousness which gold often evokes and are therefore a great way of introducing gold to your wardrobe.
Pop into your local jewellery shop to see for yourself the extensive range of frivolous gold jewellery pieces available.
Pairing Gold and Silver Together
Wearing gold and silver jewellery together can be seen as a brave move. However, if you’re more used to wearing silver jewellery than gold, wearing them together can be a great introduction to gold. Layering is key: wear gold and silver chain necklaces and bracelets together, more than one of each of course, and maybe top it all off with a large gold cocktail ring. Your local jeweller will be able to advise on which pieces work well together. Wearing gold and silver together also means that you can wear your favourite existing silver pieces with brand new gold pieces – the perfect excuse to buy more jewellery!
Graduate Towards the Serious
Once you’ve got the feel for wearing gold jewellery, you may want to consider yellow gold for the more serious pieces in your collection: special occasion rings, watches, necklaces and bracelets to mark special birthdays etc. If you have a love of vintage, then gold is likely to be the colour of choice for any investment pieces you may buy.
Warm skin tones in particular tend to favour gold jewellery, so if you are warm skinned don’t rule it out for any special pieces you may be looking to acquire.
