Gold or silver. It really is a bit of a fashion debate. My Nanna celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago and we bought her the most beautiful stirling silver Chanel inspired pearl bangle for the special day. When presenting her with the gift she was clearly a fan of the beautiful bracelet, but had to stop and say she “didn’t normally wear silver” and she was a gold girl. The next day when we went over to visit her she was wearing the bangle and had magically pulled some silver earrings from her “gold-only” jewellery box to match her gift. And she looked lovely!
There is nothing wrong with mixing it up a little in the accessories stakes, and I’ll admit I’m the opposite of my Nanna, I’m more of a silver fan. But I’ve recently noticed there is just something about the elegance of a simple gold piece of jewellery to really liven up an outfit. Be it a stack of bangles or a pair of delicate earrings, gold means business. One gold trend I’m loving right now is the gold pendant necklace. Styled up or down, by adding a gold pendant to your look you can take it from day to night. Here are a few of my favourite gold pendants right now.
1. Modcloth Boho Mythic Medallion Necklace – $23
This statement piece is perfect for pulling together the simplest of outfits. The mythical design is old-worldly and intricate, guaranteeing a lot of attention.
2. Need Supply Co Paper Clip Necklacew – $44
Quirky and modern, this necklace is perfect for any girl who needs a little bit of organisation in her life! Or if you’re a fan of anything left of field, like me!
3. Michael Kors Golden Pave Star Pendant Necklace @ Neiman Marcus – $130
Bling bling! This gorgeous star pendant is feminine and whimsical and very sweet. It’s one of those pieces that will make you feel like a million dollars with its intricate and lady like design.
4. Elizabeth and James Edo Pendant Necklace @ Shop Bop – $190
This pendant is just too slick! The simple design would compliment any outfit choice, and is perfect for those days when you simply can’t decide what to wear!
With Christmas only a few weeks away why not get onto the gold pendant trend, with options for any bank balance. You may surprise yourself at how much you like a good mix up in the bling stakes.
