Golden Skies

For years, I touted silver's superiority to gold.

"It goes with everything."

"It's much more classic."

"Gold is just so tacky."

And then I purchased a piece of gold costume jewelry. Then another. The truth is, gold exudes an exoticism and a warmth that silver just can't match.

  13. I couldn't agree more! I think silver is a thing of our generation, but as I'm getting older and as I started wearing vintage jewelry, I just can't get enough of large gold necklaces dangling around my neck. :) Je l'adore.

  17. I agree with you... gold is elegant, but I don't like those super flashy golds. I prefer the muted gold. I love those gold accessories you chose. xoxo

  18. I completely agree with this and it's funny because in jr. high and high school I wouldn't touch gold with a ten foot pole.

  20. had the same thing, hated gold but now every now and then I like some items. you just have to do it gently and also have the right face is my opinion, some people are just tacky already, gold only makes it worse!

  21. I love the bracelet! I had no idea that ABS made jewelry.

  22. I love wearing gold jewelry in the summer. You're so right about how it exudes a warmth not found in silver.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I so agree, I was a silver girl until a few years ago... gold just adds such a fun sense of glamor to everything!

  24. I'm so with you. I thought gold was tacky too! But once I realized how much silver jewelry I had, I discovered gold could match with a lot of outfits too.

  25. I couldn't agree more. I made the switch to gold recently as well. Now silver just seems tacky to me. Funny how our opinions change over time.

  26. I was exactly the same way - I wouldn't touch gold for years, and now I actually prefer it to silver! Not that I don't wear them both, and often together.

    I'm really drawn to the rawness of the ring, quite lovely.

  28. I felt the same until I bought golden swarvoski earrings. love them and they look so good to warm colours such as brown!

  29. Those citrine earrings are gorgeous! haha I used to be exactly the same with gold as well, but now I love it for its warmth and classic luxury. You do have to be a bit more careful though not to look gauche than with silver!
