Yellow Gold: The Comeback Kid

Yellow gold, a precious metal that was for a while not so hot, is seeing a tremendous rebound in fashion. The strengthening economy paired with lower gold prices has set the trend of bold, chunky gold back in motion. Because gold is becoming more affordable, designers aren’t limited to crafting small, dainty pieces. Instead they’re following the motto “Go big or go home” and are designing pieces that make a statement. For example, Karine Sultan’s gold dipped collar necklace3 just screams cool.

 

Bold Gold Meets Bling

Also trending is the merging of bold yellow gold with diamonds. When paired together in a single piece of jewelry, the regal materials simply radiate elegance and affluence. Marlee’s Designs diamond teardrop bangle6 stylishly combines diamond bling with classic gold for a polished look.

 

Pretty Pearls

A shimmering substitute for classic precious metals is a material that comes straight from the sea: pearls! Many people often overlook the metallic-like qualities of these simple white jewels, but you’re not going to want to let them slip by you this season! The Ashlyn’d frosty clutch1, filled with glimmering pearl-colored beads, provides a sleek alternative that’s perfect for a night out on the town.

 

Finding the Silver Lining

Silver, white gold and platinum have been the metal of choice for some time now, and for good reason! Silver-colored jewelry is so clean and fresh, and it goes with nearly every color of the rainbow. Silver is so versatile and can take even the dullest of outfits up a notch with its simple shine. Marlee’s Designs’ silver plated stackable rings2 are both trendy and affordable!

 

Hardcore Gunmetal

Metallic black is the epitome of edgy, but you don’t have to be a hardcore rocker chick to sport the trendy material. With a black gunmetal horn necklace5 by Michael Kors, you can harness your inner dark side while keeping it classy. Wear it with a little black dress for a sleek monochromatic look, or pair it with a bright colored top for a more casual, fun feel!

 

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Rose-tinted metals are a fun, girly alternative to the classic gold or silver metals. Rose gold is often considered the more toned-down version of the classic yellow gold. This Movado Bold rose watch5 captures the elegance of precious metals with a punch of femininity–the perfect addition to any working woman’s jewelry collection.

A lot of us girls have a preference for one metal over another, so it can be easy to fall into a lull of wearing the same materials again and again. But with the metallic jewelry trend on the rise, now’s the perfect time to experiment with alternative metallic colors. Have some fun and get your shimmer on!
