Five Ways To Wear Gold

Five Ways To Wear Gold

Gold will always be a classic and timeless hue for jewellery and watches, yet this season gold is in the spotlight more than ever. We’re loving that gold is having such a fashion moment. After all, nothing brightens up your look for summer like glowing gold accessories that twinkle in the sunlight.

Here's some top tips on how to make the most of this precious metal...

1. Be A Gem

Gold complements gemstones beautifully. Not only does the glistening finish look lovely against the stones, but gold is also a strong metal, making it a great setting for holding precious stones.

2. Mix It Up

Mixing yellow gold with rose gold or white gold (or all three together!) is a jewellery trend that’s set to stay. Gone are the days of spending too much time perfectly coordinating the colours of your accessories. It’s time to get adventurous and mix up your metals. 

3. Subtle Luxury

Worn bold or kept sleek, gold works for every look. If you want to express subtle yet luxurious style, then match your ensembles with simply stunning accessories like this gorgeous 18ct gold vermeil Links of London bracelet.

4. Gold o'clock

If you’re more about making a fashion statement, then a gold tone fashion watch is the answer. This Vivienne Westwood watch is gorgeous and loved for the luxurious black and gold combination.

5. Modern Glamour

As modern trends come in, gold moves with them. This classic metal can look stunning when used for contemporary jewellery styles. We’re loving these unique 9ct gold drop earrings that give a traditional drop style a chic update.

Now you know how to style your gold pieces, here's some fun facts on what makes this precious metal so special.

Did you know?...

1. Gold is extra-terrestrial! Nearly all our gold comes from meteorites that hit the Earth over 4 billion years ago.

2. The chemical symbol Au comes from the old Latin name for gold, aurum, which means ‘shining dawn’ or ‘glow of sunrise’. How lovely!

3. Gold is the only metal that is yellow or ‘golden’.

4. Three Olympic swimming pools can hold all the gold ever mined in the world - We wouldn’t mind bathing in one of those!

5. Gold is extremely ductile. Just one ounce of gold can be stretched out into a five mile long thread!
