Gold Jewellery to Shop RN
It seems that the world goes through phases: one minute silver jewellery is HUGE and g(old) is well, old, and then suddenly our silver pieces are being pushed to the bottom of our jewellery boxes and gold jewellery adorns our faces.
For the past couple of years, we, myself included, been in a gold rush. So I've curated this quick edit of some essential and affordable gold jewellery pieces to shop now, with the knowledge that gold is going nowhere for a while.

My top three picks...
& Other Stories, £23
The essential Parisian cool-girl jewellery piece, the gold hoop is the ultimate accessory. Update yours by going for some mismatched ones in different sizes. Mismatched-matching earrings are a micro-trend for AW19 so i's worth jumping in on it a bit early.
Coin necklaces have been in the game for a HOT minute now. I've always found that my Accessorize pieces from their Z collection stay looking brand new, and usually their quality is gorgeous. Take off that little dangly opal and this could easily be mistaken for a Missoma necklace (usually SUPER expensive), and to top if off, there's a necklace for every zodiac sign!
Ottoman Hands, £31
I used to be much more of a rings wearer. Then, I got lazy. But I still love rings, and I'm trying to get back into it, so if I was to purchase a ring, it'd be this gold plated beauty. It's a statement piece which can still be layered and Ottoman Hands is a brand that never fails to deliver. It's a timeless piece that you can bet you'll be reaching for in summers to come.
So that's my mini edit: short, sweet and not too spenny. If I'm honest, a lot of my jewellery comes from these brands as well as a few others like ASOS and Topshop. With that said, when I get the chance I really do enjoy going to craft fairs and markets to see what I can find. When I lived in Australia, my favourite market for jewellery was Glebe. I can't for the life of me remember what the name of the jewellery brand I purchased from was, but it was heavenly and sold pieces that looked near identical to Missoma for MUCH more affordable prices: YAY dupes! The necklace that I purchased in Glebe (the coin necklace in the selfie) has probably been worn nearly every day, and the colour hasn't faded. For you Sydneysiders, Glebe is open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm, and is well worth a visit.
My more general tips for jewellery shopping is to stick to gold plated pieces for those, like me, who have a more humble budget. Usually they'll have the same look as a solid piece and if cared for, will last a lot longer than brass metal pieces.
And with that, happy shopping!
