In recent years, gold jewelry has reached basic status. What an elegant woman is not it complete her tailoring and totally neutral looks with a pair of hoops in this warm metal?

Before, gold was considered too flashy and suit-like for everyday wear, but now it’s celebrated for its simplicity. Jewelry designers have moved away from baroque settings, opting instead for pieces with soft curves, clean lines and subtly abstract shapes.

Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your style. A slender chain can go from understated to bohemian when layered, and even the most traditional rings will add drama when stacked. Brands design with mix and match in mind, creating versatile and buildable looks so customers can get the most out of their purchases.

Another reason for the growing popularity of gold jewelry in recent years (silver used to be the more affordable choice) is the introduction of quality vermeil and plated pieces by brands like Mejuri and Monica Vinader. These fashion editor favorites paved the way for even more independent jewelry brands, like By Alona and Edge of Ember and Oma The Label.

But if it’s the real deal you’re looking for – this stuff really will last a lifetime – this edition is filled with a shimmering range of gold bracelets, bangles, earrings and necklaces from Chanel, Tiffany & Co, Piaget , Cartier and Boodles.
