Gold and Modesty – A Guide to Gold Jewellery
Gold jewellery is compatible with various outfits. With all its bling and glam, gold can easily overshadow the rest of your appearance. The trick is to wear gold while remaining modest; you just have to wear it the right way that complements your clothing and other fashion accessories. This short guide will show you the best way to wear gold jewellery based on what is trending in 2017.
1. Gold and Platinum
Gold jewellery complements nicely with other styles and colours, for example platinum. A combination like a gold necklace and platinum earrings, or vice versa, makes a great fashion statement. Gold and silver also pair together nicely, such as on this beautiful engraved family tree necklace.
2. Personalised Pieces
Personalised jewellery is always nice and special because it’s a clear testament to what you hold dear in your heart. Personalised jewellery can consist of a number of pieces. A bracelet or wedding band with an interior engraving is a common example, though there are a dozen of others. Another trending style is a engraved custom necklace with your name or the name of a lover written in beautiful cursive font. Other variations of this include the name written vertically, or the name written in Arabic.
A gold-name necklace or other personalised piece of jewellery makes a sentimental gift - for yourself or given by another. Wearing a piece of personalised jewellery is a way of holding something close, and treasuring a special person or memory.
3. Highlight a Body Area
Gold jewellery can be worn as a statement piece or it can be used to draw attention to a certain area that you wish to highlight. Necklaces, for example, can be worn at many different chain lengths. If this is your intention, though, then don’t wear too many pieces. Wearing too many jewellery at once pulls the eyes in various directions.
4. Create Contrasting Patterns
Use any gold jewellery that “breaks” the shape of a monotone colour. A gold necklace for example, adds contrast to a solid black dress. Jewellery can also change the perception of your body shape. Wearing a long gold chain, for instance, makes your body appear taller and slimmer.
5. Statement Jewellery
Statement jewellery consist of any piece designed to draw attention. For modesty, it is suggested to wear only one, or two at most, statement pieces of jewellery at a time. A statement necklace or pair of earrings adds a touch of style to any outfit.
Some good examples of statement jewellery include:
- Your own personalised name necklace
- A beautiful engraved bracelet
- Hanging earrings
- A personalised gold bar necklace
There is a place for gold jewellery for most fashion styles. The key is wearing the right pieces in the right places. Jewellery is meant to highlight your overall appearance, and gold jewellery can certainly be a great fashion statement if worn modestly.
