Gold Aspirations

Gold: This season’s hottest accessory

With the price of gold at an all time high anything in the color gold or in the material itself screams of luxury. As gold approaches the price of diamonds it takes the starring role as it were the gem rather than the supporting role it has been used to through the decades. Personally I have been more of a white gold kind of person but lately I adore all accessories in gold. It’s nice to see yellow gold as the “it metal” of this season. Daring designers are using modern twists in the details making this metal even more glamorous yet urban chic.
I find it fascinating to witness how fashion and what is in style affect our taste. It seems that every 10 years yellow gold makes a strong comeback. From about 1999 to 2009 white gold was the star of every fashion jewelry line but now we are in the middle of a luscious gold age and I am embracing it!!!
