5 Ways to Make Gold Jewelry Feel New

5 New Ways to Wear Gold Jewelry

Welcome to July. Heat is on the rise, clothing skews skimpy, and sartorial flourishes—volume, texture, layers—are trumped by “It’s too damn hot.” You know what scratches the little-something-extra itch at no cost to your body temp? Jewelry. But not just any jewelry. We’re talking about add-ons decked out in rainbow sapphires, earrings punctuated by freshwater pearls, rings inlaid with intricately cut stones. These are the conversation-owning shapes that when paired with the world’s most precious metal (gold, obviously), wield the power to perk up everything from a delicately dipped neckline to a best-loved cotton tee.

    All Whites Reserved

    Summer and rosé, sea and stripes, gold and diamonds—some combinations never lose their appeal. An on-point monochrome matchup in—you guessed it—all white lets this timeless combination really shine.

    Chains of Command

    Chunky chains veer into lighthearted territory when you embellish them with charms or work in an unexpected pairing, like choker-length links and a sleek, streamlined swimsuit. Pro tip: Double the chains, double the impact.
