"When you are thinking about your jewelry arsenal—what to add and what pieces to invest –there is something about solid gold—textural, sculptural, linear or geometric, high polished or with an aged patina in 14K or high karat, yellow, rose or green gold. These are pieces without any gemstones or diamonds ; however, they will stack and layer well with pieces with diamonds or colored gemstones. They could be the staples or backbone of your jewelry wardrobe. These days with gold prices going up, the pieces we covet –those weighty chains, the bold rings, the statement necklaces or bracelets will have mileage if we choose styles that feel current yet have the enduring quality of being the pieces we go back to whenever we need essentials to throw on that work well with just about any fashion choices we make. These are pieces that are also seasonless—they can work with layers of clothing in the winter and lightweight T-shirt dressing in the summer."
