Growing on Gold

I went through many years of only wearing silver (or silver colored) jewelry. I avoided all gold jewelry because it often felt too bright or garish to me. But as time has passed gold has grown on me. Not all golds (like the ultra shiny or off-putting shades of gold that can be especially apparent in costume jewelry) but definitely more golds. I’ve slowly been incorporating gold into my (costume) jewelry collection.

I picked up some gold jewelry while I was thrift shopping and never thought twice about its goldness (as I would have perhaps a year or two ago). There were actually three broaches that I thought were cute, all small, slender and gold, but I chose this one because I really like the pearl as the focal point and the art nouveau style of the flowing lines. I can’t say that I’ve ever really been a broach person, but I think I could use it (at least I rationalized as such when I decided to buy it).

The second gold piece of jewelry I bought were a pair of geometric red earrings. There was another pair of gold guitar pick shaped earrings that used a lovely teal and cobalt blue color that I was tempted to get, but I decided on these earrings because I really like the icicle shape of them. They’re simple and bold and I think they’re really cute.
