The ultimate gold jewellery collection - a quick quide

The ultimate gold jewellery collection - a quick quide

If you're anything like us, choosing jewellery can be overwhelming, given the amount of choice available online now. Are you someone that has jewellery all over the place, but none that you really like? Perhaps your New Year's resolution is to scale back on clothing and accessories, only purchasing pieces that work seamlessly with your wardrobe. And perhaps you want to shop local, buying only from a New Zealand based jewellery brand. 

A great way to avoid over-buying jewellery is to build a jewellery capsule collection. What does that mean? Well, it's all about buying the basics and building from there. The key is choosing pieces that work well with the many outfits in your wardrobe - as well as being real about what you will and won't wear. 

Here's a quick guide to get you started with gold pieces that will stand the test of time. If you're a silver person, then most of these are also available in silver.   

1. The Classic Gold Chain Necklace

A gold necklace is a timeless piece of jewellery that has been cherished for centuries. Its versatility makes it a must-have accessory for any wardrobe. It's the perfect piece to start building your jewellery collection with. Whether you're dressing up for a special occasion or adding a touch of elegance to your everyday look, a gold necklace can effortlessly elevate your style -  plus, if you're a minimalist kind of gal then a simple gold necklace is the perfect fit. 

We recommend - The Snake Chain Necklace in stainless steel and 18k gold. Priced at $48 NZD with free shipping New Zealand wide. 

2. Classic Gold Earrings 

One of the reasons why gold is so versatile is that it compliments all skin tones. Whether you have fair, medium, or dark skin, gold brings out the warmth in your skin tone. That said, some people just prefer silver, which is why we carry both gold and silver jewellery in our online New Zealand jewellery store. But back to the gold earrings. Check out the Sara Gold Square earrings - priced at $25 NZD with free shipping New Zealand wide. 

3. The Ultimate Minimalist Gold Earrings 

If you're looking for classic gold earrings that are slightly larger, then the Bindy Gold Rectangle earrings are it. Crafted from stainless steel and 18k gold, they'll work well as part of your jewellery capsule collection. If you want to go crazy, stack them with the Sara square earrings (above). The Bindy earrings are $48 NZD with free shipping New Zealand wide. 

4. The Classic Gold Bracelet

Finding timeless, classic bracelets and bangles is difficult - there's a lot less choice in wristwear than there is for earrings and necklaces. The Anna bracelet is the answer -  it's crafted from stainless steel and 18k gold and pairs well with the aforementioned necklace and earrings. It's also available in silver. The Anna Bracelet is $50 NZD with free shipping New Zealand wide. 


The final word

Once you have your base pieces, the world is your oyster. It's easier to add to your collection with pieces that compliment the gold basics. Try adding pearls or mix your metals by adding in some silver. The one proviso? Make sure you're purchasing pieces that are wearable and that work with your basics.
