I was always into silver. Now I'm wondering if it looks a bit...^studenty^?

Just bought a couple of gold bits from Etsy, adn I'm chuffed with t

I always used to wear silver but the last few years I have bought more gold - particularly anything matt/antique style.

studenty eh? i don't have much jewellery but what i do have is silver, am not keen on gold somehow
silver seems more subtle

Surely it's about you skin tone though? Gold looks horrid on me

I'm generally a silver person. Chunky (that's me and the silver wink). Can't do delicate, generally.

noddyholder Wed 08-Jun-11 16:29:21

I like gold. Silver ok with a tan

BulletWithAName Wed 08-Jun-11 16:32:35

I didn't wear gold for years, but now I wear it more than I wear silver. Well, gold coloured jewellery anyway grin

cybbo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:33:36

Yes perhaps a silver chunky looks good on a nice tanned hand

Too much gold is not good

The necklaces and bracelet I've just bought are teensy and dainty and I ususally need something chunkier to balance out my sparrow wrists

noddyholder Wed 08-Jun-11 16:35:08

I love skinny slithery jewellery in gold. Chunky is what my mum and all her social worker mates wear

cybbo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:36:36

one necklace like this teensy drop that sits just in hollow of throat

I luff it

PharoahNuff Wed 08-Jun-11 16:37:40

its not what is IN
its what suits you
gold makes me yella

noddyholder Wed 08-Jun-11 16:37:50

That is very nice. I have seen a very skinny gold ring like barbed wire sounds awful but very pretty I want it!

ggirl Wed 08-Jun-11 16:38:13

I love life on the edge and mix sometimesshock

PharoahNuff Wed 08-Jun-11 16:39:00

BulletWithAName Wed 08-Jun-11 16:42:02

I like the sound of that ring noddy

cybbo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:42:43

I wanted something I could wear round the clock.

cybbo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:43:49
