Give me links aplenty, oh stylish ones. I need GOLD JEWELERY...
Okay so I recently bored various members of the board with tales of how I got my colours done. So life as a Clear Spring is going rather nicely, ticking along buying various bits in the summer sale in my new colours etc.
But it turns out I'm apparently better at "gold" than "silver" in terms of skin tone, and I didn't quite believe it at first as I had come to prefer silver over the past decade or so, perhaps because I got married and had a big diamondy platinummy thing happening on one hand and didn't want to clash with that, who knows, anyway.
So I bought a really crap thing from New Look for next to nothing This, please don't laugh just to see if I could fathom "gold", and it looks bloody fantastic against my skin so seems they were right.
So I need something "real". I nice everyday pendanty thing, the New Look fakeness gives you an idea of the kind of style I like, ideally something a bit vintagey or romantic looking, nothing super shiny or too classic.
Any ideas for websites to look at? Where are the cool kids buying gold stuff these days? Anything special or different?
Alex Monroe and Monica Vinader both have pretty gold jewellry that's not eye-poppingly expensive. Also Agatha often have very pretty pieces and are very reasonable, dont think you can buy online though.
Ooh this is all so nice. I've seen Alex Monroe before and forgot all about him but was drooling now I "can" wear gold. Love the Astley Clarke. Have never heard of Ola Gorie, thanks for that GentleOtter, that is definitely one to keep an eye on. I can imagine if I were to invest in a locket it would be from there or that style. Noddy - I've just bought that pendant - it passed me by when I was browsing yesterday but I watched the video presentation and thought, for that price, I've got to give it a try! I love QVC!!!
Thanks for all your links, keep them coming thick and fast if you know of any more! x
I have some Monica Vinader and Azuni pieces, ver ver nice. Also I have stuff made at the local jeweller which is bespoke and not ridiculously more than the high street. So why not find a design and get a local jeweller to make it for you...
