I'm an 18k yellow gold kind of gal. When it comes to jewelry, I'll usually swap sterling silver or white gold for the more mellow yellow gold variety.
What can I say? Yellow gold makes me feel good. It makes me feel all seventies/Halston chic. Not to mention the fact that every jewelry store or pawn shop I drive by has huge signs plastered in their storefront windows desperately trying to lure me in with "WE WILL BUY YOUR GOLD!!" It makes me feel important. Like I gots what you wants and you can't have it. So, other than a dream 1+ carat princess or asscher cut diamond ring in a setting made of purely platinum, I'm going to choose to stay gold like Ponyboy (*my favorite quote from the Outsiders).
If I were to stray away from my signature yellow gold, I might gravitate towards the new trend in the gold mines this season and go the rose gold route. Rose gold adds a hint of femininity to your spring and summer bling, offering a pinky copperish twist on the old gold standard.
From Rose Gold Stretch Rings to vintage style Fire Stud Earrings, everything is coming up rose gold in the latest crop of Fossil catalogs. At the moment, I'm blushing over this Riley Multifunction Rose Gold Watch as well as the ultra ladylike Three Hand Rose Gold style and my favorite Stella Multifunction that works in a brown satin dial with just a light whisper of rosiness on the band.
p.s. You can also experiment with Fossil's Lillian Square sunglasses that will give you the good kind of pink eye, because sometimes it's just better to see the world through rose colored glasses.
