Gold rings are often viewed as symbols of love and marriage, but these meaningful accessories can take on a variety of different styles and textures to add sophistication to any wardrobe. While silver is a popular jewelry choice, a gold ring is timeless. The good news is that gold complements every skin tone, and the styling possibilities are almost endless.
Seasons and Matching
Gold can be paired with most colors, so gold accessories can be worn all year long; however, the warmth and sheen of a gold ring naturally lends itself to a spring or summer wardrobe.
Coral pinks, bright oranges and white linen fabrics paired with a simple gold band looks sophisticated and chic for summer, even with more casual, beach-inspired clothing.
Adding a few extra rings of varying sizes and textures can give the look a very bohemian feel.
While some women are comfortable mixing gold and silver for an eclectic look, sticking to strictly gold accessories looks elegant and can pull an entire outfit together.
And if you’re looking for more sparkle, the ocean-like blue of a topaz set in gold makes a beautiful combination for summer time.
If you’re wearing gold jewelry during the summer, why not add a touch of gold to your face as well?
A natural-looking bronzer makes skin glow, but many women limit bronzer to their face. Try dusting a bit of bronzer anywhere bare skin is showing, and it will make your gold accessories pop.
Coral pinks and oranges (like those in your summer wardrobe) can also double as eyeshadow and blush.
You can also substitute a touch of a gold shadow on the inner corner of the eyes (instead of silver or white) to brighten up your face and unify your look.
Summer isn’t the only time gold accessories look chic and fashionable.
Rich shades of burnt orange, marigold and chocolate brown are typical of fall, and they also pair easily with gold.
Intricately designed gold rings can add a touch of feminine style, while chunkier, matte gold accessories look fresh and modern.
Citrine, orange sapphire and fire opals look stunning against gold jewelry, and the stone size can be adjusted to create a delicate accessory or a bold statement piece. Try pairing the look with natural makeup or a bold mod cat-eye to complete your fall look.
The most festive time of the year is also ideal for gold jewelry.
Rich jewel-toned fabrics, popular in winter, are beautiful with gold. Exaggerate these luxurious colors with rich, draped fabrics and elegant cuts.
A gold ring pairs naturally with plush cashmeres and oversized sweaters, and most gold jewelry looks chic with a winter wardrobe. Avoid mixing silver pieces for a more refined look.
Ruby, emerald and amethyst all look stunning set in gold, especially with similar-colored fabrics.
Makeup should be equally sophisticated: a bare face will look out of place, but most other makeup styles will look stunning.
A gold ring is more than a symbol of love; it is a symbol of style, elegance and a sophisticated sense of fashion.
Whether you choose to pair your gold with the warm, glowing colors of summer or dress it up with luxurious jewel tones, gold jewelry can make a statement in your wardrobe.
