The Perfect Everyday Gold Necklace

I have always had a love/hate relationship with gold. For the past several years, I thought it was terribly uncool and more something that my mom and grandmother would wear, but now gold is hot hot hot and I am all over it. The great thing is that I now realize that gold is truly timeless. Not too long ago we showed some bold gold jewelry and now I'd like to showcase the other end of the spectrum: perfect everyday gold necklaces. These are sweet, functional necklaces that can be worn solo or layered with other favorite pieces. They aren't too long or large, they are just perfect. The great thing about this style is you can make a subtle statement, whether about your personality or politics. Enjoy my designer and non-designer picks below.

I've hated gold for a long time because people I know who wear it, wear it horribly! Looking at these designs, maybe I ought to change my mind :p ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

I'm still not ready to go gold, which has made purse shopping really hard these past seasons :( I love Anthropologie. Did you know that Giada De Laurentis (my fav food network girl) is married to the designer? That owl necklace reminds me of something someone's kooky old aunt would wear.

Azucar I totally agree with you. I only like gold in certain tones. I really like pale gold with light green jade

I love most of these. I've hated gold jewelry on myself for several years and stuck to silver and platinum, but I admit that I think its wearable lately, in small doses.

BB, you're a bad influence! :EVIL: I don't plan on doing much shopping in Paris, so maybe I will buy it. It seems silly to be so indecisive over something so cheap, but money's been really tight lately.

I just checked out the tree necklace AGAIN. I want it so bad. I haven't been spending any money because I leave for Paris in five days and I'm trying to save every cent for my trip. But it's only $18, so maybe I'll treat myself this weekend.

Whip I love those first two owl neckalces. The one from anthropolgie is a little to expensive for me at this moment but I keep watching it to see when it will go on sale

I didnt see that Ill have to check it out. Im really disappointed in myself because there was this adorable elephant necklace at this store but I was determined to not spend any money even though it was only $5. Now it is gone and I will never see it again :(

I know, I missed out on that bag as well. Boo! Did you see my post on vintage owl jewelry? I put it up last week sometime. I've been so into them lately. My mother bought me an adorable pendant at a secondhand store last week but I haven't had a chance to post a pic of it yet.

Im obessed with everything owl at this moment why I dont know but I am. Paul and Joe for Target had this adorable plaid owl bag but it sold out everywhere even on online and I never got a chance to buy it :(

I've been ogling that tree necklace on for a while now. I might pick it up this weekend. I haven't seen the owl at Anthropologie, although I've been obsessed with owl necklaces lately.

UrbanOutfitters and Anthropologie has the most adorable gold necklaces. They even have one that is a tree. Anthropologie has one that I adore of an owl
