There's nothing like finishing an outfit with a gold necklace. The dazzling accessory is a staple of POPSUGAR editors' jewelry boxes and a piece we know we can rely on no matter what we wear (sweatshirts included).
Necklaces can elevate any look — especially when they catch the light and give off a crisp shine. They're perfect for all occasions and have the ability to transform casual outfits into chic fashion statements. Whether it be a chunky chain-linked necklace that's dramatically bold or a thin gold necklace that's as light as day, there's no end to the number of gold necklaces for women to accessorize with.
