gold jewellery!!!




MUCH EXCITEMENT

I did this post back in May after having had the intention of writing it since 2015. I had actually originally planned to write this using my jewellery only but Aurate contacted me and asked if I could showcase a few of their products so I agreed. It's not really my favourite post to have put up because I feel like I rushed it too much and didn't put enough thought into it but I don't want to delete it in case the brand thinks it's an attack on them (it totally isn't)

I love jewellery, not so much the bold and bright beads and heavy duty metals but the lighter and daintier spheres of it. That makes me sound like I'm one of those scandi style bloggers haha. Gold jewellery is my favourite as I find silver to be a bit too harsh and cold for me, especially with my skin tone so gold and anything warm toned is always the way for me. I haven't pictured my more expensive necklace because it's always on me and I don't want to break the 3 years of me wearing it for a photo (is that lame?) Perhaps my obsession with gold is a cultural thing, it's of great significance in Morocco.

I'm so used to having more expensive and valuable jewellery because as I stated, gold is really highly regarded within my family so when it came to expanding my collection, real gold was not an option (unless a nice, wealthy man would like to PayPal me...also I need £40k for future tuition fees...and around £2k for my gap year) I went onto the haven that is depop and found a boutique (link is here) that sells really minimal jewellery for super reasonable prices. The 3 for £5 deal is definitely one to check out, I literally love everything I bought from them and wear them so often if not every day. The small hooped earrings are the coolest things ever, they look like studs but then the hoop is from behind your earlobe if that made any sense. These are my favourite pairs because they're so understated but genuinely switch up your classic earrings. And the confusion on peoples faces when they try to figure out "how do those even work?" is always entertaining.

Next are a pair of hoops which have managed to unite every teenage girl regardless of race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. All jokes aside, are you even a teenage girl if you don't own a pair of hoop earrings? I find that the regular pairs weigh my earlobe down and my worst nightmare is having a stretched out earlobe so this pair are perfect because they're essentially studs. They're quite big and in your face so I love wearing them when my outfit is a little more on the plain side and they fit perfectly in the 80s theme with bright blue eyeliner, big frizzy hair and bright clothing (these are the things you have to keep in mind when buying things lol)

The bloggers staple: the crescent moon necklace. I love wearing this with my other necklace because layering gold necklaces is my favourite look ever. It's pretty understated and looks really nice with  turtle neck top but I'm imagining the effortless and airy summer looks against bronzed skin. I can't wait for the warmer exam free weather to roll around.

And finally, my Daniel Wellington watch. It seems like every blogger has a paid partnership or discount code with this brand. Unfortunately I don't. If there's a member of the PR office at DW reading this, please hit me up. This is my favourite watch ever because it's so simple and basic which suits my tiny wrists perfectly as it doesn't look too chunky and big. It's all in all just a very timeless (ha!) watch and so so versatile. I'm not sure of the actual name of this style as it was a gift from my mum but there's a huge range of different styles available.

As I'm editing this and about to publish it, I have added another gold necklace to my collection. It came to a mere £3.90 after the fab sales at & Other Stories. I saw so many nice pieces in their store, both sale and new collection and I was so tempted to pick up a few other things but ya girls broke (if the potential wealthy man is still reading...please)

Quick anecdote which probably isn't going to sound as interesting as I anticipated it to be. This morning Ambra just randomly told me "You love gold jewellery don't you?" after complimenting my new necklace. "And you love those earrings too" Just found it amusing because little did she know I've written a whole post about my love for gold jewellery including the earrings and necklace I'm wearing.

yeah that definitely didn't sound as fun as I thought it would. oh well.

what are your favourite pieces of jewellery? are you a silver or gold person (or even rose gold)?

  2. Love your jewellery pieces- I was always more of a gold fan but I have too many piercings that are already silver to bother changing to gold, also I feel like silver has become part of me now. I love all the dainty stuff you have, the hoops look perfect! Also your watch is super cute, I broke my watch the other day and am frantically searching for a new one because I feel naked without my watch. x

    1. Woo thank you, Libby. Haha yeah I can imagine that'd be a pain. Depop and &other stories are the best places to find minimalist jewellery! ah I can't imagine now wearing my watch which is so funny because a few months ago I used to HATE them

  3. Yesssss, I love how you have dedicated a post to gold jewellery, because it is actually the shit. It's such a complementary, classy colour. I used to think that silver went with everything, which it kinda does, but having hints of gold, as earings or necklaces or otherwise, is so effective! Also loving the crecsent moon necklace. I have to check out that depop!

    1. I just had to do it, honestly gold is just my favourite. I think gold is just SO much nicer than silver and can elevate anything- you could be wearing toothpaste stained tracksuits but whack on statement gold jewellery and it's high fashion lool
      that depop shop is my fAVE

  4. I seem to be a funny one because my skin tone allows me to wear gold, silver and rose gold jewellery and I have no preference. I have, however, been LOVING gold recently, the pieces in this post are beautiful xx
