Your Golden Style Guide
If you’re looking to put more thought into your jewellery collection, understanding the nuanced difference between gold, white gold, and rose gold pieces can be more daunting than ordering a specialized coffee order for your boss during the breakfast rush while it’s showing out and you’re already 10 minutes late.
Don’t worry, we won’t rush you through our line. We’re here to help. There’s no shortage of parties, events, and gatherings on the horizon, so let’s take a closer look at three distinct golden styles that will add a little flourish to your fashion sense.
Gold: Timeless Elegance
Classic gold has adorned queens and fashionistas alike for centuries. This precious metal is basically the Audrey Hepburn of jewellery (or maybe Lily Collins if you’re under 35); timeless, effortlessly chic, and always in style. Pure 24 karat gold is too soft for everyday wear, so it’s often alloyed with other metals like copper and silver to increase durability.
The allure of gold lies in its warm, rich hue that complements all skin tones. Whether you’re rocking an ugly Christmas sweater or are out on the town in a glamorous gown, gold seamlessly transitions from day to night. For winter fashion, consider pairing your gold jewellery with deep, luxurious tones like burgundy or emerald green for an extra touch of class.
White Gold: Modern Class
For those who crave the cool allure of silver but desire the warmth of gold, you’re in luck! White gold is created by alloying gold with white metals like nickel, resulting in a stunning silver-hued finish. White gold offers a sleek and sophisticated alternative to traditional “yellow” gold, making it a favourite among our fashion-forward friends.
White gold is like the little black dress of jewellery–a versatile and timeless choice that elevates any ensemble. For the best winter vibes, pair your white gold pieces with crisp whites, icy blues, or just basic black for a look that’s cooler than Calgary snow.
Rose Gold: Eternal Romantic
Mark your moment with the romance of rose gold. This exquisite metal is created by blending pure gold with copper then applying a blush-toned finish that exudes femininity. This little rebel in your jewellery box breaks away from tradition with its unique, captivating hue.
Want to add a touch of romance to any outfit? The answer is always rose gold. Pair it with earthy tones for a look that’s worth leaving the house for when it’s 20 below 0. Picture yourself wrapped in a soft sweater, sipping on hot chocolate with your date near the fireplace (even if it’s just that one playing in a loop on tv), the snow is falling outside, and the flickering light shines on sweet rose gold accents for a romantic glow.
