Delicate Gold Necklaces

Q. I’ve never been a big jewelry wearer, but I realize how much it can pull together an outfit. My style is really classic and casual, and I’d love to find a very delicate, simple gold necklace with a small charm that I can wear with (almost) anything. I don’t have a whole lot to spend, but I want something nice. Any ideas?

A. Well, gold doesn’t come cheap and if you want to wear it with most everything in your wardrobe, it’s worth it to invest in a great necklace that will last you “forever” rather than something that will fade and turn another color. There are plenty of choices that don’t cost your paycheck. Look for a gold chain with a pendant or charm that is delicate and feminine alone on it’s own, but also think of it as a layering piece that you can wear with another gold necklace of another length. I found several lovely choices for you:

    I would like to add that I have a darling tiny gold heart necklace from Future Fashionista. It’s a very pretty necklace that I think has a vintage 70s flare.

    You can find the necklace here:

    Gorjana jewelry is exceptionally well made. The gold pieces are really elegant and can really go with day or evening apparel.
