Time for a historical moment. In 1511, King Ferdinand of Spain sent his explorers off to the newly discovered Americas with this goal: “Get gold, humanely if you can—but all hazards, get gold.” Five hundred years later, that’s exactly what stylists and celebrities are saying. And what’s not to love? The adaptable hue lends a little luxury and polish to everything from a bikini to a ball gown.
These days, there’s no need to set sail for new continents or crack out your sifting pan. The only challenge left in the quest for gold is deciding where to start your collection. Go for a classic look with gold stud earrings or a floral bracelet from Jules Smith or tuleste market. Oversized chains and necklaces from Kenneth Jay Lane or House of Harlow add some heavy-hitting vintage glamour to basic tees and not-so-basic dresses, while a Fallon bib necklace worn with almost anything makes for an effortlessly au courant look.
