Bold in Gold: How to Style Gold Jewellery

Style influencer Gabby Smith shares her top tips.

It goes almost without saying that timeless, yellow gold styles are jewellery wardrobe essentials. The most classic, yet on-trend shade for fashion jewellery, our yellow gold styles are also crafted to last in precious 10kt gold or higher; so you can wear them day after day, layered in many different looks to suit your outfit and your mood.

One of the biggest accessory trends at the moment is statement layers, and you can achieve a fashionable bold look with your favourite gold jewellery pieces. Creating some eye-catching layers is the perfect way to take your look to the next level – whether you’re dressing for a party or special occasion, or you simply want to dress up a jeans-and-T-shirt outfit.

To inspire you, we asked chic style influencer, Gabby Smith, to share her top tips for layering gold jewellery to create a luxe, statement look.

Discover her tips, plus her favourite Michael Hill gold pieces to achieve the look – including some of our must-have new styles.

1. “I love to stack my golden jewellery to create a bold, layered look – including necklaces and rings.

2. I've chosen to style necklaces that vary in length, so they sit with a slight gap between them which creates an interesting look and allows each layer to be seen.

Starting with a simple Herringbone Chain at the top, I then added a slightly bolder necklace using the Hollow Curb Chain to add some texture.

Finally, I layered a St Christopher Pendant which works as the main feature of the look.

3. Rings are also fun to stack and style to create a bold, gold look.

I have chosen to style the Gold Croissant Ring on my index finger, to be the focus of my look. I then followed by stacking chunky golden bands, including the Wide Polished Dome Ring and Narrow Polished Dome Ring, to create a statement look.

I finally added in some finer rings, like the Small Curb Link Ring and Rectangular Signet Ring, to add balance to the look while still complementing the chunkier styles.”

Take inspiration from Gabby’s bold gold look, and layer two or more necklaces, rings, or bracelets at a time. Mix up the weights and textures of each piece to keep your look interesting and chic.

Layering yellow gold jewellery will allow you to effortlessly create a luxe, statement look – which is perfect for the party season, or to elevate your look for any occasion.
