When It Comes to Jewelry, I Keep It Simple: 30 Gold Pieces I Approve Of

I'm all for incorporating colorful jewelry into my looks here and there, but the jewelry that I wear on a daily basis (and sometimes to sleep) is my collection of gold pieces. What can I say? I'm a simple girl. Okay, not really, but I can be when it comes to jewelry. Instead of doing a full-on Y2K-inspired jewelry party, I like to stick to my everyday jewelry and mix the more kitschy pieces in to create a balance of aesthetics. It's taken me some time to collect my everyday pieces, but it's been worth it because I've kept (and worn) many pieces for years and don't plan on getting rid of them anytime soon. 

If you're someone who wants to upgrade their everyday jewelry game, look no further. And remember, simple gold jewelry doesn't have to be boring, so fret not because the selection I've gathered today is versatile but features unique and playful silhouettes. Whether you're on a budget or are looking to invest in pieces for the long haul, keep scrolling to see the best gold jewelry on the market right now.
