Certain jewelry pieces are just harder to style than others. Silver earrings, for example, will pair well with everything, whereas statement crystal ones aren't quite as easy to wear. Gold baubles fall in between these two; they're still a classic metal, and thus a tad bit simpler to work into your look. But certain hues just don't work with it—the struggle, right?

So which shades go with gold jewelry? To find that out, we tapped celebrity stylist Britt Theodora for her expert know-how, asking her to pick the five colors she thinks pair best with the gold metallic. And to say she picked some truly incredible hues would be an understatement. From the most unexpected pairing (gold with emerald) to slightly easier ones (black with gold), Theodora's covered it all.

Ahead, the top five colors that go with gold jewelry so you'll never have to stress about whether your gold hoops coordinate with your red shirt (because yes, they do).


"I love wearing gold jewelry with black. It's a super-simple way to dress up an outfit. I love the contrast gold has with black. It's such a powerful duo!"

Emerald Green

"This color will definitely be trending this year. I keep seeing Kendall Jenner wear this fun color, and gold totally complements it."


"I love mixing metals. There's nothing wrong with it, and it shows that you aren't afraid to switch it up!"


"Monochromatic colors always look clean and put together. There's definitely something luxurious about wearing gold on gold!"


"I remember thinking that you always had to wear silver with red. I actually think a cool gold hoop earring and a red dress is a beautiful statement. I love this color combination. It's one of my favorites!"
