With very few exceptions, I exclusively wear gold jewelry. And perhaps that explains why every time I see a tiny fleck of gold pass across my Instagram screen, my fingers instantly zoom in a little closer. Some may call it an obsession, and I'm perfectly fine with that. It's what lead me to a pretty chock-full collections page (I named it "Golden" ICYWW) of cool brands—high and low, new and established—with stunning and unique pieces of gold jewelry.
Although it's hard to narrow down, below are the 16 pieces that I can't stop thinking about. They're both interesting takes on classics like signet rings and golden hoop earrings (another personal favorite) as well as some really special shapes and silhouettes that you simply don't see every day.

There are so many adorable versions of this signet ring, but we applaud Leandra Medine's choice of flying pig.

I've become obsessed with UK brand Theodora Warre for all its gold designs. Consider this Exhibit A.
I'm not the biggest choker fan, but this dainty, sparkly style is the exception.
I'm really delighted that this necklace is called "coffee beans."
While the rose signet is sold out, I actually love this style even more.
The deep-V neckline paired with a powerful pendant is pretty major.
I like a bangle that's shiny and unfussy. Done and done.
Wear your initials or, depending on piercing count, whole name.
