The Best Places to Buy Simple Gold Jewelry

Delicate gold jewelry has the uncanny ability to make an everyday outfit feel "done." Adding on the likes of a simple pendant necklace, sleek hoops, and a smattering of rings takes a T-shirt and jeans to the next level without compromising its casual nature. Evening outfits, too, can benefit from a solid dose of dainty metal—it adds just the right amount of panache to keep a look effortless yet elegant.
