New York City, May 13, 2019. Fashionistas are well aware of the prominence of gold on recent runways. From clothing color at Ulla Johnson to golden-tone accessories at Escada, fine gold jewelry can easily take part in this sunny renaissance. While hoop earrings and hearts continue to enjoy time in the jewelry-motif spotlight, fringe and chains are another happy part of this chic mix. Ditto for long earrings, layering necklaces, and the occasional bold statement piece that can punch up a simple outfit ASAP. Plus, there’s that inherent value in pieces that lasts long after affections for the looks diminish. There’s a reason why the term “Gold Standard” has perennial appeal; karat gold jewels have longevity in museum cases and jewelry boxes worldwide.
