Go For Gold: A Breakdown Of The Instagram-Worthy Necklace Trend According To Four Personality Types

Gold⁠ accents, highlights, and looks are on fire. But don't believe us just yet, for one cursory glance at jewellery highlights of the year will tell you this⁠—the gilded, gleaming hue is here and by the looks of it, here to stay.

But how do you decide whether to stack it up, wear it solo, or mix and match to give out a cool retro vibe? To make things simpler, we've curated some gold-accented necklaces for you and styled them according to four sartorial personality types. Ready to find out which one you are? 

For The Minimalist

Gold chain necklaces may be the order of the day, but if sizeable iterations are not your cup of tea, we suggest taking the simple yet striking route for a winning look. Pick a layered necklace with diverse sleek chains interlinked to ace the stacked necklace trend, or opt for a linear accessory with attention to details; when it comes to simple depictions, the options are many.

From the runways of Bottega Veneta to Tod’s, Autumn Winter 2019 collections have shown an inclination towards chunky jewellery, often open to customisation and distinct interpretations. Not to forget, of course, the medallions that add to its modern appeal. Whether you wear the jewellery as sighted on the runways or put your spin on it, our coveted picks are failsafe when it comes to accessorising.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know that the vintage logos are back, both in apparel and accessories. And they show no signs of disappearing just yet. For anyone who would rather opt for the latter, there is good news; leading design houses now have their iconic logos up for grabs. All you have to do is pick one! And if you are still not over Carrie Bradshaw’s prominent necklace from Sex and the City, there is always a letter necklace with (the first letter of) your name on it.

The Instagram-worthy charm jewellery is all the rage, which is all the more reason for you to invest in it. Playful motifs, storytelling elements, and archival designs give you the opportunity to make a selection from a wide array and choose what catches your eye. How to wear it best? Pair it alongside a gilded chain or flaunt it solo to keep the emphasis on your old-school charm(s).
