Holiday Gift Guide: Golden Goddess #LoveGold


My first Holiday Gift Guide is dedicated to the Golden Goddess!

1- Black & Gold Holiday dress, perfect for a festive holiday party! from Shopbop

2- If you love gold, you must accessorize your iPhone in gold too.  Love this gold panther iPhone case from NastyGal

3- Completely obsessed with these black and gold sunglasses, handmade from Maggi Simpkins

4- This 18k yellow gold flower and diamond two-finger ring designed by Elisa Solomon is such a statement piece. It can be worn alone or stacked, and is very on-trend, from Elisa Solomon

5- Most kids recognize that coal for Christmas means they have been bad all year! Well I say we mix that up by saying if you get some Pyrite in your stocking, you've been extra good!  (or anything GOLD)

6- Vintage Hermes from the 1980s! Love this necklace in 18k yellow gold--it would look so good with many of the trends in fashion that are currently happening, from 1stdibs, A. Brandt & Son

7- Getting a new, fresh notebook to jot down all your thoughts, ideas, and lists for the new year is a perfect gift. This one is handmade with gold leaf! from Etsy (shop owner- PaperJayneDebbie)

8- Monique Péan is such an amazing designer, most of her pieces are set with incredible fossilzed bones or rare dinosaur bones. I love this simplified stacking ring, called the Ascent ring in 18k and a hint of diamonds, from Barneys

9- Having a mega cat-claw around your finger, set with black diamonds?! Sign me up! Love this design from Graziela Gems

10- Jennie Kwon makes the coolest little stacking rings, which make the perfect mix & match gifts! This is the type of gift where it's ok to get duplicates! Diamond & Square Milli Rings from Jennie Kwon Designs

11- A little golden Van Cleef & Arpels bedside table clock, the best way to bring a little piece from home while traveling. Love the twisted rope design, all done in 18k yellow gold from 1stdibs, Botier

12- Some golden wings to deck your ears this holiday season!  I love these from Jack Vartanian done in 18k yellow gold.
