Last month was MAY IS GOLD MONTH, where I participated in an interivew about jewelry and gold–my two favorite things! The website also interviewed several other tastemakers with the same interview questions, all of which are really interesting to read! Check out my interview here (and below):
WHAT ARE THE HOTTEST TRENDS IN JEWELRY?
Many red carpet jewelry trends are translating to every day wear – like pinky rings, bold gemstones, opaque stones, geometric inspired jewels and one-of-a-kind pieces.
HOW DOES THIS TRANSLATE TO GOLD?
Yellow Gold has made its way back into the #1 spot as the preferred metal of consumers. I think people are enjoying its richness in hue and how it looks great with so many skin tones. It also pairs beautifully with so many gemstones.
WHAT MUST HAVE TRENDS IN KARAT GOLD ARE YOU SEEING FOR FALL 2014?
Stackable and collectible rings in 14k Yellow Gold are huge hits for many age groups. The affordability of the thinner rings, combined with the timeless investment of fine Gold is both intelligent and trendy!
WHAT IS THE PERFECT “GOLD” GIFT?
Pieces that are personalized in some way – like an engraving or special birthstone – are perfect Gold gifts. I also love the abundance of Gold inspired charity jewelry that is out in the marketplace.
WHAT (CLASSIC) GOLD PIECES SHOULD EVERY WOMAN OWN?
A really cool statement ring that has a story behind it. Maybe it’s antique or vintage… if it makes people stop and ask, it is a totally necessary essential!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF GOLD JEWELRY AND WHY?
In December of 2012 my grandfather passed away. My grandmother gave me their wedding bands from 1956 when they were married in their homeland of Italy. They are 18K Yellow Gold and have beautiful engravings on the insides of each.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT KARAT GOLD?
Gold has such a remarkable, unbelievable history. It has an incredible allure that is deeply rooted. If taken care of properly, a piece of Gold jewelry can last hundreds of years. I love how it can be passed down through generations and continue to be even more valuable year after year.
