Gold and Silver Tone Necklaces

Every civilisation throughout history has had a love affair with gold. Its brilliance never tarnishes or dims, leading some ancient peoples to consider it a sacred metal. Kings and queens crowned themselves with gold. The wealthy adorned themselves with it. Everyone wanted more of it, but only modern technology has made gold accessible for everyday wear. Gold plating lets you enjoy the lustrous beauty of real gold in bold, dramatic styles that still leave room in your budget for matching earrings. Gold tone necklaces and pendants look and feel just as rich as solid gold, but at a price so affordable that you can drape yourself with it in regal abundance.

By itself, a gold chain necklace looks simply striking with all your casual clothes. Reflective gold goes with every colour you wear, so a gold chain is as versatile as it is lovely. When you want to turn up the drama for evening, add another rope or two of gold or choose a larger collar design that showcases your sense of style. Rope-like and coin necklaces have timeless appeal, while smooth or textured shapes in cut metal and organic forms look elegantly contemporary.


Gold Tone Necklaces

Gold also plays nicely with other materials. Gilded links alternating with beads or pearls on long chains look as fresh today as when Coco Chanel first used them to accent her striking new designs. Pairing gold with silver in the same piece brings your entire jewellery wardrobe together; it's an elegant answer to the question of whether to choose gold or silver. Three-coloured gold jewellery that incorporates yellow, white and rose gold in the same necklace gives you even greater versatility. 

Make gold the foundation for your jewellery wardrobe, and you'll always have something to wear. A stunning gold pendant necklace makes a statement all by itself or with a pair of gold bangle bracelets to balance it. A gold lariat necklace adjusts to work with any neckline from turtlenecks to plunging wraps. A wrapped or knotted collar in gold looks smart at the office with a jewel-necked sweater set or with a crisp button-down top. 

Eminently wearable and always affordable, gold tone necklaces can take you anywhere. 


Silver Tone Necklaces

Silver metals have an elegant purity that even lustrous gold can't match. Whether it's polished to a mirror-bright shine or brushed to a satin-like finish, silver jewellery naturally takes on the tones of the colours surrounding it; a silver-toned necklace will always match what you're wearing. The cool beauty of silver lends itself to sleek contemporary designs that complement sophisticated solids or accent geometric prints. In antiqued finishes, silver tones can also echo vintage designs that still look fresh today.

The unusual allure of a silver necklace instead of the expected gold is eye-catching already, but when you combine silver tones with faceted crystals, you'll stand out in any crowd. A silver necklace lit with dazzling crystals makes a gorgeous centerpiece for any formal outfit, but it looks especially beautiful with black. Against dark colours, silver and crystals call to mind a starry night sky. With pale pastels, the same piece takes on an icy beauty wholly unlike gold's sunny gleam. 

As refined as it may often appear, silver has another side to it that's decidedly closer to the fashion edge. The biker chic trend finds its expression in a thick silver chain necklace with an assortment of chunky silver bracelets. Silver also resonates with ethnic overtones in richly patterned styles from around the world. Mexico and India produce some of the most beautiful silver necklaces, but you'll find designs in silver that evoke all manner of distant lands. A silver pendant necklace with exotic flair is beautiful in any language. 

Because its subtle shine lends it so well to wearing with any colour, silver tone necklaces inspire jewellery designers to flights of fancy with shapes and proportions. Designs that might look overwhelming in gold tones are resplendent in silver. Natural forms such as flowers or feathers look perfectly polished in silver. Chain necklaces with big, bold links are in proportion when they're cast in gleaming silver metals. Even the most massive silver necklaces look elegant, not ostentatious; they're an excellent choice when you want to wear a statement piece of jewellery without upstaging the rest of your look. 

From the fun and funky appeal of silver pendants to the gorgeous white radiance of more substantial silver necklaces, silver tone jewellery fits your style.
