Silver Lockets And Pendants Go With Any Outfit

These days, it seems that gold is becoming less and less popular with jewellery buyers. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that the price of gold has been shooting through the roof for well over a year now. In fact, it is continuing to hit record highs at least once a month. This is probably not a situation that will last very long, but as long as it continues, it will drive down demand for gold, because jewellers will have to pay more for the raw gold from which to create their masterpieces, and much of this cost will (of course) be passed on to you, the consumer.

But don’t fret, this isn’t a bad thing at all. In fact, we think it is high time that people got a break from gold. For far too long, gold has been the primary metal of the jewellery world, and to be frank we think that the whole gold craze is getting kind of old. Wait, no, scratch that – it has BEEN old for at least a few decades now, if not centuries. These days, gold is an excuse for true creativity.

Anyone who is unoriginal in their taste in jewellery generally just goes out and buys the first derivative gold chain or bracelet or whatever they can find – and there are tons of these generic gold items, because they are easy for jewellers to mass manufacture.
The other thing about gold is that it doesn’t really dress well. It’s too flashy, too bright, and too obnoxious – it detracts from an outfit, rather than adding to it. There are very few colours that work with gold, except perhaps black – and even a gold pendant on a black dress will look overpoweringly bad. A silver pendant, on the other hand – or a silver locket – will go with almost anything, because silver is a much more subtle metal, whereas gold does not even understand the meaning of subtle.
