OK, so I’m weird about some things. One of them being jewelry. I’m partial to yellow gold, but I’m starting to think that I look better in silver tones than yellow gold. This is a problem because my brain requires my metals to match each other (though I don’t think that my engagement ring and wedding band will have to match all my other jewelry every day).
I think I liked yellow gold because it blends into my skin tone more, but silver really sparkles against it. Boo. My favorite everyday earrings are yellow gold and silver together, so those are fine to wear with the magen dovid necklace I wear everyday.
Anyway, my concern is with this metals-must-match thing that’s in my head. My shoes have TINY gold buckles on them, and the tiara I have is on gold plated wire, but it blends into my hair and I REALLY want some sparkle on my head. Then I went and wore silver dangly earrings to my cousin’s wedding last weekend (sorry, forgot to take a photo of myself) and my pearls with the white gold clasp, and now I want to wear silver! But gold is better with ivory.
Stupid things to fret about, no? I’ll stick with what I have and gold tones, because I think they’re more “me” even if silver stands out more. Now, I want to go to the new bead store here in Boulder and try and make earrings like these, that match my tiara, but with gold wires (you know, so they match…..):
