Not only does gold jewelry amplify a summer tan or glow, it also gives the rest of your outfit a sense of glamour and luxury. Pulling off gold is a lot easier than other metals as golden tones typically flatter all skin tones. Because gold feels luxe, you can pile the metal on with as much freedom as you'd like. However, if you find yourself mixing gold jewelry with different metals or stones, try to focus on one category, such as earrings or a necklace, while keeping the rest of your accessories minimal or bare.
