At some point (probably around 2002), gold jewelry started to creep in....but it was only cheap, once in a while stuff. As the years went on, I bought more and more costume jewelry and started to wear my grandma's previously scoffed gold jewelry.
Now? Well, I am obsessed. Besides my engagement ring and wedding ring, which are platinum and white gold, all I wear is yellow gold or copper toned jewelry. Or jewelry with gold and copper accents. All my silver pieces are jammed at the bottom of my jewelry box, waiting for the day when it might be worn again.
