Going Exotic With Gold

I love it when jewelry tells a story. And these gorgeous pieces from Julie Vos make me daydream about spice-scented markets and luxurious dressing rooms and exotic destinations.

I’ve been loyal to silver for years now, but this fall I’ve fallen hard for gold.


And Julie Vos does so gold so beautifully, creating quietly dramatic conversation pieces from nickel-free brass covered in 24K gold and accented with semi-precious stones.

Although her materials sound like something from an alchemist’s workshop (gold, blue quartz, turquoise, labradorite, moonstone, pearls and aqua chalcedony) the results are striking and modern.

So when Julie’s people asked if they could send me some of her pieces to style, I had a hard time choosing!


I adored this dramatic statement necklace from the Baroque Collection right away. It looks like a treasure from a archeological dig, but it still has an easy, bohemian vibe that I love.

A lot of Julie Vos jewelry is available with your choice of stones, which allows for a greater range of customization. I gravitated toward the labradorite (perfect for a girl who loves black and smokey grays) but moonstone, aqua chalcedony and blue quartz are also available.

I shocked myself by falling for a pair of pearl earrings from the same Baroque collection.

Pearls rarely inspire me — they’re so lady — but these pearl drop earrings with labradorite accents are unlike anything I’ve ever seen, delicate and dramatic all at once.


This weighty turquoise ring is such a strong piece. Turquoise looks so lux paired with gold instead of the usual silver.

And now that I’ve started wearing a gold ring again, I think I’m going to have to get some new ones to go with it!
