by Werneri Grundström

Gold, the epitome of luxury and sophistication, has been adored for centuries. Whether it's 18k gold or titanium, the allure of gold transcends time and fashion trends. At Nobbier, our gold jewelry collection is a testament to this enduring charm. But have you ever wondered, "What colors go with gold?" or "What is the best color combination for gold?"

What Colors Go With Gold

When it comes to colors that go well with gold, the options are surprisingly versatile. The classic choices are, of course, black and white, but gold also pairs well with earth tones, pastels, and even bold hues.

Color Type Colors Why It Works
Earth Tones Olive Green The natural warmth complements the richness of gold.
Rich Browns Adds a rustic charm, perfect for a boho-chic look.
Deep Blues Creates a striking contrast, adding depth to your look.
Pastels Soft Pinks Adds a feminine touch, making the gold stand out subtly.
Lilacs Offers a whimsical feel, perfect for a playful look.
Mint Greens Gives a fresh vibe, making it great for spring and summer.
Bold Hues Bright Reds Conjures a sense of luxury and drama, ideal for evening wear.
Royal Blues Keeps the palette sophisticated, great for formal events.
Vibrant Oranges Adds an energetic pop, perfect for a fun and lively look.

Accent Colors for Black and Gold

The combination of black and gold has been a cornerstone of luxury and sophistication for ages. Whether you're dressing for a gala event or decorating an upscale living room, the classic duo is an epitome of style. But while black and gold are beautiful on their own, introducing a third accent color can elevate the ensemble to new heights of complexity and elegance.

Why Accent Colors Matter

An accent color acts like the cherry on top of a sundae; it may not be the most substantial part, but it completes the picture. It can break the monotony, add depth, and bring a fresh element that makes the whole ensemble pop.

Top Accent Colors for Black and Gold

  1. Emerald Green: This shade brings a touch of nature into the palette. It's a vibrant yet sophisticated color that enriches the opulence of gold while maintaining harmony with black. Our bangles and bracelets range offers some exquisite emerald pieces that could serve as the perfect accent.

  2. Deep Red: If you're looking to add some drama and romance to your look, deep red is your go-to color. This hue complements the richness of gold and the intensity of black, making it a triple threat of elegance.

  3. Navy Blue: It offers a cooler contrast to the warm tones of gold, while its darkness resonates well with black. Navy blue exudes sophistication, making it a fantastic choice for formal events.

  4. Plum Purple: For a royal touch, consider incorporating plum or deep purple. This luxurious color pairs wonderfully with gold and adds a layer of mystery when set against black.

  5. Coral Pink: If you're aiming for a softer, more feminine touch, coral pink can be a refreshing contrast to the boldness of black and gold. It's a color that speaks to summertime elegance and youthful energy.

How to Integrate Accent Colors

  • Jewelry: One of the simplest ways to introduce an accent color is through your accessories. A statement piece from our best sellers collection can do wonders.

  • Footwear and Bags: These can be great avenues for introducing your chosen accent color. A navy blue clutch or deep red heels can transform your look.

  • Interior Accents: When it comes to home decor, think throw pillows, artwork, or even a feature wall in your chosen accent color.

  • Layering: Use our layering collection to mix and match pieces that incorporate your chosen accent colors, providing a multi-dimensional look that's sure to turn heads.

The art of matching gold jewelry with your outfit is more than just a fashion statement; it's an expression of your personality and style. The right pieces can elevate even the simplest attire into something remarkable. At Nobbier, we specialize in creating gold jewelry that not only stands the test of time but also complements a myriad of outfits. So let's delve into how to create that perfect ensemble.

Casual Outfits with Gold Accessories

You might think that gold jewelry is too grand for everyday wear, but it's all about how you style it. Picture yourself in a classic pair of jeans and a white tee. Now add a dainty gold necklace or some understated gold earrings to the mix. Voila, you've just turned a casual outfit into a chic ensemble.

  • Weekend Brunch: Add a pair of gold hoop earrings for a relaxed yet polished look.
  • Grocery Run: Stack some gold bangles to make even the most mundane tasks feel glamorous.

Gold Jewelry for a Professional Look

Navigating the world of corporate fashion can be tricky, but when you have the right pieces of jewelry, it becomes a breeze. A tailored black or navy blue suit can serve as a canvas for your gold jewelry.

  • Important Meeting: A sophisticated gold bracelet can add a touch of class without being distracting.
  • Casual Fridays: A simple gold chain necklace can make even a casual Friday outfit look put-together.

Black-Tie Event with Gold Accessories

When it comes to evening wear, gold jewelry is a go-to choice for a reason. The lustrous hue of gold pairs exceptionally well with luxurious fabrics like silk and velvet.

  • Cocktail Party: Imagine a red silk dress paired with an intricate gold necklace and matching gold earrings. You're bound to be the center of attention.
  • Black-Tie Event: An emerald green gown or little black dress complemented by a stunning set of gold jewelry from our best-sellers collection can make you the belle of the ball.

Gold Accessories with Seasonal Outfits

The change in seasons often inspires a change in wardrobe, and your gold jewelry should be no exception.

  • Spring and Summer: Lighter fabrics and brighter colors allow for more playful jewelry choices. Think layering with different textures and styles.
  • Autumn and Winter: The darker, richer colors of these seasons offer a beautiful backdrop for your gold jewelry. Pieces with intricate designs or embedded stones can really shine.

Do Gold and Grey Go Together?

Absolutely, gold and grey make for a striking pair that exudes understated elegance. While gold is synonymous with opulence and warmth, grey serves as the neutral backdrop that allows the gold to truly shine. This harmonious blend strikes the perfect balance, with the richness of gold offset by the subtlety of grey, creating a look that is both modern and timeless.

The versatility of grey lends itself beautifully to various shades and finishes of gold, whether you prefer a matte finish or a high-gloss sheen. This juxtaposition elevates any ensemble or interior space, imbuing it with a level of sophistication that's hard to overlook.

Layer Gold Jewelry with Any Outfit Color

Factors for Harmonious Layering Description Expert Tips
Color Match for Gold Coordinate the dominant colors in your outfit with your gold jewelry for a cohesive look. Mixing 18k gold with platinum can offer a balanced yet striking palette. Start with just two or three pieces that go well together for an easier entry into the world of layering.
Metal Mix Don't shy away from mixing metals. A combination of 18k gold and platinum can create an interesting visual dynamic. Odd numbers like three, five, or seven layers often create a more balanced and visually pleasing look.
Texture Play Mix and match different textures, like smooth, polished pieces with textured or engraved items. Balance is key. Don’t overload one side with heavy pieces; distribute the weight and visual load.
Length and Size Vary the lengths and sizes of your necklaces or bracelets. Start with a shorter piece and work your way down. If new to layering, begin with simpler, more delicate pieces and gradually introduce more complex layers.
Personalized Pieces Incorporate pieces that hold sentimental value or personal meaning to make your layered look unique. Feel free to mix and match pieces from various Nobbier collections like earrings and rings.
Statement vs. Subtlety Decide whether one piece will be the focal point or if all pieces will contribute to a balanced look. Keep experimenting. The rules of layering are not set in stone. Listen to your intuition and let your unique style shine.

Conclusion

In essence, the art of color-matching your gold jewelry lies in understanding the versatility of gold and how it interacts with different hues. From classic combinations like black and gold to more adventurous palettes involving grey or vibrant colors, the options are endless. By following these guidelines and exploring Nobbier's extensive collections, you're well on your way to curating a look that's uniquely yours—where timeless elegance meets Scandinavian charm.
