Golden Days: My Jewelry Collection

What can I say? I adore gold jewelry. My collection has grown immensely over the past few months. I feel very attached to my golden jewelry. Silver just never felt right on me. My jewelry reminds me of my Italian grandmother. She donned her medallion and cross necklaces every single day. A symbol of faith, but also representation of her classic elegance. From vintage treasures, instagram IT-brands, to family heirlooms- here's my little collection. (Which I know will continue to grow over time). 
My secret weapon: Etsy, and Ebay is my one stop shop for vintage clip on earrings. (I have tried to have my ears pierced many times, but they always close up.) The bigger the better, when it comes to this item of jewelry. I am saving up for a Chanel clip on set. My current favorite pair: Rounded braided circles with big pearls in the center. I dig the big flashy 80's sensibility to this accessory. 
Brands to know: My number one favorite jewelry line, Missoma London. Especially their collection with the always inspiring Lucy Williams. The collection was inspired by Roman coins, and there is an antique influence to all the pieces. I love layering these pieces especially the tiny medallion choker. The quality of the jewelry feels amazing to wear as well. By far worth the investment! I wear the large horn necklace, the beaded coin necklace, the beaded coin legion necklace, and the beaded coin ring. 
Honorable mentions: Emueroe (local LA designer. Gorgeous unique + affordable pieces). The 2 Bandits (Edgy, boho style jewelry. I love their chokers, and even some of their silver pieces.) Shashi (Brand that is always caught up on the trends, at budget friendly prices.)
Family Heirlooms: Recently, my mother passed down some gold family heirloom pieces. She gave me a tiny gold choker that my father gave to her. I was raised Catholic, so I was also passed down a cross from my Great Grandmother Stella on my mother's side, and a cross from my Italian grandmother from my father's side. These pieces are the most special to me. I stopped wearing them everyday, so that they remain in good condition. 
What is in your jewelry collection? Pro tip: When I travel, I carry my jewelry in a macaron box. It is tiny, and can fit in my carry on backpack (just incase my luggage gets lost). My necklaces never get tangled, and it also can store my watches + rings + earrings as well.
