Casual or Formal 14k Gold Necklace

A 14k gold necklace is a must-have for almost every occasion, no matter how casual. Many women don't feel "dressed" without a pair of gold earrings, a plain bangle, and at least a simple gold chain necklace. For thousands of years, jewelry was worn only by the wealthier classes, but today, everyone can find affordable quality jewelry.

Where once a 14k gold necklace was only in a collection of a lady of the nobility, modern women may own several different styles for everyday wear and more for special occasions. From a domed Omega gold necklace to an elaborate Byzantine necklace, women can select from the latest trends and fashions in jewelry as well as clothing. It's easy to go from jeans in the day to formal wear at night with just a dip into the jewelry box.

Styles in Jewelry

Recent trends in jewelry revolve around two-tone designs in yellow and white gold that are incorporated into classic modern styles, such as Byzantine and Stampato. Byzantine is an ornate style, but it can be made even more elegant with the addition of graduated weavings and polished, mirrored surfaces. Set with accent stones--rubies, diamonds, blue sapphires--Byzantine necklaces and bracelets become jewelry fit for a queen.

Hearts are always favorites, and that holds true for heart pendants in a 14k gold necklace. Here again, two-tone hearts are popular. Such distinctive designs as a cubic zirconia heart pendant with red enamel heart within , or a Cz heart pendant with dolphins, create special jewelry for special occasions. A Tiffany style heart links necklace in 14k yellow gold is a particularly charming design that captures the spirit of heart jewelry.
