Gold Rush

What does your necklace really say about you?

We’re digging through grandma’s glory box to find ancient relics to wear now. Whether it’s sentimental feels or a little alchemy at play, the magnetism of the gold pendent has us under its spell. These eternal favourites with a modern zest are the antithesis to fast fashion. Our pull to the earth’s precious metals seems to be instinctive given the current state of the planet. Forever is trending as we try to remedy our environment with KeepCups and reusable grocery bags. So what’s more healing than gold against the heart. It’s what vitalises the water after all. Or so the shamans say. Everything from EMF protection to chakra balancing has been attributed to a golden gesture hung around the neck. It’s no coincidence that a number of great civilisations like the Mayans and ancient Egypt were serious about their glowing talismans. Even latest research suggests that there might be a deeper meaning to our heirlooms with human frequencies binding to heavy metals. If you thought cleansing your crystals were a thing, google energising your jewellery.

Slightly more crude than the barely-there silversmith movement, pendant necklaces are all about elegant bling.

Accessories we want to wear everyday and not take off for months at a time but still express who we are inside. Our zodiacs, our mantras, our gemstones, our heroes, and our history. We’ve unearthed these gold discoveries just for you.

Divine intervention

Ride the devotions of cult label Reliquia who has us praising their update on the 90s craze for religious motifs. Take your pick between Virgin Mary engravings and Queen Nefertiti. Next level girl power.

Full circle

At some point carrying your gold coin on you was more a security choice rather than a fashion moment but nowadays it just looks cool AF. But maybe in this economic climate it’s also relevant. Amber Sceats and Luv Aj make realistic relics of intricately carved currency.

By Charlotte Mini Lotus Necklace

Wear your mantra

By Charlotte brings inner peace to your accessory collection. In the know with the yogini crowd, these good luck charms feel more futuristic rather than ancient. Align your pendent choice with your intentions: eternal harmony, follow your dreams or purity.
