My Favorite Jewelry Pieces You Guys Ask Me About All the Time – Fine Gold & Fashion Jewelry

As you guys have probably seen – I love to mix my everyday fine gold jewelry pieces that go with everything with fun, fashion jewelry. But I have a few 18k gold pieces that I literally never take off, even swimming in the ocean, showering, hot tubbing, you name it.

I’ve always been a gold jewelry kinda girl – I seriously once contemplated breaking up with my high school boyfriend because he gifted me a silver heart necklace. I knew right there and then I knew we had no future. I mean, come on. Do you even know me?

Yellow gold jewelry is so elegant, timeless, and stunning that it’s always what I ask for for every big birthday, anniversary, or Christmas present. If you’re a gold girl like me, this post is for you. 

Here are all the jewelry pieces you guys have seen me wear on @JetsetChristina on Instagram, and have been asking about lately, as well as some under $100 deals on similar pieces I love!

My everyday jewelry I never take off:

This is the bracelet I always wear and never take off:


David Yurman chain gold link bracelet

I was gifted this bracelet on my 21st birthday and it’s hands down my favorite piece of jewelry I own (except for my engagement ring of course!!!!!) This bracelet has been to 6 continents, swam in countless oceans and infinity pools with me, and NEVER comes off. It’s so high quality and goes with every outfit – it’s the best of the best. 

There’s also this thinner version by the same brand, that’s 1/4 the price! and free returns.

David Yurman Stax Oval Link 18K Gold Bracelet

And here is a less expensive version of my bracelet (still all gold, which means you can wear it in the ocean and never take it off!)

The Karen Lazar 14K yellow gold chain bracelet – currently on sale! And 10% off extra with the code JETSET


The other bracelets I always wear with that, and am obsessed with right now.

My Diamond Tennis Bracelets

Diamond Aupair is AMAZING – she’s a custom jeweler and I am so impressed with her stuff. She can make anything you dream of! But she also has ready-to-buy styles like these bouncing diamond tennis bracelets – I absolutely love mine. Tell Hallie the designer that I sent you!!!!!!



I wear the 3mm and the 2mm, I have a size 6.5 and have a pretty small-to-normal sized wrist. They explain how to measure your wrist very easily on the site! Love these bracelets because they’re inexpensive but I can still wear them swimming without rusting! Don’t forget to use the code JETSET for 10% off!


David Yurman Cablespira Bracelet in 18K Gold with Diamonds, 3mm

My right hand ring


Marco Bicego 18K Yellow Gold Jaipur Color Gemstone Stackable Ring

Not linking my engagement ring, because Kenny had that custom-designed for me when he proposed in Bali!

My favorite gold necklaces for layering:

Saks Fifth Avenue Collection 14K Yellow Gold Herringbone Chain Necklace/16-18" 

This beautiful gold herringbone necklace is 30% off right now – highly recommend it! It’s what I wore all throughout my trip to Bora Bora. I love that it’s real gold, so I can wear it in the ocean, shower, etc as much as I want! Goes with everything!

14k Yellow Gold Rectangular Link Chain


My two fine jewelry necklaces I sometimes wear:

Bezel-Set Round Diamond Solitaire Pendan

I like how on Angara you can easily customize the metal (silver, rose gold, gold) and the size of the diamond. 

also there’s a cute $65 knockoff version with a cubic zirconia here


IPPOLITA 18K Yellow Gold Lollipop Turquoise Mini Pendant Necklace with Pavé Diamonds

I love Ippolita jewelry so much – and I’ve always loved blue topaz – it’s my birthstone, and reminds me of the ocean, and my alma mater of UNC Chapel Hill. 

The pearl drop gold earrings I wore at my bachelorette party and have been wearing for all kinds of bride-to-be outfits for various wedding events:


Other fun bridal earrings I’ve bought lately (we’re getting married in Maui so I’m obsessed with the shells!)

SHASHI Eden EarringJennifer Behr Violet Dangle Earrings


Under $150 fashion jewelry I love currently:

MIRANDA FRYE Kate Bracelet

Jenny Bird Icon Large Hoop Earrings






Amber Sceats X REVOLVE Athens Necklace Jenny Bird Mithras Necklace

A good gold coin necklace is the perfect accessory to all of your summer bikinis. I love both of these two a lot. Jennybird’s is a little brighter gold, whereas Amber Sceats is a little more vintage looking. 

petit moments Terrain Hoop Earring in Gold

Jenny Bird Francis Choker

love this gold chain choker from Jennybird! One of my favorite jewelry brands (I gifted each of my bridesmaids a piece of Jennybird jewelry that I picked out for them in their bridesmaid proposal boxes!).

Jenny Bird Double Carter Choker

Also love this double chain gold choker from Jennybird too! I always love finding good jewelry on Revolve because they do such easy returns – they include the return label in your package – so you can try it on at home and decide if you want to keep it. 


Jenny Bird Mithras Necklace


I was gifted these hoops with my married monogram for my engagement and they have become a STAPLE in almost every outfit I put on. They’re SUCH good hoops, and I love that I have one with a C and one with an H (my new married name initials!) Such a cute gift idea for bridesmaids, or anyone that just got engaged! 

14K Yellow gold filled single strand necklaces

Under $50 jewelry I love lately:

14k Gold Herringbone Snake Chain

LAGOS Caviar Gold Collection 18K Gold Beaded Bracelet, 3mm

It’s super similar to my Ippolita necklace, but I love this DY one too.
