The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Gold jewelry has been a sign of wealth, status and style for centuries. Whether engagement rings, necklaces or bracelets, gold represents elegance and durability. Here you will find an overview of the 10 most popular types of gold jewelry with their special features.

Gold is one of the most precious and valuable metals in the world. It is rare, enduring and timelessly beautiful. So it’s no wonder that gold jewelry has always been a status symbol and is often given as a gift.

Modern pieces of gold jewelry are available in various alloys, shapes and with gemstones or other decorations. The popularity of certain types of jewelry also corresponds to certain trends.

1. Engagement rings

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

The engagement ring is probably the most romantic piece of jewelry ever. It is usually made of white, yellow or rose gold with a diamond or other gemstone set in it.

Engagement rings are a promise for the future together and are presented when you propose marriage. They are therefore very emotionally charged. So it’s no wonder that engagement rings are at the top of the popularity scale.

2. Wedding rings

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

If the wedding has actually taken place, wedding rings are the logical consequence. They symbolize marriage and are also very popular.

Wedding rings are available in various gold variants, some with engravings, patterns or small stones. Simple, narrow ring shapes are currently very popular. Many couples even wear rings that look the same.

3. Necklaces

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

A subtle or ostentatious necklace accentuates the neck and brightens the complexion. Gold chains are therefore very popular among women of all ages.

Classic variants include the diamond necklace, the heart necklace or the necklace with a pendant. Multi-row necklaces or those with pendants in the shape of letters are particularly popular at the moment.

4. Bracelets

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Whether a simple tennis bracelet or one with links, stones or engravings – bracelets draw attention to the beautifully shaped forearms.

Flexible gold bracelets that adapt to the shape of your arm are currently popular. They look particularly elegant, but are still robust for everyday use. Bracelets with a magnifying glass to enlarge text are also trendy now.

5. Earrings

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Hardly any other accessory is as diverse as earrings. Whether as plugs, hoop earrings, clips or with hanging pendants – there are hardly any limits to creativity when it comes to earrings.

Currently particularly popular are several small stones on delicate hooks for hanging. They are playful and romantic at the same time. Larger hoop earrings are also coming back into fashion.

6. Pendentif 

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

A pendant on a delicate chain simply puts you in a good mood. It attracts attention and can be changed to suit your mood.

Pendants in the shape of hearts, leaves or drops as well as animal motifs are currently particularly popular. They can be small and discreet or they can be ostentatious.

7. Bangles

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Whether worn as a set or individually – bangles flatter the arm in a particularly luxurious way. Gold bangles exude something exotic or bohemian chic.

Wide tires, which can be several centimeters wide, are currently increasingly becoming fashionable. You look powerful and confident. Snake and chain bangles also continue to be popular.

8. Toe rings

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Toe rings are small, usually simple rings for the toes. They can be decorated with small stones, but are often simply smooth rings made of white, yellow or rose gold.

This discreet jewelry for feet is very trendy. Toe rings look particularly seductive with sandals or barefoot. And they are also comfortable to wear.

9. Thumb rings

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Thumb rings – as the name suggests – decorate the thumb. They are often slightly wider than classic rings and are often displayed prominently.

Thumb rings with smooth or engraved surfaces and small stones are currently very popular. In a sense, they are statement rings for the thumb.

10. Anklets

The 10 most popular types of gold jewelry

Dainty anklets around the ankle are currently an absolute fashion trend. They make legs appear even more feminine and playful.

There are now many variations of anklets, with small pendants or stones. Several fine chains next to each other are particularly popular. They can also be wonderfully combined with toe rings.

Whether it’s a glittering diamond necklace or a subtle anklet – gold jewelry is and remains very popular. It underlines femininity, signals style and at the same time has lasting value.

Gold is timelessly beautiful and its fascination remains unbroken. So it’s no wonder that gold jewelry is still very popular and sought after.

Frequently asked Questions

How do you properly care for gold jewelry?

It is best to clean gold jewelry from time to time with lukewarm water and a little detergent. Under no circumstances should you use hard brushes or chemical cleaners. After wearing, simply wipe with a soft cloth.

How much does a gram of gold cost?

The price of gold is subject to constant fluctuations. A gram of fine gold currently costs around 50-60 euros, depending on the alloy. The value of a piece of gold jewelry depends on its weight and workmanship.
