This summer, play it cool with layers of gold necklaces, the chicest way to elevate your summer basics 

When it comes to jewellery it’s easy to get rest on your laurels, and by laurels we mean rest on the pieces you put on every morning like uniform: heirloom rings passed down from your family, a stack of trinket bracelets you’ve collected over the years, a watch you can’t function without, or the necklace you got for you 21st birthday and haven’t taken off since. Jewellery forms a huge part of our personal identity, but the best part is you can reinvent your style instantly with a few, layered up additions.

Jewellery is a simple way to elevate your everyday look without having to wear huge statement pieces. Got a plain white T-shirt you wear with jeans but want to make it more special? Layer in some fine gold necklaces and you’re ready to take that T-shirt to new levels. The same works when you want to embellish a summer dress, a button-down shirt and even your beachwear. 

With gold coin necklaces making a huge comeback this summer, mix up your offering of Roman-looking artefacts along with letter pendants, dainty chokers and summer shells for the chicest summer neckline.
