While Amazon might not be the first place you think of when it comes to jewelry, it turns out that the massive e-retailer has quite the selection. Particularly if you’re wanting to try your hand at a trend, it’s a great place to start—and for those wanting to drop a bit more on an investment piece, you can find jewelry from higher-end lines like Kate Spade New York and Ross-Simons.
Along with style, when shopping for gold jewelry on Amazon, you’ll want to keep material and finish top of mind. No one wants to get a rash or green skin from jewelry, so be sure to opt for pieces that are either solid gold or gold that’s been plated over a non-alloyed metal like sterling silver or stainless steel. This will help ensure that your piece lasts for longer than just a season.
With that in mind, keep reading for the best gold jewelry pieces on Amazon, along with some help from stylist Amanda Wood.
