The right accessories can help you achieve the quiet luxury look. And they don’t have to be expensive either. They just need to look expensive. Choosing gold-filled jewellery over solid gold can be an easy way to cop a few more pieces than you budgeted for. And good news: you can wear said pieces everywhere you go — in the shower, to bed or out for dinner with your friends — without worrying if it’ll last.
If you’re looking a super affordable option, gold vermeil might be your best bet. Instead of using heat and pressure to bond the gold to the base like gold-filling, gold vermeil uses electroplating to layer a micro thin piece of gold over silver.
So, what’s the difference between gold-filled and gold vermeil jewellery, anyway? According to jewellery brand Kellective by Nikki founder, Nikki Kelly, they appear the same when initially purchased. “The test would usually be time as gold vermeil won’t wear as well as gold filled,” she says.
All in all, the two production styles give us more options to choose from when trying to elevate our ‘fits. Ahead, you’ll find our gold-filled jewellery picks that will give you the #StealthWealth aesthetic that TikTok is frothing over.
Ocean Hanging Pearl Necklace
Dress up your neutrals with this Ocean Hanging Pearl Necklace ($90) from Kellective by Nikki. The gold-filled chain is accented with 6 freshwater pearls that will nicely elevate a scoop necked top.
The Cindy Bracelet ($149) doesn’t draw attention when worn but it does help to tie your outfit together. It’s a sneaky piece of gold-filled jewellery that looks deceivingly expensive.
Looking for a pair of bigger earrings that ‘fit the stealth wealth aesthetic? Check out the Costa Hoops ($139) from Reliquia. Although they are quite large, the thin, droop style gives it a sleek finish and the front-facing silhouette makes them appear like a solid line of gold.
Take inspiration from the quiet luxury queen, Shiv Roy, played by Sarah Snook in HBO’s “Succession”, and dress up your black turtle neck with a small pendant and chain like SLANI’s Birthstone Necklace (from $89).
Love Isabelle’s Signet Ring ($129) is perfect for everyday wear. The classic shape and gold-filled production make it a timeless buy that you can use season after season.
Dora Yellow Huggie Earring
Huggies are an everyday earring, and the NAJO Dora Yellow Gold Huggie Earring ($99)are a great option for them. These huggies are plated sterling silver in yellow gold, with a rounded shape inspired by soft light.
