THE NEW GOLD STANDARD… IS FAR FROM STANDARD
Unexpected finishes and pairings make traditional yellow gold jewellery cool.
What’s an Asian-centric edition without some gold jewellery? But if you think that we’re going to spotlight some of that traditionally gaudy yellow variety... we really need to talk. More our vibe: pieces like Bulgari’s Octo Finissimo watch, which now comes in pink gold that’s been sandblasted for an unexpected matte finish, the brand’s gypsy chic Serpenti Viper rings that pair – for the first time – gold with groovy malachite, and Cartier’s recently debuted nuts-and-bolts-inspired Ecru de Cartier bracelet in pink or white gold. Remember: The stuff here isn’t for crazy rich Asians per se, but they are for crazy cool ones.
