I don’t really consider myself to be a “jewelry girl,” mostly because big costume pieces have always felt a little overwhelming for my personal style. It’s reasons like this why I love AuRate New York so much. Based in New York City (obviously),  the company offers a selection of simple and sophisticated pieces in gold. The pieces, specifically the AuRate New York Gold Bar Necklace, have the ability to add a little bling to any outfit without completely stealing the show (or weighing you down).

The AuRate New York Gold Bar Necklace is completely customizable. The piece features a simple gold chain with a simple horizontal gold bar. It’s available in two different length options, so you can wear it closer to your collar-bone or lower down on your chest, and is available in 14-karat yellow gold, 14-karat rose gold, 14-karat white gold, 18-karat yellow gold, 18-karat rose gold, and 18-karat white gold. From the office to casual lounging and after work drinks, the piece is as versatile as it is timeless.

The AuRate New York Gold Bar Necklace is a great fit for a workday look. While it makes sense to pair a necklace with a more open neckline (see examples below), a turtleneck or mock turtleneck can look just as nice. The Phase Eight Abbey Belted Dress has a black top, which allows the delicate necklace to really pop. Plus, the whole outfit, which features fun twists on classic accessories, is polished and easy to wear.

An off the shoulder top is the perfect opportunity to done a classic necklace. This outfit features a cozy sweater and loafers, olive-green skinny jeans, and a convenient black backpack. Adding a minimal necklace with these comfy pieces creates a laid back outfit that is still put together. It’s simple, yet effective, and it styles the outfit for Netflix and chill, a trip to the apple orchard, and more.

Spicing things up with lace, leather, and fur, the AuRate New York Gold Bar Necklace can easily transition to a going out look. Surprise! Navy and blue can mix, and they actually look really great together, especially with a touch of gold. The lace v-neckline of the dress and fur collar of the jacket add super interesting and funky details to the outfit. Pairing the necklace with the look adds just a little extra pizazz for a night of dancing, drinks, and fun.
