Gold Necklaces for Girly Girls, Not Grandmas

Share Article

Sharma Designs dusts the dowdy off gold jewelry with the launch of “Goddess in Gold,” a new line of one-of-a-kind gold necklaces. Featuring semi-precious stone, wood and shell accents and pendants, this line was designed to transition seamlessly from the corner office to the corner hotspot.

Used to be that gold jewelry, just like the white hair puff, was a style reserved for grandmas. Not so anymore (for the gold jewelry, that is). With the September 25th launch of their latest line of one-of-a-kind necklaces, “Golden Goddess,” Sharma Designs is ushering in a new era of gold jewelry that will help young professional women bridge the gap between office-appropriate and out-on-the-town accessorizing.

When gold was pronounced the new metal du jour by recent trend watchers, Sharma Designs owner and designer, Sharla Oliveri, had to laugh -- once again, her clients were ahead of the curve. Eager for work-appropriate jewelry that wouldn’t squelch their personality, many have been gold-curious for quite some time.

Fitting right in line with Sharma Designs’ other personality-driven lines -- Bold and Brassy, Dainty Diva’s, Deliciously Dark, Earthy Elegance, Fabulous and Funky, and Stunning Stones -- “Golden Goddess” embodies the power-driven yet fun personality of today’s young career woman. Debuting with 15 one-of-a-kind necklaces that feature semi-precious stone, wood, and shell pendants and accents on gold-filled chain, the “Golden Goddess” necklaces are simple and streamlined with a twist. While some of the designs play with symmetry, others juxtapose heaviness (think Onyx) with the inherent lightness of the gold chain. Whatever the case, true to Sharma Designs’ policy, no two are ever exactly alike.

As Oliveri sees it, a gold rush has been a long time coming, “Gold’s gotten a bum rap for long enough, as far as I’m concerned. Frankly, you say ‘gold jewelry’ to most people and it conjures up images of oversized, bright -- and, let’s face it, heinous -- old lady baubles. With ‘Golden Goddess,’ it was exciting to show young women how gold can be dainty and understated -- even sexy. It was so rewarding to create a line that conveys classic elegance and still has room to express the woman’s originality."

Sharma Designs is an online boutique that offers one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings that accentuate a woman’s personality. Whether meek, manic or somewhere in between, Sharma Designs has jewelry to complement any woman’s mood. In addition to their one-of-a-kind jewelry, Sharma Designs also offers bridal jewelry designs and custom designs.
