Color Combos, plus Lava! (Like, from volcanoes. In jewelry.)

Steelers fans, rejoice: black and gold is no longer the sole reign of little old ladies from the 1980s. Ever since I tried out my new nail polish, which is a mix of gold-ish color and black, the combo has begun to appeal to me. Plus, since I’m dyeing my hair a preposterous shade of peroxide blonde, this is a perfect combo.

Black and Gold Inspiration

If Etsy were a house, I would move into it.

Here are some favorite black & gold items I love:

1) Teacup & saucer ($55); 2) Striped leggings ($59); 3) Sequined dress ($60); 4) Dress ($38); 5) Beaded necklace ($14.25); 6) Black & gold glitter nail polish ($8.50); 7) Geometric necklace ($39); 8) Black diamond ring ($2,449); 9) Zipper flower headband ($12.99); & 10) Dangle earrings ($22).

I’ve also begun to really love red & silver. 

Red-Grey

Here are a few red/grey items I adore:

1) Secretary dress ($24); 2) Faux pearl necklace ($25); 3) Geometric necklace ($30); 4) Pearl & flower necklace ($24); 5) Pillow case ($17); and 6) A totally crazy statement necklace ($680).

And finally, teal and copper is probably for old dirty hippies, but I’m not sure I care:

Copper-Blue

1) Spruce necklace ($14.50); 2) Chest of drawers ($250); 3) Triangle necklace ($85); 4) Flower earrings ($55); 5) Purse ($250); 6) Satin scarf (~$43); 7)  Peacock earrings ($49); and 8) Turquoise lava necklace (~$60 for one).

I’ve never seen lava used in a necklace! That’s awesome.

I researched the lava-jewelry thing and found some amazing stuff. This sidetrack wasn’t originally going to be in the post, but when I find something cool, I want to share it with everyone:
