The Best Hammered Gold Jewelry under $350

Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 4.52.14 PMHammered gold always makes us feel like powerful Greek goddesses. It’s also often more affordable than non-hammered pieces because designers can use less gold to create the same size of jewelry. Hammered gold tends to be slightly less shiny as well (though you should look at the piece to make sure)

We love all these pieces equally, but particularly love the Melanie Casey stacking ring. The black diamond is strong and creates a beautiful contrast with the hammered gold. It’s also a more subtle nod to the ancients and can be matched with other non-hammered and even sterling silver.

Most of the pieces in this round-up are 14k gold, except for the collar. Since we’re hesitant to wear expensive jewelry that does not have a clasp, this is the right price to pay for this item.
