Our usual impressions when thinking of the colour ‘Gold’ are power, richness and abundance. Gold ties were common on men during the prosperous years. Now after the global financial crisis, tie colours are more subdued to reflect thrift and care for each other.
Gold is associated with the sun, the wonderful colours of autumn and deciduous trees and shrubs.
In its association with the sun, gold is related to higher ideals, wisdom and understanding. As a positive energy force it clears and sharpens the mind. In this way gold is said to be excellent for depression.
Gold in clothing is mostly decoration or for evening wear. Springs love sparkly gold; Autumns prefer a burnished or matt gold and Summers and Winters look fabulous in white gold or rose gold.
