As the current owner also of uber cool interiors store, Surround, in trendy St Kilda, Melbourne, Balscheit first introduced her customers to a small Goldie range back in 2009. After regularly accompanying her partner on business trips to New York, Balscheit discovered and developed relationships with some passionate vintage jewellery collectors and wholesalers. Today, she continues to complement her collection with pieces sourced from the flea markets of Paris as well.
"Goldie evokes an individual and striking expression for the confident and glamorous wearer," Balscheit describes. She is very considered with her selection process. Most of her pieces originate from the late 1950's to the late 1970's. "I always look for pieces that I really love, however, now I also consider the feedback of my customers, what pieces have been popular and what fashion trends are emerging" explains Balscheit.
With Spring Racing season almost upon us, Daniella has highlighted her favourite pieces from the current Goldie collection. "Obviously there is a strong nod to gold, however, the collection also features a lot of beautiful gemstones perfect for Spring fashion. There are also a number of colourful ceramic pieces that are just divine," Belscheit gushes, as she holds up an amazing coral necklace. Customers are also encouraged to take advantage of Goldie's complimentary in-store styling service. "We welcome customers to bring in their outfits so we can assist them with finding the perfect accessories."
Goldie jewellery is currently available from Surround Interiors and online at Goldie.net.au. Online customers are also offered the added service of being able to try before you buy. Simply select a few pieces you like, try them on and then return any unsuitable pieces (conditions apply).
So happy shopping and happy Spring Racing ladies!
