Gold, Silver and Bronze Olympic Accessories

By Jennifer @jennynov23

During week 1 of the Olympics at Sochi I have been keeping a close watch on my fellow Canadians and I came to the conclusion that those red and white uniforms are in dire need of some accessorizing.  
And since achomplishing Olympic gold is kinda a big deal, not just any accessory will do. Read on for my humble suggestion...hint, these
beauties from net-a-porter are precisely what I'm talkin about
When the ancient Olympics first began an olive wreath was the prize for the winners. More specifically, winners received an olive branch from the wild-olive tree that grew at Olympia, intertwined to form a circle or a horse-shoe. When the modern Olympic Games began in 1896 medals were introduced to the winning athletes. Now that's what I'm talking about, if I'm gonna dedicate my life to a sport, train for hundreds of hours, push my body to its physical limit and represent my country in an international competition I best be awarded with a serious piece of jewelery. In fact, diamonds would be nice.
I may not be an athlete but its my guess that for a newly crowned Olympian there is nothing WORSE than clashing with your Olympic medal. Right?
Well, this winter Olympics, our athletes are in luck, because our current season is overflowing with metallic accessories in shades of gold, silver and bronze that will go perfectly with any piece of hardware they take home. If you're not lucky enough to be representing at the Olympics this year you can always use the metallic trend to spice up an every day outfit, and be a superstar in your own right. Bellow is a list of my top picks curated for the Olympian in all of us.
