Jewellery for a Gomezi

Jewellery for a Gomezi

A woman carefully selects the jewellery, shoes and bag to match her gomezi dress. Bold bright plastic orbs and beads are very popular or glittery large costume jewellery. She will make sure she is wearing matching earrings and necklace that are at a particular length. Many will match these with a bracelet too.
