If you're anything like me, you'd be hard-pressed to find a metallic accessory that doesn't catch your eye. But after years of gold, silver and copper getting all the love, a new, shiny style is certainly in order.

The one-of-a-kind look recalls the colors found in oil slicks but feels streamlined and decidedly stylish.
