In New York City, we've got about three more months before it really starts to warm up, and I'm counting the days.

I'm eager to pair rich gold jewelry with breezy black summer dresses, a look that up-and-coming actress Camilla Belle pulls off with aplomb.

The critics may be out about her new film, 10,000 B.C., but, as proven at the film's world premiere held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, Belle is continuing her run as a bona fide style star.

A regular fashion fixture on the pages of Teen Vogue, the 21-year-old actress dazzled with her typical éclat, donning 18-karat gold hoop earrings, a bracelet and rings, all from Amrapali of Jaipur.

My favorite part about her jewelry choices is the way all the pieces add up in a medley of textures and weights, from the thin gold hoops to the hefty rings and the large, openwork cuff.

Who knew a single metal could keep the eye wandering for so long?

Summer: 87 days to go!
