Hello,

please, is it correct to say:

1) I have many silver earrings, but I don´t have any golden.

Or do I have to say:

2) I have many silver earrings, but I don´t have any golden ones.

Thanks!

    You need no.2: I have many silver earrings, but I don´t have any gold ones.

    (Gold seems to be more used than golden in everyday contexts, even if it's not 24-carat.)
