Silver and Gold Mix – Yes or No?

I have noticed alot of jewelry with mixed silver and gold the past few seasons. For years, women have tussled with this dilemma whether or not its appropriate to mix the two metals together. Past rules of jewelry etiquette once dictated that silver jewelry be worn with silver, gold be worn with gold, and never the two shall be mixed. But these rules have been changing. While wearing just one metallic element does give you a more traditional look, mixing them isn’t always a no-no. In fact, I have seen many upscale jewelry designers like David Yurman have been showcasing items that mix the two elements within the same piece. A good idea is to try wearing a piece such as a watch in silver and some gold bangle bracelets to complete your look. Or even layering gold and silver chain necklaces of different lengths.

If you are still unsure about how it will look, you could wear the type of metal the most that you usually wear and then accent with the other metal which would be a small “bridging” piece. As an example, If you normally wear silver, but want to highlight your outfit – then include a gold-silver item in your outfit as a bridging piece will make your accessories seem beautifully unified without going overboard and keeping you comfortable with your look. I love this look and have combined the metals in two of my earrings – Butterfly Wing Marquis and Mini Heart Marquis. I have also included in in my Charm Link Bracelet with 5 Gold Accent rings. Just enough gold to create a beautiful piece that is eye catching and harmonious. I think the combination is just stunning!
