Breaking The Rules: How To Mix Gold and Silver Jewelry

Perhaps the sign of a true fashionista is the ability to turn a faux pas into a trend.  Take Prada’s pattern clashes, Chloe’s double denim and who could forget the revolution that was 2007 and the skinny jean movement.

So throw away the rule book and dare to wear gold and silver jewelry together with this full proof plan.


Stack your metals

Make sure everything looks intentional.  This works with all jewellery; stack bracelets and rings for a chic mixed metal #arm party.  If you have multiple ear piercings then go wild with mix-and-match constellations or wear two or three necklaces at different lengths.

Wear one piece of combined metal jewellery to tie everything together

To ease you into the idea of mixing your jewelry, invest in one mixed-metal piece and the job is half done.  Great examples of this are watches with gold and silver bracelets, or champagne coloured faces.  You’ll find it much easier to be on time if you can’t stop staring at your gold and silver adorned wrist.

Commit to a style

Chunky or dainty, fine or costume, ethnic or traditional.  Okay maybe we didn’t mean it when we said throw out the rule book, because let’s face it there is only one Iris Apfel!  What we find is best, is if you stick to one style of jewelry so that there is some rhythm and rhyme to your accessories.

Don’t feel you have to stop at gold and silver

Why stop there?  With so many other options, play around with copper tones, oxidised silver or rose gold.  That way you can vary within gold or silver, or indeed mix them altogether.
