5 Rules for Mixing Metals

Mixing metals in jewelry

Gold and silver- ‘Never the twain shall meet’ is something that is long gone and a lot has changed in fashion since then. Mixing metals in jewelry means mixing two or more distinct and contrasting metals together. Here are a few guidelines that will help you mix metals:

  • Silver-gold combined jewelry – This is an easy way to start wearing mixed metals. Find a combination piece that has both gold and silver like the necklace in the picture below. You can then work around by either wearing a gold bracelet and a silver handbag.

  • Start with delicate rings and necklaces- You are a novice at mixing metals but you really want to try this out. Then all you need to do is start with delicate rings. Stack your Rings – midi rings, above the knuckle rings in various tones and sport an edgy look. Another way is to layer Necklaces. Dainty necklaces of different lengths and metals when worn together simply looks high fashion.

  • Keep the ratio in mind – Wearing a silver Bracelet and adding multiple gold bracelets will be of no use as the mess of gold will hide that dainty little bracelet. The ratio is important while stacking.
  • Texture and tones – A perfectly hammered gold bracelet with two or three twisted silver bracelets looks ultimately chic. In the picture given below, you can see how the wearer has mixed gold, silver and rose gold together. Since she has worn three different metals together, she has worn all the bracelets in one texture.

  • Have a type – When you are mixing metals, remember to have a type. If you are planning to go boho, then wearing a timeless bracelet would look out of place. Or wearing a classy watch and adding multiple hammered bracelets would just break the look. Stick to a type and accordingly select the pieces you want to mix.

Black outfit is a good option because black matches with both gold and silver. When you are wearing a gold necklace, black dress or pants and silver bracelet, both gold and silver looks fabulous with black. Black and gold is a classy combination in itself and silver and black is another great combination. You just mixed both the metals by bringing in a third color. No one has ever gone wrong with this.
