But how do you wear gold and silver jewelry together without feeling like a fashion disaster? If you’re not ready to jump headfirst onto the mixed metals train, we’re here to help. Keep reading for a few tips on how to wear gold and silver together.
Layering and combining
As long as you don’t mind wearing several pieces of each type of jewelry, layering and combining your jewelry is a great way to wear silver and gold together.
If you prefer a minimalist look, we recommend layering necklaces. Even two or three necklaces combined can work together to create a cohesive set. If you layer three necklaces, choose one metal for the top and bottom necklaces and the other metal for the middle necklace.
If you like a more “maximalist” look, we love combining rings. When you wear several rings on each hand (or even each finger), it already looks “busy.” Mixing metals will look more natural.
The more jewelry you wear, the less out of place your mixed metals will look.
Pick Mixed-Metal Pieces
This is the easiest way to mix metals. Picking pieces that already incorporate both silver and gold is a good way to ease yourself into wearing more unique mixed-metal styles.
As jewelry trends start to “allow” mixed metals, more and more brands are making pieces that suit those trends.
Starting with one mixed-metal piece gives you a good foundation for mixing metals with the rest of your jewelry. Consider that piece a statement piece.
Start with a large mixed-metal pendant or mixed-metal earrings. When you add more gold and silver jewelry to complete your look, the rest of those pieces will complement the statement piece so they won’t look out of place.
Uniting With a Common Element
If you’re struggling to find a good way to combine metals, try to find a unifying element that will pull everything together. Even if the metals are different, the unifying feature will make your jewelry look cohesive.
If you’re wearing gold earrings that are triangular, for example, look for a silver necklace that has a triangular pendant, or silver angular rings.
Commit to Your Look
At the end of the day, the best fashion advice that anyone can give you (regarding jewelry or any other parts of your look) is to commit. If you look uncomfortable with your silver and gold jewelry, other people will notice. If you want to look good, wear your jewelry with confidence, even if you think that it might be a fashion faux-pas.
