Gold & Silver Jewelry: The Fashionable Mix-up

Gold and Silver Jewelry

This post is also available in: Spanish

Gold and Silver JewelryWearing gold and silver jewelry together was a rule of thumb that, until recently, we would have never even dared to break. But thanks to the way the fashion world has evolved, wearing both metals has become almost unavoidable, and even exciting.

But, ladies, even if we break the rules, we still have “rules” to do it in the most elegant way possible. Let’s dig in:

If you are going to wear several bracelets, it’s better that they be the same thickness. Or, if you prefer, of different thicknesses together.


If you want to wear rings and bracelets, you should choose silver rings and gold bracelets or vice versa.


When wearing necklaces, choose those with charms and alternate them by their length; this way you will create a very sophisticated color cascade effect.


Allow your jewelry to create a gradient effect against your skin by layering them from gold to silver or vice versa.

If you don’t want to garner too much attention, wear matte finish jewelry. And don’t forget, the amount of jewelry you wear is up to you and the places you go.

If you want an easier way to combine these two metals, a lot of jewelry actually does it for you! Be on the look out for unique pieces that intertwine these opposing colors.
