There is a common myth around mixing metals in jewellery as a strict no-no. Since fashion is always open for interpretation, we believe that mixing gold and silver jewellery is a fun and creative way to create a statement unique look.
We love it so much that we created the X2 Collection, where we intentionally mix the classic three colours: silver, gold and black to create an interesting mix and match jewellery that can go with literally everything!
So, how do you mix and match gold and silver jewellery, you may ask… Here’s our 5 tips:
1. PICK A CENTREPIECE
The first tip on how to mix and match gold and silver jewellery is to choose a centrepiece that you want to be as the “eye-catcher” and accessorise around it.
The centrepiece can be anything, from an interesting necklace to a funky brooch, a cocktail ring or statement earrings, whichever grabs the most attention due to its size or style.
All the other jewellery pieces should complement your centrepiece. Small studs or minimalist rings, which have an identical or complementary tone may be worn with a big bold statement piece to glam everything up.
2. LAYER THE JEWELLERY
Another mix and match jewellery style tip is to layer your gold and silver jewels according to dimension and thickness. You can stack the necklaces by pairing long pieces with shorter ones.
Something to be wary of is to ensure that you don’t overdo it. Never load up with too much jewellery. Oftentimes a simple and understated look is better.
3. STACK YOUR RINGS
One of the latest styles when it comes to wearing rings is stacking. The best thing about this stacking trend is that there are no rules. This is another great way of mixing and matching jewellery.
If layering necklaces aren’t your thing, we recommend layering brooches in different colours and shapes together, but if you feel overwhelmed then you should try styling rings, which are easy to do, simply spread them around your fingers… as long as it is comfortable and convenient of course.
Stacking rings is a trending phenomenon, with several fast forward fashion brands stocking up on trendy rings. When stacking rings there are no limits, and you may even wear two or three rings on the same finger.
It doesn’t matter how many rings you wear. Sounds pretty simple and awesome, right?
4. HOW TO MIX AND MATCH GOLD AND SILVER JEWELLERY
Another great tip for mixing and matching jewellery is to mix different metals. You no longer have to settle on one metal color due to the new fashion trends.
Mixing and matching silver, rose gold, or gold metals are all viable options for your look.
Mixing gold and silver jewellery is the best tried and tested combination, but you can try out all the different combinations to find what suits your style.
5. HOW YOU CAN MIX DIFFERENT COLOUR JEWELLERY
When it comes to mixing and matching gold and silver jewellery, the last tip is to add beautiful sets of colour jewellery to your combination. If you decide to just stick with plain metals, even though they’re blended, the entire look might not be so appealing.
That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid of blending in a colourful piece to your gold and silver jewellery combination. It’ll enhance and make your pieces look exciting and fashionable.
The process of mixing and matching gold and silver jewellery or metals could be intimidating but once you start playing around with it, it can be fun. With all your jewellery pieces gathered together, the combinations can be endless.
If ever in doubt simply select anything from the X2 Collection and the mix is done for you!
