When you pair gold jewellery with other metals such as silver and stainless steel, there’s a big chance of discovering a combination that can take your style to the next level! You can create a trend that’s not only unique but also one of a kind, tailored to your tastes by mixing and matching different accessories.
The taboo of pairing different metals together is entirely a myth! Jewellery expresses who you are, and there is no hard rules on how they should be worn. You may have always preferred gold over silver, or vice versa, but why not try having them both?
If you do not have a piece of mixed metal jewellery, simply create your own! Layering is a great way to wear both silver and gold together and is easy to achieve. This works best with necklaces and bracelets, such as our Gold Odelia Fancy Necklace, crafted with minimalism in mind so you can experiment to your heart's content!
A tip from us: Choose necklaces of different lengths to prevent them from tangling, while for bracelets, you may want to combine varying patterns and sizes to see what suits your style.
Are rings your favourite piece of jewellery? Why not wear multiple at the same time?
This is called stacking and can give your outfit a boost if done well. Depending on your intention, there are different ways to do this. For example, if you want to highlight a statement ring, such as your engagement ring, we recommend using rings of different metals with minimalist design. This is to ensure that your statement piece remains at the centre of attention, while being highlighted by the other metals.
Balancing your jewellery
When mixing jewellery of different metals, you may be worried about having a mismatched look. This is where balance comes into play, as it can make or break your outfit. If you’re wearing several gold bracelets, but only a pair of stainless steel earrings, attention won’t be equally drawn to both metals, and it may even cause your earrings to appear awkward. To achieve balance, you can ask yourself these questions, “Is there too much of a certain colour?” and “Is one type of metal more prominent than the other?”. When in doubt, don’t feel shy in asking for help! Call a friend to get their opinion or take a look at examples found on the internet, and you’ll soon find yourself confidently pairing different metals with gold for every occasion.
Choose a point of focus
The ears, wrist, neck, and fingers are popular points for those who want to wear gold jewellery with other metals. Knowing which area you would like to focus on can help you come up with ideas for it. When planning on ways to mix different jewelleries, you may feel restricted by so called fashion rules, but don’t be afraid to throw them away and let your creativity run wild! Rules are made to be broken, and you might discover a new favourite style or two.
