Mixing metal jewelry: is it okay to wear gold and silver together?

Mixing metal jewelry: is it okay to wear gold and silver together?

Mixing metals has long been a controversial topic amongst jewelry-lovers. Some love to mix metals, others don’t like it, and of course it all comes down to individual taste. But if you’re wondering if it’s okay to mix jewelry colors, or if it’s okay to wear gold and silver together, we’re here to tell you: it’s not only okay, it’s a great way to show your unique style! 

Mixed metal jewelry can include all colors of gold - white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold, for example - as well as other metals such as sterling silver and platinum. 

There’s a myth that mixing metals is tacky, but it’s just that; a myth.  There’s nothing tacky about wearing high-quality jewelry that you love. Mixed metals are currently on-trend, but trends come and go; at MIRACO we believe that elegant design is always in style. If you choose jewelry pieces that speak to you, you’ll never have to worry about following trends - instead, you’ll be the trendsetter.

How to mix and match jewelry metals

When mixing jewelry colors, you can go minimalist or maximalist, but the key is mixing metals within the same jewelry categories. For example: instead of a yellow gold necklace and a silver ring, try a stack of mixed metal rings. 

Keep it simple

The trick in how to mix metal jewelry is in letting the metal colors shine. Try to keep gemstones, especially colored stones, to a minimum, and instead focus on simple silhouettes, layerable pieces, and variation in lengths when mixing gold and silver necklaces. When mixing rings, try to find a range of thicknesses and shapes that create a dynamic visual effect. 

Stack it up

More is more when it comes to the number of pieces - stack as many as you want! The more repetition of the metal colors you see across the categories of jewelry, the more cohesive the look will be. 

Match the tone

Remember that there are many kinds of jewelry, even within fine jewelry. Rather than trying to match metal colors, try to match the tone of the items. Are they sculptural, are they thin and delicate, do they fall within a specific art period (e.g. Art Deco)? When you layer jewelry items that have a similar vibe, you’ll still look polished and put together, regardless of metal color. 

Look for mixed metal pieces

If you happen to have a mixed metal piece, that can be a great foundation for building a look with multiple metal colors. A single piece that has many colors within it can anchor an ensemble and lay the groundwork for adding similar metal colors.
