A Guide To Mixing Silver And Gold Jewellery

There are those people who will tell you that combining gold and silver jewellery is a fashion no-no, when in fact, the opposite is true. You see gold and silver jewellery worn together on all the fashion catwalks, and with a little imagination and some trial and error, you can accessorise using a blend of gold and silver jewellery.

Start With The Outfit

Jewellery should never be a major feature of any look, as it is designed to complement the clothing rather than making a statement. If you shop online, you can choose from stunning gold jewellery from around the world that is both stylish and very affordable, and the online jeweller would have both gold and silver items on offer. Summer outfits are best complemented with gold & silver bangles of varying dimensions, while mixing thin gold and silver necklaces is also a great way to add a touch of colour.


It is fashionable for women to wear multi-bangles, and with silver being the predominant metal, you can add a thin gold chain or a single gold bangle to complement the arrangement. It is a good idea to lay out all of your gold and silver bracelets, so you can clearly see what you have, and some experimenting in front of a mirror will likely yield results. The truth is, there are no hard and fast rules about how you mix gold and silver jewellery, and if you feel the combination works for you, then you can wear your jewellery with some confidence. Generally speaking, gold is better in the minority when mixing the two, but that isn’t to say a little silver added to a golden look doesn’t work, it can.

Avoid Style Conflicts

While it is fine to mix gold and silver jewellery, you should avoid obvious style clashes, keeping old with old and modern with modern. Antique jewellery items, for example, should not be used to accessorise a modern business look, and with so many great gold and silver jewellery items you can find with online jewellers, you won’t have a problem sourcing the right items to complete the look. There are informative blogs you can find online that will help you get the most out of your jewellery by mixing and matching.

Layer Your Necklaces And Bracelets

This is a great way to add depth and colour to an outfit, and when layering necklaces, start with the longest and add shorter ones, with a mixture of gold and silver to make the combination look more interesting. Bracelets can be mixed in a similar way, with perhaps a chic silver charm bracelet with a thin gold bracelet for great effect.

You can also mix gold colours, with white and different shades of gold, including rose gold, which adds a touch of pink to the look. The fun part of accessorising outfits is the experimenting you can do, and if you want a second opinion, take a few selfies and send them to your best friend. Mixing gold and silver jewellery allows you to make the best use of items that would otherwise be left in your jewellery box, and with a little imagination and some creativity, you can easily create unique looks by blending gold with silver.

  2. Silver and silver-tone metals like polished stainless steel or chrome are neutral. They read as grays, functionally outside the color wheel, falling instead on the black-to-white gradient. That means they don t clash too sharply with anything, but also don t provide the same eye-catching contrasts that well-worn gold can. Pair silver jewelry with black or dark gray clothing for a sleek, timeless look, or you can wear it with lighter colors in the summer without the fear of it overwhelming your clothing’s soft colors.
