Mixed Metals – It is Time to Own the Two Tone Jewelry

‘Fashion is transient, but style is eternal’. While you may choose to follow contemporary fashion trends or have a consistent style, one rule stays in common. And that is, both adhere to ‘no rules’. Yes, you heard us right. No presumptuous rules dictate when it comes to giving a let out to our sartorial reveries. Like clothing, creating a statement look with fine jewelry is a nuanced art. To ace the skill, break free of antiquated styling shackles. Love both your white and yellow gold rings equally? Can’t decide between your rose gold and white gold bracelets? We say, why should one have to choose? Wear both. Mixed metal jewelry is for fashion connoisseurs who love to play unique, stand out with their choices, while creating unprecedented trends along the way.

It is Time to Own Up the Mixed Metals Trend in Jewelry

It all started with women developing a penchant for other jewelry metals apart from yellow gold. For those who found the latter a bit ostentatious, white gold presented a subtle alternative. Rose gold jewelry, too, found its niche admirers who fell for its elegant charm and sophistication. Platinum has always been held highly for its eliteness as a jewelry metal. But truth be told, most of us feel equally bewitched by all these metals at a given time, overwhelmed by the urge to wear them together. Once upon a time, it would have constituted a major style impropriety to fathom such sorts of metal mingling, but not anymore. Mixed metal jewelry is a hot trend, and if you nail it right, you can elevate any look from an average styling tryst to a ravishing, swoon-worthy appearance.

Just as wearing ‘prints on prints’ reflects an avant-garde outfit choice, stacking different jewelry metals together speaks of artistic excellence. Think of stacking multiple rings or layering bracelets in different metals with a monochrome outfit for raised glamour. If two-tone jewelry agrees with your aesthetic conscious, we suggest investing in jewelry pieces designed in two to three metals. It takes off the humongous effort that goes into putting complementing jewelry together.

Till you achieve that, let these gorgeous two-tone metal rings, remarkable for their designs, sit pretty on your fingers. Read on as we unravel some of our favorites from the collection.

– Make the two-tone jewelry the high feature of your look by styling it with a monochrome outfit or a single-tone look from head to toe. Wear different hues of a single color, while the different metals of the jewelry add a sophisticated vibe to the look.

– Go all black. Though a black outfit in itself is a byword of luxury, elevating it with two-tone jewels ascends the whole dress-up game to another level. Metal gold in all its color variations – yellow, white, and rose gold, along with diamonds strikes brilliantly against a black backdrop. Let your outfit be that backdrop to the scintillating glean of the beautiful jewelry.

– For further accenting the impact of your mixed metal jewelry, layer it with more single-tone jewelry. If you wear a yellow-white gold ring, consider highlighting it with an elegant band in a single metal. Even a sleek diamond band would work wonders in accentuating the mixed metal ring. Stack a two-tone bracelet with single metal bracelets on either side, enhancing the impact while putting the latter in the spotlight.

– Planning to wear your yellow-white gold jewelry? Follow maximalism in accessorizing, but tread the path cautiously. Refrain from adding on any other color variation of metal to your look like rose gold, platinum, or silver. Too many stars of the show only act upon ruining the essence.

Your style is what sets you apart and with the mixed metal jewelry featuring in your looks, be sure you are at the pinnacle of your game.
