How to Style Mixed Metals


Have you ever had a hard time deciding if you should wear your favorite Gold statement earrings or your go-to Rose Gold pendant necklace? What if we told you that you didn’t have to choose? One of our favorite trends of the moment lets all your silver, gold, and rose gold jewelry live in harmony: mixed metals.

As our VP of Design says, “The point of mixing is that you don’t have to match.” We know, it might sound scary, and mixing metals is an art for sure. But with these tips and tricks, you’ll master the mixed metals look in no time.

The Base

If you’re going for a bold mixed metals style, let them be the star of the show – your clothes become the canvas. A classic solid tee or a dress in your favorite color becomes your perfect base for accessorizing. This simple backdrop will let the colors of the metals shine, and show off your impeccable styling skills!

The Jewelry

Want to mix metals, but have no idea where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Our new Lynne Necklace in Mixed Metal makes the perfect starting piece for all your mixed metal looks. With a modern mix of Gold, Silver, and Vintage Gold accents, you can match this super layerable piece with your favorite Silver or Gold jewelry flawlessly.

But don’t worry, we didn’t forget about all of our Rose Gold lovers. Even though this piece doesn’t feature any Rose Gold, the warm tones in our Vintage Gold pairs beautifully with your favorite Rose Gold jewels. Take a look – we layered the Marisa Pendant Necklace in Rose Gold and the Lynne Adjustable Necklace in Mixed Metals, with no trace of clashing or mismatching.

The Look

When you’re mixing metals, keep in mind a main color family in your look. If you rock warmer tones on a regular basis, mixing Gold jewelry and Rose Gold jewelry might be your best bet. On the other hand, if you’re a cool tone gal, try mixing your favorite Gold and Silver pieces together. We like to think of Gold as the ultimate neutral metal – it plays nicely with all the other metallics in your jewelry box. But based on your style and skin tone, choose a main metal that matches you best, and add on from there. The result? A bold, eclectic look that’s uniquely you!
