Mixing Silver & Gold with Elegance

As fashion is ever evolving so are the rules. Mixing silver and gold is now perfectly acceptable and mixing these two colors together can freshen up your look. By combining different metals and beads you can create an amazing necklace or pair earrings that break this once fashion faux pa.

A third, neutral color can easily tie gold and silver together. Natural stones are preferred such as smoky quartz or freshwater pearls.

This third element doesn't have to be a neutral, you can add a deep, strong color that will work well with both gold and silver. Deep purples, blues, greens and magentas are nice options.

Take a look at our example, strands of gold and silver Miyuki cube beads, adorned with silver charms and deep purple tone of Czech machine cut crystals.
