Traditional fashion rules dictate that white is not to be worn after labor day, shoes and bags must be matched, and gold and silver do not mix. Fortunately, contemporary fashion trends have allowed us to blow past all of these rules. In fact, mixed metal jewelry is currently on trend.
Mixed metal jewelry gives the wearer a chance to show off her favorite pieces at one, regardless of the color of their metal. Additionally, the trend allows jewelers to creatively combine different metals in the same piece. Bottom line: We don’t have to pick a favorite among yellow gold, rose gold, copper, silver, or pewter! We can have it all.
Stylish individuals combine pieces made with different metals for a “collected” look—a look that suggests the wearer has gathered several cool pieces over time.

Depending on your relationship to your jewelry, certain metals may symbolize different elements of your life. For example, rose gold may represent love and romance while platinum may stand for purity and security.
The mixed metals trend doesn’t stop at jewelry, however. You can find it trendy home decor—cooper and pewter are a popular combination—as well as beauty. From eyeshadow to manicures, mixing metallic cosmetics is a fun way to change up your look for a night out—without committing anything permanent.
