Jewelry — it’s a staple for most women, and one that has long come with a set of rules attached. Back when a few tastemakers set the standards for jewelry-wearing individuals, the idea was to choose between gold or silver — never, ever both. Fortunately, that idea (along with the notion that only a select few can be tastemakers) is long gone, and mixed metal jewelry is in.
I know, it sounds practically heretical. Silver and gold playing together in an ensemble? Color me confused…but also curious. After all, I’m, admittedly, sick of not being able to wear silver earrings because my glasses are gold, or foregoing rings because they clash.
Whether your budget is $20 or $2,000, these mixed metal jewelry pieces are well-deserved updates to your current collection. Time to say goodbye to conservative picking between silver and gold, and hello to living life on the edge — after all, you only live once.

Shashi Gina Ring
An open ring, on its own, is already special — the clean lines offer just a smidge of toughness. This mixed metal ring, with gold and silver meeting in the middle, is subtle without trying to disappear into the background.
David Yurman Crossover Ring
Contrasts in jewelry can be tricky. Too discreet, and it feels like an afterthought. Too much, and the effect can overpower an otherwise solid design. This ring by David Yurman allows the gold and silver to offset smooth and textured intertwined bands.

Keep one of these rings for yourself and gift the other two to your ride-or-die besties. Or keep them all for yourself — we won’t judge.
Tory Burch Serif-T Band Ring
