I’m not sure why, but for many Americans, including myself, we seem to get trapped in style rules passed down to us by our Moms. But today, when reflecting on these rules, they no longer make much sense. I’m sure you’ve heard the myth ‘You can’t wear white after Labor Day!”. Or, black and brown or black and navy blue can’t be worn together. Another common myth, “You can’t mix gold and silver!” Rules of jewelry etiquette once dictated that silver jewelry be worn with silver, gold be worn with gold, and never the two shall meet. But these rules have changed. While wearing just one metallic element does give you a more traditional look, mixing them is no longer a no-no. Mountz Jewelers is making an exception to the rule.
Instead, we are mixing wallet-friendly and oh-so-shiny silver with gold for a look that is eye-catching without busting our budgets. Whether you wear a piece of jewelry that showcases the two metals, or choose shoes or a bag in silver and gold, Mountz Jewelers supports you and this now leading fashion trend.
Some of the easiest ways to jump on the trend is to layer gold and silver bangles or wear a watch that combines white and yellow gold, help pulling your gold and silver pieces together. See some suggestions below, to help us all be fashion forward, not fashion victims.
