Mixing metals in your jewelry isn’t a faux pas. In fact, it’s a great way to add style and drama, and even get a completely personalized jewelry look. From rose gold and yellow gold to white gold and platinum, here are our three ways you can mix your metals for maximum effect.

Go With the Flow

When mixing your metals, opt for designs that flow together, illustrating that multiple metal colors are meant to be.
