It’s likely you’ve accumulated a treasure trove of baubles in gold, silver, rose gold, and other metals as you’ve jumped from one jewelry trend to the next. And with the fast-paced nature of the trend cycle, the pieces that aren’t en vogue, per se, are likely left to gather dust in your jewelry box. However, once you know how to wear silver and gold jewelry together, you’ll be able to get just about an equal amount of wear out of all your pieces.

At first mention of the idea, you might think that sporting both silver and gold jewelry is simple — all you need to do is wear them at the same time. However, when you start experimenting with your pieces, you’ll quickly find that it’s a little more complicated than you initially thought. Too much of one metal can create a loud clash of colors and if you over accessorize with metallics, the shine might distract from the rest of your look. Luckily, TZR has compiled a selection of silver and gold pieces that are easy to style. Some of the items already feature a mix of the two metals, which means all you have to do is throw on the piece and you’ve mastered the two-tone look. (A small fashion hack you’ll love.)

For those that are just getting comfortable with mixing metals, opt to wear daintier pieces, such as Aurate’s Thick Stackable Twist Ring. If you want to go for a bolder look, try a statement necklace like Serendipitous Project’s Disco Choke, which will put you in a party mood. If you’re hoping for a more serene vibe that still welcomes a double metal combo, opt for the Daisies Necklace from Eden’s Harvest and pair it with subtle silver studs. Or, there are always layer-able selects: pair a chunky statement necklace like the Multi Curb Chain from the Goop x Mejuri collab with a more delicate piece like Amarilo’s Jules Unity Chain. Below, you’ll find an assortment of silver and gold pieces that’ll make mixing the two metals as easy as can be.

Bring the party with you in this Disco Choker from indie brand Serendipitous Project. With its gold-filled links encrusted with micro pavé diamonds and a strong center piece aka the vintage silver ball pendant, the world is your dance floor. Plus, the necklace’s design already combines the two metal shades, meaning there’s no additional styling needed on your part.

This fluid pair of studs from contemporary brand Uncommon Matters is a fun twist on traditional silver and gold jewelry — literally. These 1-inch drop earrings are a simple yet effective metallic statement that would pair well with either a casual day look or a dressed-up night ensemble.

Eden’s Harvest is a New York City-based digital boutique that carries an assortment of handmade pieces, all of which carry a sense of soft sentimentality and offer a fresh perspective on jewelry trends. This flora-inspired necklace from the brand is a twist on the golden paper clip chain trend with its rings of freshwater pearls and dangling strand of quartz. The mixed mediums and varying hues present an easy opportunity to integrate silver into your look.

Fresh from the Goop x Mejuri jewelry collab, this 18k gold vermeil piece is not your standard chain necklace. Note the mix of a thick and thinner chain link coupled with a long length that gives you plenty of room to layer another silver necklace on top.

Made of sterling silver and 18k yellow gold discs with a hammered texture, this necklace from Ippolita is an ideal example of how to wear silver and gold jewelry. Since the slim coins are evenly spaced throughout the chain you never risk overloading on either of the two metals.

Designed by Australian-based brand F+H, this two-tone chain bracelet is a luxe mix of the two metals. If you want to add even more shine to your arms and experiment further with the metallic tones, pair your bracelet with a chunky silver ring.

Far too often, anklets are left out of the jewelry discourse. Not only does this golden flat chain from Lelia Mae make a case for why ankle accessories deserve a spot in your jewelry box, but it also would be so easy to style with other silver pieces. Try with a silver-gold combo necklace (like those featured on this list) or a silver ring or bracelet.
