Bridge with a Mixed Metal Piece

Successfully wearing different metals is easy when you bridge them with a mixed metal piece. For instance, a rose gold necklace and a white gold bracelet will both visibly link to a ring containing those metals. John Atencio’s Signature Collection holds a stunning assortment of one-of-a-kind mixed metal rings that not only draw the eyes, but please the soul. Handcrafted with 18k rose and white gold, a marquise-cut amethyst, trillion-cut green tourmaline and pave diamonds, the Signature Amethyst and Green Tourmaline Ring is an outstanding piece that will highlight any rose gold and white gold necklaces, bracelets or earrings you wear with it.

Layering Mixed Metals is in Style

Create a sensational style by layering your mixed metal jewelry around your neck, on your fingers and on your wrists. Wearing different metals creates a casual, chic look, and multiple necklaces, rings and bracelets look great layered and stacked. Yellow, white, and rose gold are stunning when worn together, whether you choose to pair two different metals or wear all of them together. Case in point, the Adore Petite Heart Pendant Necklace in white gold worn against the Adore Petite Diamond Heart Pendant Necklace in yellow gold is a striking fashion statement that you’ll be remembered for.
