Tips for Matching Jewelry
One of the most exciting aspects of jewelry is taking the opportunity to mix and match different pieces to create a style all your own. By pairing different designs, gemstones and metals, you can create uniquely intriguing looks that make the most out of your entire jewelry collection. But how do you pair your jewelry pieces in ways that maximize their impact? The following guide includes informative tips for matching jewelry to elevate your look and amplify your style.
How to Pair Jewelry with Your Outfit
When it comes to matching jewelry with your outfit, many factors come into play, including color, style, season and whether your intention is to dress up or go casual. Coordinating colorful gemstones to clothing always presents a stylish appearance, whether they match exactly or they complement the color of your outfit (reds with greens or yellows with blues).
As a general rule, simple jewelry flatters casual clothing, and statement jewelry adds elegance to an outfit. Some jewelry is designed to serve either purpose, especially classic pieces like simple gold cuffs and diamond stud earrings.
You can also wear a single piece or match and stack to create a stylish look. Unsure what that might look like? Check out the photo above featuring the stunning Entwine Gemstone Cuff Bracelet featuring prasiolite. Here, each John Atencio piece plays off the other with subtle contrasts that don’t clash. The pale metal and gemstone also complement the color of the blouse, creating harmonious beauty that attracts attention for all the right reasons.
Renowned for his bold and distinctive designs, John Atencio designs jewelry for every occasion, making it simple to select the pieces that elevate your apparel. Read on to discover how easy it is to match your clothing to breathtaking John Atencio jewelry.

Pair Statement Jewelry with Black for a Classic Look
Black outfits look amazing with the statement jewelry from John Atencio’s Elixir Collection.

Match by Color for the Perfect Look

Elevating any clothing but perfect for more formal occasions, the bold and distinctive Treasure Gemstone Ring is handcrafted in 14k white and yellow gold with an emerald-cut tanzanite center stone and pave diamonds. Matching your outfit to the same colors in your jewelry is always a sure bet.

Wear a single cuff with simple earrings and jeans for an everyday look or stack all three metals against each other with some diamond studs for a dynamic fashion statement. This cuff bracelet will match anything you wear and raise your style quotient every time it’s on your wrist.
Matching Jewelry with Other Jewelry
Match Jewelry by Carat Weight
If you selected a 1.5-carat stone for her engagement ring, choose a 1.5-carat stone for her jewelry. If her ring was crafted with scintillating pave diamonds, consider a glittering Paris Diamond Tennis Bracelet.
Whether you match the new jewelry to the center stone or the most prevalent stone type in her engagement ring, the pieces should complement each other in beautifully compelling ways.
Match Jewelry by Metal
If you’ve selected the Victoria Elite Diamond Engagement Ring in white gold, for instance, you can complement the piece with John’s Bellagio Pave Diamond Collection in white gold. Choose the Cuff Bracelet, Dangle Earrings or Pendant Necklace as a matching statement piece to her ring.
Likewise, the Devotion Hinged Diamond Bracelet in rose gold will handsomely highlight her rose gold Decision Diamond Engagement Ring by John Atencio.
Buy Several Pieces at the Same Time
This is a moment she’ll always remember, so give it the fireworks it deserves. Since you’ve already stepped up to the plate by purchasing a John Atencio engagement ring, hit a home run by accompanying it with a bonus gift of matching jewelry. Quicken her heart rate and expand her jewelry collection with the perfect complementary necklace, earrings or bracelet from John Atencio.

Make that monumental moment a little sweeter by layering the Adore Silver Heart Pendant Necklace with any John Atencio sterling silver or white gold necklace, or layer the unique 18” and 20-inch Paloma Confetti Diamond Station Necklaces.
