Sunday Theme - Mixed Metals

It used to be that you should never mix your metals when wearing jewellery - you either wore silver or you wore gold - but you never, ever, wore the two together. I can certainly remember being told that when I was younger.

Well, times have changed. These days, it is perfectly acceptable to wear more than one metal at the same time, in fact it is one of today's modern trends. More than that, these days there are some great jewellery designs that incorporate more than one metal into the same piece of jewellery. My Stripy Silver and Gold Viking Weave Bangle, pictured above, is one example. This mixes Sterling Silver and 14k Gold.

Here are some more great examples of Mixed Metal Jewellery from some members of the Jet Team:
