gold vs. silver

Does a gold ring and silver watch/bracelet clash because of the different metals? For example, would it clash on my wedding day to wear a silver/white gold bracelet, and then have a gold wedding band?

  • I don't like to mix jewelery, but that's just me :)

    yes.
    but it's your wedding so you should do whatever you like.  
  • Personally, I don't mix gold and silver jewelry.

  • I don't like to mix either
  • I'm not usually keen on mixing jewelry, but think about it: Just because your wedding band is yellow gold, does that mean you'll never wear a white gold, silver, copper, etc bracelet for the rest of your life? Not likely. 

    I think you should wear what you want. If there is a beautiful silver/white gold bracelet you want to wear, I say go for it.

  • I've always been taught that the wedding and e-ring are the exception to mixing metals.  Like some people may side-eye you for yellow gold earring and a silver neckalce but not for a yellow gold wedding ring and silver necklace.

    This was my thought exactly.  I am planning to follow this rule myself, though I have an aunt that has a substitute set (CZ) for when she wears white gold or silver jewelry.

  • I don't own any yellow gold jewelry so I won't have a problem mixing, but you should do whatever you want.  5 years from now it's unlikely anyone will have noticed if you mixed metals at your wedding.

  • I'm a mixer so I say do it without thinking twice. Try some practice runs with silver/gold mix on the days/weeks leading up to your wedding to get used to it and see if it really bothers you. If you hate it then you'll know what to do. But I highly doubt anyone will think twice about it since it's your ring.
    Mixing metals opens up a whole world of possibilities once you get used to it. Kinda like wearing a brown belt or boots with a great black sweater dress. Breaking "the rules" is acceptable these days I believe (or I hope so at least!)
  • I don't usually like mixing up jewelry but the wedding band is definitely the only piece I wouldn't mind keeping different from everything else. It just tells a story of its own.
    I say go for it!
  • According to "What Not to Wear" they are both neutrals so you can mix and match.

  • I also don't mix my metals with my jewelry. I'm very matchy-matchy..
  • My watch is two toned, silver with a gold dial... I wear two gold rings, and wear my watch... daily....

  • I'm not a fan of mixing either, but if you like the look, go with it.

  • I don't normally mix them, but for my wedding day, since everything by my wedding band are heirloom pieces, I'll mix the yellow gold jewelry with my white gold wedding ring.  It is more important to me to wear my grandmother's and mother's jewelry than to care about matching. 

    Like PPs said, your wedding band and e-ring are the exceptions for mixing since you have those on every day for life and may want to wear something of another metal once in a while.
