A Touch of Two-Tone

One of the biggest jewelry trends over the past few years is the two-tone gold look. Many people have asked me whether it looked tacky to mix gold colors. I am probably the wrong person to ask, as I mix all three tones literally everyday.

If paired correctly, mixing white, yellow, and rose gold jewelry can be a great way to make a statement and add a kick to any outfit. The mixing of all three tones has actually been pretty popular since the 1960s, and I am happy to see the combination look rise in popularity once again.

Have you ever wondered why gold comes in different colors? When you buy a white gold ring, the gold alloys likely contain palladium or nickel. In Egypt, gold appears to have a pinkish hue, which is due to copper that is mixed in with the gold alloys.

Looking to sport the look? The good news is everyone from Zara and H&M to Michele and Cartier have released some fresh pieces that are timeless.
