Jewelry: Mixed Metals.

I was leafing through the Avon catalog my mum has and came across jewelry of the mixed metal variety.

My first thought was "This would be perfect for Dana with her beautiful skin!" Especially the earrings since she loves huge, dangly, earrings so much.

The mix of metals just catches the eye and the necklace and earrings are so sleek. Definitely great for going out to spice up the little black dress when heading out on the town.

There is another necklace for the "Fringe Benefits" series but I do not find it as interesting:

I think it fails to catch my attention because the necklace has too much silver and not enough gold and bronze in it. That's just my personal opinion and I am sure many other people do not mind this fact.

I recieved the new (May) Elle Magazine in the mail yesterday and saw Cartier has put out a line of mixed gold (gold, white gold, rose gold) jewelry called Trinty. I was loving the look of the ring and necklace in the advertisement, especially the adding of small diamonds to the multi-chain necklace. Very upscale but definitely pretty jewelry well worth the price.

I am now going to see if this "mixed metals" look for jewelry becomes more widespread as we move through spring and into summer.

The Cartier Trinity ring was introduced in the 1920s, but every generation discovers it anew :-)

In fact, it's what I point to when people ask me if they're "allowed" to wear yellow and gold metals at the same time.

Did you see the mixed-metal ring I made for gorgeous blogger Deja Pseu?

I saw thw ring and ti was gorgeous!

I think some fashion comes in cycles..like the mixed metals. WE must be entering another cycle of it.

I remember when I was in high school there was a "mixed metal" fashion cycles but the jewelry was a tad bit "gaudy". I am liking it better this time.
