Jewelry rules used to warn against mixing gold and silver-- it was a fashion faux pas.
Marie Claire made a good point: upscale designers have long been integrating different metals in single pieces. A great example of this is David Yurman.
Some examples of DY jewelry:
If you don't own jewelry that has both gold & silver on the same piece, here are some great ways to achieve this look!
1) Stack bracelets of different mixed metals. You can include silver, gold, rose gold, stainless steel, and also incorporate colors into the mix!

Love this last one because it also throws in diamonds,
|This is my watch. I absolutely love it! It makes wearing silver & gold together|
super easy because it already incorporates both colors in the palette.
Option three has rose gold, a metal we're seeing incorporated more in recent months. I don't love rose gold on me, but it's a great alternative to yellow gold which some people dislike against their skin tones.
Now that gold and silver are represented in the watch, it makes wearing jewelry/accessories of different metals a no-brainer. Add on different rings, bracelets, etc. like the stacking photos above.
*Or, if you prefer to keep it simple, this sort of watch designs allows for you to go either/or in terms of metal. Stick with all gold/all silver in the rest of your overall outfit.
3) Carry a bag with elements of both silver & gold- whether its hardware (zippers) or metallic fabric choices. This opens the door to wear both colors in jewelry/clothing fabrics because it ties the other pieces in with the theme of the bag.
*Or, like Beyonce, choose to go with one metal element displayed in your bag, and run with it! She rocks patent gold pumps and gold jewelry detail throughout her look!
