My DH bought me a Tiffany Atlas ring a couple years ago in rose gold. I loved it, at first but like you I wear white gold/silver/platinum daily.  The two metals mix well together but I very quickly fell out of love with rose gold and now the ring sits by its lonesome in my jewelry box.  I have even had the thought of having it dipped to match my other daily jewelry. I feel awful because it was a very generous gift.

I think that the answer would depend on each individual person. Some people would say no they don’t go and some think they do.

I am on the boat that think rose gold and silver can go together as long as its done tastefully. But, I also think less is more so I only wear one necklace at a time and for bracelets, I would only wear with earings and no necklace. But, that’s just my opinion.

I think its beautiful.

I think mixed metals look nice but how you carry it will of course be dependent on your style.  You’ve described yourself as a minimal jewelry kind of girl so I’m inclined to think the mismatching might look out of place on you.  I’m also not a blingy girl, I don’t wear makeup, but I do have a very fun fashion sense and looove shopping for clothes.  That being said, I have a closet overflowing with colorful, unique pieces that I wear maybe twice a year for special occassions because my first choice is always comfort.  If you don’t already have a regular rotation of fancy accessories, I think this one may just be more stress than it’s worth.  The few expensive bracelets and necklaces that have been gifted to me are safely tucked in the back of a drawer because I’m too fixated on not damaging or losing it when I’m wearing it.  BUT!  That bracelet is super cute and I completely understand the compulsion to treat yourself.  I just felt obligated to warn you that it may end up becoming a once a year bracelet.  I’ve wasted A LOT of money trying to be fashionable.

I am NOT fashionable. But I am…ecclectic. And I mix metals all the time. My wedding set is rose gold and yellow gold. The necklace I wear every day is white gold. My RHR is Sterling. I don’t wear them to coordinate, I wear them because I love them! I say of the bracelet speaks to you, you should definitely get it! It is very simple and would go well with understated clothes.

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  I love it and I think it would be a great treat! the design is very feminine but would work really well with basics, a platinum or white gold ering, RHR if you feel like it, rose gold bracelet, set of stud earrings. DONE.

I have a rose gold bracelet I wear with a platinum e ring, same arm, but it’s super easy to wear and doesn’t require daily or weekly cleaning. That would be my only caveat re this bracelet- the cleaning and it might be harder to wear if it catches on things. Did you try it on?

IMO if it’s well made, classic and beautiful, and you love it, it works together.

Metallics go with everything, including each other.  Mix it up!

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  I believe that rose gold mixes best with white gold. I’ve never mixed yellow and rose gold. But I like rose gold in moderation; I don’t own any full rose gold pieces. Hubby gifted me a beautiful rose gold heart necklace on a silver toned chain, and I love that combination.

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  get what you like. I love mixed metals personally. My wedding set is comprised of a white gold engagement ring and a rose gold wedding band. My favorite bracelet that I own is silver, copper and bronze twisted together.

I have a total mix! I don’t wear all of these at once since I’m not all that into jewelry these days, but the main items in my rotation are a yellow gold Love cuff, yellow gold DBTY necklace, cheapo sterling CZ studs, and my platinum wedding set. I’d say go for it! 😊

I don’t mix metals because I don’t like the look of rose or yellow gold on my skin tone, but I’ve seen it done and think it looks really nice.  I usually see rose and white gold mixed, but a coworker of mine wears 3 thin braclets, one yellow, one rose, and one white.  They are all the same bracelet, just different colors, and I think it looks great.

I have a similar bracelet – it’s the infinity on a chain instead of a bangle.  I got that and the ring from my ex boyfriend.  It’s sadly sitting in a box because my husband doesn’t like me wearing it. undecided  Such a waste because I really loved it.

If you love it you should just get it! I find that metals always mix well with each other anyway.
