Morgan Leigh's Formula for Mixing Metals

February 22nd, 2021

Mixing metals allows you to customize your look and increase the wearability of your pieces.  While there’s not a formula for how to mix metals, the best way to start is to add two-tone pieces to your jewelry collection.

Once you have a variety of metals, add different silhouettes and details, something black for contrast or a pop of color for brightness. Then you can easily style any look you want from delicate to bold, subdued to striking.  Mixing metals can take your look from ordinary to extraordinary in a matter of minutes and really maximize your rotation of pieces.

Here are Morgan Leigh’s suggestions on how to start styling mixed metals and creating a look that is stunning and very wearable.

Her Bracelet Stack:

Start with the Lagos Signature Caviar Two-Tone Beaded Bracelet ($1250)

Add Ippolita yellow gold and silver bangles, like their Classico Large Hammered Bangle in 18k yellow gold ($1795) and their Classico Hammered Signature Bangle Bracelet in sterling silver ($395)

Finish off your stack with the John Hardy Two-Tone Asli Classic Chain Link Station Bracelet ($1495)

Morgan Leigh’s Ring Pairings:

Great solo or paired with other rings, the John Hardy Classic Chain 3.5mm Two-Tone Band is timeless and modern (starting at $550).

The John Hardy Classic Chain Spear Ring with Black Sapphires ($595) adds that dark contrast that is always in style.

 How Morgan Leigh Layers Necklaces:

I have three dainty yellow gold necklaces that I layer and wear everyday (variety of choices at Floyd & Green).

When I want to kick up my look, I add a necklace with length and dimension, like the Lagos Two Tone Lariat ($600) and the Caviar Icon Gemstone Necklace in onyx ($300).
