Mixing Silver and Gold

Q: I wear several gold rings -- including my wedding band. Is it okay to wear silver earrings and necklaces with the gold rings? I heard that jewelry should always be the same color. Is that true?
A: Rules of jewelry etiquette once dictated that silver jewelry be worn with silver, gold be worn with gold, and never the two shall meet. But these rules are changing. While wearing just one metallic element does give you a more traditional look, mixing them isn't always a no-no. In fact, upscale jewelry designers like David Yurman have been showcasing items that mix the elements within the same piece. You might also try wearing a piece such as a watch in stainless steel with gold detailing to pull your look together. As for your gold wedding band, that's a special item and an exception to the rule!
