If you are among the people who enjoy mixing up their jewelry wardrobe, you may consider pieces with multiple metal colors. These pieces, such as multi-color bracelets, add visual interest to an ensemble and may be easy to match to previously owned items such as earrings, necklaces and rings. To choose the best two-tone bracelets, consider the finishes of the jewelry you wish to pair the bracelets with, the underlying colors present in your skin tone, and the shades that are prevalent in your clothing wardrobe.

In the past, fashion etiquette dictated that you should never wear jewelry made of different metals. This meant that if you chose to wear silver earrings, you had to leave your gold rings at home. Nowadays, the rules are a bit more relaxed. You may choose to mix jewelry metals without attempting to match them at all. Alternatively, wearing two-tone bracelets in gold and silver can help to tie these accessories together.

Gold jewelry is not limited to the traditional yellow color. Mixing silver or palladium with gold results in white gold, a metal that is similar in appearance to silver and platinum and which may be substituted for either. Adding copper to gold gives the metal a reddish tone and produces what is referred to as rose gold. Two-tone bracelets may consist of a combination of any two of these tones, and multi-color bracelets in rose, yellow and white gold give you even more options for earrings, necklaces and rings.

Your complexion should also play a part in how you choose jewelry metals. If your skin has golden or yellow undertones, yellow gold jewelry should look best on you. People with blue or pink undertones to their skin should choose silver or white gold jewelry. This is especially important for earrings and necklaces, as they are the items closest to the face. Pair earrings and necklaces in your best metal tone with rings in a different metal, and add two-tone bracelets for a mix-and-match look.

As a general rule, yellow gold jewelry looks best with lighter colors of clothing, as well as pieces in the neutral colors of white and brown. Silver or white gold goes well with darker colors and black. In the case of two-tone clothing ensembles, you should try to match your jewelry to the color that is most prominent in the outfit, or choose two-tone bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
