The Great Debate: Matching vs Clashing

Forget thinking clashing your jewellery shades is a fashion faux pas, according to the new season catwalks, the taboo trend of clashing is making a serious comeback. Think of it as more street style snap worthy rather than ‘omg I can’t be seen wearing this’. Unless you’re more of a dedicated matching accessorise-er? Devoted to strictly silver or forever faithful to just gold? It’s the battle of match versus clash, choose your side.


If you prefer a more subtle, simplistic approach to your accessorising, then matching is the way forward. Think chunky silver necklaces with silver bangles or perhaps a statement rose gold watch combined with matching stacking rings and layering dainty rose gold necklaces. Or even take it to the matchy-matchy extreme and opt for our eclectic selection of jewellery sets.

For the fashion forwards; clashing golds, silvers and rose golds are a fun way to make a statement with your jewellery. Chunky gold bracelets, statement silver hoop earrings and rose gold rings seem like they shouldn’t work together, but they so do – especially when they’re paired with neutral toned clothes so everyone can really see the variety of shades you’re working. What happens if you’re not as brave as these fashion forwards but the mixing of metals is intriguing you? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered as well, why not opt for a two-tone piece or browse our vast range of Chamilia charm beads, but don’t choose a theme, just mix and match as you please.
