Metals Guide - Silver and Gold

Wearing silver with yellow or rose gold jewellery was once considered a fashion faux pas, but combining these metals has become increasingly accepted by the fashion world as people expand their jewellery collections.

Jewellery designers themselves are now combining the two metals to create some gorgeous pieces of jewellery including necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Silver and gold are a match made in heaven; the warm gold is a beautiful contrast against the cool and icy silver. This combination is also becoming increasingly popular in the manufacture of watches, where the two colour metals are combined to create a striking look that is suited to everyone.

Silver looks amazing against all colours of gold, whether it's yellow, white or rose. You will see that it is often combined with gold of different carats for example: ’Silver and 9ct Yellow Gold’. Don't be thrown if you don’t understand carats – a lot of us don't as they can be quite confusing if not explained properly! Luckily for you, we’ve set up a guide Gold Carats Explained, which is extremely simple and easy to follow – promise! It will help guide you in the gold carat you would like to purchase. So, don't be afraid to mix and match metals and buy two colour pieces – it is all the rage!

As a guarantee of purity, combined silver and gold jewellery will be stamped with a silver hallmark and a gold minor mark indicating the purity of both the silver and gold content.
