These Two-Tone Jewels Prove Platinum Is Ideal For Mixing Metals


Platinum is a splendid choice for any category of jewelry. Its heft feels positively luxurious to hold, and it does wonders to complement the glitter of a diamond.

There are many good reasons for consumers to be interested in platinum, but some obstacles, too, with one in particular: yellow gold.

Gold has been crushing the fashion scene. It’s wildly popular in the wedding jewelry market too, and consumers are piling on chains, curating stud earrings, stacking bands, and pairing pendants—all in yellow gold.

So when the time comes to select an engagement ring (or a wedding or anniversary band), those who fear the dreaded metal clashing opt for yellow gold there as well.

It doesn’t have to be daunting, the thought of mixing and matching our metals, but how about these to bridge the gap: A selection of styles where the combination of platinum and yellow gold (or rose gold!) is baked into one, delicious bite.

It helps that two-tone styles are hot right now, even if, as an overall trend, the look comes and goes. But a really great piece of jewelry is unwavering in its favor, skimming the waves of what’s “in” or “out” with ease, transcending stages and seasons.

For proof, look to the jewels below, in an assortment of categories and appearances. Those hoping to score a platinum wedding set should do so with no fear of wearing it alongside their favorite yellow (or rose) gold jewels—in fact, they should do so boldly! These jewels show there’s essentially nothing platinum can’t do.
