According to the fashion police, (I just love the idea I get in my mind when I hear “the fashion police”), it’s okay to mix and match metals. Once it was seen as a fashion sin to mix different colours of metal. It's a good darn thing it isn’t now because I’ve been doing it for years. What always had me in a quandary was my wedding ring. Of course it is yellow gold, right? Then I went and started a Silver Business. Actually I first started a gold business.
It’s so funny looking back. I had this gold business. I would sell in the phone companies and most of the hospitals in the state of California. How is that you might ask? It’s a valid question. I did fundraisers. For the phone companies it was for the Telephone Pioneers of America and for the hospitals it was for the auxiliary* usually. I would set up a display of earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces and pendants and I would sell to the employees at the phone company and to just about anyone in the hospitals but mainly the staff. Well of course I have digressed once again. So back to the subject of Silver.
It was in the early 90’s that I added Sterling Silver to my gold business. I thought what the heck and I would live dangerously. So I bought maybe 40 pairs of earrings. Well in the very first show with the silver earrings I practically sold out. Who knew? I literally had like 3 pairs left. It was like I had hit the gold mine, funnily enough, that was the name of my company - The Gold Mine. A slight problem similar to my gold wedding ring, my gold business was now selling silver. And you know what? I never looked back.
Below is a nice chart for choosing necklines for necklaces. I thought you might enjoy it. One rule for sure is to break any rules that you see fit.
Well, that is all for this one!
