Heavy jewellery is one kind of style I adore. Multiple rings, layered necklaces, strands of bracelets running up the wrist. I always mix metals, the best way to do this without looking dishevelled or messy is to have one or two pieces which have a combination of bronze, silver and gold in the one piece. There are lots of jewellery around now with both silver and gold, as the old rule ‘don’t mix metals’ was meant to be broken anyway :)
Watches are a good key piece for doing this, such as the one below, allowing you to wear both metals in one outfit .
I am a big fan of metal jewellery (as opposed to beaded, wooden and stones) however, I do like some colour, but most are quite neutral to go with my wardrobe, such as greys, whites, blacks and browns.
A simple outfit is the best ‘blank canvas’ for this style, black and grey can make any coloured jewellery and bright costume jewellery stand up. Make the jewellery the focus of your outfit, rather than putting together an elaborate look and then piling on loads of rings and necklaces as well, this look is rarely effective.
