Advice from the Experts at Diamonds Direct

It’s the year of mixed metals! The trend started in everyday fashion jewelry and has now graced the wedding and fine jewelry industry. Where we used to see couples asking for the exact match to their engagement ring and a men’s band in the same metal, we are now seeing a mix of metals and two tone rings.

Ladies are now looking to break up their all white gold ring candy with a stackable, alternate gold ring between their engagement ring and wedding band. We’ve even started to see a favoring toward multiple stackable bands in mixed metals in place of an engagement ring or anniversary band. Men are even in on the mixed metal game these days with two-tone bands. If you just can’t choose between white, rose, and yellow gold, now you can have your wedding cake and eat it, too!
