Here is how I go about layering my hand jewelry:
Below is about as "blank" of a palette as I get. My favorite ring, a silver chain bracelet, and a black hair tie. These are constants on my hand.
I like to add a few different types of bracelets to give my "arm party" some depth. First some color/texture (friendships bracelets, beads, painted bangles) and then my structured pieces (metal bangles, cuffs).
I also have different groupings of rings. I usually choose (at least) one big, statement ring--which I like to put on my pointer finger. Then I fill in with other, smaller rings.
Here are few examples of how I mixed these pieces:
mixed metals: can be scary at first--but my advice is to use some in between pieces (such as my brass/brushed gold ring on my pointer finger) to help bridge the gap between your bright golds and silvers.
blue color story + silvers: I tend to stick with certain groupings for my colors--blues and cool colors I pair with silver and warmer reds and oranges I pair with gold.
silvers + neutrals: this is an everyday look for me. those are four of my favorite bracelets (all good quality pieces that won't turn my wrist green if they get wet/sweaty!). If I am in a rush these are my go-to pieces.
I don't think I could ever quit my bracelet/ring obsession! It has gotten to a point where I feel naked if I leave home without some type of adornment on my wrists. Is jewelry on your hands part of your daily getting-dressed routine?
