How to style two-toned jewelry

Remember the days when wearing black and brown together was an absolute no? Many of us lived and died by this rule and others like, “no white after labor day”. But when it comes to recent style and trends, those rules are dead and gone.  

Years ago we were forced to choose between gold or silver because no one would wear both together (the horror!). Well some rules are just meant to be broken. Silpada celebrates uniqueness through artisan jewelry and we encourage you to embrace your own personal style, because being you will never go out of fashion.

In other words, we ourselves are responsible for our happiness and misery and we create our own universe.
