Each pendant is given a different patterned finish for intriguing appeal. Pair the necklace with matching earrings to spread the shine and complete the look.

Simple, hammered rectangles in shades of both silver and gold come together in different sizes and lengths to form a crescent shape. Paired with matching earrings that dangle, gently clinking silver against gold, this jewelry set is a match made for trend-setters

A three-tiered pendant in copper, gold, and silver looks just like a raindrop making a ripple effect on the water. This necklace is an understated representation of the mixed metal trend, encouraging observers to get just a little bit closer to see the detail.  And with earrings to match, this is a simple, sophisticated set.
