Before N purchased my engagement ring, I wore two stackable Saundra Messinger hammered rings that he gave me as a gift (pictured above). I grew to love the versatility of the mixed metals - that I could wear silver or gold jewelry and my rings would compliment either choice. Two-tone elements can work very well for autumn and winter events.

Here are some lovely silver and gold inspirations:

* Jennifer Behr Star & Moon bobby pins.
Paper Source Silver Stars Gold Dust Vellum.
* from
Luisa Beccaria's absolutely amazing Fall 2008 Collection.

Perfect Bound's charming blog.

PS: Is the idea of an enchanting Autumn floating around in your mind, too?
