How To Pair Your Watch, Bracelets and Rings

Focus on the details

When it comes to pairing accessories such as watches, bracelets, and rings, there are a few rules that everyone should keep in mind. Although it might seem relatively straightforward, finding the right balance and combination might not be as simple as you think. If you have felt like your outfit is missing something, it could be because you have not utilized the power of accessories to add that special finishing touch. We have put together four looks, two for women and two for men, that serve as a guide on the different ways you can style accessories in a chic and harmonious manner. Feel free to take our suggestions as inspiration for your style.

What’s the secret to pairing your watch and bracelet, you might ask? The answer is straightforward; do the two complement each other? If they do, you are on the right track. If they don’t, then you might want to reconsider – unless you like an edgy look.

For those wondering whether it is fashionably acceptable to wear a watch and bracelet on the same wrist, we’ve got good news – it is. The rule of thumb is that the more bracelets paired with the watch, the less attention the watch itself receives. We at Daniel Wellington prefer a more understated style, allowing the bracelets to flatter the watch, rather than upstage it.

1: Spring look
– Rose gold watch

For a neutral and monochromatic palette, you ideally want to contrast with a bold and vibrant color, like rose-gold. To complement the Daniel Wellington Iconic Link, we paired the Classic Slim Bracelet in Satin White with the Classic Ring.


The white enamel in the bracelet coordinates flawlessly with the outfit, and ultimately, ties the whole look together neatly. Complementary colors are guaranteed to make the look more cohesive, whereas contrasting colors, like the rose-gold details shown here, become the focal point of the look.

2: Black outfit
– Silver watch

When wearing an all-black palette, cooler tone shades tend to match gracefully. Here we paired the Iconic Link in silver, with a black dial, to complement the outfit. Seeing as the watch is silver, pairing a bracelet in the same color is the way to go. 


Since the look is already quite saturated, we suggest keeping the jewelry minimal, which is why we added the Classic Bracelet and Classic Ring. These three accessories paired together round off the look, oozing edginess and elegance simultaneously.

3: Summer look
– Dress watch

Making a statement in the winter is easy because it’s all in the layers, throw on a big coat and you’re good to go. Summer, on the other hand, is a whole different ball game. We tend to go for light and airy pieces to keep us comfortable and cool. The drawback is that outfits can seem too ‘simple’ and hence, unfinished. The silver lining, however, is that they become the ideal canvas for accessorizing.


The Classic Sheffield is the type of dress watch everyone needs. The leather strap provides substance, whilst the rose-gold dial, paired with the Classic Bracelet and Classic Ring, completes the look with a dapper finish.

4: Business casual outfit
– Rose gold watch

We round off the list with a formal, refined, and sophisticated look. We said this once, and we’ll say it again, nothing looks smoother than a dark palette and a black dial. Finish it off with some rose-gold details to add a dash of color to the outfit and you’re good to go. We paired it with the Iconic Link, Classic Bracelet and Classic Ring.


When mixing and matching silver and gold, make sure to stick to two shades – one tone of gold and silver.
