Do you match the hardware on your bags and accessories?

No, I usually try and match the hardware on the fob to the bag but I don't worry about matching my personal jewelry to the hardware on my bag.

The only time I might do that if I was getting really dressed up to attend a wedding or fancy formal event, but even then probaby not.

In fact, now that I think about it, the last 2 events I attended (a wedding and a banquet) the hardware on my purse didn't match my jewelry!

I like nickel hardware and all my jewelry is white gold and sterling silver. I hate mixing :)

I only wear silver/white gold/platinum jewelry so I never even think to match with the hardware on my bags! I have bags with silver and bags with gold, doesn't matter to me so much on a bag. I'm not really into the matchy matchy thing, my wallets, makeup cases, wristlets, etc don't have to match my bag. I love tons of colors and patterns!

I an definitely not that matchy matchy. The only time it really bothered me was with my siggy bag that had gold leather also.

Or you can mix everything up on purpose: lots of gold tones and silver tones, all together.
Agreed! I feel this way too

I don't...my wedding jewelry is yellow gold, other is white or silver or platinum, and I like to mix it up. On my bags, however, I like the hardware to match for my accessories and whatever is on the bag. It's not a dealbreaker, but I do prefer it that way.

No, I love to mix it up. My wedding rings are a mix of white and yellow gold, and so is my favorite ring on my right hand which is a designer piece.
I always mix my other jewelry also.
Actually if you look at the recent designer jewelry, a lot of it is mixed metals. I just bought earrings by Mark Jacobs that are gold, rose gold and silver.

No. All the jewelry I wear is silver/white gold except for one set of rings that is rose gold.

I don't wear yellow gold jewelry ever but it doesn't bother me if the bag has gold or brass hardware because if I love it I will still carry it.
