Is it okay to mix metals when layering necklaces?

Mixing yellow gold and white gold or yellow gold with silver used to be a fashion faux pas. Today, contemporary fashion encourages mixing metal color and texture as a fun way to add interest to your style. One way to show that the choice is intentional is to carry the mixed metals over to your bracelets and rings, which ends up unifying the look. 

Can I request a custom size or length if I do not see it as an option?
