If you've ever found yourself wondering whether gold or silver jewellery suits you better, we have your answer.
It’s a dilemma that has plagued women for generations.
When you're choosing jewellery, the metal can be just as important as the design. The right jewellery metal will truly emphasise your skin tone and enhance your natural beauty. So, we hope you will find this article useful :)
Disclaimer: You can wear any colour or metal you want—there are no rules! This is just a simple guide if you need some help deciding which colours and metals will look best on you!
#1 Pick based on which complements your skin tone.
A quick glance in the mirror will help you determine your skin tone and undertones. Simply look at the veins on your wrist:
If they appear blue or purple, you have cool undertones and should stick to cool-toned jewellery metals.
If your veins appear greenish, you have warm undertones and should choose warm-toned metals. You’ll look best in gold jewellery with a yellow hue. Stick to 18ct and 22ct gold if possible: these contain more pure gold than other carats, meaning they have a truer colour.
If yellow gold doesn’t appeal to you, try rose or white gold accessories instead – these will make your skin glow with warmth and radiance.
#2 Consider your wardrobe, does it consist mostly of cool or warm colours?
Use silver accessories with cool-toned clothes and gold jewellery with warm-toned clothing. You can even take it a step further by incorporating colours beyond gold and silver!
If you have lots of blues and greens in your wardrobe then choose accessories that are made from materials like turquoise stones or even pearls. If there are more reds and yellows then go with something like rubies or sapphires. Choose a metal that contrasts with your skin tone.
#3 Choose a metal that contrasts with your skin tone.
The next thing to consider when choosing a metal for accessorising is whether it contrasts against the colour of your skin. For example, if you have fair skin then gold jewellery would look great but if you’re darker, then silver would work better.
#4 You can mix and match with different colours of jewellery but keep one colour predominant.
For example, if you want to wear gold earrings and a silver necklace, choose a necklace that is predominantly silver and just has a gold accent.
In conclusion, there are honestly a lot of ways to pair your jewellery!
The main takeaway: There is no right or wrong way to choose a metal for accessorising your outfit, just have fun and experiment! But we do hope you have a much better idea of how to accessorise your favourite outfits now :)) All the best!
