Most people have a preference when it comes to choosing silver or gold jewellery. Gold is best suited to warmer complexions and darker skin, and skin that has yellow undertones. Silver suits cooler complexions and skin that has pink undertones. Although matching skin tone to precious metal beautifully accentuates your natural appearance, mixing it up from time to time can also achieve a fashionable and distinctive on trend look.
What’s Your Skin Type?
To work out if you are a Gold Goddess or a Silver Lady you will need to determine your skin tone. On your body locate an area where the veins are easily visible. The inside of the wrist is usually a good gauge. Look at the colour of your veins to determine your skin tone.
Cool skin tones have bluish coloured veins and the skin usually has a pink or rosy undertone. Warm skin tones have greenish coloured veins and a yellow or warm apricot undertone to the skin.
If your skin tone is warm stunning gold jewellery works best for you. Gorgeous glittering gold brightens your skin and illuminates the complexion. Wearing complementary pieces of precious gold will flatter your features and pull your look together. Choose an elegant Allobar 4mm Flat Ingot Necklace Gold Vermeil over sterling silver to draw attention to your neckline and face. Earrings should always be chosen to suit your hair length. Add a beautiful gold ring like the Allobar Atomic CZ Ring Gold Vermeil over sterling silver and a bracelet or cuff to give your outfit fashionable flair.
