Is gold or silver best for me?

Passer guld eller sølv bedst til mig?

When it comes to jewellery, the most important thing is that the jewelery suits your taste, regardless of whether it is silver or gold. There is also no one who says that you cannot style both gold and silver jewelery together, if you wish. Your jewelery helps to express who you are and should make you feel beautiful and comfortable.

However, if you would like to match your jewelery with your skin tone so that you will shine in the best way, you can read here a small guide on whether you should invest in, for example, gold- or silver-plated jewellery.

Match your jewelery to your skin tone

If you are in doubt as to whether silver or gold suits you best, you can check your skin tone and let it guide you in your choice of jewellery.

Gold for a warm skin tone

If you have a warm skin tone, you usually have golden, yellowish or peach colored pigments in your skin. Other things that can point towards a warm skin tone are a dark eye color and hair color, and that you easily get a tan in the summer. In case you have a warm skin tone, then gold plated jewelry will suit you well.

Silver for you with a cold undertone

If your skin tone is cool, you are usually more pale in skin and often turn more red than brown in the sun. People with a cool skin tone most often have blue or green eyes and light or reddish hair. In case you have a cool skin tone, you can advantageously invest in silver plated jewellery.

How to find your skin tone

Fortunately, there is an easy way to find out if you have a warm or cool skin tone. You do this by looking at the color of your blood vessels on the underside of your arm at the wrist.

  • If you have bluish veins, you have a cold skin tone.
  • If you have greenish veins, you have a warm skin tone.
  • If the color of your veins is difficult to determine, you may have a neutral skin tone.

A neutral undertone suits both gold and silver

If you have a neutral undertone, then you are in luck, as both silver and gold suit your skin tone beautifully.

I already have one color of jewelry - is it too late to change?

It's never too late to change your mind about which color jewelry suits you best, and therefore start switching to another color or wearing both gold and silver.

Many have built up an entire jewelery box entirely of either silver or gold, because they once made a decision as a teenager whether they were into one or the other. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither are jewelry collections. So put cold water in your blood and have fun slowly putting together your new jewelery collection.
