Define The Colour Of Your Metal Based On Your Skin Tone

Jewellery is an essential part of any outfit, and it's an excellent way to express yourself. But when it comes to choosing the right metal for your skin tone, it can be challenging to know where to start. Different metals complement different tones, and it's important to choose the right one that will enhance your natural glow.

The general rule is that cool skin tones are complemented by silver while warmer tones work well with gold. If you are somewhere in the middle or a more neutral tone, you are lucky – you’ll look fresh and bright wearing any metal colour.

While gold is obviously a popular metal for jewellery, it can be a bit trickier to choose the right shade for you. Gold comes in a range of colours, from yellow to rose to white gold. Yellow gold can work well with warm-toned skin, while white gold can complement cool-toned skin. Rose gold, with its pinkish hue, can work well with both warm and cool skin tones.

Though it can often be overlooked, silver is a metal that complements a wide range of skin tones. As a cool metal, it naturally pairs well with cool tones, such as those with blue or pink undertones. If you have fair skin, silver can help to brighten your complexion.

But if you have warm undertones, silver can still work well for you. You can pair it with warmer colours to create a striking contrast. Additionally, silver jewellery can work well with both cool and warm-toned outfits, making it a really versatile option.

Silver jewellery can easily be dressed up or down, making it a great addition to a good capsule wardrobe. From delicate and understated pieces to bold and statement jewellery, there's a piece for every occasion. Silver is also a more affordable option than gold, making it accessible to a wider range of people.

In summary, while gold is a beautiful metal for jewellery, silver remains the best all-rounder as far as the metal colour is concerned, and likely to suit the most skin tones. It's a versatile and affordable option that can complement a wide range of colours and outfits, making it an essential addition to any jewellery collection.

When it comes to our Silverwood Jewellery, we use a variety of light, red, and brown woods, which again complement different skin tones.

Light woods, such as sycamore, can really stand out on darker skin but did you know that it can also enhance fair skin tones and bring out blue or green eyes?

Red woods, such as our bubinga, look amazing on warm-toned skin and bring out brown or hazel eyes. But we find this colour to be the most versatile and will suit almost everyone.
