Adorning yourself with the perfect piece of jewellery is akin to finding the key that unlocks your inner radiance. But in the vast world of gold jewellery, 925 silver, and rose gold, how do you navigate the choices to ensure your jewellery complements and enhances your unique style? 

How do I choose between gold or silver jewellery?

Choosing the right jewellery for your skin tone can be daunting, so this blog will talk you through our top tips on whether to go for gold, silver or both. Many people feel overwhelmed and unsure of what will work best for them, but when it comes to gold jewellery and silver jewellery, the good news is that both metals can work well for any skin tone. 

Is my skin tone better suited to gold jewellery?

If you have a warm skin tone, which means you have yellow, olive or brown undertones, then gold jewellery is the perfect choice for you. Yellow gold adds warmth and richness to your skin, making it look radiant and glowing. Rose gold is an excellent choice for those with cool skin tones as it adds a hint of warmth and complements the pink, red or blue undertones. White gold is a versatile option that suits all skin tones, so it's a great choice if you're not sure which shade to go for.
