It’s an age-old debate, isn’t it? Gold or Silver jewellery - how do you know which looks best on you? Both look beautiful in their own unique ways, but at times it can seem almost impossible to choose between them. Trust us; we’ve all been there!
It’s no secret that picking out the right jewellery can effortlessly tie a look together. It can instantly lift an outfit from a 6 to a 10 in a matter of seconds. So, we decided to create a simple guide to help you *finally* decide which type of jewellery would be best suited to you.
Oh, and we’ve also added in a few SIWD jewellery recommendations for you to treat yourself to - because who says you need to have a reason? (you’re welcome).
Sleek in Silver
Silver has such a unique quality to it. It can glimmer and reflect light like no other metal, which makes it versatile as well as beautiful.
Silver jewellery best complements those with cooler skin tones and makes for the perfect day-to-day go-to. If you don’t already know what kind of skin tone you have, if the veins on your wrist are blue and you tend to burn easily, you most likely have a cool skin tone!
Because silver matches nearly every colour, you don’t have to worry about your gorgeous jewellery not matching your fave everyday outfit! Transform any look with beautiful silver pieces which will make a much needed new addition to your jewellery collection. The sparkling finish of silver is guaranteed to make you stand out, and it looks even more beautiful paired with bold or icy and metallic coloured make-up.
One of our absolute fave silver pieces is our Circle of Life Necklace made with sterling silver and CZ diamond stones! An elegant silver pendant designed to elevate any look - and it’s only £45!
Gold jewellery is a classic favourite. If you have more of a warm skin tone (your veins will usually look more green in colour) and you tan quite easily, gold is definitely the one for you!
Unlike other metals, gold has the natural ability to glow. When paired with warm or darker skin tones, it can create a really striking statement look. Outfits with rich and earthy tones complement gold jewellery beautifully! Bright colours really make the gold pop, making gold jewellery an absolute must when making a statement.
Team gold pieces with your favourite outfit and opt for an understated, classic make-up look to make it shine through. One of our go-to gold pieces is the Yellow Gold Plated Winged Initial Necklace which makes for a personal touch and a nice little twist on an old classic!
Best of both
If you’re in split minds between silver and gold, or maybe you can’t decide on your skin tone, rose gold is the perfect solution!
Rose gold and copper coloured jewellery tend to suit most people, no matter their skin tone. These pieces are so versatile because they go with everything and will instantly brighten up your jewellery collection. Our Winged Initial Necklace also comes in rose gold!
Still can’t decide? We don’t blame you! Just because individual jewellery suits certain skin tones more, doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing the timeless pieces you love. Picking out jewellery that makes you feel happy and confident is all that really matters!
