This has been a topic of interest for most people, especially for those in the gems and jewellery industry. There has been much confusion about which metal may suit their skin colour, sense of style and, most importantly, budget. If you, too, are confused, read below on how to choose which metal suits you best.
When choosing metal colours, a classic tip is to first consider your skin tone. Skin tone is an important factor in determining which accessory colour delivers the right look. While gold is better suited to warmer skin tones, silver appeals to cooler and lighter skin tones. If you’re unsure about your skin tone, do the following test: hold out your arm straight with your palms facing upward. Then, look at the colour of your veins and skin between your wrist and elbow. Blue or purple veins denote cooler skin tones, while green veins denote warmer skin tones. However, even those with fair skin could have warm undertones and those with dark skin could have cool ones. So, figuring out which jewellery looks better according to your skin tone can be quite tricky.
House of Hue prides itself upon matching jewellery to your outfits. For instance, silver jewellery pairs well with cool-toned outfits, less flamboyant than what gold may require. Despite the popularity of gold, silver jewellery has become the new emerging star in fashion! Even the likes of Rihanna and Kim Kardashian are trading their gold in for silver.
With regards to budget, it is important to distinguish between gold and silver in terms of value. Gold is far more expensive than silver because it is a more valuable precious metal. Although there are inexpensive options for gold, such as gold filled or gold vermeil, many youths turn to silver.
What’s more is that you can explore so much even with coloured jewellery! You can stack as many rings and bracelets as you like. In the olden days, gold and silver couldn’t be worn together. Now, you can mix and match as per your enthusiasm and choice. We, at House of Hue, recommend changing it up from day-to-day!
