Silver and gold are both precious metals often worn as jewelry. Both have their advantages – silver is a little more affordable, while gold is more durable and is often associated with luxury. However, for many jewelry lovers, the question of whether to wear silver or gold isn’t about that; instead, it’s about which one they suit more.
Why Does it Matter?
People mainly want to know whether they suit silver or gold because of aesthetics. When investing in a high-quality piece of jewelry, you want to know that it will harmonize with your skin and that it can become a timeless piece that you wear again and again. By picking the right one for you, you’ll feel more confident and beautiful when wearing your jewelry.
Warm vs. Cool Undertones
When it comes to which metal a person suits more, it’s all about the undertones. Everyone has slightly different skin tones; in the case of warm undertones, gold tends to look better, and in the case of cooler undertones, silver usually looks nicer.
Sometimes, it’s easy to tell if someone has warm or cool undertones, and other times, it can be a little trickier. Those with warm undertones might have hazel eyes, a warmer hair color (such as auburn), and skin that tans easily. On the other hand, people with cool undertones tend to have ash blond/brown or black hair with blue, green, or dark brown/black eyes.
Keep in mind that there are other skin tones – some are neutral and thus in between warm and cool. In these cases, you can rock both silver and gold, and you can simply go on preference!
Does Silver or Gold Look Better on You? How to Find Out
You might not be able to determine whether you have warm or cool undertones just by looking in the mirror (for example, you might have a warm hair color but blue eyes and very pale skin). Luckily, there is a straightforward trick for determining whether silver or gold looks better on you, and all you need to do is look at your wrist!
Examine your wrist in good lighting. Then, look closely at your wrists. What color are they? If your veins look green, then that’s a sure sign you have warm undertones. If they look blue, then you have cool undertones. If they look somewhere in the middle – a green-blue shade, then you likely have neutral undertones.
