What suits you better - gold or silver? Take the test!

Some girls are dulled by white gold or silver, while others are overwhelmed by gold jewelry. Why does it happen? The reason is that the color of jewelry, just like clothing, should be chosen in accordance with your color type. However, how do you know what suits you better - gold or silver? To help you determine, we have prepared an exciting quiz test.


What metal color suits you?


You can figure out which color of jewelry is best for you by taking into account several factors. So, let's have a closer look at them.


  1. Determine your skin tone


The first step in choosing between gold or silver is to identify your skin tone. It can be warm, cold or neutral.


  • Warm undertone. If your wrist veins appear green and your skin tans easily, you have a warm undertone. Gold jewelry usually suits such people. Yellow or pink gold will emphasize your skin tone and make it more glowing.


  • Cold undertone. If your veins look blue or purple, and your skin is prone to redness and frequently gets sunburned, you have a cold undertone. In this case, silver or white gold is the best choice. These metals will perfectly match your color type and give your look elegance and freshness.


  • Neutral undertone. If it's difficult to determine the color of your veins, or if you can clearly see both green and blue vessels on your wrist, it means that you will look equally good in silver and gold, as you have a neutral undertone. In this case, you can choose jewelry depending on your mood and outfit.


2. Consider your style and preferences


Your style of dress and taste also play an important role when choosing a metal color.


  • Classic. If you like wearing something conservative and elegant, you can choose both gold and silver jewelry. Silver and white gold will add sophistication and elegance, while gold plated silver, yellow or rose gold will demonstrate your status and exquisite taste.



  • Bohemian. For boho lovers, yellow and pink shades of gold will be the perfect solution. Accessories of this color will emphasize the brightness and uniqueness of your style.



  • Casual. If your wardrobe consists of comfortable, simple and laconic clothes, pay attention to universal jewelry in silver shades. Their cool shine will perfectly complement any of your outfits.



And of course, don't forget about cases with a dress code, when the invitation to an event will already indicate what you should choose.
