What's Your Metal?

The dilemma of buying jewellery. Should I get that necklace I've been eyeing out in silver? Or gold? Or maybe rose gold? Our recommendation? Choose the one that best accentuates your skin tone. 

Here's our guide to choosing a metal that can illuminate your natural tones and give you that glow like the goddess you are. 

First, what is your skin tone?

Are you cool, warm or neutral? A quick way to find out - have a look at the veins on your wrist. 

You have a cool skin tone if your veins are blue or purple. If your veins are more of a green hue, then you have a warm skin tone. If it's neither of these, or a mix of everything, then you most likely have a neutral skin tone.

Now, do you burn or tan? If you tend to burn, you're most likely a cool tone. If you're one of the lucky ones and simply tan, you're most likely warm toned. 

For the cool toned goddess

Silver is your go to. It gives a striking, fresh and radiant look. Yellow gold is your friend too, if you're feeling a tad bit fancier.

For the warm toned goddess

Lucky you, because yellow gold, rose gold and silver all look great, but yellow gold in particular is the perfect accent to make you glow.

Your skin tone complements all types of metals. Why not try mixing it up and combine all 3?
