Whether to pick gold or silver jewellery has always been a long-debated topic and there’s plenty of confusion around which metal to settle for. Aurex Jewellery has for years manufactured both gold and silver jewellery. Below are some pointers to assist you figure out which metal to settle for.
As a starting point, pick a dominant metal and add highlights with another. You can try combining different metals of stacking and cocktail rings, layered necklaces, and bangle stacks to see how they look. However, these days, it’s important that “You do you”, the rules and laws of fashion and the like, are being disregarded and broken. But one might still like to use the rules as a guide to help get started with coordinating jewellery to suit you and your personal sense of style.
Traditionally, people who have darker skin shades ranging from olive to ebony can usually rock gold jewellery. The darker skin tones make the colour of the metal stand out well, which creates a very striking look. When you have a darker shade, you can also get away with silver, only chunkier pieces as the skin tone may overpower thin silver jewellery pieces. When choosing gemstones, opt for stones like garnets, sapphires, and rubies. These look great against dark skin shades.
People with very fair skin shades should usually stay away from gold jewellery. Gold jewellery generally make fair skin look washed out. Gold jewellery may clash with the warm undertones of very pale skin. If your skin colour is pale, stick to silver. Silver looks stunning on fair skin.
One other most important aspect to consider when choosing jewellery is budget. It is important to note that gold is much more expensive than silver because gold is a more valuable precious metal. However, different specs will change the cost of jewellery. Stones can also vary in price if the jewellery is studded. Knowing these details will help you set a more realistic budget.
