gold or silver jewellery?

what shade do you have?


Have you ever noticed that your skin has an undertone? To determine whether gold or silver suits you, we look at your skin tone and the undertone of your skin. If your skin has a warm undertone then gold will suit your skin perfectly. If you have a cool undertone, silver is the right match.

summer sun

What does your face look like after a day in the sun without lubricating well? Are you completely red or even burnt? Then your skin has a cool undertone. Are you pleased with the sun and do you have beautiful sun-tanned skin after a day of sun? Then gold is your favorite!



Your natural hair color often indicates which undertone your skin has. Cool colors like gray, ash blonde, brown hair without red shades and black hair with a blue glow then silver is perfect for you. Warm hair colors like golden blonde, copper tones and brown then you are a warm type and made to shine with gold.


your eyes

Your eyes reveal the undertone of your skin. Do you have brown eyes? Then your skin has a warm undertone and it is best to choose gold. Do you have blue or green eyes? Then you have a cool undertone and silver will suit better on you.

your wardrobe 

Last but not least, the colors in your wardrobe also say a lot about the color of the jewellery that goes with it. If your wardrobe consists of warm colors (red, yellow, brown, beige) then you probably have a warm undertone. If you have more cooler shades in your wardrobe (blue, purple, pink) then silver will probably suit you better.

your veins 

Your veins also have something to say. This may sound a bit strange, but you can also recognize the undertone of your skin by looking at your veins. The veins are deeper or higher per person, but you can often see the color well. The color may differ markedly. Whole blue veins means that your skin has a cool undertone and silver is the most beautiful with you. More green veins? Then you rather have a warm undertone and gold jewellery will suit you better. Are you in between? Luck you! You can wear both gold and silver jewellery.
