White Gold or Yellow?

When selecting a piece of jewellery you normally have to decide between silver or white gold and traditional yellow gold.  While it will ultimately be a choice based on your personal preference, there is more to take into account before making a decision.

When you choose what clothing to wear you always take into account what colours that you like and what suits your colouring.  You need to take those same things into account when choosing which colour metal to wear.

Cool skin tones look best with metals such as silver, platinum, and white gold.  Warm skin tones are better suited to yellow based metals such as yellow or rose gold.

Do you know which skin tone you have?

If I ask you what your favourite colours are, that is usually a good indicator.

People with cool skin tones usually prefer pinks, blues, purples and whites.  People with warm skin tones are likely to choose oranges, yellows, rusts and earthy colours.

If you are still not sure, have a look at the inside of your wrists.  What colour are the veins that you see?  If they look blue your skin is cool.  If they appear slightly green then your skin probably has a warm yellowish undertone.

If you are buying jewellery for someone else don’t forget to check which colour they currently wear.  There is no point buying a piece of jewellery in a metal that they are unlikely to wear.

Etched in Memories offers a choice of metals so that there is something to suit everyone.
