Gold and silver are always the first choices when it comes to the material from which high-quality jewelry is made. They have significant intrinsic value, look gorgeous, and - if chosen wisely - can complement absolutely any outfit, be it elegant or casual.
Although both types of jewelry have advantages, they are not worn together most of the time. Gold and silver can be quite difficult to combine, especially when you have a variety of accessories.
So, if you want to add a new piece to your jewelry collection but aren't sure which material to choose, gold or silver, the information below may be of help for you.
First, we will talk about the most revered metal in the history of mankind - GOLD.
The Advantages Of Gold Jewelry
First of all, gold looks absolutely fabulous in combination with gemstones. Even though this metal can shine on its own, nothing compares to jewelry made from gold and adorned with precious or semi-precious stones.
For example, if you're looking to add something new to your jewelry collection, you can find a wide range of rings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, earrings, or cufflinks - vintage and antique - in our online store, available in a variety of gorgeous designs and shades. They can be worn in any setting, adding style to any outfit.
Gold jewelry will always remain classic and can be integrated into all outfits. For example, a pair of gold earrings, elegant and minimalist, complements a neat and refined appearance. At the same time, a gold statement necklace can make you shine brightly, turning a mundane outfit into a spectacular one.
Furthermore, gold is a classic precious metal that does not wear out or devalue. It's a well-known fact that the value of gold will always be significant, so a gold jewelry collection can be considered a safe investment.
Wearing Gold Jewelry - Recommendations
We advise you to wear gold according to your skin tone. Of course, anyone can wear gold jewelry, regardless of shade and skin tone. However, if you want your accessories to complement your features and fit you perfectly, match them to your skin tone.
So wear yellow gold if you have a warm skin tone and white gold if you have a cool skin tone. You can determine your undertone by the shade of your veins: green veins indicate a warm undertone, blue veins a cool undertone, and purple veins a neutral undertone. If you have a neutral undertone, rose gold suits you perfectly!
Also, be on your guard when buying a piece of jewelry. Check its karat number and see if the accessory is made of this precious metal or is just gold-blown. This will ensure you make an informed purchase.
The Advantages Of Silver Jewelry
What are the advantages of silver jewels? They are elegant and make any stone stand out. Unlike gold, which stands out on its own, silver has the property of remaining neutral and being perfectly complemented by natural stones of different shapes and colors.
Silver also has a cool and mysterious look that expresses elegance and looks great in refined outfits. It can easily be combined with other metals, such as white gold. It can adorn day or evening outfits, casual or elegant, always giving an extra touch of style.
A lot can be said about silver jewelry. This metal is considered beneficial to health in many ways, some scientifically confirmed, others still disputed by experts. However, you should know that, indeed, silver is an antibacterial material, that can regulate body temperature and balance the emotional state.
Wearing Silver Jewelry - Recommendations
We advise you to coordinate your jewelry with your make-up. Silver has a unique, cool, and mysterious glow. That's why jewelry made of this metal is perfect for people with a cool or neutral undertone. They can accentuate the aesthetic effect by choosing make-up in shades of blue, purple, or green, as well as pearly greys or even glittery blushes.
Also, it is a good idea to buy silver jewelry with natural precious or semi-precious stones.
If you want to invest in really special jewelry, choose mixes of silver and stones that remind you of nature, such as emerald, sapphire, aquamarine, moonstone, quartz, or topaz. They look great together and enhance each other!
In the end, whichever material you opt for, you'll still make a great choice. Both gold and silver are precious metals, and accessories made from them will shine in any outfit! And so will you!
