Choosing the Right Gold Colour for You

If you have ever tried on a piece of jewellery and thought it looked better in the case, then it may be the wrong colour of gold for you. But don't despair—we have a few tips for finding what colour of gold works best with your skin tone.

Gold Colours for Different Undertones

The secret to choosing the right colour gold is determining your skin tone. Once you figure that out, you can shop your favourite styles with confidence, knowing you'll always look great.

Finding Your Undertone

Undertones are the colours that can be seen beneath the skin. To identify your undertone, take a look at your veins. Virtually everyone will fall into one of three buckets: warm, cool, or neutral.

Warm Undertones

Greenish-hued veins signal warm undertones

Cool Undertones

Blue or purple-coloured veins point to cool undertones

Neutral Undertones

Seemingly colourless or invisible veins suggest neutral undertones

Got Your Undertone? Find Your Gold Colour!

Once you’ve discovered your skin’s undertones, choosing the colour of gold that complements it best is easy.

Warm Undertones = Warm Yellow Gold

Embrace your earthy undertones and yellow gold will look amazing on you! Yellow gold is experiencing a renaissance right now. This sunny tone is lovely on its own, but also lets warm gemstones like emerald, citrine and smoky quartz shine. Choose yellow gold jewellery styles to find the warm gold a look that speaks to you.


Cool Undertones = Cool White Gold

White gold suits cool skin tones best by flattering those pink and bluish undertones. It also pairs well with vibrant, cool-hued gemstones like amethyst, blue sapphire and garnet. From simple hoops to intricate diamond-cut chains, choose white gold jewellery styles to find a cool new look to love.
