Understanding Skin Undertones

Before diving into metal choices, it’s essential to understand your skin’s undertone. Undertones can be categorised into three –  warm, cool, or neutral. Those with warm undertones have hints of yellow, while cool undertones lean towards pink or blue. Neutral undertones strike a balance between warm and cool.To find out your undertone, take a look at the colour of your veins.

People with warm undertones will have green veins, while cooler undertones will have blue veins. If you have bluish-green veins, a mixture of both, you are most likely a neutral undertone.

Matching Metals with Warm Undertones

Radiant in Gold

If you have warm undertones, gold will be your best friend. Try opting for yellow or rose gold-based jewellery to complement your skin’s natural warmth. These metals will enhance your complexion and add a touch of radiance to your look.

Copper-toned metals, such as bronze or brass, also harmonise beautifully with warm undertones. Their earthy hues create a stunning contrast, adding depth and richness to your ensemble.

For a subtle yet sophisticated look, consider champagne gold. This soft, muted shade blends seamlessly with warm undertones, exuding elegance and charm.
