Best Jewelry Metal Color for Your Skin Tone

Choosing the right metal color for jewelry and accessories can enhance your overall look by complementing your skin tone. Yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and platinum have different undertones that can either flatter or clash with your skin tone. In this article, we will explore what metal color to wear with specific skin color.

Fair Skin Tone

If you have fair skin, silver and platinum are great options as they have cool undertones that complement your skin. They can make your skin appear brighter and more radiant. 

If you prefer gold, opt for white gold, which has a cooler undertone than yellow gold. On the opposite end, if you prefer yellow gold, the warm hue makes jewelry on fair skin stand out. 

Medium Skin Tone

If you have a medium skin tone, you are lucky as you can wear almost any metal color. White gold and platinum make skin look fairer in complexion, while warmer metals like yellow gold brings out the warmth on the skin.

Rose gold is also a great option as it has a warm undertone that complements your skin. 

Olive Skin Tone

Olive skin tones have green and yellow undertones, which look stunning with warm metals. Yellow gold brings out the warmth in your skin and creates a beautiful contrast. Rose gold is also a great option as it complements the warm undertones in your skin. 

Dark Skin Tone

If you have a dark skin tone, gold is your best friend. Yellow gold, in particular, complements your skin and creates a stunning contrast. Rose gold can also look great, especially if you have warm undertones. Platinum and other cool metals such as white gold peeks through darker skin tones because of their cooler color. 


Choosing the right metal color can make a significant difference in how your jewelry looks on you. When selecting metals, consider your skin tone and undertones – and also if you want the jewelry to stand out or complement your skin instead.
