The Best Metals for Enhancing Your Natural Glow

When it comes to jewellery, one important consideration is the metal that best complements your skin tone. While silver and gold are the most popular metals for jewellery, there are several other metals that can be used. In this blog post, we will look at the various options and provide advice on how to choose the best type of metal for different skin tones.


Gold is a classic jewellery material that comes in a variety of colours, including yellow, white, and rose gold. Yellow gold complements warm skin tones well, while white gold complements cooler skin tones. Rose gold is a popular choice for those with medium skin tones because of its pinkish hue.

Silver and White Gold

Silver is a popular jewellery metal because of its bright, shiny finish. It complements cool skin tones and can be paired with a variety of gemstones.


Platinum is a dense, white metal known for its durability and tarnish resistance. It is a popular choice for those with cool skin tones, and it is frequently used to create engagement rings and other fine jewellery.



Titanium is a lightweight, strong metal with a long lifespan. It comes in a variety of colours, including silver, black, and gold, and is suitable for those with sensitive skin. One thing to discuss with your jeweller is if it’s right for you. Titanium can be very difficult to remove (as a ring) if ever there is an accident. In this case, Tungsten alloys might be a better fit. More abraision resistant and harder than titanium, but they can be snapped off if ever needed.


Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a long-lasting, corrosion-resistant metal that is commonly used in the manufacture of watches and other types of jewellery. It is suitable for those with sensitive skin and comes in a variety of finishes such as polished, brushed, and matte.


When deciding on the best type of metal for your skin tone, consider the overall look you want to achieve. Gold or platinum may be the best choice for a classic, timeless look. Silver or titanium may be a better fit if you prefer a more modern or edgy look. Finally, the best metal for you will be determined by your personal taste and style.


When it comes to jewellery, there are several different types of metal to choose from. When deciding which metal will work best for you, consider the colour of your skin, the overall look you want to achieve, and your personal style. Whether you choose a classic gold or a more modern titanium, the right metal can boost your confidence and style. 


Finally, before having something created, check with your custom jeweller to ensure you are not allergic to specific metal types. At Bruce Trick Jewellery, we like to make certain that our clients are not allergic to the materials used to create their pieces.
