Another factor to consider when buying a chain is the type of metal. When making this decision, it often comes down to personal preference. Some people prefer gold-tone jewelry while others have a fondness for silver-tone accessories . If you are uncertain which metal suits you best, the first step is to determine your skin undertone. If you have a cool skin undertone, platinum or white gold are the ideal options, whereas a warm skin undertone is better suited for yellow gold or rose gold.
