As for the gold/silver thing, a friend gave me a gift voucher for a jewellers, but when I went in it was all silver. Even the two sales assistants agreed that the silver looked dreadful and I had to give the voucher to another friend.
I think the easiest way to DIY is to get a kettlewell catalogue, go to a department store when it's quiet, and pick some of the "only suits one season" colours by comparing catalogue to clothing options. See which one suits you best.
I'd guess summer tbh, esp if you like blue. I don't think gold/silver is conclusive and everything else fits. Summer is a bit weird (I say this as one) as a season, hard to diagnose and then bloody confusing to shop for!
Well, I've read up on summers and bizarely almost all of my clothes are in 'summer colours', my house is decorated in them and my car is a Summer colour too (I went to great lengths to get a car in this colour!)
Raspberry is about as 'Wow' a colour as I have ever worn, it really brings my face to life.
TBH, I always took the whole colours thing with a pinch of salt. Because of my hair/eye colour I sort of assumed that I would be an Autumn, and I hate those colours. Seems I should be eating some humble pie
