What is the difference between pure white and warm white?

Pure white and warm white are basically two different shades of white light. Warm white is similar in color and appearance to incandescent clear or white while pure white is a whiter white that is closer in color to a cool white fluorescent lamp. For those who are familiar with color temperature, our warm white is approximately 3800lm while the pure white is approximately 5500lm. For those who are not familiar with color temperature, color temperature is a scale that is used to determine color temperature. Higher color temperatures are closer to the blue end of the spectrum while lower color temperatures are closer to the red end of the color spectrum.

Our warm white Christmas lights are softer, warmer, and are good for those looking for a traditional look. Pure white is more vibrant, striking, and vivid and is great for outdoor displays or as an accent to warm colors.
