How to Select the Perfect Jewelry for your Skin Tone

How to select the Perfect Jewelry for your Skin Tone

Have you ever wondered how to find the jewelry that compliment your skin perfectly? Matching your jewelry to your skin tone is a process that can seem a bit intimidating.

Here are some useful tips about the colors which flatter you in every way.


Step 1: Find out your skin undertone

Take a look, in good lighting, at the veins in your wrist. There are three skin tones: warm, cool, and neutral. You can determine which skin tone you have by taking note of the color of your veins.

If your veins appear to be green or yellow, you have a warm undertone. Veins that are blue or purple mean that you have a cool undertone. A mixture of both is a neutral undertone.

Step 2: Find Your Colors

The first thing to note is that gold tend to look best on warmer skin tones, while silver or platinum looks beautiful on people with cool skin tones. But discovering your ideal jewelry colors can go much further than just this:

- If you have a Warm Skin Tone

Yellow metals like gold complement warm skin the best. The warmer your undertone is, the warmer the yellow of your gold should be. If your undertone is a delicate warm, try a softer yellow or warm rose gold. 

- If you have a Cool Skin Tone

If you have a decidedly cool color palette, cool metals, such as silver, white gold and platinum will likely look best on you. You can also try a cool-tone rose gold.

- If you have a Neutral Skin Tone

With a neutral skin tone, you can mix and match and look fantastic with any choice of gemstone or metal. If you are somewhere in the middle having both cool and warm colors, both yellow and white gold flatter you, but one will likely look better than the other.

- If you like Rose Gold

Rose gold works for a wide variety of skin tones. Just make sure the color of the rose gold aligns with your natural undertone. Rose gold can vary from warm tones to neutral to cool tones. Rose gold is also a more delicate color than vibrant yellow gold or stark white gold and silver. Its delicate color palette creates a more natural glow on the skin versus a decidedly warm or cool color gold. So, it’s ideal for both casual and business look.

Step 3: Select the right Gemstones

Warm skin tones look great with jade, emerald, and peridot. Also, consider yellow sapphire, zircon, and citrines; and sunstone, orange sapphire, and fire opals.

The gemstones that blend best for cool types are red, purple, and blue gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, and amethysts. And those with dark skin will find that most bright colors will accompany their tones beautifully.

Diamonds and pearls are a perfect, timeless match for any skin tone. When it comes to pearls, white is not the only option. Natural pearls come in three shades: white, silver, and rose-tinted. Cool skin tones pair best with rose-tinted pearls; silver and warm skin tone are natural pairs. White pearls complement any skin tone.
