Have you ever wondered how to find the necklace, ring, bracelet, etc. that compliments your skin perfectly? Matching your jewelry to your skin tone is a process that can seem a bit intimidating, but with this guide, we will help you learn all about what colors will flatter you in every way.
Step 1: Cool, Warm, or Neutral?
One of the quickest ways to determine your skin tone is to look to see if you have blue or green veins. If they appear more blue, you likely have a cool skin tone, whereas green veins indicate a warm one.
Another way to test the difference is by examining your undertones. Warm undertones tend to be peachy or golden, while pink or blue undertones often translate to a cool skin tone.
A final test is to decide whether you look better in white or off-white, as warm tones are complimented by stark whites and off-whites compliment cool tones best.
If you are unable to come to a conclusion with any of these experiments, then there's a chance you have a neutral skin tone!
Step 2: Find Your Colors
The first thing to note is that golds tend to look best on warmer skin tones, while silvers look beautiful on people with cool skin tones. But discovering your ideal jewelry colors can go much further than just this!
For example, those that have cool tones will look best wearing red, purple, and blue gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, and amethysts. Therefore, yellow, orange, and green stones, such yellow sapphires, imperial topaz, and emeralds will especially pop when worn by warm toned individuals. And those with dark skin will find that most bright colors will accompany their tones beautifully.
People with neutral skin tones will likely be able to wear any color jewelry, so for them it will ultimately come down to personal preference. If, however, you are looking for a more universal piece of jewelry, diamonds and pearls are a perfect, timeless match for any skin tone.
Step 3: Add Some Personality!
In addition to all the previously mentioned tips, the most important part to finding the perfect jewelry for yourself is to find pieces that represent your personality!
If you love dainty, delicate pieces, look for jewelry that has those feminine qualities that you desire. But if you tend to prefer bold jewelry that makes a statement, there is a wide variety of pieces that will cater to your wants and needs.
Overall, you feeling confident and beautiful in your jewels is the most important thing, and here at Dacels, we can't wait to work side-by-side to find the perfect fit for you!
