Jewellery it’s the first thing people notice about your outfit. I always suggest that you should choose a piece based on what you love, but it’s also important to consider how the colours compliment your skin tone. There is no hard and fast rule to determine what skin tone you have, but there are some clues to help you figure it out.
Your skin tone will generally fall into one of three categories:
warm, neutral, cool. The best way to determine your own personal skin tone is to look at the colour of the veins located on the inside of your arm.
If you can wear both colours without feeling like you look washed out, you may have a neutral undertone.
How To Find Your Own Skin Undertone
Grab a pure piece of clothing or even just a piece of white paper. In bright, natural light, hold the item up to your face. If your skin looks pink or rosy by comparison, you're cool-toned. If your face looks more yellow, your undertone is warm.
Warm Skin Tones
If the veins on your inner wrist are greenish, you have a warm skin tone. Jewellery set in yellow gold with red or golden gems looks great on you.
If you’ve always had an affinity for yellow gold, then it’s likely you have warm undertones. The earthy undertones in your skin mean that yellow gold simply glows on you, as it is the warmest of the metals itself.
Cool Skin Tones
If the veins on the inside of your wrist look blue, your skin tone is cool. Silver and white gold, with pastel blue, violet and pink gems flatter you.
This means embracing the pale with light coloured metals such as white gold, platinum and silver. These metals are particularly striking when paired with a pop of colour, often in the form of a gemstone. Brighter is better; colours such as green, red and purple look fabulous set against light metals and pale skin.
If you have a neutral skin tone, you'll look good in both white metals and yellow metals. Bright blues, emeralds, and deep purples will look fabulous on cool skin undertones. Frosty shades of pink, ice blue and lavender also will look amazing.
Both white gold and yellow metals will pop against your skin, meaning the sky’s the limit when it comes to choosing jewellery that complements your undertones. With neutral undertones, you can be bold with your jewellery choices.
All skin tones – Whatever your skin tone, you cannot go wrong with diamonds, pearls, quartz and other white gems. Do you! What really matters is that you feel comfortable in whatever earrings, necklace, bracelet, or ring you choose regardless of the colour of your veins.
