Finding the right jewellery, for your skin tone and outfit taste, can be a tricky deal. There’s a lot of pieces out there, made up of various stones and links, and hanging off lengthy or short chains – how are you meant to navigate the sales counters? A lot of bracelets and necklaces look glam enough, but how do you know you’ll suit their effects?
Well, with the couple tips we’ve compiled below, you might just find it easier to make a decision next time you hit the shops. You can find all kinds of hidden gems in the stores, perfect for complimenting your beauty, and it’s important you know how to find them!
Pick a Metal Color First
The first thing to do, to outfit your jewellery box a little better, is to focus on a color of jewellery metal. Most pieces are made in gold or silver, but there’s some rose gold or white gold tints out there; the links fitting your necklace together, or the band your charms are hanging off of, are big parts of the accessory. So, if you focus on just the one color for the time being, it’s going to be a lot easier (and cheaper) to find jewellery that highlights your skin properly.
A lot of companies out there tend to deal in only one color – for example, if you like the look of gold, and you’ve perfected your tan to suit its glow, check out websites like hrlawrence.com. We mention this because some skin colors are a little light to show off some metal effects, and you don’t want to waste your money on an investment that does little for your wardrobe!
Decide on the ‘Warmth’ of Your Skin Tone
Speaking of complimenting your skin tone, now’s the time to decide where your skin fits on the scale. So, after you’ve picked out a color, it’s time to determine how it’ll work with your skin – to do that, you’re going to need to work out how ‘warm’ your skin tone really is.
Cool skin, like pale whites and fair complexions (usually of people with red or black to grey-ish hair) are at the low end of the scale, of course. These tones work best with jewellery of similarly light pigments, like silver, and like to be highlighted by red and blue stones.
On the other hand, warm skin is darker skin (usually of people with brown, dark black, and even blonde hair). Darker skin tones have a great way of offsetting the glitz of most jewellery pieces, but always look best with gold and rose metals. Add in some yellow and orange stones and you’ll have a great look on your hands!
Of course, if you’re someone who’s into diamonds, it doesn’t really matter what tone your skin is – they’re naturally reflective, and always catch the eye!
If you’re off jewellery shopping in the near future, keep these ideas in mind. They’ll definitely help you to find better pieces for you.
