Ask any fashion designer and they will gladly confirm that a person’s skin color is a vital component to creating the perfect look, so when you are looking at jewellery that contains precious stones, it is important to choose shades that go well with your skin tone. Here are a few pointers to help you make the right choices when looking to accessorize.
- Cool Undertones – There are many gemstones that are made for a cool-toned skin, with the deep purple of amethyst, which is a calming stone, with also shades of violet that match well with lighter skin. Light green emeralds are also a great choice for lighter tones of skin, and by sourcing an established wholesale jeweller, you can purchase loose stones and have them crafted into a custom-made jewellery item that will truly be a one-off item to treasure forever.
- Warm Skin Tones – If your skin has an ivory glow, or is an attractive light brown color, the best shades for precious stones are yellow topaz or perhaps a blood-red garnet, which goes very well with warm-toned skin. Other precious stones that might work are alexandrite, which might look lime green one moment and then a light red the next. This is due to the fact that it depends on the angle you are viewing from, and with stunning loose pink diamonds at The Diamond Jewellery Studio, you can create the perfect jewellery item that contrasts well with your natural skin shade.
- Darker Skin Tones – Precious stones that contrast well with darker skin include alexandrite, citrine, garnet, and morganite, which all look good against a darker backdrop, and, of course, we can’t forget yellow diamonds, which are always a favorite for women with a darker complexion.
- Neutral Gem Colours – These are ideal for every skin tone, and include colorless diamonds, which looks fabulous on anyone. The opal is another precious stone that can confidently be worn, as the deep blues or reds go with every skin shade and would make for the perfect earrings if you are planning an evening social event. Pearls are another winner for every girl, with many shades of a light cream that work for light or dark skin, and these amazing natural elements are really in vogue this year. Sapphires are another winner, with light blue and many other shades available, and by acquiring loose stones, you can have the jewellery item designed and handcrafted by a specialist for a really unique item.
Trial and error is always a good way to decide on precious stone colors that work for your skin tone, and with a full-length mirror, you can experiment with your jewellery collection. If you are lacking in one item, why not have it created by a custom jeweller?
