Buying jewellery isn’t as easy at it may seem. That’s because no piece of gold, silver, or any metal colour, looks the same on every person. In fact, it all comes down to the tone of your skin. Similar to makeup and hair colours, the right piece of jewellery goes a long way to accentuating your beauty and standing out to someone special.
So, how do you choose the right jewellery for your skin tone? Read on to find out.
What Tone Is Your Skin?
Your skin’s undertone is the colour just beneath the surface of the skin. It tends to fall into two categories, cool tones and warm tones. While you can have the same skin colour as other people, surprisingly you might not have the same skin tone.
One of the best ways to figure out what your natural skin tone is, is to take a careful look at the veins on the inside of your arms.
Warm Skin Tone
If you have a warmer skin tone, your veins are likely to be a greenish shade with slight yellow undertones. Darker skin people tend to fall under the warm skin tone category which means you should be choosing bold gold, rose gold and beautiful bronze jewellery. As for stones, Garnet, peridot, ruby, alexandrite and citrine will all look sensational against your skin tone.
Cool Skin Tone
Many people tend to have a cool skin tone, which means your veins will be bluish, red or pink. When it comes to choosing jewellery to match a cool skin tone, you’ll look amazing in white golds, platinum and silvers. Delicate pieces alongside blue sapphires and pearls as well as delicate pastel coloured stones will look gorgeous against your skin.

Honey, Olive and Tanned Tones
This is another category of skin tone to think about. Often to the annoyance of fair-haired and pale skinned people, many of us with slightly tanned, honey or olive glowing skin can get away with wearing just about anything. Gemstones, jewel, metals – the world of jewellery is your oyster. This is the skin tone that can wear literally all kinds of metals, from gorgeous rose gold to silver, white gold and even yellow gold.
Diamonds Are Everyone’s Best Friend
So, what about one standard stone that suits every type of skin tone? It’s diamonds! Diamonds work beautifully with both cool and warm toned skins and anywhere on the body, be it earrings, a bracelet or a stunning necklace.
As we well know, the point of wearing jewellery on our skin is to feel beautiful, unique and special. When it comes to picking the perfect piece of jewellery, it should mean something to you or the lucky recipient. Whether it’s a ring, a pendant or a birthstone, a special piece will always radiate style, sass and class on any skin tone!
