Jewellery to suit

Posted on 25 August 2016

When we try on our clothes, what do we look for? Well, we see if it fits, if we like it, if it flatters, so why shouldn't we do this for our jewellery? After all, different gemstones suit different skin tones and different pieces flatter some better than others.

So, with that in mind, we have put together a fool-proof plan of how to choose your stones according to your skin tone. 

Before we start, one thing to note is that within each skin tone category, tones can differ between warm and dark thanks to undertones. Cool skin tones have more of a pink or blue effect whereas warm skin tones veer towards yellow, peach and golden undertones.

Warm up a cool skin tone with a smokey dark stone, such as these Citrine and Smokey Quartz Earrings. Whereas those with a warm tone can pull of this Aqua Calci and Green Onyx necklace beautifully.

Light skin tones need to veer away from blues and greens and need pieces like these Green Onyx Drop Earrings to give some subtle warmth. Warmer skin tones can pull off this Amethyst and Gold Ring beautifully.

Those with a cooler medium skin tone can pull of our Ruby Bracelet perfectly, but those with warmer tones will look stunning in our Labradorite and Green Onyx Necklace.

Set off the cooler tones on dark skin with our Labradorite Earrings, where warmer dark skin tones will look sensational with our Blue Topaz Bracelet
