Which Gemstone Best Suits Your Skin Tone
Whether you wear them mounted in earrings, bracelets, necklaces, or rings, gemstones can be the spark that turns an outfit from meh to simply amazing! If you choose them correctly, that is. The color, texture, and overall size and design of a piece of jewelry must be in tune with the colors and textures you’re wearing. But things go even deeper than this, which is why today we’re going to discuss finding the right gemstone for your skin tone.
Gemstones for Cool Skin Tones
If you have a cool skin tone, there should be some pink or red undertones and your veins (where visible) will have a blue hue in natural light. This is true, regardless of how much tan you’ve got during the summer months.
In this case, your best option is a brightly colored gemstone like red, green, or blue. This means that you should focus on emeralds, amethysts, rubies, sapphires, topaz, and others in the same category.
For instance, a redhead with a cool skin tone and piercing blue eyes would look amazing in blue topaz jewelry. In this case, you should consider checking out this gorgeous collection of London blue topaz rings from Diamondere – they only feature the best quality and darkest blue topaz gemstones, so they will highlight your eyes and overall skin tone.
In addition, the best metals for people with cool skin tones are white or silver-toned like platinum, titanium, silver, white gold, or stainless steel. Yellow metals or gemstones should be avoided as they’ll make you look pale and sickly.
Gemstones for Warm Skin Tones
In this case, the skin will have golden undertones and the veins will get a greenish hue in natural light. This means you’ll look fantastic in earthy and sunny colors like brown, tan, orange, yellow, turquoise, and more on the same note.
In terms of the best gemstones to wear, your options are orange sapphire, fire opal, golden pearls, turquoise, or aquamarine. The same goes for the metals used to set these gemstones – they should have brown or golden hues. Therefore, the best options are yellow gold, copper, brass, or pewter.
In short, if you have warm skin tones, you should choose warm colors, that make your skin glow.
Hair Color Also Matters
Your hair color also influences the way your skin and overall appearance are perceived by others. Therefore, whether you kept your natural hair color or not, you must take it into consideration when choosing the gemstones that fit your fashion style.
As a side note, whenever you decide to change your natural hair color, it’s important to make the choice based on your skin tone. In this situation, the same color rules apply, although some shades work well with both skin tones.
For instance, black hair fits both skin tones and works well with bold and dark colors. Black hair and warm skin tones look amazing in orange-red, green, or brown gemstones set in yellow or brown metals. Brunettes with cold skin tones should consider dark blues, dark reds, pink, black and white when choosing gemstones. Also, in this case, the best choice for metal is silver or something with a silver tone.
On the other hand, people with light hair colors such as gray, white, or ashy blonde should consider darker colors such as burgundy, navy blue, or sapphires (on the darker shade). Golden blondes usually have cold skin tones, but they can get away with earthier shades due to the extra warmth provided by the hair color.
Lastly, some redheads are among the lucky few who can choose about any color. Still, this doesn’t mean that every redhead can go with whatever color they like – test things out before you choose a gemstone that will be with you for a long time.
