What Color Jewelry Suits Your Skin Tone?, Nyack, New York

Everyone has either a warm or a cool undertone to their skin. Because the jewelry you wear is set against the backdrop of your skin, you want to keep that tone in mind as you shop. Once you understand how your undertone works, you can select metals and precious gemstones that will complement your tone rather than clash with it.

A Guide to Jewelry & Skin Tones

Matching Jewelry to Tone

People with cool undertones have a pink or rosy base tone to their skin. This looks best with metal that is lighter and cooler in color, such as white gold, silver, and platinum. Ideal gems to match with cool undertones include pearls, emeralds, aquamarines, blue sapphires, amethyst, rubies, and opals.

jewelryPeople with warm skin have a golden or yellowish undertone to their skin. This looks best with warmer-hued jewelry, such as yellow or rose gold, brass, and copper. Ideal gems to match include rubies, yellow diamonds, garnets, morganite, and peridot. Regular diamonds work perfectly with any skin tone, whether warm or cool.

How to Determine Your Skin Tone

Go outdoors to check your skin in natural light, since light bulbs may cast their own hue. Look at the veins in your arms or wrists. If they look blue or purple, then your skin tone is cool. If they look green, then it is warm. Cool tones are typical in people with all skin colors, including those with tan or darker skin. Warmer tones tend to be most common in those with lighter skin color.
