Choosing the Best Jewelry for your Skin Tone

March 18th, 2013 Munchels Fine Jewelry


Women across the world would likely agree that there are just some types of jewelry that do not work well for them. You may be partial to the sterling silvers, but when you find a yellow gold piece that you just fall in love with, you’ll likely try to convince yourself that it just needs to grow on you. While we might wish for that to be true, it turns out that there’s a reason why that probably won’t ever happen.


It turns out that the metals that look best on you have a lot to do with the color of your skin. Luckily, WikiHow provides us with a simple way of determining which side of the spectrum we fall on.

The first step is to take a look at your wrists; this is usually the spot on the body where your veins are most visible. It may sound a little odd, but studying the color of your veins  will help to establish whether you have a warm skin tone or cool skin tone, which is a vital part of this whole process.


If you find that your veins are more of a greenish color, you can count yourself as a member of the warm-toned family.  This is most common in those with yellow or golden-apricot undertones and a natural hair color that is close to either red or strawberry blonde. Those with rosy-red undertones however, are the ones with bluish colored veins and a cool skin tone. So where do you go from here?


     Warm Skin Tone – Your go-to metals are going to include gold, pewter, brass and copper. The article goes on to suggest that those with this skin tone should focus on earth tones, such as brown, orange, green, yellow, peach, coral and turquoise.


     Cool Skin Tone – People with this particular skin tone are going to want to stick to pieces that include whit pearls and diamonds, as their skin tone is more favorable towards silver, platinum and white gold. Jewel tones, like pink, purple, blue, red and magenta are going to be your best friends!


With these guidelines, you should find your next jewelry shopping experience to be much easier, allowing you to purchase the piece that will compliment you in the best way possible. If you have any additional questions, contact Munchel’s Fine Jewelry Inc. today!
