Ultimate Colour-Guide To Find A Gemstone That Will Compliment Your Skin Tone
September 01, 2021
Have you ever wondered why even after matching your colour jewellery or by going a colour block and contrast with your outfit’s colour scheme, your jewellery did not really add any special final finishing to your overall look? Or sometimes you might want to wear a pretty piece that looks dashing on your friend, but the same jewellery looks lackluster and an absolute abomination on you? Yes, as the title of the blog suggests, the missing piece of the puzzle is indeed your skin tone. And as we launch our new Spectrum Collection, we want to share some secrets of choosing the correct gemstone colour that will flatter your skin tone.
Broadly, we have two kinds of skin tones –
Cool Skin Tone
Warm Skin Tone
Before we delve deep, let us quickly revise how to check your skin tone. It is super easy.
- Find natural light
- Hold out your arm, wrist up
- If your veins appear blue or purple and the general hue of your skin is reddish or pinkish, you have a cool skin tone
- If your veins appear green or green with a bluish tinge and the undertone of your skin is yellowish or golden, you have a warm skin tone
Cool Skin Tone
Okay, first things first. Reddish and pinkish hue doesn’t necessarily mean that your skin colour needs to be white to sport those undertones. The overall colour of your skin can very well vary from the light pink, beige or dark brown. Gemstones like Amethyst, Aquamarine, Emerald, Peridot, Tanzanite, and Turquoise will complement a cool skin tone. The metal that will augment the beauty of these coloured gemstones and will pair up well with this skin tone is obviously, white gold or silver. Adorn your wrist with this gorgeous Aqua Blue coloured Tennis Bracelet from our Spectrum Collection. You could also try the Luminous Hoop Earrings in Aqua to enhance your jaw line. The bright silver metal colour brings out the blue tone of the colour stones so much more, adding sparkle to your wrists. These bracelets are beautifully handcrafted with utmost attention to detail, which makes the product extremely eye-catching. For your earwear, we have created this fabulous pair of half hoops encrusted with aqua-colored stones. For amethyst lovers, this vibrant violet coloured stone half hoop will give you a similar feel.
Warm Skin Tone
With a golden or yellowish tint to your undertone, it goes without saying that earthy colour gemstones will look bomb on you. So shut your eyes and go for gemstones that resemble Yellow Topaz or Citrine, Alexandrite, Garnet, Sunstone, Morganite, etc. Currently a millennial favourite, Morganite is a soft pinkish-hued stone. Our Blush Pink Tennis Bracelet is an ode to this unusual colour. A modern twist on the classic plain diamond tennis bracelet, this one is unique and radiant. This beautiful soft pink bracelet gives your everyday bracelet an upgrade. You can pair this with plain diamond bracelets or stack it with other coloured bracelets from the same Spectrum Collection effortlessly for a dressy look. You could also wear it solo to keep it casual. This blush pink tennis bracelet is set in a bright silver metallic finish that helps enhance the colour of these stunning coloured stones even more. If citrine is your call, go for this exciting Irise Hoop Earrings in Champagne or the Luminous Hoop Earring in Amber that will light up any look in an instant.
For people with warm skin tones, the body colour normally oscillates between dusky rose tones to olive tones. The metal of choice for this skin tone should be yellow gold or rose gold. If you love to show off a cascade of different colours, try our Rainbow Bracelet. Set in sterling silver with a yellow gold finish, this colourful and enigmatic bracelet celebrates the colours of pride. This Rainbow Bracelet is an attention-grabbing piece and is sure to make a statement. The stiff top with a flowy chain is a rare combination to find and makes for a great addition to your bracelet collection. The beautiful and bright colour stones are surrounded by a delicate line of imitation diamonds on either side for an even more enhanced look.
