What Color Gemstone Beads For Your Skin Tone?

The jewelry you wear is indicative of your preferences and nature as a person. Different events would need different types of jewelry, statement jewelry for office parties, decent and low-key oval gemstone jewelry for date nights, chunky and extravagant jewelry for festivities and club getaways. But what is common among all these is that the jewelry must go with your specific and prominent skin tone. And everyone wanted their jewelry to not only complement their outfit but also to compliment their skin tone and overall personality.

Different Tones

The contrast between your skin tone and jewelry will make a lot of difference on your overall look and elegance. But to choose the best jewelry according to your skin tone, you need to first know better about the undertones of your skin. There are three major skin undertones: warm, cold and neutral.

Warm Tone

This is seen mostly in people with dusky and earthy skin colors. Fair people may also have a warm undertone so the way to recognize it is focusing on the color of your veins. If your veins are green in color, you have a warm undertone. People with warm skin undertone look better with colors like red, yellow, brown, orange, green, mustard, etc. and their similar shades. You should prefer gold and rose gold metals over silver and platinum.

Cold Tone

Cold undertone is mostly found in fair to medium toned skin colors. How to know if you have a cold undertone? If your veins have a blue color, you have a cold undertone. Colors like blue, purple, pink, grey, white, turquoise, etc. flatter your skin the most if you have a cold undertone. You should consider 2mm oval gemstone beads in these colors. Also, silver and platinum metals will suit you more.

Neutral Tone

If you have a neutral undertone, you are at the most favorable place. This is because all the colors suiting warm and cold undertones look great on your neutral undertone skin. If your veins around your wrist or any other sheer area of skin are both green and blue colored, you have a neutral undertone. You can wear either red or pink, grey or brown, silver or gold, almost every color will suit you perfectly.
