JEWELRY FOR COOL SKIN TONES
How to tell what your skin tone is? In natural light, check the appearance of your veins beneath your skin. Cool skin tones have blue or purple colored veins. When looking in the mirror, people with a cool skin tone may notice red and pink with bluish undertones in their skin.
If you have determined that you have a cool skin tone, you’ll look best wearing a jewelry piece crafted in platinum and white gold. Cool skin tones look great with jewelry designs that feature pearls, blue sapphire, amethyst, aquamarine, ruby, emerald, opal, tanzanite or zircon.
WARM SKIN TONES
If your veins look green or a greenish blue under natural light, you have a warm skin tone. When looking in the mirror, people with a warm skin tone may notice yellow, peachy and golden undertones in their skin.
Jewelry crafted in classic yellow gold or rich rose gold looks fantastic on those with warm skin tones. Jewelry that features alexandrite, citrine, garnet, morganite, peridot, ruby or yellow diamonds also looks flattering.
OLIVE SKIN TONES
If you can't tell whether or not your veins are green or blue, you probably have a neutral skin tone. People with an olive complexion usually fall into this category. The best jewelry choices for olive skin tones include muted golds like pewter/antique golds, muted silver, copper and bronze pieces.
