Skin tone plays a vital role in what colors look best on different people, and jewelry is no exception. Your skin tone is very important in determining how jewelry will look on you, because jewelry rests directly against the skin. Understanding your skin tone can help you better understand the metal and gemstone colors that will look best on you. Noe’s Jewelry in Raymore, Missouri, is here to help you find the jewelry that will look best with your skin tone.

What is Your Skin Tone?

Skin tone can be determined by looking at the veins in your wrist under natural light. If your veins look blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone. If your veins are a greenish color, you have a warm skin tone.

Another way you can determine if you have warm or cool skin tone is how it reacts to the sun. Those with a warm skin tone will notice their skin deepen in color without burning when out in the sun. People with cool skin tones often burn in the sun, but don’t tan much, if at all.

A third skin tone is the neutral tone. If you can’t determine the color of your veins or you burn in the sun, but tan afterwards, you probably have a neutral skin tone.

What Looks Good on a Cool Skin Tone?

When it comes to the metals that work best on cool skin tones, think silvers. White gold, silver, and platinum are the most flattering metal colors for a person with a cool skin tone.

Gemstones that tend to look best on cool skin tones include blue sapphires, amethysts, aquamarines, rubies, emeralds, opals, tanzanite, and zircons.

What Looks Good on a Warm Skin Tone?

Warm skin tones tend to be complemented by gold, rose gold, and copper-toned metals, as they naturally have a warmer feel to them than silvery tones.

When looking for gemstones, people with warm skin tones may want to gravitate toward alexandrite, citrine, garnet, morganite, ruby, peridot, mandarin garnet, and fancy yellow diamonds.

What Looks Good on a Neutral Skin Tone?

Pretty much everything looks good on a person with a neutral skin tone. Luckily for people with neutral skin tones, silver and gold tones work well with their skin tone.

Noe’s Jewelry recommends selecting a gemstone and metal type that suits your skin tone and finding a piece of jewelry that contains both. If you still can’t decide what goes best with your skin tone, Noe’s Jewelry recommends going with diamonds and white or yellow gold. The classic combination looks great on everyone.
