How to Pick the Right Color Jewelry for Your Skin Tone

By BluKatDesign on Etsy

There are no hard rules for what metals to wear with certain skin tones, I suggest wearing what you like best! Don’t be afraid to mix metals for a more modern, updated look also! Look at the veins on your wrist, if they are greenish, your have a warm skin tone, if blue you have a cool tone, if  you have a combination, you have a neutral skin tone.   Warmer, olive skin tones may look better with gold or brass, cooler toned people tend to look better with silver, white gold or even gunmetal.  Some of us with a more neutral skin tone can wear anything but it depends on hair color and outfit color too so don’t be afraid to experiment! Rose gold or copper can look great on anyone!

BluKatDesign is known for vibrant colorful jewelry but you can find gold, brass, silver, gunmetal and even copper jewelry that will go with anything in your wardrobe. You can use navy as in my line of denim jewelry as a neutral or even blue and green can work as a neutral color also.

  1. Such a great selection! I don’t mind mixed metals, it’s the overall look of the piece that is noticed first. Your birds nest necklace and denim earrings are my fave of this group!

  2. This is so interesting. I used to wear gold sometimes but now I only wear white gold or silver. I never thought too much about it but I just wear my wedding ring and my mother ring with my boy’s birthstones.

  3. I don’t think I have ever mixed metals but I have always wanted to. Gold tends to look gaudy on me but I love silver so it works out.

  4. Oh yes, i know, if the veins inside the wrist are greenish than you are warm undertone, you should wear gold and if the veins are bluish then you are cool undertone and should wear silver. 🙂

  5. I wore different metals until a few years ago and I realized that certain metals looked awful against my skin! This post is so helpful.
