But what if the most gorgeous necklace in the store doesn't match your skin tone?

Determining your skin tone.

The first thing you should do is to find out what your skin tone is. Go to a well-lit place, preferably in natural light. Then check your wrists to see the color of your veins. If they appear bluish or purple, you have a cool skin tone. On the other hand, if the veins appear greenish, you have a warm skin tone. If some veins look blue and some appear green, then your skin tone is neutral.

Matching metal finishes with skin tones

Cool skin tones match well with silver, white gold, and platinum. On the other hand, warm skin tones look perfect with yellow gold, copper, and brass. So anything white and silvery is for the cools, while anything yellowish is for the warms. As for neutral skin tones, both the white and yellow metals are perfect. Rose gold jewelry is ideal for all types of skin tones.

Matching gemstones with skin tones

Matching with gemstones is much like matching with the metal finishes. Crystals that are blue, purple, and red look perfect with cool skin tones. On the other hand, stones with colors such as yellow, orange, and brown are perfect for warm skin tones. Neutral skin tones will look good in gemstones of any color.
