When choosing a jewel (pendants, earrings, rings) many factors must be taken into account:
- How it matches your hair
- How it matches your neckline
- How it matches your face shape and length of your neck
- How it matches clothes
- How it matches the shape of your hands and fingers
And then of course there are your own tastes when it comes to costume jewelery and jewelry.
But one factor that you should never forget is the skin . And less now, in summer, which is when you look more skin, and have more brown.
So let’s go with some tips to help you light up summer nights!
Warm or cold skin?
Normally we say that one has a “white” or “brown” skin, although of course there are a thousand degrees between one and the other, and sometimes it is not easy to differentiate. Not to mention that in summer, you always darken your skin with a tan.
This is why it can be helpful to think in terms of cold or warm skin. Cold skin (the whitest) are those in which the veins are clearly bluish in color.
The darker the skin, the greener the veins appear, until they are no longer visible. These are the warm skins.
And it is important to see what your skin is like, or how you have it when choosing your accessories. Because not all metals or stones stand out the same.
Metals and gems for cold skin
Cold skin and paler, cry out for silver shine. Silver and white gold are the first choice, since their reflections “match” the skin and give an almost ethereal image.
Platinum would be another option, although its use in jewelry is extremely limited.
Yellow gold, on the other hand, is quite dull with this type of leather, since its brilliance pales.
The same thing happens with stones: reflections of white on white are the key. The white pearls feel great. And diamonds or zircons shine like stars on fair skin.
If you want to add touches of color , what stands out best with cold skin are gems with a color scale that goes from red to blue .
- Pink topaz
Metals and gems for warm skin
The warmer and tanned skin , on the other hand, prefer yellow gold. They admit silver and white gold, of course: in reality, on brown skin the metal always shines and shines more.
But it is that it is in the darkest skins where gold displays all its power .
Other interesting metals, especially in summer, are copper and brass , with which you can create incredible and attractive jewelery combinations.
As for gems, it is best to go to the rest of the color spectrum. Browns, greens and yellows in varying degrees, they fit over warm skin as if they were part of it.
- Golden Beryl
Although, as we always say, the style is always done by oneself, these recommendations will help you decide correctly: the jewels look more, and your skin, too. And isn’t that what we’re looking for?
