Women are so lucky to be able to exchange their favourite pieces with each other. I often find it frustrating when I see a beautiful piece on my best friend then to try it on and get a feeling that it doesn’t quite look right. Here are some tips on how to choose jewelry that will suit your skin tone and face shape:

Identifying your skin tone is easy. If you’re looking on the inside of your wrist just identify if you veins are a blueish or greenish colour. If your veins are blue you may notice that you have pinkish or rosy-red undertones when looking in the mirror, meaning that your skin tone is Cool. Warm skin is identified by green veins while having a yellow or golden skin tone.
Cool skin tones favour silver, platinum or white gold.
Warm skin tones favour metals such as brass, copper, yellow and rose gold.
Cool skin pairs better with white pearls and diamonds. If your looking into gemstones try to chose tones as pinks, purples, blues and reds.
Warm skin pairs better with coral and golden toned pearls. Gemstones should focus on more earthy tones such as browns, oranges, greens, yellows, peaches and corals.
Facial Shapes:
Heart/Triangular/Diamond shaped faces should keep with long dangly earring to help elongate the face. Shorter necklaces will help soften the sharp angle of the chin.
Round/Square/Triangular shaped faces should try long, accentuated shaped earrings such as tear drops and rectangular. Try to keep you necklace length to around 28″ to 32″ so it is well below the neckline.
Rectangular shaped faces should choose stud and round earrings to contrast a longer shaped face. Having short choker-like necklaces will help balance a long neck.
Oval shaped faces should keep with dangly earring at a medium length. Long or short necklaces can suit oval shaped faces.
