The ideal metal colours for your skin tone
In the Jessica Flinn Fine Jewellery showroom, we understand the importance of choosing the right metal and colours to complement your natural skin tone and make both your skin and jewellery look fabulous. With so many options available, it can be confusing to determine the best combination for you. That's why I, as a jewellery stylist and colour expert, have put together this guide to help you choose the perfect metal and colours for your skin tone.
If you have warm skin tones, I suggest going for gold or rose gold metal and embracing the colours from the 'Autumn' colour palette, such as greens, mustards, and warm tones like orange. The dream colour combination with gold is green, so pairing your warm skin tone with green gemstones will create a stunning and harmonious look. These warm metal tones and colours will bring out the golden undertones in your complexion and create a dazzling glow.
For those with cool skin tones, white gold and platinum are the ideal metal choices and the 'Winter' colour palette of pinks and blues will complement your skin tone perfectly. The dream colour combination with white metals is teal/blue, so consider pairing your cool skin tone with these gems for a mesmerising look.
Salt and pepper diamonds, white/colourless diamonds and lab created diamonds look amazing in any shade of metal, so these options can also be great for those with cool skin tones. These cool metals and colours will balance out the pink or blue undertones in your skin and add a touch of sophistication to your look.
If you have a neutral skin tone you're in luck! Both warm and cool metal tones and colours will look fantastic on you, so you have the freedom to choose the combination that you love the most.
In conclusion, the key to finding the ideal metal and colours for your skin tone is to choose the combination that flatters you and make you feel confident and beautiful. By considering the metal and colour combinations mentioned above, as well as your skin tone, you'll be able to create a stunning and unique look that complements you perfectly.
