Your engagement ring is one of the most precious pieces of jewellery you’ll own and wear. It’s also a piece of jewellery that will not leave your finger too often, therefore you need to make sure you choose the right engagement ring for your personality, but also your skin tone. Matching your jewellery to your skin tone will ensure that you will find pieces that look great on you.
Although types and colours of metal go in and out of fashion, for a lasting piece, you’ll appreciate having something that brings out the best in your skin – whatever the current trends are.
To find out which color of metal suits your skin, determine if you have a cool, warm, or neutral skin tone. Remember that skin tone doesn’t necessarily have to do with skin color. You can have dark skin with a cool tone or pale skin with a warm tone.
Did you know you can use your veins to determine what colour skin tone you have. Use the veins of your inner wrist in natural light. If your veins are mostly bluish, then you likely have cool-toned skin; if they are greenish, you skin is probably warm-toned; if they’re somewhere in-between the two, then you may have neutral-toned skin.
Cool Skin Tone
If you have a lighter complexion or cool skin tone, it will be best complemented by silver, white gold, platinum and titanium.
Warm Skin Tone
A darker, warmer skin tone works best with yellow gold, copper, brass, and rose gold.
Neutral Skin Tone
If you are one of the lucky ones with a neutral skin tone, then you’ll be flattered by various shades of metal.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is to pick a color of metal that you love! After all, you’re the one who will be wearing it.
