How to Choose Contemporary Silver Jewellery That Flatters
19th November 2018
Are you looking for a new piece of contemporary silver jewellery? This article will help ensure that you select a jewellery style that is perfectly suited to you.
Have you ever fallen in love with a piece of contemporary silver jewellery – or indeed any other type of jewellery – which doesn’t look as good as you thought it would once you put it on? Just as different colours and styles are more suited to different people when it comes to clothing, jewellery is the same. The right pieces can accentuate your outfit and make you look amazing, while the wrong ones can ruin all the hard work you’ve put into your look.
Consider Your Skin Tone
When buying jewellery, your skin tone should definitely be taken into consideration. One of the easiest ways to discover your skin tone is to look at the veins in your wrist. Bluish veins usually mean a cool skin tone, whilst a greener shade is often an indication of a warmer skin tone. Cool tones tend to suit contemporary silver jewellery well, and also go well with metals such as gold and platinum. Warmer skin tones tend to pair better with pewter, gold, copper and brass.
Your Face Shape
When purchasing a new piece of contemporary silver jewellery such as earrings or a necklace, considering your face shape will help ensure that you pick a style which will suit you best. Those with a heart-shaped face suit drop earrings well as they lengthen the face, and choker-style necklaces can soften a sharp jawline. If your facial shape is round, triangular or square, teardrop earrings or necklaces which drop beneath the neckline are very flattering choices. Oval faces tend to best suit angular-shaped earrings, and most necklaces will flatter this facial shape.
Chunky or Dainty?
When you’re choosing jewellery items such as rings or bracelets, you have the choice of going for the daintier styles, or chunkier, statement pieces. When picking the style that you want, consider the shape and size of your fingers and wrists – if you’re quite dainty yourself with smaller wrists and fingers, daintier, slimline styles will suit you best. On the other hand, those with thicker, wider wrists and fingers often look amazing in chunkier, statement pieces.
Making sure your jewellery is the best style for you will add even more to any outfit!
