Jewellery has always been one of the greatest gifts to give or receive. They can suit every occasion, from birthdays to anniversaries, you can be sure the receiver will enjoy what you have given them. Ladies love to receive jewellery, from rings to necklaces, jewellery has always been perceived as a very personal gift; usually to show some affection towards the other person. To buy jewellery is one thing, but how do you select the right gemstone colour?
The first thing to look at is the skin tone. There are two types of skin tones, warm and cool. To tell if someone has warm skin, their veins tend to appear green in colour. A person with a cool skin tone will have veins that appear blue.
Warm skin tone:
If the skin tone is warm, then you should look into oranges, yellows and greens. For oranges, you will want to look at fire opals or orange sapphires. For yellows, you will want to look at citrines and golden pearls. For the greens, look at peridots and emeralds.
Cool skin tone:
If on the other hand the skin tone is cool, then you should look at bright red, blue and purple gemstone jewellery. For red, look into getting ruby or garnet. For blue, look into tanzanite or topaz. For purple, look into amethyst and tanzanite.
Another thing to look at is the eye colour. Picking a gemstone which matches the eyes can really bring them out; although contrasting colours can be just as good.
– Green eyes have a large range of gemstones that suit. You can choose from jade, emerald, peridot and zircon. Or if you want something exciting, go for a contrasting turquoise gemstone.
– Brown eyes suit red stones. Red stones come in a wide range of shades and tones. Red Opal gemstones include spinel, tourmaline, ruby and garnet. Or if you want to go contrasting try blue gemstones.
– Blue eyes, as you can guess, suit blue stones. But one thing you should remember is try to match the tone of the eye colour with the gemstone. For a nice contrast, go for pink gemstones such as spinel.
– Hazel eyes contrast amazingly with green gemstones. With so many tones to choose from you can expect to find one that really suits.
Although the physical appearance of the jewellery is important, some health practitioners believe the colour of the stones are associated with different health benefiting properties. Some also believe a certain colour will grant them good luck and fortune. Even the month of birth can be linked to a stone colour.
