Jewelry for Skin Tone Chart

There is more to jewelry than it meets the eye. Did you know there is an entire science about matching your skin tone with your jewelry color? Take a peek at the jewelry for skin tone chart and find the perfect match for you.

We will make choosing the right jewelry for your skin tone fun and easy. Let’s unveil the unique approach to accessorizing by going through the palette of individual undertones.

Jewelry and Skin Tones

Your natural beauty is something you should appreciate the most. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t care about your style. Quite the opposite. Your natural beauty should be your guide when you are making fashion and accessorizing decisions.

Selecting jewelry according to your skin tone is a subtle way to enhance your overall look. Understanding the warmth and coolness of your skin tone can help you find the jewelry that suits you best.

How to Determine Your Skin Undertone

We know that you can’t wait to order from our irresistible handmade jewelry, but before you click that button, you need to find out whether you should be looking for jewelry for a warm skin tone, cool or neutral. 

There are two quick and easy tests you can do to figure out your undertone at home. To get the most accurate results, do each in natural light.

  • Forearm vein test
        • Green tinge veins mean a warm undertone,
        • Bluish or purplish veins mean a cool undertone.
  • Putting white cloth next to your face
      • Skin appearing yellowish indicates a warm undertone,
      • Skin looking pinkish or blueish is a sign of a cool undertone.

    Extra tip: If you get a tan easily without burning, you probably have a warm or neutral undertone.

    Don’t worry if you can’t clearly determine whether you have a warm or cool undertone. That means you can wear jewelry for both cool and warm undertones. 

    Jewelry for Skin Tone Chart

    Although our new releases are specially crafted so they can look good on anyone, science says there are some metals you should favorize. A jewelry for skin tone chart will help you figure out what color jewelry will fit your skin best.

    If you don’t know how to choose jewelry for skin tone, all you have to do is take a look at the table below.




    Rhodium plated

    Sterling silver




    White gold


    Warm undertone


    Yellow gold

    Rose gold



    Neutral skin tone

    All of the above

    Be especially careful with gold jewelry. The gold color makes a huge difference. For incense, you can wear white gold on cool skin tone, but opt for yellow or rose variants if you have a warm undertone.

    Choosing the color of gemstones

    If you fancy pieces of jewelry with gemstones, you should pick their colors wisely. Just like the metals of your jewelry, your skin tone plays a significant role in what colors will look good on you.

    For instance, for cold tones, we recommend getting gemstones with bright colors. Pearls, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Opal, and Zircon will compliment your skin tone the most.

    On the other hand, earth colors should be your choice if you have warm tones. Alexandrite, Yellow Diamonds, Morganite, and Peridot that come in peach, green, red, or yellow variants are generally gemstones that will make you shine.

    Other Considerations When Picking Jewelry

    If you are still asking yourself, should I wear silver or gold, we have some extra tips for you. Besides your undertone, the shape of your face is significantly important for picking the right jewelry type.

    Face shape

    Long necklaces like the Ukra pedant and Best Wishes pendant necklaces best compliment round faces. If you are looking for earrings, the Ula Open Loop earrings will match your face shape perfectly.

    Oval faces are typically what we like to call heaven for jewelry because they can be combined with almost every style of necklaces and earrings. But if you like to ask jewelry experts like us, we would recommend wearing hoop and chandelier earrings, such as the Ula earrings and Mystique earrings.

    If you have a hearth or diamond-shaped face, you must have at least one choker or other type of short necklace. If you like to make a bold statement and show your unique style, our Big Chain Link necklace is one of the best options for you.

    Lastly, if you have a square face, pendant necklaces, and large hoop earrings should be your choice. We crafted many models of earrings and necklaces for square faces, but some of our favorite ones are the Citrin Quartz necklace, the Good Luck Desert Flower, and the Krata earrings.

    The outfit you are wearing

    Besides knowing what color jewelry for skin tone is best and the face type, you should be guided by your outfit. The jewelry you are wearing must match your attire. Some things to have in mind are:

    • What kind of impression would you like to make?
    • Is your outfit formal or informal?
    • How will you coordinate the colors of your outfit with the color of the jewelry?
    • Do you want to wear customized pieces of jewelry, and does the jewelry have a sentimental story behind it?
    • Does the jewelry match your style?

    Lastly, you should wear silver or gold jewelry skin tone; it is best to wear what’s comfortable. Always go with jewelry you will love wearing.
