4 Tips to Help You Pick the Right Precious Metal and Stone for Your Wedding Jewelry

Picking the perfect wedding day accessories is almost as important as picking the actual wedding dress – so you definitely don’t want to leave this as a second-priority task on your list of “to-do’s”.

How do you do that? How do you choose the perfect precious metal and stone for your wedding jewelry?

I’ve gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more.

  • Know your skin undertone. There are three main skin undertones: warm, cool, and mixed. There are also multiple ways to determine which one you have – but one of the surest ways is to analyze the color of your veins. Are they bluish or purplish? Then it means you have a cool skin undertone. Are they yellow, olive, or green? Then it means you have a warm skin undertone. If you see both types of veins, it means you have a mixed skin undertone.
  • What does this mean? Well, people with cool undertones look better when wearing silver, white gold, and platinum, whereas people with warm undertones look better wearing yellow gold, rose gold, or copper shades. Those with mixed undertones can usually wear both – but this depends on a lot of other factors (for instance, some mixed undertone ladies look excellent with silver and rose gold, but so much with yellow gold and copper). When not sure, test it out: get a piece of yellow gold/ white gold/ rose gold jewelry next to your face’s skin and see which of the options makes you shine.
  • How about the stone? Well, the stone of your wedding jewelry should follow the same basic “cool toned/ warm toned” rule. However, if you want to match your stones with your flowers, with your wedding colors, or if you simply want to make your jewelry double as “Something Blue”, that’s fine. In the end, there’s an almost endless variety of ways you can combine precious metals and stones – and you can definitely find a design that makes your best features pop with elegance, grace, and femininity!
