3 Key tips to choosing the right jewelry

1.Find your color 

: Most skin colours are divided into cool and warm.A good way to tell if gold or silver suits you more is by looking at the veins in your hand.If your veins appear mostly blue, you are cool toned that means silver is a better choice for you.On the other hand if they are mostly green you are warm toned  and gold will make you look more glowy. Having said that, this does not mean it is a universal rule but just a scale to determine preferences.

2.Don’t overcrowd

: Unless you are going for a wedding or a party, opt for one big statement piece.Either wear a statement necklace with no or small studs or chunky earrings with thin necklace or nothing.Wearing both will make you look like there is too much going on taking away the focus away from your face. Coco Chanel infamously recommended, “Before leaving the house, a lady should stop, look in the mirror, and remove one piece of jewelry.

3. Each piece must be proportional to your facial shape ,features and scale.

: You should wear the jewelry and not the other way round.Make sure each piece that you are wearing complements you.Look at yourself in the mirror closely and pay more attention to your facial features.If you have an angular jawline, angular neck pieces and jewelry will be a better fit.Avoid chokers if you have small neck.Look at your wrists, eyes and nose.If you have delicate and small features , opt for smaller delicate pieces like thin bracelets, studs, pendant necklaces .Imagine wearing a huge statement neckpiece on a small face.So spend some time figuring out your facial and body scale before picking your accessories.
