Nothing quite brings a look together like topping it off with just the right piece of Majestical Jewelry. Pairing the right jewelry to accentuate your skin tone can be the added pizzazz a style calls for. Here are a few tips for choosing the jewelry that best flatters your skin tone. Further helpful tips for this and any other jewelry-related subject can be found at majestical.

Determine Your Skin Tone

This is not difficult at all. Locate an area of skin where your veins are visible. The underside of your wrist or the bend in your elbow will probably be the best locations. If your veins appear blue, you have cool skin tones. Should they appear greenish in hue, you have warm skin tones.

Another way to determine your skin tone is to take a gold piece of fabric, along with a silver piece, and hold each one up to your face in the mirror. You are looking for the color that brightens your complexion the most and naturally look the best.

You employ the same technique when choosing cosmetics. The goal being, as with make-up, to accentuate the already beautiful features you have.

Cool skin tones are typically found on individuals with blue, brown, or gray eyes and that have naturally blonde, brown, or black hair. Cool skin tones are the most common coloring palette.

Warm skin tones are found on folks with brown, black, or hazel eyes and that have naturally red, orange or strawberry blonde hair. These tones may be found on individuals sporting brown hair with a reddish tint as well.

The following is a list of jewelry that complements cool skin tones. Keep in mind however, these are just suggestions, and beauty is ultimately in the eye of the beholder.

• Silver pieces
