Pieces of jewellery are not simply fashion accessories; they reflect the personality of the wearer. From white gold to yellow gold, there are many metals used in the design of jewellery creations. Did you know that some metals suit you better than others? While it is important to follow your tastes and instincts, don’t hesitate to ask your jeweller for advice to help you choose the metal that is best for you. Below are our tips on choosing your jewellery according to your skin undertone as well as a selection of jewellery that may be just right for you.
Know your skin undertone
It is not always obvious which skin undertone you have. The easiest way is to look at your wrist, especially your veins. Do you have blue veins? Then you have a cool skin undertone. Do you have green veins? In this case, your skin undertone is warm. If you are not sure, it’s because you have a neutral skin undertone.
Which metals and stones are best for warm undertones?
Naturally tanned and sun-kissed skin will undoubtedly be enhanced by yellow gold, which will highlight and illuminate the skin. Warm undertones can also opt for rose gold jewellery. As for stones, we advise you favour yellow, orange and green ones. Yellow sapphire, imperial topaz and emerald are your best bets.

Which metals and stones are best for cool undertones?
Cool skin undertones, and thus paler complexions, are enhanced by silver, white gold and platinum. These metals can be paired with red, purple and blue coloured stones such as rubies, amethysts or even blue sapphires for a pure, fresh look.

Why keep it simple when it can be complicated? Following the success of asymmetrical jewellery, brands are increasingly offering mismatched earrings. A rising trend that is sure to continue. If you want to get on board, here are our tips and a selection of earrings to be worn together!
Why go with mismatched earrings?
Most of the time, when you buy earrings, they are identical. By mismatching, you can mix up your earrings and create a new look. You can easily imagine wearing a stud on the left and a dangly piece on the right. Another option is to wear one earring in a particular shape paired with another in a different shape. It’s all about being bold yet not haphazard! And above all, don’t forget to have fun!
Our tips for choosing mismatched earrings
If you don’t normally do so, don’t choose overly extravagant pieces. The combination should be subtle and harmonious; thus, it is easier to match studs with studs, dangle earrings with dangle earrings, and hoops with hoops. And good news! You can once again wear that earring that you hadn’t wanted to throw away but had gone untouched since you lost the other one in the pair. You can also expand your possibilities by buying pairs from the same collection and mixing and matching the ones you wear together.
Here is a selection of earrings that you can mix and match at will for a completely harmonious and stylish look!
