Vintage Gemstone Jewelry - How To Choose Your Perfect Piece

It's not necessarily easy to choose the perfect piece of vintage gemstone jewelry, but taking into consideration several aspects it shouldn't be a problem.

We all know that people - and especially women - have always been drawn to the beauty of vintage gemstone jewelry, seduced by its sparkle, elegance, and sophistication. Faced with a multitude of beautifully decorated jewels, it sometimes proves difficult to choose just one model.

The selection procedure should not only be made taking into consideration the specific design, but also the materials used, the craftsmanship, as well as the degree of compatibility with the wearer's features, such as his skin color for example.

In the case of more spiritual people, there is also a general concern regarding the compatibility between certain precious and semiprecious stones and the zodiac signs.

So how do you choose the perfect vintage gemstone jewelry for you? Criteria such as shade and symbolism can guide you on the right path, but there are other details to pay attention to before you buy.

How To Chose The Perfect Gemstone Vintage Jewelry

1. The Color Of Your Skin - Crucial Detail

First of all, you should choose the vintage gemstone jewelry piece you fancy according to your skin color. Because if you want the jewel you choose to compliment your beauty, it should be in harmony with your skin tone (cool, warm, or neutral).

Skin with a cool undertone is light in color, with a reddish or pink tinge, and is sensitive to the sun. White vintage gold jewelry is recommended for these women or men. Blue, violet, green, and turquoise are the shades that suit them best. So they can wear vintage gemstone jewelry with stones such as emerald, topaz, amethyst, tanzanite, aquamarine, or sapphire.

Skin with a warm undertone has a yellow or peach tint and tans more easily and evenly. Yellow vintage gold jewelry with precious and semi-precious gemstones is the ideal choice for women with warm undertones. As for the color of the gemstones, yellow, gold, orange, pink, and red are their favorites.

They can wear vintage jewelry with stones such as garnet, citrine, yellow topaz, or ruby. Neutral undertones are a combination of warm and cool. These women and men are the luckiest because any color suits them. So they can wear white, yellow, or rose gold vintage gemstone jewelry without any problems. Although they can enjoy the charm of any gemstone, the ones that compliment their skin are pastel shades: dusty pink, peach, vermilion, or pastel blue.
