Looking to purchase new ‘Redhead Friendly’ jewelry? Redheads should opt for metals that will be in harmony with their gorgeous red hues, especially items closer to the hair such as necklaces and earrings.
The choice between gold or silver jewelry for redheads ultimately depends on personal preference and skin tone. Both gold and silver can complement red hair beautifully, but there are some considerations to keep in mind:
1. Skin undertone: If you have warm undertones in your skin (yellow, peach, or olive), gold jewelry tends to complement your complexion better. If you have cool undertones (pink or blue), silver jewelry might be more flattering.
2. Eye color: Consider your eye color as well. Gold jewelry can enhance green or hazel eyes, while silver jewelry can accentuate blue or gray eyes.
3. Outfit and occasion: The outfit you’re wearing and the occasion can also influence your jewelry choice. Gold jewelry often works well with warmer-colored clothing, while silver can complement cooler tones.
4. Personal style: Ultimately, choose the metal that resonates with your personal style and makes you feel confident and comfortable.
Remember, there are no strict rules when it comes to jewelry. Mix and match different pieces to find what suits you best and complements your overall appearance. Here are some more tips when wearing different shades of jewelry:
Wear yellow gold for a more glam look. It is a warm colored classic metal in which many women choose to wear. It looks great on redheads because it brings out the rich colors in our hair as well as our golden highlights; especially medium to darker toned redheads.
Tip: The gold should not be a dull gold, but a bright and striking gold color.
Rose gold is a warm colored metal, much like yellow gold. If you tend to reach for yellow gold all the time, guide yourself to choose rose gold pieces instead! It has similar contrasting effects as yellow gold, but it’s a little more toned down. The copper/icy pink tone in the metal can look great with cold vibrant colors. Wear rose gold jewelry to complement your ravishing red hair and make your color appear more intense.
Tip: Pair rose gold with earthy tones like brown, khaki, charcoal, nude, olive or vibrant colors like turquoise and coral.
Silver is another classic, neutral metal for redheads to wear in jewelry. It tends to be the most popular metal for people to wear no matter what color hair they have. It’s a great choice for redheads because it goes well with our cooler toned complexion. Our blue-colored veins tend to show through our fair skin more than others, and silver jewelry allows us to keep the cooler complexion our skin naturally has.
Tip: Redheads with light to medium shades of red hair look great with silver.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match all three types of metal jewelry. I love wearing each separately as well. It all depends on how I’m feeling that day and what I want my outfit to look like. The good news is that redheads look fantastic wearing all three metals. It all depends on preference and what look you’re going for.
Rock it like a Redhead!
