How To Wear Dark and Light

Some outfits look better with light colored gemstones, while others look better with a dark-colored jewel. This is a general way of saying this, and it doesn't solve your dark or light dilemma.

For light colored gemstones, their warmth and unique shine work correctly with bohemian styles and vintage looks. Think along the lines of plaid skirts, dark-colored jackets, and even one of those military jackets that would result in a fabulous boho-chic look when paired with a light-colored gemstone. Just make sure you complete the look with light red lipstick and eyeliner that would put the pharaohs of old to shame.

On the other hand, dark gemstones are great when paired with light-colored outfits or formal wear.

If you want to go all formal, then your jewelry should communicate the same. For example, your dark blue business suit will work well when paired with deep blue colored Amethyst Earrings with specks of gold. Whether it is a business meeting or an interview, your audience will undoubtedly take you seriously when you choose jewelry that accentuates the formal look.

More Glam

The uniqueness gemstone colors make them the best jewelry for evening jewelry, especially if you want to pair them with precious metals. Dark gemstones may lack the warmth of the light-colored gemstones, but they have something even better; that is a sleek and cool look, making them the perfect statement makers.

You can glam your look with either dark or light gemstones. Choose your favorite outfit and have an interesting hairstyle. Then get a dramatic tone for your lipstick, and you will wow everyone with your look.

Sometimes it will depend on your mood. If you feel happy, you will want to wear light-colored gemstone jewelry. If you feel cool or serious about something, you might want to go darker with your gemstone selection. This is if you are the kind of person that dresses according to your mood.

End The Dilemma

There is only one way to end the dilemma of whether to choose a light or dark gemstone. If you feel adventurous, you can wear both the light and dark-colored gemstone to create a unique contrast in your look. It could be a layered look or different gemstones for the pieces you decide to wear that day. Just know how to combine them for that stunning look. And just like that, the dilemma ends.
