Jewellery that matches your Skin Tone
India’s diverse climate and geographical terrain has led to Indians developing varied skin tones. Northerners may have cooler skin hues and as we move from north to south, closer to the equator, skin tones appear to change. Skin tones, textures and hair colour become important features that let you decide what metal colour suits and highlights the colour of your skin.
The tone of your skin can be complimented by the right gemstones and metals.
Determining your skin tone is simple. Locate a body area where veins are visible - the wrist serves the purpose. Based on the colour of the veins, skin tone is generally classified as cool, warm or neutral.
Cool Skin Tone:
If you identify bluish coloured veins and pink or rose red undertones, then you have a cool skin tone.
You can play it safe with white gold, platinum and silver jewellery. Diamonds and pearls work best, as do gemstones of pink, purple, blue, red and magenta.
On the other hand, earthy tones such as brown, gold, oranges and turquoise colours paired with either yellow gold or rose gold metal complement this skin tone.
Warm Skin Tone:
Green veins and yellow or yellow or golden-apricot undertones against a white background define warm skin tone.
Choose gold jewellery or gold toned pearls over white gold or platinum. Gemstones with earthy tones in brown, orange, green, yellow, peach and turquoise are a good choice.
Neutral Skin Tone:
This is characterised by predominant pink, yellow or olive undertones.
Lucky for you! Gold, platinum and white gold can be worn, but try to avoid too much yellow or too much blue. Gemstones in white, green, rose pink, brown, soft grey can all be worn without any hesitation.
Our exclusive Jewellery Makeover Service lets you decipher what style and design of jewellery really complements your face structure, skin tone and personality. Our Jewellery Makeover Consultant would be happy to guide you through the jewellery trends and various options available at your disposal and help you choose styles and designs that would be perfect for you.
Often, women wonder why one piece of jewellery looks stunning on someone but the same style may not suit their own face. Choosing the right design and style of jewellery is as important as buying clothes that suit your body type. Many a times, coloured gemstones complement your eyes and skin, just as how some coloured outfits look better on you. Whatever be your choice of jewellery, it is meant to reveal your inner diva. Chances are you’ll intuitively know what suits you and what doesn’t! Faux jewellery can easily be borrowed from friends but how do you experiment with real jewellery and buy the one that really brings out your best features?
Here are a few tips that would help you effortlessly pick the styles and designs that are perfect for you.
Let’s get started with a face type
To determine your face type, pull back your hair into a bun or tight pony. This will help you accurately figure out your face type. Stand in front of the mirror and identify your face type as one of these shown below. You may not find an exact match, so look for the shape that is closest to your face type.
You’re lucky if you have an oval shaped faced! Considered as the ‘ideal’ face type, the Oval face is well balanced, not overly angular or rounded. The face structure is the widest near the cheekbones and narrows slowly as you go down the jaw line.
Being a soft face type, most jewellery styles like circles, hoop or drop earrings and chokers necklaces look great!
Once of the most common face types, the square shape appears to be sharply angular at corners. The jaw is seemingly sculpted and sharp just like Hollywood Actress Lucy Liu or Singer Rihanna.
Drop earrings help in creating an illusion of added length which suits this face type well.
Widest at the cheekbones, this face type looks exactly as the name suggests. Typically, this shape is wider than the oval shape.
To add length to the face, tear drop earrings or long necklaces are styles that accentuate the features.
Similar to the shape of a triangle, this face type is longer at the cheekbones and chiselled at the jaw line.
Button style jewellery and shorter necklaces suit this shape quite a lot.
Heart shaped faces are wider at the temple and narrow at the chin. The cheekbones usually attract attention as they have soft curves at the jaw.
To balance the narrow chin, this face type requires earring styles that are wider at the bottom. Studs, Button Earrings and inverted triangles add some poise to the face.
Quite uncommon and angular, this face type is characterized with narrow temples and jaw. The face is structured in such a way that the length is widest across the cheekbones. Since the face is very sharp, it can carry more stunning and dramatic designs.
Cut crystals look gorgeous on this face type.
Once you’ve found your match, we’ll bring to you a wide range of earrings and necklaces from our own collection that will complement you and your outfits.
As you must have realized, jewellery makeover is a crucial aspect that helps accentuates the features you love and draws attention away from those features you’d prefer to downplay.
How to Choose Your Wedding Jewellery
It's the most important day of your life and everything has to be just perfect - including your wedding jewellery.
There's sure to be a spring in your step and happiness in your heart as you shop. Given the rush and lack of time, at times shopping for wedding jewellery becomes a rather hurried affair. If you are clear in your mind about your requirements and budget, shopping for your wedding jewellery can be an easy task.
You could also take professional help while buying your wedding jewellery. However, if your budget is tight and you prefer to make your own decisions, here are a few tips on buying the right wedding jewellery.
Selecting the Jeweller
It is important to buy your wedding jewellery from a reputed dealer. This not only ensures quality but you will also be able to pick and choose from a wide selection. Do a bit of research amongst your friends and on the net before narrowing down on potential jewellers. If your family has a favoured jeweller, buy your wedding jewellery from him - you may get better discounts.
Get the Style Right
Be sure that your wedding jewellery co-ordinates with the theme of your wedding. It should also look right with your wedding outfit and hair-do. For example, if your bridal dress is elaborately designed, then simple but elegant wedding jewellery will be perfect. Your jewellery should complement your dress and not overshadow it. Also decide on what kind of hair-do you will be sporting for the wedding. Most women prefer chandelier earrings with an upswept style. For more fussy hair-dos, an elegant pearl or diamond stud will be ideal.
Select Jewellery That is Timeless
Fashion trends will play an important role in the selection of your wedding jewellery. But some fashions are simply timeless. It makes sense to invest in jewellery that will always have allure. After all, you could pass it on to your children as a family heirloom.
Let Your Wedding Jewellery Speak for You
You not only have to look good on your wedding day, you also have to feel good. This is possible only if you are totally comfortable with the jewellery that you have selected. So, select pieces that are in tune with your personality. If you normally prefer the simple look, then your wedding jewellery should reflect this philosophy. If you go against your instincts while shopping for wedding jewellery, you may end up with some beautiful pieces that don't really appeal to you - and this can detract from your glow on your wedding day.
Buy Only What You Need
Weddings can be a financial strain as they often go over budget. Be careful when you shop for your wedding jewellery. Make a list of what you actually need to complete your look. The range of bridal jewellery is wide extending from rings, necklaces, tiaras, bracelets and other specialty pieces depending on which part of the world you live in. But you do not really need to buy everything. Decide on the budget, make a plan and stick to it.
The days of buying heavy jewellery to wear on your wedding day and then locking it up forever are long gone. Most women now prefer to buy jewellery that they can use time and again.
Buying Jewellery Online
Buying jewellery online is ideal as it does not burn a hole in your pocket and makes the shopping process easier. Whether you are an e-shopping veteran or a first timer, e-shopping has its own charm and advantages.
Speed: Select; click; enter information. This is how easy buying diamonds over the internet can be, and all this when you're just sitting at home.
Convenience: Online shopping eliminates the pain of waiting in traffic, struggling to get a parking space, enduring pushy salesmen and other factors that can exhaust you completely.
Selection: The options available online for purchasing are way wider than what you would find in stores. Shopping online also helps you compare diamonds from different brands and see their pros and cons.
Parameters That Should Make it to Your Checklist
The following checklist will be of great help while choosing the right online store for your shopping plan, because you'll need to gauge the authenticity of the jewels sold and the terms and conditions involved with the purchase.
This can be a major life saver when doubts plague your mind regarding the purchase. The advantage of shopping online will be incomplete without a customer care. Check whether the store from where you are buying the diamond has a customer care service. This matters a lot as you can just pick up your phone and dial if you have any problem.
Read through the site's return policy meticulously. It is vital to know and understand the policy before you buy the stone. Some sites may have a 30-day money back policy, but they might have included a re-stocking fee. It is ideal to go for a site that has a 30-day policy.
If a site doesn't have a return policy mentioned; it would be best to move on without spending much time there.
Nature of Shipment
This might not be a critical issue for cheaper pieces of jewellery, but if you are making a huge purchase online, you should go for a store that provides insurance during shipments. This is one factor that can make a big difference.
A variety of labs offer diamond certificates. However, GIA and AGS are the two renowned labs whose certifications are accepted all across the globe. Ensure that the store that you choose sells diamonds that comply with these standards.
It is always preferable to go for jewellery items that have good images. High definition images are used by professional jewellers and have their brand indented on it too. So, the next time you buy a piece of jewellery online, see if the image appeals to you as it would give you a fair idea about the product too.
Check the pricing of the product you want to buy on many online platforms; this gives you a fair idea about the price difference for the same product. The price for branded jewellery varies from one website to other. Make sure that you are not spending more than you are supposed to.
Conducting your research before making a purchase and comprehensively going through the above parameters can help you in the long run. You can go for a site through word-of-mouth too, as good sites are often reputed and known for their efficient services.
Options while buying Solitaires:
Research tools: Bullet Filters to narrow down results
With access to thousands of diamonds it becomes a daunting task to zero in on the diamond you like. Choose from among various criteria like shape, colour, clarity, carat weight and price. Try various combinations to help you shortlist the results to a few.
You can also view all the diamonds shortlisted in a single view using the Compare button. Just check all the diamonds you are interested in and click compare present at the bottom and top of the list. You can compare upto 4 diamonds at 1 go.
Bullet Advanced Search
Even a narrowed down list can run in hundreds. This is where the advanced search will help you further refine your search. You can use symmetry, polish, fluorescence, Certification lab among others.
Inventory Less Retailing
Retailing has evolved over the years but inventory always continued to hurt retailers. Even with sophisticated supply chain systems in place, a retailer would have to find ways to get rid of old inventory like season end sales, discounts and buy-one-get-one-free offers.
Here the web retailer doesn’t hold the thousands of diamonds in its inventory but offers various research tools to help find a diamond of their choice and budget. The retailer also plays the critical role of educator and after-sales service provider.
A diamond has so many characteristics which affects its value that there is a need for independent body to correctly record them and communicate it to the customers. If any diamond is incorrectly labelled, it could greatly reduce or ‘bump’ its value. Hence it is important that you buy only certified diamonds and that too of certifiers with highest integrity. At Jewelroof, we carry diamonds only by the most reputed certification houses like GIA and IGI.
A certification house lists all the characteristics of a diamond after carefully inspecting them in their labs by trained gemmologists. These characteristics are noted on a uniquely identified report which comes along with all the diamonds you purchase from us. Infact these Unique numbers are laser-inscribed on the girdle of a diamond to ensure the diamond and the certificate match.
Top 5 Mistakes to avoid while buying Jewellery Online
While people often assume that buying the right jewellery just involves showing up in a popular store and picking out the prettiest piece, there's more to buying jewellery than that - here are five mistakes that you should avoid while spending your money on carats and cuts!
If you think that taking the decision to buy jewellery is the tougher part, just wait till you actually start looking through collections - you're sure to be buried under tons of advice that your friends and family members will pile on you, eager to dish out their experiences from the past.
Men, in particular, are more likely to be clueless while buying jewellery for their partners, so here's a quick list of common mistakes that you can learn to avoid while spending your hard-earned cash on sparkly gifts for your companions.
Jewellery Myth #1 - 'More Expensive Is Better'
It's easy to mislead by the assumption that bigger is better', so people (read: men) often end up choosing jewellery based on the price rather than the style of the piece. It's better to fix a budget while buying jewellery as price points in the market can differ widely. In many cases, you might find cost-effective jewellery that looks splendid, so make a mental note never to pick a ring just because it's the most expensive of the lot!
Jewellery Myth #2 - 'Jewellery Transcends Occasions'
Yes, occasions do matter. Proposing to the love of your life with earrings in your hand might not exactly pan out the way you would have imagined it to. Know the occasion and pick your jewellery accordingly. Engagements call for exquisite rings plainly because they can speak volumes about your love and send out a signal that you're in it for the long haul. If you have a knack for steering clear of commitments, diamond studs and earrings will send across the right message.
Jewellery Myth #3 - 'All Jewels are Attractive'
When you're picking up jewels as a surprise gift, ensure that you know the person's tastes and preferences beforehand. You can't jump to the conclusion that your girlfriend loves gold earrings just because she owns three pairs - look closely and see what she prefers to wear on social occasions.
Studded stones that bring out the colour of her eyes might seem like a great idea - till you receive a plastic smile when she excitedly opens the box.
Jewellery Myth #4 - 'What's in a Cut?'
Traditional jewellers often display diamonds of different cut qualities together, just to sell the best available option that they possess. You might miss out on the diamond that has the best cut if you go for the one that looks best. The better the cut, the more brilliant your diamond will be!
Get your facts and needs straight when you decide on buying jewellery, as this will help you make the best purchase rather than the easiest one.
Jewellery Myth #5 - 'Just Drop In and Shop for One'
Jewels are expensive, so get a good idea about the intricacies involved before going jewellery shopping. If you're buying a diamond, you need to look for the 4Cs - Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat. If you're buying gemstones, you should have a good idea about the colours you're looking for, and what you're trying to convey to the person you're gifting it to.
If you're confused on what to buy, don't hesitate to ask for help; you can consult anyone ranging from your mom to experts who know their jewellery. Keep these common mistakes in mind when you pick up jewellery the next time - have fun shopping!
