With so many different types of jewelry out there to choose from, you might be overwhelmed and end up buying pieces that look good on others but do not really fit in with your own personal style or taste. I would like to talk about the basics on choosing different types of jewelry.
Choosing Jewelry: The Basic Guidelines
I would like to define the “right accessories” as the kind that would flatter your natural appearance. You need to consider many issues before you buy a certain piece, such as your height, skin tone, whether you want to give a shorter or longer illusion of a certain part of your body, and most importantly, your personality.
For instance, when you are looking for a necklace, you would want to get one that would fall below your bust line to give you more height, because the choker necklace will more likely make you seem shorter than you really are.
The shape of your face is another important factor when it comes to choosing jewelry pieces. If you have a round face, for example, would look better with stud earrings than hoops.
Anchor Jewelry, An Edgy Accessory
Anchor jewelry may be classified in the department of permanent tattoos because, well, they are permanent. A specialist will pierce a hole into your skin and embed into it what is referred to as an “anchor,” which is a titanium base, similar to a screw with a flat surface. Once the skin heals, the anchor’s top would be level to the rest of the skin in the area where you chose for it to be placed. You can attach an ornamental jewelry piece which works as the other half of it and you can easily and painlessly change this piece.
Gold Toned Or Silver Toned? How To Decide
If you are having trouble deciding on whether you look better with gold or silver, simply check the color of your veins (you can easily do that by looking at your inner wrists). If they’re greenish, gold will make your skin look more radiant. If they’re bluish, silver will enhance the natural glow of your skin.
Warm toned stones flatter those with greenish veins, while cool toned gems will look better on those with bluish veins. Of course, at the end of the day, it is still all about how you work it, so think of this as simply a suggestion and not a rule.
Would You Rather Choose: Edgy Anchor Jewelry Or Non-Invasive Accessories?
Well, it all depends on your personal style and taste. If you want to look sweet and classy just like Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” then you will never go wrong with pearls. If you want to look bad ass like Lisbeth Salander of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” then you might want to seriously consider getting anchor jewelry somewhere on your body.
