Personalised Jewellery: What Style Best Suits You?

Personalised jewellery is a fantastic way to express your style and individuality, whether its a necklace, bracelet, or even a custom pin.

This blog aims to help you choose personalised jewellery that not only enhances your natural features, but also harmonises beautifully with your skin tone. We’ll also take your lifestyle into account and provide tips on hand placement and necklace lengths.




Personalised jewellery to match your skin tone 

When choosing jewellery, we recommend selecting colours that complement your skin tone as well as enhancing your overall appearance. When it comes to metal jewellery such as bracelets and necklaces, consider your skin’s undertone. Warm undertones harmonise with gold or rose gold, while silver or white gold complement better in cool undertones.

If you opt for a cord bracelet, earthy tones such as brown or tan complement warm skin tones, while cool skin tones are enchanced by colours like navy or black.

If you want a silicone wristband, then there’s a wider variety of colours to choose from. You could choose fluroscent shades that create a vibrant contrast with your skin, like opposite colours (orange and blue, green and pink) for a bolder look, or more basic shades that blend subtly for a more understated look (blue and green, red and purple).


But how do you know if your skin tone is warm or cool? 

The easiest way to know your skin tone is by doing a vein test under natural light. Greenish veins indicate warm undertones, while bluish or purplish veins suggest cool undertones. Another method is the eye and hair colour test; cool undertones often have blue, grey, or green eyes with ash-brown, black, or blonde hair. Whereas warm undertones are often associated with brown, amber, or hazel eyes.

Keep in mind that these methods are just helpful indicators. Individual characteristics can vary, and some people might have neutral undertones. For the most accurate analysis, consider consulting a professional colour analyst or makeup artist. 




What style suits your lifestyle the best? 

Personalised jewellery can also align with your daily routine as well. If you have an active lifestyle, it’s best to consider jewellery made from a durable material like stainless steel that can withstand the rigor of wear and tear. Our Bounce bracelet features an adjustable knotted clasp for extra comfort.

Silicone wristbands are also a good choice for daily use because they are waterproof and easy to wear. They are particularly good if you have a nickel allergy because they contain no metal whatsoever. Check out our secret message wristband for a more discrete approach to your personalised jewellery.

Plated or coated jewellery can be more susceptible to abrasion, which can cause the coating to fade or chip over time. So, if you like to wear multiple bracelets or necklaces at once, consider the potential impact of friction between them. Avoid wearing pieces that might scratch or rub against each other excessively.

On the other hand, silver jewellery requires additional care. Keep your silver jewellery away from substances like perfume, lotion, and pool chemicals to prevent tarnishing.

If you don’t like to wear jewellery every day, consider a personalised pin for your coat or bag.




Hand size and necklace length tips: 

Choosing which wrist to wear your personalised bracelet is down to personal preference and comfort. For adjustable styles, you can always choose cord bracelets, or those with expandable wire.

In terms of closures, magnetic clasps or memory wire can be more convenient for those who find traditional clasps difficult. When selecting a personalised bracelet, take into consideration the comfort, adjustablity, and ease of use to enhance the overall enjoyment of wearing these beautiful accessories.

For necklaces, the length can significantly impact your overall appearance. Take into account the length of your neck and the neckline of your outfit. If your top has a high neckline, a choker-length necklace can beautifully complement it. On the other hand, if you’re sporting an open neckline, longer necklaces can add an elegant and graceful touch.

In conclusion, personalised jewellery offers a multitude of options to express your individuality. Choose colours that harmonise with your skin tone and otp for durable materials that align with your lifestyle. By considering these elements, you can wear personalised jewellery that authentically represents your personal style and elevate your overall aesthetic.
