Discover the Power of Complementary Colors in Your Jewelry: A Guide

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I love to combine colors from the same color range. But... if you want to stand out, make your jewelry shine even more, or make that orange blazer pop...? Then choosing complementary colors is definitely a good idea! 💎💥

What Are Complementary Colors?

Complementary colors are opposite colors on the color wheel, which reinforce each other when used side by side. By cleverly using complementary colors in your outfit, you can create a visually appealing contrast and make your jewelry stand out.

Gemstones and Complementary Colors:
When selecting gemstones for your jewelry , it's important to consider how they match the colors of your clothes. Combining gemstones with complementary colors can make a strong statement and take your outfit to the next level. Take, for example, a blue lapis lazuli with a yellow dress. Or an orange blazer with soft green aventurine earrings .


Blue lapis lazuli and yellow dress:
The colors blue and yellow are complementary to each other. By wearing a beautiful blue lapis lazuli pendant or bracelet with a yellow dress, you can create a striking contrast that makes your outfit shine. The deep blue of the lapis lazuli contrasts beautifully with the bright yellow color, giving you a vibrant and stylish look.

- Red and Green: A bold orange blazer with green aventurine earrings for a festive look that draws attention. Or combine green jewelery from Swarovski Elements with red clothing such as a red skirt.


- Purple and yellow: An amethyst bracelet with a yellow top adds a touch of mystery and vibrancy to your look.

The importance of personal style

While complementary colors are a valuable guideline, it is essential to consider your personal style and preferences when combining colors. Experiment and discover which combinations suit you best and reflect your unique personality. Remember that fashion is a form of self-expression, and your unique style is what brings life to your jewelry and outfits.


Using complementary colors in your jewelry can have a stunning effect on your outfit and make your handmade jewelry shine :).
