For each woman, decorations play a very large, practically vital role.They embroider her outfit; demonstrate status, are her self-expression, and memories of very favorite gifts. A woman who wears jewelry emphasizes her individuality and uniqueness, builds her own special image.
If you decide to wear several jewelries with gems at the same time, then look at how the stones fit together. It is not necessary that at the same time wearable jewelry with the same precious stones - they can be different, but not contradictory.
You can choose the stones by their color, the color of your eyes, by the day or month, you can wear your name stones or use feng shui stones grouped by belonging to the elements (water, earth, fire, metal, wood) or stones only of your zodiac sign - everything depends on the point of view, taste, personal preferences, traditions.
The combination of gems in jewelry "by color"
The combination of stones by color is an important aspect when selecting ornaments.
Transparent, white and black stones are suitable for everyone, so diamonds, onyxes and pearls are considered almost universal.
Red stones, especially scarlet natural rubies, do not accept almost any other stones. Rubies are suitable only for diamonds. As a rule, small stones with complex faceting are chosen.
In the black-blue-violet combination there is no harmony, it is a complex combination.Also, black stones cover all the deep crimson, brown hues.
A combination of orange and yellow stones with blue and violet is considered unacceptable.
So corundums and yellow diamonds are not recommended to wear with blue sapphires. Otherwise, yellow stones are also quite versatile and can be combined with any others.
Blue, purple and dark blue stones are combined with the entire gamut, except yellow, orange and black.
The green color of the stone is the best, it is combined with all colors.
Emeralds do not combine only with rubies, otherwise it is a very soft stone and accepts most other combinations.
Jewelers in selecting stones for jewelry are mainly guided by color matching and class matching (precious, semiprecious).
When making jewelry "tutti-frutti", or multi-colored, one should take into account the warmth of shades and brightness: pastel colors look better in combination with the same pastels, and the deep and rich colors of stones blend well with each other.
It is also possible to combine stones with transparent colors, for example, transparent, colorless stones such as diamond, cubic zirconia, crystals of rock crystal are perfectly combined with colored transparent stones.
Also, transparent stones are superbly combined with sharply contrasting black, for example, agate or onyx.
There are situations when you should not experiment with color at all. For example, for a wedding classic stones of white are better suited: diamonds, cubic zirkonia, pearls or opals.
