If you have light hair and eye colour (blue, grey) choose earrings with light coloured stones (white, light blue and green, turquoise, light pink).

If you have light hair colour and dark eyes you may choose earrings with warm coloured stones (yellow, yellow-brown, brown).

If you are a brunette pick earrings with bright colours.

Dark and bronze skin types are comparable with golden or bronze coloured earrings.
