How to Match Jewelry with Your Outfit

Have you ever wondered about how to match jewelry with your outfit? There are many factors that come into play, including color, style, season and whether your intention is to dress up or go casual. Matching colorful gemstones to clothing always presents a stylish appearance, whether they match exactly or they complement the color of your outfit, like reds to greens or oranges to blues do.

Wear a single piece or match and stack to create a stylish look like the photo above with the stunning Entwine Gemstone Cuff Bracelet featuring prasiolite.
