Post 11 of 23

Contrary to popular belief, the purpose of jewelry is not to complement an outfit but to complement one’s features. Therefore, it is important to know what type of jewelry to wear in order to complement your positive features and hide those features which you find to be less flattering. While there have been a lot of articles on how to wear earrings and necklaces in order to complement facial features, little attention has been given so far to the importance of hand jewelry. Today, we are going to give you a few tips in order to teach you how to wear hand jewelry.

  • Hand sizes

If you are planning on wearing opulent rings and bracelets, there are a couple of things that you should know first. For starters, big bracelets and rings should only be worn by women with medium to large hands. Women with small hands and thin fingers should choose small and delicate jewelry pieces.

  • Manicures

Modern women are well aware of the importance of clean nails. However, the time when you could escape criticism with clean, trim nails is long gone. Nowadays, nail polish is an essential part of a  woman’s beauty set. If you like to wear sophisticated hand jewelry, it is best to choose pastel colors which only give the nails a clean look, without overshadowing the rest of the hand. Wearing both hand jewelry and sophisticated nail designs will make you look tacky. If you are not familiar with the latest nail trends, you should inspire yourself with some nail designs from This website features both simple nail designs and sophisticated nail ideas which work better with simple hand jewelry. Furthermore, a nice trick to remember is to contrast the color of your jewelry with the color of your hands. For example, if you are wearing jewelry with clear precious stones, try a dark nail polish or if you are wearing green jewelry pieces, try some red nails.

  • Hand care

Whether or not the jewelry that you plan to wear is big, you should know that hand jewelry immediately draws attention to your hands, and in doing so, it will highlight all flaws. It is often said that a woman’s hand speaks more about herself than any other part of her body. Therefore, it is important for the hands to feature not only clean, polished nails but also soft skin. So, make sure to buy a quality hand cream which you can keep in your purse in order to apply it whenever you need.

  • Balance

Last but not least, it is important to know how to balance your jewelry. For example, if you are wearing a sophisticated necklace and big earrings, it is best to avoid hand jewelry or to wear small, delicate rings. On the other hand, if there is no opulent jewelry framing your face, feel free to wear some big rings and a sophisticated bracelet.
