When on a fun trip you can carry off well with any coloured gemstone finger ring or earrings. Whereas while formal occasions, they need special preparation for selecting jewellery and gemstone types, as you know all eyes will be on you.

The simple gesture of wearing the outfit with the gemstone will help you to get the first look at your fashion presence. For trying out different outfits with jewellery, you can observe which combination makes you look and feel the best, go for it!

1. Coordinate Your Colors

Before you can put together any outfit, you need to understand how to coordinate colours. This means using colours that complement each other rather than those that clash. This is what will ultimately draw the entirety of an outfit together and make you look good.

White and black are still ruling in fashion and these coloured outfits never go wrong as white brings out the beauty of every coloured unset boulder opal gemstone. Matching gemstones jewellery with dress always works and many times contrasting colours work great for the final elite look.

Since the unset boulder opal has playful colours from darker to lighter shades, you’re going to need to get wardrobe items that go with it. According to fashion designers and celebrity stylists, the best colours to pair with it navy blue, midnight blue, lavender, aubergine, dusty rose, and peach. Consider looking around for blouses in these colours!

2. Spectacular Shapes

Most gemstones come in a variety of cuts and shapes, and the unset boulder opal is no exception. For this reason, you’re going to want to look for patterns that match the gemstone cuts on your favourite pieces of jewellery. You’re also going to want to get cuts of opal that go with the patterns on your pre-existing favourite blouses or purses.

For example, if you have a shirt you love that has teardrop shapes on it, consider getting a pear-shaped unset boulder opal. You want everything to go together, after all, that’s the common theme here!

As you choose spectacular shapes of opals, keep in mind that gemstones do not lose their value. Hence, make sure to source your gemstone by consulting an experienced gemologist from Opals Down Under to ensure that your little trinket is a masterpiece forever. 

3. Coordinate Within Jewellery Pieces

When choosing jewellery set with unset boulder opal gemstones, you’re going to want to make sure that the rest of the piece complements the stone. While yellow or rose gold looks great with other stones, the heat of these colours will clash with calm and cool shades of unset boulder opal. 

Instead, try incorporating clear or white diamonds (if you want other stones in the jewellery) as well as a silver or white-gold band. It’s important to note why natural gemstones like unset boulder opal retain and even grow in value.

Preferably, getting an expert opinion before purchasing here at Opals Down Under sounds like a good idea. Additionally, a certificate from a trusted gemological institute needs to be presented before purchase to safeguard from any sort of fraud.

4. Match Your Other Jewellery

If you’re going to wear other jewellery at the same time as your favourite aquamarine piece, that’s awesome! Just make sure that the colours of the various pieces you wear at once all complement each other.

Blue topaz goes well with blue-green coloured unset boulder opal because it’s a similar hue- just a bit darker. For example, you can get beautiful dangling earrings in blue topaz and wear them with an aquamarine ring or necklace.

Turquoise is also great if you want to have an all-blue ensemble. In fact, you can wear all three of these gemstones together! Purple and green also go well with unset boulder opal, so consider those colours as well.
