What Colour Jewellery Goes With Everything?

When choosing jewellery to gift to a teenager, you’re probably looking for something which goes with everything. There are a few things to consider here, like the colour of the metal, the colour of the stones and the type of jewellery that you choose. 

This guide will help you choose the perfect piece for your favourite teen girl, but you can apply this to any gift that you might be buying someone. And if you know a teen girl with a birthday later in the year, you should sign up to our mailing list and we’ll remind you to buy something for her at Christmas!

Grandmothers, godmothers and aunts love shopping with us because all our pieces are tried and approved and, no matter what you buy, we’ll gift wrap it for free. 

Metal Colour

When purchasing jewellery, you have three colour metals to choose from: silver, gold and rose gold. While they may not be made from those materials (ie, a silver ring might be white gold plated or made from stainless steel), it helps that there are not too many options. 

For a teenager, the best metal colour for jewellery is silver. Silver goes well with almost all colours of clothes and it’s likely that most of their existing jewellery collection is silver, meaning they can pair it with other pieces or even layer a necklace or bracelet. In addition, silver jewellery is less flashy than gold jewellery in most cases, making it a more age-appropriate option for teenagers under the age of 16. 

We recently completed a survey of mums in the UK with teenagers, and most said they would opt for silver jewellery for their teen over gold. And most didn’t even mention rose gold as an option – it appears to have gone out of fashion over the last ten years or so.

Stone Colour

This is a given – the best stone colour which will go with anything is a clear stone. You don’t always have to buy diamonds though – cubic zirconia is a very affordable stone option which you can find on both costume and fine jewellery. 

However, if you’d like to gift something more sentimental for your favourite teen’s birthday, then you can buy a birthstone necklace on a silver chain, as well as a pair of earrings to match.

What type of jewellery goes with anything?

If you’re shopping for a teenager, you’re probably looking for something which she’ll enjoy wearing often. In that case, we find that bracelets are the best gift for a teenager. She can wear a bracelet with other pieces of jewellery without it perfectly matching, and we have lots of cool options. 

We find that silver bangles are also very popular, with our survey suggesting that teen girls are asking for them for their birthdays. 


If you’re looking for a gift which goes with anything, you’re best to buy a silver piece of jewellery. Even better, a silver bracelet, which we have lots of!
