We may receive commissions from links on this page, but we only recommend products we love and deem 'redhead friendly'. Full Disclosure.

Looking to purchase new ‘redhead friendly’ jewelry? Redheads should opt for metals that will be in harmony with their gorgeous red hues, especially items closer to the hair such as necklaces and earrings.


Wear yellow gold for a more glam look. It is a warm colored classic metal in which many women choose to wear. It looks great on redheads because it brings out the rich colors in our hair as well as our golden highlights; especially medium to darker toned redheads.

Tip: The gold should not be a dull gold, but a bright and striking gold color.

Rose gold is a warm colored metal, much like yellow gold. If you tend to reach for yellow gold all the time, guide yourself to choose rose gold pieces instead! It has similar contrasting effects as yellow gold, but it’s a little more toned down. The copper/icy pink tone in the metal can look great with cold vibrant colors. Wear rose gold jewelry to complement your ravishing red hair and make your color appear more intense.

Tip: Pair rose gold with earthy tones like brown, khaki, charcoal, nude, olive or vibrant colors like turquoise and coral.


Silver is another classic, neutral metal for redheads to wear in jewelry. It tends to be the most popular metal for people to wear no matter what color hair they have. It’s a great choice for redheads because it goes well with our cooler toned complexion. Our blue-colored veins tend to show through our fair skin more than others, and silver jewelry allows us to keep the cooler complexion our skin naturally has.

Tip: Redheads with light to medium shades of red hair to choose silver.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match all three types of metal jewelry. I love wearing each separately as well. It all depends on how I’m feeling that day and what I want my outfit to look like. The good news is that redheads look fantastic wearing all three metals. It all depends on preference and what look you’re going for.

Rock it like a Redhead!
