Looking for clothing that goes well with emerald jewelry? Experts suggest you take the following three steps:

  • Figure out the main color of the outfit you want to wear. For example if you’re planning to wear a yellow top with grey pants, then yellow is the main color.
  • Next look at a circular color wheel (one that places complementary colors opposite each other).
  • Find your main outfit color on the wheel and look across the circle to see its complement (the color you can add on as an accessory).

When determining what color combinations go well with jewelry, look at the jewel color on the color wheel and find its complement.

For example, the complementary color of green (color of an emerald) is red. Therefore, outfits that feature red as their main color look good with emerald jewelry.  The shade of red you choose to wear needn’t be the standard red color. Other shades of red, such as maroon, also complement emeralds. Purple, which is a combination of red and blue also makes a nice backdrop.  So keep that in mind when selecting your outfit.

Other color combinations are also worn with emeralds and are popular with non-experts. In general, for example, black and white outfits (plus shades of grey) go well with everything. While not complementary to a green emerald, some people prefer a blue outfit. Blues and greens make attractive color combinations suggesting a marine environment. And while a deep maroon is liable to make the emerald stand out more, some people would go with color consistency and select a green outfit when wearing emeralds.

If your emerald is surrounded by a gold setting or chain, you might want to avoid wearing gold or silver. While gold and green are lovely spring combinations, adding a gold dress to gold in the jewelry piece might be a bit of an overkill. A silver outfit might also clash with the gold jewelry setting.





  • Purple outfits: go with citrine, gold tone jewelry & even green emeralds
  • Red outfits: go with emerald jewelry
  1. Figure out the main color of your outfit, if you are wearing a yellow top with grey pants, yellow is your main color.
  2. Look at your main color on the wheel
  3. Look across from the main color of your outfit and see the complimentary colors of what you should add as an accessory.

black or white go well with everything. if you wanted to be a little more spiced up, a deep dark blue would go nicely. I DO NOT ADVISE TO WEAR GOLD OR SILVER, the necklace is already gold you don’t want to over kill, you want to highlight the necklace
