Yellow Gold Jewelry

One of the most commonly paired jewelry with a red dress is yellow gold. Both red and gold are warm colors and exude an attractive look when put together. Gold jewelry always looks natural and classic with red. Gold jewelry set with stones, preferably red stones like rubies, further enhances the beauty of your dress.

However, since too much red can be overwhelming at times, make sure that the studded gold jewelry you wear does not overlap with your dress. Think long dangly necklaces and earrings that may brush your dress and blend in. The jewelry you wear must stand out and be admired for its beauty.

White Gold/ Platinum Jewelry

On one end of the spectrum, we have gold paired with red to exude a warm look and at the other end of the spectrum; we have white gold or platinum paired with red. The crisp and polished look of white gold gives a cooler look to the warm hues of red color. It gives an exciting high-contrast look to your red dress.

This combination is not as overwhelming as red and gold; however, this pairing can give a playful look to your outfit. It adds a certain touch of pizzazz and elegance. Just like with gold jewelry, if you are wearing red stones with white gold, do not let your jewelry blend in with your dress. Dressed in a statement bracelet or a choker can make your dress outstanding on its own.



When it comes to selecting gemstone-studded jewelry, there is a lot to choose from, and it can be a formidable task. Let’s take a look at some of the favorite gemstones.

  • Diamonds, whether set in gold or platinum, always look classy and elegant. The clarity and sparkle tones of them down the red simultaneously complimenting it. Diamonds can give a casual look to your outfit if worn as a solitaire or they can give a formal look to your outfit if worn as a cluster.
  • Pearls are a classic, and they go well with almost any color. They give a regal touch to your outfit and are perfect to wear for a formal evening out.
  • Onyx brings out the drama and flair from your red dress. It stands out on its own and perfectly complements the red, warm hues of your dress.


  • Rubies, classically set in gold, add to the warmth of your red dress. However, when wearing rubies, make sure not to wear chunky jewelry and restrict it to just one or two pieces. Too many red accessories can confuse the eye and defy the purpose of wearing the jewelry.
