Just like perfecting your eyebrows shape is crucial for framing your face, earrings play the same role only to compliment your facial features by adding more definition.. It is pretty safe to say that the rule of thumb for accessorizing for face shapes is that mirroring your features in the jewelry you’re wearing is the best way to compliment your features. Long goes with long, round goes with round, square with square, etc. But naturally, like for any other lady out there it’s always fun to mix things up a little. You don’t want to be stuck with the same accessories every time you go out. There are plenty of sizes and shapes of earrings that will look fabulous with your features without having to mirror them. So now let’s learn what earrings will best compliment your face shape. Because as small and irrelevant earrings seem, the saying is true “a little goes a long way”.
1 || Oval Face
Wear long, dangle, drop or chandelier earrings that are thinner at the top and widen as they get longer. This shape helps to fill out the lower area of your face and give an elegant look.
2 || Long Shaped Face
Wear studs or short drops. This will give the illusion of a wider face and highlight your eyes. Choose colours that match your eyes.
3 || Round Face
Here you want to elongate your face by wearing long, dangle, drop or chandelier earrings. Earrings that begin with a thin line and elongate and have a larger interesting area at the bottom are ideal for this shape. Round faces shouldn’t wear disc earrings as this accentuates the roundness of the face too much. Rather, choose geometric designs and as long as you like.
4 || Square Face
Women with square-shaped faces have dominant jawlines and wide foreheads. The best earrings for this type of face are those that have round shapes or rounded edges. Studs, mid-length drops & long slim elegant shapes are best for this face shape.
5 || Heart Shaped Face
Long, dangle drops and chandeliers that end at or above the chin would suit this face shape. This earring shape helps to focus on and widen the mouth area.
6 || Rectangle Shaped Face
Rectangle-shaped face look angular and elongated. The perfect pair for this type of face are earrings in bold and, dramatic designs like chandelier type earrings, big hoops and drop earrings that look voluminous. These kinds of earrings make the face look less elongated. Fabulous studs are also wonderful for this they draw the eyes horizontally.
7 || Diamond Shaped Face
With a diamond face, you want to balance the angles of your face. Wearing chandelier earrings that are larger at the bottom will balance your face. Studs, or earrings close to the ear are also good suggestions. Avoid earrings that have the same shape as your face – wider at the top and/or middle and more narrow at the bottom (think diamond or triangle). With a diamond face, your eyes and the widest part of your face are on the same line.
