Regardless of what anyone says, we believe that the face is the index for any person. And, besides adding style and glamour, earrings actually frame and add definition to the face (much like the hair style). Wearing the right earrings to suit your face shape will flatter and define your features for sure. With this in mind, we have created a guide to help choose earrings based on your face type. Read on!
First things first, it is easy to determine your face shape. Pull back your hair and look at yourself in a mirror, trace your face’s shape by using lipstick or soap. Alternately, simply measure the length and width of your face. Here, we discuss the right type of earrings for 5 face shapes.Round Shaped Face
If the widest point of your face is across the cheekbones, narrowing at the jawline and forehead, we are looking at a round face. Long styles suit women with round shaped faces. Teardrop and dangle styles are excellent choices which help to elongate the face. Our Corona Small Pear Sterling Silver Earrings with Yellow Chalcedony and Artisan Little Hearts Sterling Silver Earrings with White Topaz are fine choices!
Oval Shaped Face
If your face narrows from the cheeks to the chin creating an oval shape, then you are in luck! Most earrings would suit you. Studs, hoops, chandeliers, you name them! Our Corona Sterling Silver studs with Amethyst are simple and elegant at the same time. Will go with most outfit choices!
Heart Shaped Face
When the brow is wider than the cheeks, we are looking at a heart-shaped face. The cheeks further taper all the way down to the chin. Earrings with curves and elongated lines will be most flattering in this case. Our Corona Round Stone Sterling Silver earrings with Green Onyx will look great on this face type.
Square Shaped Face
If your face does not slim a whole lot from the cheekbone to the brow or from the cheekbone to the jawline, you are square shape faced. Hoops and dangling earrings are most flattering for square shaped faces. Earrings with rounded designs will soften the jawline and cheekbones. Our Artisan Paisley Sterling Silver Earrings with Green Onyx will help define your face.
Diamond Shaped Face
A slightly longer face with a narrow forehead and chin marked by strong cheekbones implies a diamond shaped face. We would recommend earrings with more width than length to balance out the features. Earrings with delicate drops are great for this face shape. Our Aurora Blue Topaz and Grey Moonstone Stud Earrings are a great choice!
