One of the best things about jewellery is that there are no hard and fast rules, just a few recommendations! In any case, on the off chance that you want to use earrings to highlight and compliment your facial features, here are some suggestions on what will compliment your face shape. To discover the studs that best suit you – and the ones you ought to avoid – see our best suggestions for circular, square, oval, jewel, and heart moulded faces.
When selecting earrings for a round face shape, look for dangling designs. Long ornaments that create the illusion of length can help to lengthen a round face. This can have a slimming effect on a rounder face. Earrings that dangle below your chin are ideal, but avoid wider chandeliers or round dangles because they will clash with your shape.
A square face shape is distinguished by sharp angles and a similar width of the forehead and jawline. A square face is defined and sharp, the right pair of earrings can help soften the hard edges, especially the jawline. It's all about balance with a square face, so go for medium-large round or oval shaped earrings. Hoop earrings are the best option for those with square faces as their rounded shape helps to soften the angles. Hoops come in a variety of colours, sizes, and styles, allowing you to truly customise your look. Avoid square shapes because they will make your face appear too sharp.
An oval face is characterised by a longer face, wide cheekbones, and a soft jaw. The oval face shape is the easiest to dress up or down. Almost any earring design will flatter your cheekbones and face length and is compatible with your face type. Earrings with a large drop should be avoided because they can cause your face to appear to sag. To highlight your lovely oval shape, we recommend studs, hoops, small drops, or huggies.
A diamond face has a narrow forehead and chin, with the eyes being the most prominent feature. Because this face shape has a lot of widths and angles, keeping your earrings simple is the best way to balance them out. Choose a classic pair of stud earrings to highlight your strong features. Small cute studs are lovely accents that should be in everyone's jewellery collection.
The heart shape has a wider forehead than the cheeks, with the lower half narrowing to the jaw to form a heart. The cheekbones are particularly eye-catching in this shape and should be highlighted with your earring choice. Choose earrings that are wider at the bottom to flatter the features and balance the sharp chin. Chandelier or teardrop earrings are the best choice, so look for pairs that are slim at the top, taper down, and end wide at the bottom. This fills out the lower half of the face and balances out the round top.
The most important rule of thumb is to avoid wearing earrings that are the same shape as your face.
Not sure what your face shape is? Do you need a pair of earrings that can be worn for any occasion? Diamond stud earrings are always a good choice. Genuine diamonds are instantly appealing due to their radiance. They'll draw attention to your features with just the right amount of understated elegance, allowing you to wear them with anything from jeans to a little black dress.
