Have you ever tried on a pair of earrings and wondered if they really suited you?

There are many factors to take into account when choosing which jewellery to wear and your face is one of them. Everyone has their own unique face structure but generally speaking, face shapes fall into the categories below:

Each face shape has it's own unique features and characters and jewellery should be used to accentuate the great attributes of your face. Here are some tips on styles of jewellery that would suit your face based on your face shape.

 

 

ROUND

While choosing earrings for round face shape, make sure you opt for dangling designs. Elongate a round face with long ornaments that create an illusion of length. If you have a round face, look for long earrings that elongate your face. Earrings that float lower than your chin are ideal but don’t use wider chandeliers or round dangles, they’ll argue with your shape. Stick with a look that is narrow.

Celebrities who rock their round faces include Cameron Diaz, Mila Kunis and Emma Stone.

OVAL

Women with oval faces should opt for the opposite of the jewellery recommended to round faced women. Earrings for oval face will balance your long face. Wide Chandeliers, as well as earrings that widen at the bottom, circles, curves and large studs, are the best earrings for oval face. Furthermore, oval and teardrop styles look fabulous on oval faces.

Think Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek and Julianne Moore.

RECTANGULAR

A rectangle face is an oval face with a strong, angular jawline. Accessorising a rectangular face is all about softening the bone structure with rounded ornaments. Women with rectangular faces should look for earrings that add some curves. Look for wide circles, teardrops and curves. Avoid shapes that are wide and have strong lines and corners. Keep on the lookout for hoops, elongated and dangling pieces.

Celebrities that have rectangular face Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashlee Simpson, Elle Macpherson and Sarah Jessica Parker.

DIAMOND

Women blessed with a diamond-shaped face are all about statement cheekbones. They often have a small forehead and a sharp chin with high cheekbones which accentuate their facial features. Additionally, diamond-shaped faces have a lot of adversity making most earring types compliment their faces. Look for earrings that have wide-bottom chandeliers and circle curves.

Celebrities with a diamond face include J Lo and Beyonce.

HEART

A heart-shaped face typically has a broad forehead with a sharp chin. To balance a heart-shaped face, look for earrings that have elongated curves. Styles such as dangles, chandeliers, and teardrops are your best bet.

Celebrity females with such traits include Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson.
