How to Choose the Right Earrings for your Face Shape

I love to make jewelry; earrings included.
But I have to admit not every style is right for every Woman.
Depending on your face shape some earrings types are better than others.
The types of earrings you wear should depend on your FACE shape.

The four basic shapes are highlighted below.

What is a square-shaped face?
- sides of your face will be straight
- face will be nearly as wide as it is long
- your jawline will be defined, with only a minimum curve 
                                                                      - strong jawline

Best EARRINGS for square-shaped face
- earrings with rounded designs
- elongated earrings, especially under the chin line
- dangling earrings
- hoop earrings

These styles are considered excellent because they add a softness to the facial angles

*avoid very wide, bulky, square earrings

What is a round-shaped face? 
-  cheekbones are the widest part of your face
- cheekbones do not taper down to the chin
- jaw is curved
Round shaped face is similar to square shaped face, except with softer angles

Best EARRINGS for round-shaped face
- elongated style, especially long earrings under the chin line
- teardrop earrings
- dangle earrings
- chandelier earrings
- choose earrings with a thin to a medium width

These styles are considered excellent to add length

*avoid hoops and studs and earrings with too much volume

What is an oval-shaped face?
- forehead is as wide as the cheekbones
- forehead is broader than the jawline
- face is slightly longer than wider
- rounded jawline

Best EARRINGS for oval-shaped face
- every style of earrings
- most shapes will suit oval-shaped earrings
- best earring shapes: teardrop and oval shaped

*Avoid too long earrings if you have a long nose

These best shapes are excellent because they accentuate the face's natural shape
and create a sense of symmetry or balance

What is a heart-shaped face?
- forehead is wider than the cheeks
- long pointed jaw line
- chin is the smallest point of the face
- similar to the oval-shape, but is narrower below cheekbones, and pointed at the chin with a wider forehead

Best EARRINGS for heart shaped face
- elongated curved earrings
- earrings wider at the bottom than the top
- teardrop 
- chandelier in diamond shape
- bohemian chic 

*Avoid earrings that are the same as your face shape (wide at the top and narrow at the bottom)
