There are so many cute earrings to choose from! We hear this a lot at our Sherman Oaks artisan jewelry shop. But how do we make the right choice? How do we know what looks great on us without trying on dozens of pairs? To make the choice easier, we suggest you first identify your face shape. Because earrings are closest to the face and direct attention there, it makes sense to rock a pair of earrings that compliments, rather than conflicts, with your face shape.
IF you have round face, you should choose earrings that will elongate your face and will add a little angle to it. Avoid earrings with round shapes and small balls, instead bet on long, narrow earrings that draw the eye downward, not in circle. Square, oblong and rectangular earrings also suit well the round face shape.
It’s almost the perfect face shape, so don’t ruin it with wrong choice of earrings. Although you can afford to wear everything, choose earrings with soft shapes like balls, rings or not very large square or tear shaped earrings. Pendant earrings with two figures are good option if your hair is longer. For women with shorter hair pearl or diamond balls are the proper choice. Extremely long and thin earrings will make your face too long, so avoid wearing them.
For heart-shaped face are appropriate earrings that are wider at the bottom like teardrop-shaped or a pendant earrings, which resemble chandelier. Even circular, oval and pyramid-shaped earrings look well on the divine heart-shaped face, characterized by a wide forehead, stunning cheekbones and a tiny cherubic chin. The aim is the bottom of the earring to be wider, to balance the narrow face. If your face is heart-shaped, avoid wearing very short earrings.
If you have a square face, its angular forms can be softened with round earrings. For you will work well any figures with not very large angle: teardrop-shaped earrings, elongated earrings – drops, pendants and rings or earrings with curved edges. Avoid wearing square earrings or forms with large angles.
If you have an elongated face, the most appropriate for you are embossed earrings. The three-dimensional shape will add more fullness of the oblong face and will balance it well. You can wear round, square-shaped or triangular earrings, making sure that the triangle is with its wide side down. Avoid wearing flat or dangling earrings.
You should wear earrings that will soften the sharp corners of your face. Large earrings with oval shape or small round earrings are suitable for you. Figures with some curves at the bottom also work well. Just remember that they shouldn’t be very long.
