Which earrings to choose according to your face shape

The earrings they are one of the most versatile pieces of jewelry, which nevertheless enhance your appearance and reflect your special style. Whether you choose handmade earrings, semi-precious stone earrings, or a more casual style like boho earrings, the important thing is that they match your face shape. Choosing the perfect earrings can be a not-so-easy process, especially if you're not sure which style suits your face shape. In this article, we suggest how to choose the perfect earrings based on your face shape.

Round face

In round faces there is a general balance between width and height. The goal here is to choose earrings that create the illusion of length, such as large silver earrings. In general, wear earrings that are longer than your earlobes, as they create a balance with the round line of your face. Silver hoop earrings are also a great choice. Instead of fully round hoops, choose oval hoops or hoops that are narrower at the bottom. Finally, dangle earrings with various details and angles add extra interest to a round face. Avoid round earrings and crosses as they can make your face look wider.

Square Face

For square-shaped faces, choose earrings that will soften and "round" the corners of your face. Teardrop earrings and curved earrings are great options. In addition, to match the earrings with the strong structure of your face, you can choose a pair of earrings with semi-precious stones, especially when they are dangling. These earrings will add a beautiful contrast as the colors of the stones will bring out the strong structure of the face. Finally, don't be afraid to try larger earring sizes, as these can create a balance with the angles of your face and soften it aesthetically. Avoid earrings with sharp angles or straight lines, as they can accentuate the angles of your face even more.

Face Shape Oval

The oval face shape is described by a slightly narrower area on the chin and wider on the cheeks and forehead. Earrings that focus on the lower part of the face, such as large hoops or long earrings, can create a striking balance. Big hoops, dangle earrings and studded earrings are the best choices for oval faces. You can also wear earrings that are proportionally large or small in relation to your face to enhance your features. Additionally, feel free to try earrings with geometric designs like triangles or squares to add dynamism and interest to your face shape. Avoid earrings that are too big or too small, as they can distract from the balance of the face.

Heart Shaped Face

Heart-shaped faces are characterized by a wider forehead, wider cheeks and a narrower chin. It is therefore ideal to choose earrings that bring balance between these features, so as a general rule of thumb is to choose earrings with elements that extend downwards. Handmade earrings, especially those that are pulley-shaped or have rounded details, can soften the angle of the chin. Stone earrings that have a slightly wider base are a safe choice, as are their boho counterparts. Large silver earrings, such as hoops or horseshoe-shaped earrings, ensure symmetry to the face. Avoid earrings with sharp angles or narrow shapes, as these can make your chin look more pronounced.

Diamond Face Shape

For diamond-shaped faces, it's important to choose earrings that soften and complement the angles of the face. Hoop earrings and dangle earrings are great choices for this face shape. On oblong faces, embossed dangle earrings, with their detailed curves, can add balance, giving the impression of a rounder face. Alternatively, a pair of boho earrings with rounded details can provide a different touch, mixing whimsy and an understated feel. Avoid earrings that are too narrow or too long, as they can make your face look more angular.

For oval faces, large silver earrings and hoops can bring out the balance of your features. Especially the silver hoop earrings, with their simple design, emphasize your natural beauty. Oval faces are characterized by wider cheeks, but with a smaller chin. Handmade earrings can look stunning on an oval face, especially if they have a unique or eccentric shape that adds interest to the look. Boho earrings can give a more unruly and whimsical feel, while large silver hoops or studded earrings can add a dose of drama.
