Select the Perfect Earrings for Your Face Shape
Have you ever wondered which types of earrings are the best for you?
Sometimes is hard to pick out earrings that fit your personal style and in the meantime match your physical appearance. That is why we would like to help you find the perfect earrings. First of all, you need to define your face shape there are four main categories: square, oval, almond (inverted triangle) and round.
The forehead, cheeks, and jaws are all about the same width on a square-shaped face. Women with square-shaped faces often have very strong jawlines.
Square shaped faces look particularly well in long earrings. Try long chain or in vertical and geometric shape. Earrings like teardrops, oval, heart-shaped or angular shapes such as rectangles can soften your face and add excitement because they create a vertical line to lengthen the square face.
You may want to avoid wearing very wide earrings.
See some examples and suggestions for earrings that would look good on a square face:
Oval-shaped faces feature foreheads that are as wide as the cheekbones. The face narrows from the cheeks to the chin, creating the oval shape.
Women with oval-shaped faces look good in almost every style of earrings if the designs are in proportion to her face. Echo the oval-shaped face by wearing soft, curving designs like oval, triangle-shaped, teardrop or chandelier. These types create a sense of symmetry and balance.
You may want to avoid styles that are overly long, as they will lengthen the oval face.

The almond-shaped face has a wide brow and narrow chin. The features within the face can be sharp and angular or soft and curved.
When choosing earrings for these face shapes, try to have the widest part of the earring closest to the chin. Types like horizontal lines of hoops, teardrops, curves, triangles and other dangling space-filling designs look very good on almond faces. Pieces with elongated curves will help to balance out the face and will draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones, and jawline.
You may want to avoid earrings and styles that are very narrow and long.

Also called circular faces, round faces are widest at the cheekbones. The round face is soft and curved, with an equal distance all around. The goal with a face like that is to add length.
The round face is ideal for wearing long, vertical like dangles, drops or narrow chandelier types. Keep in mind that opposites attract for this face shape and choose rectangles, trapezoids, and other long, vertically angular designs. Styles that create a strong vertical line will look wonderful on a round face.
You may want to avoid buttons and hoops.
