When choosing a new piece of handcrafted jewellery you want to know that your new purchase will make you look and feel your best.
Whether you pick silver or gold earrings, drop, hoop or small stud earrings, they have the power to transform your image. By selecting the best pair of earrings, they will accentuate the facial features that you are most proud of. And the most effective way to do this is by picking earrings for your face shape.
Let’s determine what face shape you have and find your perfect match.
The Best Earrings for a Square Face Shape
Square face shapes are defined by a chiselled jawline whilst your forehead, cheekbones and jaw are the same widths. In terms of celebrities, Jennifer Anniston, Zoé Kravitz and Margot Robbie have typical square face shapes.
We recommend balancing the angles of a square face shape with circular earring designs. Experiment with different sizes of hoop earrings – you can work small ‘huggies’ that wrap snugly around your lobe or max out your style with ‘maxi’ hoops.
You can also wear elegant drop earrings with rounded shapes. Consider a pair of gold earrings garnished with a pearl or beadwork.
The Best Earrings for an Oval Face
Oval face shapes are known for their elegant high foreheads, elongated features and foreheads that are as wide as the cheekbones. Elle McPherson, Rihanna and Jessica Alba are your style examples.
The great thing about having an oval face is that you can wear most earrings, lucky you! We would only advise not wearing very long drop earrings and they can tug at your features. Try a pair of geometric drop earrings, such as these green onyx earrings, that graze your neck.
The Best Earrings for a Round Face
If you have a round face then the widest part is across your cheekbones, like Mila Kunis, Emma Stone and Tatyana Ali.
As with oval faces, geometric shapes work very well with a round face. However, the difference is that you can add some extra length to your drop earrings. These will lengthen your features whilst complementing your gentle features.
The Best Earrings for a Heart-shaped Face
If you have a pointed chin and a forehead that is wider than your cheeks then you have a heart-shaped face. Look to Halle Berry, Scarlett Johanson and Reese Witherspoon for your inspiration!
Earrings with elongated shapes such as teardrops will flatter your face shape and draw attention to your marvellous cheekbones. Browse your local handcrafted jewellery store to find a unique design that you’ll wear again and again.
The Best Earrings for all Face Shapes
Of course, there are some special types of earring that suit all face shapes. Regardless of your face shape, you can never go wrong with a pair of small stud earrings. Choose a pair with your favourite gemstone or with a motif that says something about your personality and you’re all set!
Stud earrings are also a wonderful choice of gift for your loved ones.
