Celebrate Your Unique Beauty: How to Choose Jewelry for Your Face Shape

When it comes to choosing jewelry, it's important to consider the shape of your face to create a harmonious balance. Here are some general guidelines for selecting jewelry for different face shapes:

Oval Face

An oval face shape is characterized by balanced proportions and slightly rounded contours. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin, and the face tapers slightly towards the chin.

  • Oval faces are versatile and can wear almost any type of jewelry.
  • Hoop earrings, dangly earrings, and studs all complement the balanced proportions of an oval face.
  • Necklaces of various lengths, including chokers and longer pendant necklaces, work well.

Round Face

round face shape

A round face shape is characterized by equal width and length, with soft and curved lines. The cheeks are typically full, and the face lacks prominent angles.

  • To add angles and lengthen the face, choose jewelry with vertical or angular lines.
  • Long, dangle or drop earrings help create the illusion of a longer face.
  • Angular and geometric-shaped earrings and necklaces can add definition.
  • Avoid round-shaped or button-like earrings, as they can emphasize roundness.

Square Face

A square face shape is characterized by a strong and angular jawline. The width of the forehead, cheekbones, and jawline is relatively equal, creating a square appearance.

  • Soften the angles of a square face with curved or rounded jewelry.
  • Hoop earrings and circular-shaped earrings can help soften the jawline.
  • Teardrop or oval-shaped earrings provide a flattering contrast to the square shape.
  • Delicate and curved necklaces can balance the strong jawline.

Heart-Shaped and Reverse Triangle Face

A heart-shaped face has a broader forehead and a narrower jawline and chin. The face tapers down to a pointy or V-shaped chin, resembling the shape of a heart. The reverse triangle is having the same chin but the forehead is having a straight line. The rules for the jewels are the same for this type of face.

  • Balance the wider forehead with jewelry that draws attention downward.
  • A chandelier or teardrop earring can help create a balanced look that ends just above the chin.
  • Short curved necklaces and choker, collars are ideal
  • Avoid small posts and any long, narrow earring styles.

    Diamond Face

    A diamond face shape is characterized by a narrow forehead and jawline, with the widest point located at the cheekbones. The chin may be slightly pointed.

    • Complement the diamond-shaped face by adding width at the forehead and chin.
    • Triangular or pear-shaped earrings can balance the face.
    • Almost any shape or style of the necklace will go well.
    • Avoid overly long and narrow earrings, as they can exaggerate the face shape.

      Oblong/Rectangular Face

      An oblong or rectangular face shape is characterized by a long and narrow shape. The forehead, cheekbones, and jawline have similar widths, and the face may have straighter sides.

      • Add width and create the illusion of a shorter face with horizontal or curved jewelry.
      • Wide and round earrings, such as hoops or clusters, can add width to the face.
      • Shorter necklaces or collars can help create the appearance of a shorter face.
      • Avoid long, thin, and vertical jewelry, as it can further elongate the face.

      Triangle/Pear-Shaped Face

      A triangle-shaped face has a wider jawline and a narrower forehead. The jawline is often more prominent than the cheekbones, creating a triangular appearance.

      • Balance the wider jawline by drawing attention upward and adding width at the forehead.
      • Earrings with detailing or volume at the top, such as studs and cuffs can help create balance.
      • Necklaces with volume at the upper part can draw attention upward.
      • Avoid wide or heavy jewelry around the jawline.

        Remember, these guidelines are general recommendations, and personal style and preference should also play a role in selecting jewelry. Ultimately, wear what makes you feel confident and showcases your unique beauty.
