The round face is as wide as it is long, with the greatest width falling at the cheekbones.
Round faces are naturally youthful and soft and are ideal for wearing long, vertical styles--especially dangles, drops, narrow chandeliers and ear threads. Keep in mind that opposites attract for this face shape and choose rectangles, trapezoids and other long, vertically angular designs. Any style that draws attention to a strong vertical line will be flattering for a round face.
The oval shaped face has a forehead that is the same width as the cheeks and then narrows to the chin.
Oval faces can wear almost any shape or style of earring, if the designs are in proportion to your face. Avoid styles that are overly long, as they will lengthen the oval face. Echo the oval face with hoops, hoops in circles, chandeliers and other soft, curving designs using open link chain, teardrops and go-gos--or dramatically set off the oval face with triangle-shaped earrings.
The heart shaped face has a forehead that is wider than the cheeks and narrows to the chin.
With a distinctive shape and killer cheekbones, heart-shaped faces require earrings with more detailing at the bottom than at the top. This face needs jewelry that adds width at the level of the chin, so use horizontal lines of hoops, teardrops, curves, triangles and other dangling space-filling designs. Avoid small posts and any long narrow earring styles.
The diamond shaped face has a forehead and chin that are both narrower than the cheekbones.
Diamond-shaped faces can wear almost any shape or style of earring, if the designs are in proportion to the face. Add width to a pointy jaw line with dangling earrings with teardrops, pear-shaped or triangle drops. Echo the diamond-shaped face with dramatic and angular styles using triangles or soften the look of the diamond-shaped face with hoops.
The square shaped face has a forehead, jawline and chin are about the same width.
The square face is ideal for wearing large oval hoops, long drop and narrow chandelier earrings. Keep in mind that opposites attract for this face shape and choose long narrow designs. This face needs jewelry that adds length and camouflages its width, so any styles that create an illusion of length will be flattering for a square face. Avoid short post (button) style and wide chandelier styles.
The rectangular shaped face is similar to the square shape, but is longer in overall length.
Thick or wide earrings with rounded edges like hoop earrings are a great choice.
Since the rectangular shaped face is naturally elongated with an angular jaw button, fan and round earrings are excellent choices to help widen your face. Keep in mind that opposites attract for this face shape and chose large rounds, curves, crescents and other wide, space-filling designs. This face needs jewelry that adds width and camouflages its length, so any styles that create an illusion of width will be flattering for an oblong/rectangular face.
