1. Oval Face

People who have oval faces usually have foreheads that are slightly wider than their chins. They also have a well-rounded jawline to the chin. If you have an oval-shaped face, you are lucky because this face shape is very adaptable to almost any type of earrings.

Wearing long or teardrop earrings can balance your contours. On the other hand, studs, pearls, and rounded earrings can broaden and accentuate your facial structure. Therefore, for those who have an oval face shape, go all out and don’t be afraid to create a versatile jewelry wardrobe.

2. Square Face

Those who have square-shaped faces have similar forehead and jawline width. Their chins are either square or flat, and their foreheads are straight along the hairline. If you have a square face shape, the best type of earrings for you are hoop earrings and rounded earrings. These can help balance out the angels on your face.

You need to avoid wearing square earrings because they can add more width to your face. Also, earrings with angular or rounded edges can bring attention to your earrings and help soften the natural angles of your face.

3. Round Face

People who have round faces have cheeks with a rounder shape. Their faces take an overall circular form, and more of the face is near the ears than toward the top and bottom of the head. The cheekbones are wide, and the chin line is round. If you have a round face, drop earrings or earrings that are well tapered are perfect for you, as they can help elongate your face and bring balance to it. In addition, you can also wear chandelier earrings, as they can make your face more streamlined.

For round face shapes, avoid wearing round or disc earrings. These types of earrings can only make your face look even rounder.

4. Diamond Face

People with diamond faces have cheekbones wider than their foreheads and chins. If you have a diamond face, you are also lucky because all kinds of earring studs work well for your face shape. You can also wear long earrings that stop just above your chin. This can add more to your natural look. A combination of straight lines and curves are also flattering, and as well as earrings with delicate drops.

5. Long Face or Narrow Face

People who have long or narrow face has a narrow face width but is lengthy. If you have a long or narrow face, the perfect kinds of earrings for you are dangle earrings that are well-rounded at the bottom. Choose earrings that can add more curves and roundness to your face. In addition, all kinds of studs also look elegant for this face shape.

If you have a long or narrow face shape, do not wear slim and super long earrings. It’s because they can only further emphasize the length of your face.

6. Heart Shape

Those who have heart-shaped faces have foreheads wider than the width of their jawlines. Their chins are more pointed, and the jawline tapers down to the chin. If you have a heart-shaped face, you can wear dangling earrings that are rounded at the bottom. These earrings can help reduce the angles around your chine and make it look more rounded. You can also wear teardrop earrings and chandelier earrings.
