Jennifer Lopez once said, “Women should never go without earrings. Passing them on is an opportunity missed”! A pair of earrings and its impact can hardly be overstated. According to fashion experts, building a high fashion wardrobe starts with selecting a perfect pair of earrings as these can actually make or break your look. Finding the ‘holy pair’ that sings melodies with your face and which accentuates your natural beauty, takes some thought. While choosing, there is a lot more to it than just getting hold of a little something shiny. Ladies, it all comes down to 3 golden commandments! So sit back with your cup of coffee and read on through this guide to get all the secrets...


The shape of your face matters

Did you ever wonder why a pair of earrings looked good on your friend but not so good on you? It might have been because she has a different face than yours. Believe it or not, the shape of the face is a very important criteria to consider when you go earring shopping. To help you find a great pair, I will be letting you in on the common face shapes and the kind of earrings which suit them the best!

Here are 6 main shapes of beautiful faces! :)

The Oval

You have an oval face if you have a forehead that is as wide as the cheekbones which slightly tapers at the bottom. It is a highly versatile shape as any kind of earrings only accentuate it. That said, the earrings that best flatter an oval are dangle ones which start out as long and thin and then widen out at the bottom. For example Ahir Silver Earrings will look good on oval face.

The Long

The long face can be described as a slightly elongated oval. Usually short stud earrings or smaller earrings with unique designs or patterns bring out the best out of this face as they balance out the long shape beautifully. The Harappa hexa unicorn silver earrings are a great example which you can check out here.

The Round

These are slightly chubbier or have wide cheekbones which gives them a spherical appearance. Making such a face appear thinner and more balanced is what you should aim for if you have this characteristic shape. Women with round faces should ideally opt for earrings that are long and tapering, which cut through the round shape. For example the Harappa bhasha silver earrings are a perfect match.

The Heart

This unique shape is identified by a forehead that is wider than the cheekbones which are narrower. The shape eventually narrows down to the chin. Bigger earrings with shapes which have curves, twists etc look beautiful on heart shaped faces. A stunning example of such are the Tarang silver earrings.

The Square

This type is identified by a forehead that is as wide as the cheekbones. As opposed to the heart shape, the square shape does not narrow down to the chin which gives the face a squarish appearance. Hoop earrings as well as long earrings which reach upto the jaw lines appear striking along with this face type, are the Arnica Loop silver earrings.

The Diamond

The diamond shape is characterised by wide cheekbones and a narrow forehead and chin. Long earrings that have design details at the lower end can help balance out the narrow chin area and add beauty to the face. The best pair to go for would look a little Curled Vines silver earrings like these.
