Pearl, Hoop, Chandelier, or Drip Earrings? How to Choose the Right Jewellery for Your Face Shape

From hoop to drip earrings: if you want to choose a style that accentuates your best facial features, this article will show you how.

The right pair of earrings can add an elegant finishing touch to any outfit, whether you’re dressed up for a special occasion or sporting your favourite casual look. When choosing earrings, most women make a choice based on the overall style, material and colour of the jewellery itself. Whilst these tactics are great for making sure that you find a pair of earrings that you like, it’s also important to make sure that your new pair of earrings suit you, too. Knowing which earrings are the best for your face shape will ensure that your jewellery is a perfect match.

Oval Faces

Women with an oval face shape are often lucky enough to look great in any type of earring. However, if you’re looking for a particularly striking and flattering style, oval shaped drop or drip earrings make for the best match.

Round Faces

Women with rounder faces can aim to elongate their faces through the clever use of wearing earrings. Teardrop, drip earrings and dangle earrings can create an illusion of a longer face shape, and also minimise a putty appearance. However, avoid dangling circular disc earrings as these can actually make your face look rounder!

Heart-Shaped Faces

If your face is heart-shaped, the best types of earrings to choose are pieces which have elongated lines and curves. Drip earrings are a good choice, as are chandelier earrings. Pieces which have elongated curves help to balance out the face by drawing attention to your eyes, jaw line and cheek bones.

Square Faces

If your face is a square shape, earrings with rounded designs will soften your cheekbones and jaw line. The best types of earrings to go for are hoop earrings or pieces which are elongated and dangling. If you’re aiming for a dramatic look, choose oversized hoops which brush the jaw line, making your face appear smaller and softer.

Narrow Faces

If your face is quite narrow, pearl earrings are an ideal choice to accentuate your best features. Dangle, clustered pearl earrings are an especially good choice for this facial shape, as they add softness and minimise the length of the face. Pieces which have elongated curves are ideal as they add softness whilst accentuating your cheekbones.
