The Best Earrings for your Face Shape
Find out which type of earrings are the best for your face shape.
A pair of diamond earrings are a must have for everyone's jewellery box. Earrings are the perfect accessory if you want to complement your natural beauty. When you wear the right earrings, you'll find that they flatter your beautiful features and really define them. To make sure you're showing off your pure beauty we've put together a guide of the best earrings to suit your facial shape.
How do I find out my face shape?
Finding out the natural shape of your face is super easy. Simply stand in front of a mirror and trace the outline of your face with some lipstick. (Don't forget to wash off the outline before you head out.)
Earrings for an Oval Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: Your face narrows slightly to a rounded chin and your forehead isn't too wide. The line from your forehead blends with the natural contour of your high cheekbones, and your face tapers slightly to a rounded chin.
Earrings: You'll want a pair of earrings that enhance and complement your sharp cheekbones. Oval cut drop earrings or marquise shaped drop earrings will highlight your striking characteristics, bringing the most out of your face shape. An oval face shape is incredibly versatile so experiment with different types of drop earrings and longer shapes, such as marquise cut diamond studs. Check out these stunning Marquise Halo Diamond Studs below.
Celebrities: Julianne Moore, Beyonce Knowles, Tina Fey, Jamie Lee Curtis and Jessica Alba.
Earrings for a Square Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: Your forehead, cheeks and jawline all have a similar width - you've got a very broad jawline and your face is widest at its cheekbones.
Earrings: A pair of medium to long length statement drop earrings will elongate your face - trust us when we say that they will look amazing. Large diamond hoops or dangly earrings with angular/ rounded edges (such as marquise cut drop earrings) will also draw attention to the centre of your face and help soften your stronger features. We're in love with this stunning pair of 0.75 Carat Round Diamond Hoops.
Celebrities: Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Lucy Liu, Leighton Meester and Olivia Wilde.
Earrings for a Round Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: Your face has an overall circular form with round cheeks. Your facial features are closer to your ears rather than the top and bottom of your head.
Earrings: Diamond and gemstone drop earrings will elongate your face and enhance your natural features. Pear, marquise or Oval Cut Emerald and Diamond studs look very becoming on people with rounded face shapes, as the soft edges and longer lines complement the natural curves of your face.
Celebrities: Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cameron Diaz and Adele.
Earrings for a Heart Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: Your face narrows towards your chin, and your forehead is wider than your cheeks, mimicking a heart shape.
Earrings: Drop earrings that are wider at the bottom, or pear shaped diamond studs will help to balance the natural triangle shape of your face. Oval drop earrings have softer edges that mimic the smooth curves of your face, complementing your natural beauty.
Celebrities: Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, Halle Berry and Eva Longoria.
Earrings for an Oblong Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: The most defining feature of your face is the length - there's not as much emphasis on the width of your forehead or cheeks.
Earrings: Bold statement drop earrings will look amazing against your facial shape and really bring out your features. If you want a more minimalist look try a pair of short dangly earrings, small diamond hoops or some round cut diamond studs - this style earring will draw the eye across your face horizontally.
Celebrities: Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Meryl Streep, Raquel Welch and Sanaa Lathan.
Earrings for a Diamond Face Shape
Facial Characteristics: Your cheekbones are wider than your forehead and chin, giving a diamond-esque shape to your face.
Earrings: Princess, Marquise, Oval and Emerald Cut Studs will balance your natural beauty. Round Diamond Drop Earrings with softer edges and straight lines will flatter your facial shape and enhance your features. Opt for more delicate shapes and you'll shine!
Celebrities: Shilpa Shetty, Linda Evangelista, Tyra Banks, Viola Davis, Katherine Hepburn and Sophia Lore
