Buying jewellery online can overwhelming at times, not least because you can’t try pieces on in person to figure out what suits you best. However, selecting styles that most flatter your face shape can be a useful way of narrowing down the options. If you’re struggling to know which earrings will work for you then read on for some handy tips on how to choose the right pair…
If the length and width of your face are broadly the same and your hairline and jawline are subtly rounded then you have a round face.
These are definitely statement pieces, but because they’re made from square section Ecosilver wire, they’re really light and comfortable to wear, despite their size.
Square or rectangle face
If you have a strong jawline and a hairline that goes straight across your forehead then you’re probably a square or rectangle face shape.
A simple hoop style can work really well to soften the angles of your face. Try the Callisto Hoop Eararings, a punky twist on a classic design, or the Large Luna Hoop Earrings which have a little detachable charm so that you can wear them as a plain pair too.
If you're after something simple, but beautiful for everyday, you can't go wrong with the Parallel Hoop Earrings which are so comfortable to wear that you'll hardly know you've got them in.
If your face is longer than it is wide (with the cheeks as the widest part), then you have an oval face.
Heart or inverted triangle
If your forehead is wider than your jawline and your face tapers down to a narrow point, you are a heart or inverted triangle shape (Reece Witherspoon is the classic heart shape)
Simple stud earrings such as the Mini Meteorite Stud Earrings and the Mini Orbit Hoops are a fantastic choice for everyday wear. Or, for something a little bit dressier try the Small teardrop earrings or the Triangle/rectangle earrings both of which will flatter by balancing out the space next to your jaw.
