Ever wondered why those pairs of beautiful and highly expensive luxury earrings worn on those gorgeous outfits don’t feel right?
  
It is because a number of people assume that their outfit should determine the kind of earrings they wear. Some women even have the notion that their hairstyle should determine the earrings they wear.
  
While these notions are not completely out of place, they are not the primary consideration in choosing a fitting pair of earrings. What then is? Your face shape!
  


The primary function of earrings is to perfectly highlight your face, and due to the fact that humans are created with different face shapes, a pair of earrings that works for someone with an oval face shape may not work for a round face shape.

Types of Face Shape
There are five basic human face shapes:

. Oval Face shape
. Round Face shape
. Square Face shape
. Diamond Face Shape
. Heart Face Shape

It wouldn’t be out of place to take another look in the mirror to confirm where your face shape belongs as this would help you procure an appropriate set of earrings going forward.

Oval face – This is carved with high foreheads and overall outstretched face features. Interestingly, this face shape allows you to wear varieties of earrings designs except those that are too long and dangling as this can make the already long face shape look longer. Keeping it short and simple would give your face a perfect look.

Round Face – This is self-descriptive – simply round, and the perfect earrings are drop-earrings, large stud earrings, angular earrings and square earrings. These types of earrings would keep your face briefly intact and beautiful without further widening it as circular earrings would.

Square Face – This shape comes with a bold jawline all the way to the cheekbones and chin with little or no curves. It is a mixture of wide and long, which makes it necessary to choose appropriate earrings that wouldn’t misplace your beauty such as those with sharp edges. Rather, go for threader earrings, long drop with rounded designs.

Diamond Face  – This comes with a narrow forehead, wide cheekbones that sit high, and small chin, so you don’t want long or dangling earrings. Pearls, small stud earrings and small hoop earrings are your best bets. This sets balance and perfect your beautiful face shape.

Heart Face – This shape is similar to a round face but comes with a larger and wider forehead. Then the face gets more angled towards the chin, finishing into a point. Long earring designs will highlight the jawline perfectly.
