The next step you need to consider is to choose jewelry that accentuates your look. To do this, understand your facial shape and neckline. A necklace should complement the neckline of your clothing. Your earrings should highlight your facial advantage and so on.

If you have a round face, try as much as you can to stay away from round /button earrings.   Instead, go for a vertical/dangling earring that will not emphasize the fullness of your face.


Avoid necklace styles like chokers and anything that goes up the neck. Longer necklaces seem to add length to the face.

All jewelry types except long shoulder-grazing earrings best suit a person with the oval face.

For the heart-shaped face, you are thinner by the chin and earrings that can widen out your chin such as triangular shapes or horizontal lines of hoops, teardrops, curves, and other dangling, space-filling designs.

For the neck, chokers, collar and princes’s lengths, neck wires and short bib-style neckpieces are ideal necklaces are also advisable.


If your faces long or rectangular shaped try jewelry that softening your jaw and camouflages your facial length such as large stud earrings and wide chandeliers. Princess, matinee, opera and rope length neckpieces should make the neck adorable.


These are just suggestions for choosing pieces of jewelry. At the end of the day, wear pieces of jewelry that you like and that you feel confident wearing.
