Choosing earrings according to face shape

Generally speaking, the wider your face (or your cheek!) is, the more you can wear imposing curls, which will attract the lights and the eyes, without competing with your beautiful eyes. Jewelry is used to attract or divert attention, formidable weapons! We give you some ideas.


### Cute little face
Do you want small curls, so you don't get lost? It's from the 90s! In the minimalist trend, the 90s gave pride of place to clean and simple designs, geometric shapes and clean lines.

# # # V-shaped or heart-shaped face (triangular)
For a v-shaped or heart-shaped face, where the forehead is wider than the chin, you can opt for earrings that visually widen the lower part of the face. Dangling curls, especially those that widen towards the bottom, are perfect.

# # # Round face
Round faces benefit from elongated or angled earrings that add length and slim the face. Avoid overly voluminous curls that accentuate roundness. Opt for curls 4 to 6 cm long. Dig into the 70s! Although '70s earrings weren't as statement-making as those of the '80s, they were often medium to large in size, with a tendency toward length rather than width.

You can also do the opposite:

# # # Square or angular face
To soften the angular features of a square face, choose rounded or drop-shaped earrings. Dangling or medium-sized curls (around 3-5 cm) are ideal for softening the angles of the face. The 80s are made for you to go shine!

# # # Long face
Long faces go well with wider, shorter earrings, which create the impression of width. The towering curls of 5 to 6 cm can balance the length of the face. Go dig into the 80s! The earrings were often large and showy. From huge hoop earrings to massive dangling curls, the trend was toward extravagance. What a joy to search in these treasures!

# # # Oval face

Oval faces are the most versatile and can wear almost any shape of earring. Experiment with various styles, from small curls of 2 cm to large dangles of 5 cm and more!
