In general, there are five types of face shapes: oval-shaped, round-shaped, square-shaped, heart-shaped, and diamond-shaped.
Some types of earrings better suit some face shapes than others. So, by choosing the right earrings for your type of face shape, you can accentuate your facial features and look your best.
Round faces, as you would expect, refer to faces that are circular.
The best type of earrings for a round face is drop earrings as they will help to elongate your face instead of widening it.
With a pair of drop earrings, your face can look both longer and slimmer.
All kinds of long and slender drop earrings are ideal, but tassel earrings are the best for creating balance and giving your face the illusive appearance of additional length.
Avoid chunky discs if you have a round face, as they will make your face look even rounder.
An oval face means having a longer face with a soft jaw and broad cheekbones. The likes of Bella Hadid and Beyoncé have oval faces.

If you have an oval face, you’re lucky, as it’s the easiest face shape to pair earrings with.
Almost any kind of earrings will be compatible with your face’s shape and features, whether you opt for danglers or studs.
However, you should probably avoid earrings with excessive lengths as they can sometimes make your face look longer than it is.
Hoops, small drops, huggies, and studs are your best options for emphasizing your face’s beautiful oval shape.
Square faces are characterized by strong angles. Your forehead and jawline will have a similar width.
Because square faces are sharp, the right pair of earrings can help to soften your features.
The best earrings to go for are hoop earrings. Round earrings of medium to large size, or oval earrings, can help to soften your angular features.
You should stay away from square-shaped earrings as they can accentuate your features’ sharpness.
A heart-shaped face refers to a face that has a wider forehead than the cheeks. The lower half of the face narrows to the jaw. People with heart-shaped faces tend to have eye-catching features like prominent cheekbones.
By wearing the right pair of earrings, you can show off your best facial features more and reduce sharp features like your chin.
The best earrings to wear if you have a heart-shaped face are ones that are slim at the top and wide at the bottom.
Whether you opt for pear-cut Ruby earrings, emerald earrings, or diamond earrings, teardrop or chandelier earrings are your best option if you have a heart-shaped face.
If you have a diamond-shaped face, which refers to having a narrow forehead and chin and angular features, you can balance your face by wearing a pair of stud earrings.
Choose studs that sit close to your ears. Your strong features will then be the star of the show while your subtle earrings will help to accentuate them.
So, there you have it. Whether you have an oval, round, square, heart, or diamond-shaped face, you now know which types of earrings will balance your face and accentuate your facial features.
And now that you know what earring shapes to go for, you can have fun shopping for ones that suit your style and taste.
For instance, ruby red suits some people better than others while some women prefer the deep greenness of emerald or the beautiful blue of aquamarine or blue sapphire.
