Have you ever wondered, why some jewelry looks good on others but when you try it, it doesn't suit you as much as would like to? This is because of your unique face shape. It is really important to know the shape of your face in order to determine which jewelry will be best suited for you whenever you choose your jewelry while shopping. If you do not know what is your face shape, then refer to the below image.

1. Oval Shaped Face

Women with Oval face shapes are the Lucky ones as all kind of jewelry looks good on them as long as the designs are proportionate to the face.

2. Square Shaped Face

MultiLayered Earrings or Oversized hoops that brush against the jaw are perfect to soften the strong jawline. Choose jewelry that adds length and narrows the width of the face. Avoid earrings that are too wide as they end up highlighting the sharp corners of your face.

Long earrings which are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom will try to cut your jawline and elongate your neck.

3. Round Shaped Face

If you have a round face you should go for something that can add some angular definition to your face. Long dangle earrings or chandeliers are perfect which start narrow at the top and wider at the bottom. Along with being elegant they also give the illusion of a longer and slimmer face. The same principle applies to necklaces. Long and V-shaped necklaces will give you a balanced look. Avoid choker, and wide accessories as they can end up exaggerating the roundness of your face.

Hoop earrings and longer earrings with curved shapes look great on a diamond-shaped face as they help to soften the jawline.

Choker, collar, and princess lengths are ideal (especially if you have a long neck).
