How To Choose Jewelry That Perfectly Complements Your Face Structure

Picking out jewelry that goes perfectly with your bridal dress is a tricky part that you spend months on. The current jewelry trend emphasizes not just on the design but on individuality as well, therefore we all need to pay attention to our features and face structures in order to find the perfect pieces. And how do you know your face type? Let us guide you through the process and make this difficult journey a relatively easier one.

Know Your Face Shape!

Each person has roughly one of these six face shapes: oval, round, square, heart, pear or rectangular. You can figure out which category your face falls into by following these easy steps.

-Pull your hair back and away from your face

-Draw the outline of your face in the mirror with an erasable marker or simply ask someone to take a picture of you facing straight into the camera with your hairline clearly visible.

-Print the photograph and trace the outline.

-Compare and match the outline of your face with the following shapes. Ignore your features during the process.

1. Round Faces

Round faces are roughly as wide as they are long. The outline of the round face is curved with a rounded jawline. If you are a bride-to-be with a relatively round face, then you should go for the kind of bridal jewelry that draws attention away from the roundness of your face and accentuates your eyes and other facial features.

Jewelry Advice:

 Go for angular jewelry that contrasts the roundness of your face. Long dangling earrings that extend below the chin will create an illusion of a longer face, geometric shapes such as rectangles, trapezoids and squares will also complement your face shape. Necklaces such as the traditional raani haar or sat lara or those that create a V-shape are also the perfect match for you.


2. Oval Face

An oval face is wide at the forehead and slightly longer than it is wide, with a gently curved chin. This shape makes it possible for you to be versatile when it comes to jewelry. Which means that just about any kind will look perfectly good!

Jewelry Advice

The most flattering jewelry styles for an oval face shape are the ones that do not make your face seem elongated. For earrings hoops, chandeliers, teardrops and other soft shapes that end just above the chin are perfect. Chokers and short necklaces will flatter you the most!


3. Heart-Shaped Faces

A heart-shaped face is the widest at the forehead and cheeks and gently narrows down to a sharper chin.

Jewelry Advice

Teardrop or triangular earrings create an illusion of a wider jawline and are perfect for heart-shaped faces. Hoops, curves and other space-filling designs for earrings, chokers, princess and collar length necklaces are ideal.

4. Rectangular Faces

Short, chunky necklaces that sit high on the neck are perfect for this face type. Statement studs, short drops and button earrings give the illusion of a wider face.

Jewelry Advice

Rectangular faces are somewhat similar to oval faces, only slightly longer. Jewelry that draws attentions away from the length and adds width is the most flattering jewelry for this face type.

5. Pear-Shaped Faces

Also referred to as triangular faces, pear-shaped faces have opposite proportions to heart-shaped faces. The forehead is the narrowest part of this face type while the jawline is comparatively wider.

Jewelry Advice

Add width to your cheekbones and upper areas by going for narrow drop earrings. Short length necklaces with gentle curves will perfectly complement this face shape.

6. Square Shaped Faces

Square face has the same width from forehead, cheeks and all the way down to the jawline. The width is similar as the height and straight outlines of the face fall into an angular jaw.

Jewelry Advice

Soften your jawline with curved and long necklaces having large components that draw the attention away from your neckline. Large hoops, narrow chandeliers and long drop shapes are perfect for square shaped faces.

These are all the face shapes and the jewelry types that will suit them best! We at hope that you find the perfect set of jewels for you before your big day arrives!
