How to Choose the Perfect Earrings for Your Face Shape

How to Choose the Perfect Earrings for Your Face Shape

I love earrings in all shapes and sizes but... I am always drawn to dangly chandelier style earrings. Perhaps, subconsciously I know that this is the style of earrings that suits my face shape. 

In the hopes of being helpful on your search for your next perfect earrings or to help those looking to gift earrings to a special person; I have put together this quick guide on which earrings complement each face shape the best. 

Please let me know in the comments if you enjoyed this guide or found it helpful and don't forget to let me know: Which earrings style is your favorite! 



Oval shaped faces are best complemented by earrings such as wide chandeliers, earrings that widen at the lower part, teardrop shaped earrings and large studs are my recommendations.  

Diamond shaped faces usually have high cheekbones, eyes are in line with the widest part of the face and the forehead mirrors the chin's width. Earrings that are wider at the bottom or linear dangles are ideal as they balance the facial features the best. 

Square shaped faces do not narrow much from the cheekbones to the forehead or to the jawline. Earrings with rounded edges tend to complement and soften the face's natural angles. 


Heart shaped faces feature a wider forehead than the cheekbones and a sharper chin. Dangles, chandeliers and teardrop earrings will help balance out the shape of the face. 

Round shaped are best complemented by long earrings (ideally earrings that dangle lower than the chin), that help create an illusion of length.
