An earring is a piece of jewellery attached to the ear via  piercing in the earlobe or another external part of the ear. Earrings are worn by both sexes, although more common among women and have been used by different civilizations in different times.

Accessorizing an outfit is no easy feat as it plays an essential role to enhance your look. When shopping for earrings, remember that the suggested style for each face shape may not work for some individuals. So here are six face types along with the type of earrings that suit them.

The Best Earrings for Oval Faces
Women with oval-shaped faces look good in almost every style of earrings. However, they can create a particularly striking look by wearing oval-shaped dangling earrings and teardrop earrings. These earrings will draw attention to the face’s elegant shape.

The Best Earrings for Round Faces
Women with round faces can aim to elongate their faces and minimize a puffy appearance by choosing teardrop and dangle earrings. Look for those pieces that have long, angular designs as opposed to rounded designs. Most women with round faces should avoid dangling circular discs as these can make the face look wider.

The Best Earrings for Heart-Shaped Faces
When choosing earrings for heart-shaped faces, look for pieces with elongated lines and curves. Pieces with elongated curves will help to balance out the face and will draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones and jawline. Women with heart-shaped faces look particularly good in dangle, teardrop and chandelier earrings. Choose chandelier earrings in diamond shapes to add an interesting contrast to the face.

The Best Earrings for Square Faces
Women with square faces should choose earrings with rounded designs that soften the cheekbones and jawline. The best choices are elongated, dangling pieces and hoop earrings. Those women who would like to add extra drama to their look can choose oversized hoops that brush the jaw line.

The Best Earrings for Narrow Faces
Pearl earrings are ideal for narrow faces as they add softness and minimize length. Clustered pearl earrings that dangle far below the earlobe are a particularly good choice.

The Best Earrings for Diamond-Shaped Faces
Women with diamond-shaped faces should look for earrings with long, elegant curves. Both dangle and hoop styles accentuate this type of face.

Earrings are an inexpensive, easy-to-wear accessory that any woman can use to finish off her outfits. While buying earrings is largely a matter of personal style, women who want to make the most of this accessory should choose earring styles that are suited to their face shapes.
