When it comes to accessorizing, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. What looks great on one person might not look so good on someone else. That said, certain types of jewelry tend to flatter different face shapes better than others.

When choosing the right jewelry to flatter your face shape, there are many factors to consider. But with a bit of guidance, you can easily find pieces that will enhance your features and make you look and feel your best.


Before diving into the different face shapes, you've got to break out the measuring tape and jot down the following numbers:

  • Face Length: Measure from the top of your hairline to the bottom of your chin.

  • Forehead Width: The distance across your forehead from hairline to hairline. Keep the measuring tape straight and flat against the curve; don't bend it.

  • Cheekbone Width: Begin by measuring your cheekbone's highest point to the other cheekbone. You should once again keep the measuring tape flat rather than curving it against your skin.

  • Jawline Width: Hold the measuring tape just below your ear and bring it down to the center of your chin, then multiply by two. In this scenario, you may bend the tape to rest against your skin.

If you don't have measuring tape, there are several obvious indicators to look for to figure out your face shape.


1.Triangle/Pear Face Shape

The triangular face shape, also called a pear face shape, features high cheekbones and a narrow jaw. In terms of measurements, the width of the forehead and cheekbones is longer, while the chin is narrow and comes to a point (either rounded or more rigid).

2. Round Face Shape

A rounded hairline and jawline are two telltale signs of a round face shape. Round face shapes also have a face width and length with the same measurements.

3. Square Face Shape

If your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are all the same width, you have a square face shape. Square face shapes also have a broader and more pronounced jawline and forehead. While the measurements of a square-shaped face are close to those of a round face, the overall shape of your face is more angular, with few curves.

4. Oval Face Shape 

An oval forehead is a combination of square and round. Typically, the forehead width is smaller than the cheekbone width, and the oval face shape is longer than it is wide. An oval-shaped face features a more rounded jawline and chin than a square face with sharper angles.

5. Diamond Face Shape

The diamond face shape is a sharp-corner version of an oval face shape. Typically, cheekbones are high and strong, and the distance between them is slightly wider than the length of the forehead. The tapering chin is narrower and more pointy, and the hairline has a sharper angle.

6. Oblong Face Shape

Oblong face shapes feature a face length that is longer than the width of the face. Their foreheads, cheekbones, and jaw widths appear to be the same. Oblong-shaped faces also feature a strong and squared jawline with a slightly curved chin.

7. Heart Face Shape

One of the most apparent indications of a heart-shaped face is a widow's peak hairline. In addition, the tapering chin is narrow with a strong peak, the forehead is wider than the jawline, and the cheekbones are broader than the forehead.

1. The objective of round-shaped faces is to balance the features of a round face shape by adding more angles and depths, making their face appear less circular and more balanced.

Round face shapes look best in long dangling earrings or tapered earring styles because they balance out round cheeks. Looped necklaces work well on round faces by drawing the eyes downward, thus elongating a broad face's appearance.

2. Earrings should elongate the face for square-shaped faces. To balance a square jaw, long dangling earrings with a narrow width are ideal.

For a square jawline, choose long necklaces with curved edges to soften the severity of the chin. Princess, matinee, opera, and rope lengths are ideal when choosing long necklace styles because they create a vertical line that beautifully elongates a square jaw.

3. Drop or dangle earrings with curves at the bottom are best for heart-shaped faces. This curved earring style will lessen the chin's sharp contours and make it seem more rounded.

Heart-shaped faces look the most dazzling in shorter necklace lengths with curved angles. A bold pendant on a short necklace is the ideal jewelry choice as it creates a visual stop directly under the chin, shortening the look of the face

4. While rounded, shorter earrings look great on oval-shaped faces, some experts advise avoiding long, straight dangle earrings. It may seem counterintuitive, but a circular face is complemented by fuller and shorter styles. A too thin and long style will add length to an oval face, resulting in a less attractive appearance.

Short necklace lengths are the best choice, specifically ones that sit right at the collarbone. Chunky, rounded necklaces look fantastic on oval faces and add curves and width to this face shape. As far as pendants, the ideal choices for this face shape are those featuring oval or teardrop designs that mimic the natural contour of an oval face.

5. Diamond-shaped faces should opt for short to medium earrings. Long necklaces can accentuate the length of a diamond-shaped profile, which is already long. Therefore, opt for shorter necklace lengths with width-wide curves, rectangle pendants, and collars.

6. Smaller dangling earrings and pearl studs are ideal for longer oblong-shaped faces since they direct attention across the face. Necklaces in choker, collar, and princess lengths (especially if you have a long neck) are perfect because they break up the vertical line occurring with an oblong face.

7. Triangle face-shapes should opt for earrings wider at the bottom rather than at the top. The goal is to offset a triangular look with earrings that de-emphasize the forehead and create an illusion with the width of the jawline.
In addition, a princess-length necklace is the best necklace choice as it places a gentle curve under the jawline and lengthens the look of the face.

8. Pear-shaped faces are best matched with broad earrings at the top with relatively narrow bottoms.

A short necklace that forms a "V" with a pendant is ideal. This type of pendant necklace gives the impression of a longer face by drawing the jaw out.


Whether you have a round, square, oval, heart-shaped, diamond-shaped, oblong-shaped, or triangle-shaped face, specific jewelry will help flatter your unique features. By following the advice in this article, you can enhance your appearance and feel more confident while wearing jewelry.
