The Square Face
has a strong jawline and
the distance from the top of face to the chin is equal to the width. To soften the jawline and give the appearance
of curves, the recommended clip on earrings are large oval hoops, long drops
and narrow chandeliers. It is important
to subtract from this face shape and give the illusion of length and softening

The Heart Face has a wide brow and narrow
chin with the width of the face at the forehead to the cheekbones greater than
the width at the chin. The top part of
the face is usually soft and curved whereas the chin has an inverted triangle
appearance. The clip on earrings best
for this facial shape need to be wider at the bottom. Vertical hoops, long and
narrow styles, inverted triangles, or even buttons create width at the chin for
a more balanced look.

The Triangle Face is similar to the Heart
Face, except, it has a narrow brow and a wide jawline. The width of the face at the jawline and
cheek bones is greater than the width at the forehead. The recommended clips on earrings for this
shape are ones that draw the eyes from the narrowest part of the face to the
jawline. Choose earrings like buttons
that curve up to the ears to create the illusion of width. Choose narrow dangles to create more length.
The overall goal is to balance the face.

The Diamond Face is widest at the
cheekbones with equal distance, though narrower at the forehead and
jawline. The clip on earrings suited
for this facial shape are wide open, but the most complimentary are earrings
with angular styles (diamond shaped with sharp corners, points and edges) and cut crystal. To soften the angles wear hoops.
