How to Choose the Right Jewelry for Your Skin Tone and Face Shape

Jewelry is something that has to do with emotion. That aspect of jewelry really interests me.

Types of jewelry are plenty, and so are tastes matching them; jewelry is not only a huge fashion statement thing but it’s a fantastic way to upgrade any plain outfit, or even more importantly – wear a piece that will make you happy and satisfied with yourself.

And you know what’s happening when you are feeling happy?  You are radiating positive feelings and people are generally more attracted to you!

Still, choosing a wrong piece of jewelry may as well make you look way to simple, way to blah, or way older than you actually are. You are probably thinking – why should you be even bothering with putting too much thought into picking out jewelry when all you need is a nice piece that will agree with your current outfit. Well, putting the right metal color on can make quite an amazing difference!

We are giving you a few great advice that will help you pick just the right pieces for you and help you look even more beautiful than you already are!

Determine your face shape

Not all pieces of jewelry go with every face shape; this is why it’s important you first determine your face shape and then choose the accessorize you want to wear.

Round faces (hint: Penelope Cruz) are close to a perfect circle. This type of face is not wider than it is longer nor longer than it is wider. The chin is slightly emphasized (squared).

Oval faces (hint: Beyoncé Knowles) are 1.5 times longer than they are wide. They resemble are vertical circle.

Square faces (hint: Angelina Jolie) are prominent for the jawline. Square faces have the same width of the jawline and hairline. They are somewhat characterized as “rough”.

Heart shaped (hint: Jennifer Aniston) faces have a narrow forehead and jawline, and are widest at the cheekbones. 

Diamond shaped (hint: Halle Berry) faces have a wider forehead and temples, and also a narrow chin.

Master the art of what jewelry goes with your face shape

Here it comes – the wisdom!

Round faces are perfectly combined with long necklaces that hang low as they offset the round shape of the face. Also, a round face will look wonderful with long, angled earrings. Choose earrings of trapezoids and rectangles shapes.

Oval faces tolerate various shapes and sizes. If you are blessed to have an oval face, be happy that you can wear almost any style of necklace or earrings. Chandelier earrings as well as hoops are particularly flattering.

Square faces should be combined with necklaces that have pendants or trinkets at the bottom; that way you will be drawing attention away from the angular jawline. Further, pendants with curved shapes, chandelier earrings or large hoops will complement the face shape and so will any type of body piercing (i.e. face piercing).

Heart shaped faces will look amazing complemented by a choker or short necklaces as they are subtly adding roundness to the narrow chin. Bud earrings, smaller hoops, heart or triangle shaped dangled earrings will be flattering for this face shape.

Diamond shaped faces go perfectly with bud earrings, short hoops, chokers and short necklaces. This jewelry adds length to the narrow chin.

How to Choose the Right Jewelry

The color of skin and jewelry

Skin color isn’t the main factor but it does add to the decision-making.

Dark skin goes perfectly with gold or gold-inspired jewelry, as well as any strong color like yellow, blue, green, white, etc.
Pale skin matches silver or silver-inspired pieces; sometimes, silver may be tricky to combine with skin that’s too white as it may look a bit washed out.  In cases like those opt for darker silver. Also, it goes well with colorful jewelry, mostly pastels to avoid the unpleasant contrast.

 Sure, you’ve probably never thought about jewelry this way and are accustomed to buying currently trending accessorize or the all-timers everyone’s raving about without putting much thought into the whole process but we believe you now understand why taking all these things into consideration is a must.
