Now you’ve found your face shape lets use the earring guide and have a look at the best styles that will suit you to a T.

Heart shape – Heart shapes tend to be wider at the top of the head and smaller at the chin. To balance a heart shape face aim for wide based styles such as teardrop and avoid long vertical shapes like the bar.


Long – If your face is taller than it it wider its probably a long shape. To create balance try a wide, bold large earrings. Aim for statement circular shapes such as big sassy balls or teardrops on hoops.


Oval- Ovals are proportionally neither too wide or too tall and can get away with all earring shapes (lucky things)!


Diamond – Diamonds have gorgeous structured cheekbones and heavy bottomed shapes such as diamond and geode are super flattering for this face shape.


Square – A square face shape tends to have bold jaw lines and curves and flowing shapes can help soften this. The best shapes to try are styles such as dangly balls, Huggies and leaf.


Round – Round faces tend to be pretty symmetrical, being the same width and length. To help balance a round face, long, thin and vertical shapes are the best. Think the bar or geode.
