Earring Guide: Matching Earrings with Types of Face Shape

Earrings are one of our favorite jewelry pieces and can do a great job of complimenting any facial structure if worn correctly. Different types of earrings will attract attention and can balance out particular face shapes in various ways.  

In this article, we talk about different fash shapes and the earrings that look best on them.

Let’s get started!

Round Face

A rounded face emulates a complete circle. Women with circular-shaped faces don’t have sharp angles on their cheeks or chin; their round cheeks give their faces a circular and broader shape. 

If you have a rounded face, longer earrings look fabulous because they create more length for your face. If you have a slender and long face, long earrings tend to make your face look longer. 

People with rounded faces should avoid wearing large hoops because they tend to create more circular shapes with their already round features. On top of that, if you wear stud earrings, they will be hard to notice and can make your face appear more round.

Oval Face

An oval-shaped face is longer than a round shape and usually doesn’t have a broad forehead or chin, but the key is that it’s still rounded, so many of the same rules apply to the round face. It’s typically said that the oval face is the ideal face because of the natural shapes and angles of the face and how nicely they blend, which helps to evenly distribute the features of your face.

You can wear just about any style or type of earrings with an oval face without worrying about whether or not your earrings are too much or not enough. Triangle-shaped earrings, studs, and hoops work great with an oval face and bring lots of attention to your cheekbones.

Heart-Shaped Face


Heart-shaped faces tend to be winder across the forehead and have a narrower chin, the heart-shaped is softer as it moves from the top of the face to the bottom, and as you continue to move down, the face gradually narrows, just like a heart would.

The earrings that you should wear should be broader or heavier towards the bottom since the chin of heart-faced people is smaller. The larger bottomed earrings will help to balance out your entire face. Teardrop earrings, for example, would be a beautiful way to compliment a heart-shaped face.

Inverted Triangle Face

The inverted triangle face is closely related to the heart-shaped face wtih the main difference being that it has more angles and bone structure compared to the softer heart-shaped face. Striking cheekbones and jawlines are shared characteristics of the inverted triangle shape.

Again, just like a heart-shaped face, you should choose earrings that are larger towards the bottom in order to balance your face.

Square Face

A square face is boxier but still similar to a round-shaped face in that it’s symmetrical all around. The jaw and forehead are similar in width, which causes the square-looking shape.

For these types of square faces, the best thing to soften your look is to wear rounded earrings such as hoops or stud earrings that are round in nature. 

Diamond Shaped Face

Diamond faces have distinct characteristics in that the eyes are the widest part of the face. The forehead and chin are the same widths which creates a longer face, and the eyes easily become the main focus for these people.

For diamond-shaped faces, you should stay clear of earrings that create sharp angles. You should lean towards earrings that soften your face’s angles and stock to teardrop earrings that help create more width around your chin.

Match Your Bone Structure To Your Earrings

  • Fine-boned facial structures- You should choose earrings that are delicate with flat, thin, and fine features. You don’t want to overpower the gentle beauty of a smaller, daintier facial structure.
  • Medium Bone Structure: Women with medium bone structure should choose medium-weight and size earrings.
  • Large Bone Structure: If you have a larger bone structure, you can wear larger, heavier, and chunkier earrings. 

Wear Earrings That Match Your Lifestyle

Think about the places you will be wearing your earrings. This will be important when choosing earrings.

Work/Office: If you are going into an office every day, wearing conservative earrings is the way to go. You can never go wrong with classic styles in gold. Stay away from big hoop earrings or dangling earrings as well.

After Work: When it’s time to go home, you can wear whatever you want! There are no rules except the ones we talked about above.

Artsy types should go for colorful, bright, and fun earrings that you can wear with anything.

The classic type should go for timeless styles such as button earrings in gold or silver, small hoops, and diamond earrings.

If you are the natural, minimalist type, wear small, simple earrings that are barely noticeable.

Match Earrings To Your Coloring

Have you ever had your colors done? Everyone has a “season” color, which helps you match your skin tone to colors that look the best on you.

For example, if you have warm skin tones such as yellow or peach, that means you look best in spring or autumn colors and look best wearing copper metals and gold.

If you are in a winter or summer season, having pink or blue tones to your skin, silver will look fantastic on you!
