1. Heart-shaped face
If you’re like supermodel Halima Aden and you’ve got a heart-shaped face, congrats! It’s one of the most versatile face shapes, and it practically goes with most jewellery styles. Heart-shaped faces tend to have wider cheekbones, and a smaller chin.
Since you’re fortunate to have this face shape, have a bit of fun! Go for whimsical drop earrings, or layer a couple of blinged-out charm bracelets for a glam everyday look.
2. Square face
If you have a square-ish face shape like Australian writer and director Margaret Zhang, you’d usually have a forehead that is off a similar width to your cheekbones.
To soften the angular shape of your face, try to get jewellery that come in more organic shapes. Look for design motifs with softer lines – such as circles, flowers or hearts – as a way of balancing out your face shape. The key is to avoid anything too linear, as it may elongate your face further.
3. Inverted triangle face
Inverted triangle faces – like that of American actress Larsen Thompson – mean that your forehead is the widest point, and you have a small chin.
To balance out this facial structure, you can use a fitted choker to balance out your forehead. Curving motifs like hearts or circles also can help to soften the obvious triangular shape as they add width visually.
4. Faces with a strong jaw/chin
Much like artist Tasya Van Ree (left) and model Georgia May Jagger (right), the way to help soften a strong jawline is to stick to drop necklaces and rounded motifs.
Tasya’s circular pendants help to soften her strong jawline, and each circle pendant acts as a “charm” vessel because you can add on other charms to personalise it!
On the other hand, Georgia’s drop necklace is also a great option, because it helps to soften the squareness of her chin.
5. Rectangle face
Nathalie Emmanuel is a perfect example of a rectangular face, as her face shape tends to be longer. Women with rectangle face shapes should not wear necklaces that are too long, because it will only make your face look longer.
Instead, opt for a shorter chain and (once again), use rounder shapes to balance your face out.
