Choose Your Own Jewelry Styles
by: George Williams
When you want to buy jewelry, you have to choose the one that can compliment
a formal outfit or for daily wear. It is not cheap to buy one, so think
carefully before you decide. If you make the right decision, that chosen jewelry
styles can draw attention to your best features or possibly camouflage less
desirable areas. Your choice of jewelry style will subtly affect others
perceptions, so what guidelines are there to help you select the most flattering
The main factor when choosing earring is your face shape. Face shape is
important when selecting earrings. Face shapes are generally grouped as: oval,
rectangle, round, heart and square.
Individuals with an oval face shape can wear any style while other people should
look for styles that contrast their face shape. Selecting a hoop or button style
for a round face would only emphasize the round shape. Square or long shapes
will de-emphasize a round face.
The same is true with other face shapes; a long, rectangular face should stay
away from long, dangling earrings and choose smaller studs instead. Square faces
need the softness of round or hoop earrings and heart shaped faces are
complimented with triangular shapes with a wide base that contrasts a narrow
Your choice of necklace can minimize or emphasize your size. If you want to
create or emphasize a taller appearance choose longer necklaces and V shapes. A
necklace that falls past the bustline but above the waist will elongate while a
choker style or shorter U shaped necklace resting on the breast bone will
shorten your appearance.
The size of your necklace should also be considered. Fuller figures can
compliment their proportions with larger, chunkier pieces that would overwhelm
an individual with a smaller frame.
Bracelets and Rings:
Similar guidelines should be followed with bracelets and rings as with necklace
choice. Women of average build and height will find a wide bracelet most
complimentary. Petite women should look for more delicate pieces and tall or
full figured women should layer several small or wide bracelets, avoiding very
delicate pieces that can look lost.
When selecting rings make sure that the setting doesn't cover your knuckle which
not only will cause fingers to look short but can interfere with movement and
Shorter fingers benefit from oval settings while longer fingers look best with
wide bands or simple, round settings.
What you like and want to own:
While these guidelines may influence the type of jewelry you select you can be
sure that there are many, many choices for all tastes and occasions regardless
of your shape or size.
The above are guidelines. The most important of all is choosing what you love.
It is you who wear them. Even though those chosen ones are perfect for your face
shape and size, you do not like them.
There is no point to buy. Use your feeling to decide which one is best for you.
