Falling wildly for fashion trends and red carpet sirens, it's easy to stray away from simple logic when it comes to adornment. Much of what we wear is decided on the basis of personal style and preference, but did you know that a simple, logical tweak can bring out the best in your features?

Let's explore face shapes. We know that face shapes can range from round, oval, oblong and square to faces in the shape of a heart and even a diamond. And if your face shape makes you fret over it, there's help at hand. The right kind of jewellery, especially earrings, can make a face look less square-shaped or less oblong-shaped, as the case may be.

Round face

Long, streamlined drop earrings work best for a round face. If studs are up your alley, then go for bold, angular ones that will elongate the roundness of your face.

Heart-shaped face

Earrings that are wider at the bottom, like a pyramid, work well with a heart-shaped face as they add volume to make up for the thin, angular chin.

Oblong face

As the definition goes, avoid oblong or long, thin earrings for this face shape. Studs in almost all sizes and shapes are your best bet.

Diamond-shaped face

A diamond-shaped face is unique and calls for small studs or hoops to frame it. On the other hand, curves and volumes can also work for this face type.

Oval face

Oval-faced beauties are lucky as this universal face shape can pull off almost any type of jewellery. Studs of all shapes and sizes will suit an oval face. However, avoid oval-shaped studs as these will emphasize the face shape.

Square face

The square shape of the face can be offset with round or oval-shaped earrings. Go for curves or hoops to cut down the sharp angles. Avoid square-shaped earrings for this face shape.
