Choosing the right jewellery styles according to your face plays an important role in enhancing your overall look. Pankaj Khanna, Managing Director and Founder of Gem Selections, shares insight into what are the ideal jewellery choices depending upon different face shapes.


Oval faces

The oval face is soft and curved, with an equal distance from the hairline to the eyebrow and from the eyebrow to the chin.

Necklaces

Oval faces can wear almost any shape or style of necklace, provided the design is in proportion to the individual body shape. Necklaces should complement the neckline worn for e.g: If you have a long neck, choker will be good choice and low-hanging necklaces with drops accent a low-cut neckline. The oval faces are best accented by soft curving shapes such as pearls, ribbon, open link chain, affirmation rings and more. Check out a great selection of necklaces at ARY D’PO.

Earrings

Oval faces can wear almost any shape or style of earring, if the designs are in proportion to her face. Avoid styles that are overly long, as they will lengthen the oval face. To minimize a thin oval face or a too-long nose, use styles that creep up the ear or have wings that sweep upward. Echo the oval face with hoops, hoops in circles, chandeliers and other soft, curving designs using open link chain, teardrops and go-gos–or dramatically set off the oval face with triangle-shaped earrings.

The Round Face

The round face is soft and curved, with an equal distance all around. The nose is a central point for this face shape

Necklaces

Longer, looping necklaces draw the eyes down and lengthen the look of the face. One should go for large focal components which create a “V”. Avoid chokers, collar and princess lengths, since they shorten the neck and add width to the throat.

Earrings

The round face is ideal for wearing long, vertical styles–especially dangles, drops, narrow chandeliers and ear threads. Any styles that draw attention to a strong vertical line will be flattering for a round face. Long drop earrings are an ideal choice, as they lengthen the line of the face.

The Oblong (or Rectangular) face

The oblong/rectangular face is longer than it is wide–the width of the face at the forehead, cheekbones and chin are the same or almost the same.

Necklaces

Short necklaces reduce the appearance of lengths of the oblong/rectangular face. Choker, collar and princess lengths are ideal (especially if you have a long neck). Circular neckwires and necklaces without heavy or bold focal components are another option for the oblong/rectangular face.

Earrings

The oblong/rectangular face is ideal for wearing large, bold styles–especially large post (“button”) styles and wide chandeliers with colour, movement and drama.

The Square Face

The square face has a strong jaw line–the distance from the top of the face to the chin matches the width of the face. In addition, the width of the face at the forehead, cheekbones and chin are the same or almost the same.

Necklaces

Square faces need necklaces with length and curves to soften the strong jaw line. Princess, matinee, opera and rope lengths are ideal. Choose pendants or focal components with curves and swirls to counter the strong angular elements of the jaw.

The square face is ideal for wearing large oval hoops, long drop and narrow chandelier earrings.

The Heart-Shaped (or Inverted Triangle) face

The heart-shaped face has a wide brow and narrow chin. In addition, the width of the face at the forehead and cheekbones is greater than the width at the chin.

Necklaces

Heart-shaped faces need short necklaces with curves to reduce the appearance of length in the jawline and diminishes the sharp point of the chin. Triple-strand chokers or large beads at the base of the throat creates fullness at the neck and balances the wider area around the eyes and cheekbones. A bold pendant on a short necklace creates a visual stop directly under the chin, shortening the look of the face. Circular neckwires, omega chains and short bib-style necklaces are another option for the heart-shaped/inverted triangle face.

Earrings

As heart shape has angles around the chin dangling earrings that are more rounded at the bottom are perfect for this face type. These dangling earrings will help to reduce the angles around the chin and makes it more rounded. Teardrop and Chandelier earrings are also suitable for this shape. One should avoid wearing slim drop earrings as this focuses attention to the chin. (IANS)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
