Selecting the Right Jewelry for Your Body

August 03, 2015

As individuals, we are all unique and beautiful. Jewelry can further enhance that beauty when the right pieces are selected. Keep in mind these tips on selecting the right jewelry for your body.

Consider the Shape of Your Face

Yes, the shape of your face does matter when it comes to selecting jewelry. This is particularly true for earrings. The general rule is, avoid earrings that are a similar shape to your face. So, if you have a square shaped face, avoid square stud earrings. If your face is shaped like an upside-down triangle, avoid heart-shaped earrings. If you have a long face, don’t wear long dangle earrings. Selecting similar shapes will only exaggerate the shape of your face rather than complimenting it.

Compliment Your Body Shape

Jewelry can bring attention to or take attention away from certain parts of your body. Use this to your advantage! For instance, if you have large hips, wear a bold necklace to bring attention to the upper part of your body. If you have a fairly round body, select long pieces for your earrings and necklace(s) to create a slimming effect.

Counteract Your Height

Height is just as important as shape. Short/petite women should always take a minimalist approach to jewelry. This means wearing delicate necklaces and earrings rather than large bold pieces. Large pieces can make you look shorter. If you’re looking to make a statement, focus on making one piece stand out and use elements such as color to do so. Tall and full figured women can wear bold pieces such as large layering necklaces, wrap bracelets, and chokers. However, they should avoid long necklaces or pieces that are too delicate.

Selecting the Right Jewelry for Your Body

Selecting the right jewelry for your body type involves understanding how different styles, shapes, and types of jewelry can create certain illusions. You can use this knowledge to build your jewelry collection with fun pieces that compliment your body type.
