If you follow our basic guide, not only will you balance your features, you'll most definitely be on the receiving end of some major ear envy as you show off your jewellery to its best effect.

Although face shape isn't an exact science and largely relies on measurement, there are 4 basic shapes: square, round, diamond and heart. So how do you know which one applies to you?

Diamond Face

A diamond-shaped face will be slightly longer with a narrower forehead and chin. Stud earrings are perfect for a simple look, button-like they sit just within the ear adding that finishing touch.

Round Face

A round face is determined by width across the cheekbones and earrings can balance out this face shape. Drop earrings in-particular do an amazing job of elongating a long face, creating an optical illusion of balance and symmetry.
