History of earrings
Earrings have remained popular for more than 7000 years, and originated in ancient Asia. Egyptians would once wear earrings to signify the fact they were wealthy or of a higher class. Those in Rome and Greece that were wealthy would also wear earrings set with pearls and other expensive stones to display their social status.
Over time, earrings have become more popular amongst women. Many women choose to wear different types of earrings with the purpose of complementing their face and accentuating outfit choices. For example, long earrings tend to elongate the face and neck whereas earrings that feature geometric shapes tend to sharpen the features.

- Match your earring to your face shape
Earrings can make your face look wide, thin, long, or round depending on your face shape.
Choose your face shape in the image provided and then check what shape earrings are best for you.
- Inverted triangle face shape
If your forehead is the widest part of your face, tapering down to a narrower, pointy chin, you have an inverted triangle face shape. To balance the inverted triangle-shaped face shape, choose earrings that de-emphasize the wide forehead, and create the illusion of width at the jawline. Chandelier or teardrop earrings work well.
- Oval shape
Is your face oval like an egg? You can wear almost any shape, but triangular earrings or simple studs will show off your lovely cheekbones best!
- Round shape
If your face is circular, meaning widest at the cheekbones with no taper to the chin, then you have a round face. Drop or dangle earrings will elongate your face and make it look slimmer. Avoid large circular earrings, hoops, and button studs that only emphasis the roundness. Also, stay away from drop earrings with a dangling round disc.
- Heart-shape face
If your forehead is wider than your cheeks and the lower half of your face narrows like a heart then you have a heart-shaped face. In this case, you need to counterbalance your sharp chin with chandelier or teardrop earrings.
- Long-shape face
If you have a long, thin face choose earrings that emphasis the width of your face. Studs, clustered earrings, short dangles, hoops in a medium to large size. Any time of round earrings will widen your face, and make it look fuller
- Square-shape face
Gals with wide square jaws forehead and jawline are similar widths) need to soften the hard edges of their face. Oval shapes soften things up, and circular earrings and hoop earrings work well too. Stay away from square studs or an earring with a square as it only reinforces the squareness.
