Round or angular face, long or too short neck, large or small breasts… What if a necklace or earrings could help us to hide our (small) complexes? Some precepts to know to choose the right jewellery for our morphology.

Don’t let their name fool you: jewellery alone can change the style of an outfit. In the same way, they have the power to create optical effects more or less favourable to your silhouette.we explain.

Earrings should not have the same shape as the face.

As can say the rule concerning earrings is simple: their shape must contrast with the face. Thus, it is not advisable to wear creoles when you have a rounded face. On the other hand, they are ideal to soften a triangular or rectangular shape, because graphic or angular earrings would only accentuate features that are too linear. They are therefore reserved rather for round faces.

Need to lengthen your neck and refine your face? We bet without hesitation on sleepers, especially when they are worn with a pretty bun. Finally, there’s a model that suits all shapes of faces: the discreet and elegant little pearls, which always make their little effect!

The mistake not to make: Give up earrings simply because you are complexed by ears that are too big or loose. On the contrary, one assumes the full extent and makes an asset of it with a pretty ear jewel, for example.

The necklace should mirror the silhouette…

As far as the necklace is concerned, the logic is reversed: if one is thin, one prefers thin models and vice versa. The reason? When you have a wasp waist, it’s not very distinguished to wear imposing models with stones, which might look bigger than you. But if you’re rather round, you prefer bulky necklaces, perfect for drawing attention away from your shape.

Many of us complain about their necks, which they consider too short. To combat this complex, nothing is more effective than a necklace that falls just below the breasts. On the other hand, women with long necks can opt for a necklace that breaks the length a little.

The mistake not to make: One might think that small breasts should favour XL necklaces to add volume to the décolleté. However, by optical effect, if we wear a huge necklace, our breasts will look even smaller next to it.

Earrings and bracelets must not be tightened.

Those with long, thin fingers are lucky enough to be able to wear all types of rings, simply avoiding too strict shapes, such as square or rectangular for example. The short phalanges will bet on thin rings decorated with long and oval stones, just to lengthen them a little.

If you have chubby fingers, our best allies will be curved rings. As for bracelets, they are worn only on the wrists and we do not hesitate to multiply them.

The mistake not to make: Choose a ring that is too small and that will curl your fingers – and that will be very, very difficult to remove. Last but not least: say “no” to the slightly old-fashioned ornament and take your jewellery apart, for a more modern and audacious result.
