We all love to flaunt those sparklers, but few of us realize, it takes the right pair of earrings to redefine an elegant look. An eccentric role is played by your facial features. Be it an oval, round or heart shaped face, there is a need for an accessory which adds beauty to your appearance.

Here’s a quick guide on the style of earrings which best suits your face shape and help create a photogenic impact.


Most Indian women have a round or oval shaped face. It’s considered to be a versatile face shape which compliments different styles of earrings right from cute studs, ovals to sparkling teardrops. Spiralled dangly pair will also look elegant. Be careful not to choose a pair of earrings that are too long, because the length can make your face appear too long. Choose earrings that fall above your chin.

We have celebrities like Madhuri Dixit, Priyanka Chopra, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie who fall in this category and look absolutely dashing wearing the fancy studs.


Someone like Rani Mukherjee, Sonakshi Sinha identify with this type and the preferred earrings for them would be the ones wider at the bottom, just like tear drops and chandeliers. Even pyramid style earrings will accentuate your face. But stay away from the heart shaped earrings, as it may show-off a disproportionate look.


If you have a round face like Preity Zinta and Kate Winslet, you should opt for lean, long & angular curved lines. This will enhance your features and add a little angle to your face. Square and rectangular earrings are also good options. But, make sure, that you avoid small studs and hoops and chunky large earrings as well.


Two of our stylists fall in this category namely Kareena Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. We must have seen them wearing hoops, long teardrops, or multi-tiered dangling earrings which add length to their face shape. Basically, the earrings which are long rather than wide will enrich the beauty of a square shaped woman.

Go ahead and choose a pair of earrings that enliven your facial appearance and makes you look a class apart.
