IDENTIFY YOUR FACE SHAPE
To begin, first identify your face shape. If you need any help with this refer to our earlier post.
Now that you know your face shape, lets hear what experts say you should wear:
PAIR IT RIGHT
If you have a square face, you will be gifted with a strong brow line, striking cheekbones and a sharp jawline. Damn! That’s edgy 😉. Your choice of neckwear should work on softening these features. Pick styles that are more organic in their shape – remember to avoid geometric designs! Necklaces that add length and curves are your best friends . Choose pendants or other focal components with curves and swirls to counter the strong angular elements of your jaw.

ROUND FACE ۬۬
Those with a round face shape should always think long, thin and graceful. You want to wear delicate jewellery that will offset the fullness of your face. Longer necklaces, todas and haars that will elongate your necklaces and visually lengthens your face are preferable. Avoid styles like chokers and haslis. Quick tip if you like the visual style of a small neckpiece give it the illusion of length by adding tikdas or by letting it remain longer from one side.

If this is your face shape, then you want to focus on narrowing your forehead and widening the lower part of your face. Princess and matinee length necklaces are ideal as they create a gentle curve under the jawline. Remember you want to lengthen the look of the face. You could also achieve this with pendants that draw the focus from your pointed chin and counter the angularity of your jawline with their curves/round shape.

If you have an oblong face, you want to pick styles that hide all that length and play on accentuating the width of your face. For you large bold styles high up in the neck are best, particularly if you have a long neck as well. Look at short necklace styles like chokers, bold hasslis and collars. You can even look at small necklaces with bold pendants or or even short strings. If you wish to go dainty, space out the design to cover more horizontal space.

Since this face shape is all about the pointed chin and the wider forehead, pick necklaces that will soften the chin and jawline. Choker, collar and princess lengths are a good pick for you. Dainty haslis and gulubands are also ideal for you.
