Match your jew­ellery to your face cut

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

It’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand the shape of your face be­fore you be­gin jew­ellery shop­ping. If you have a round face, pick a long neck­lace that ex­tends be­low the neck­line or if you have a heart-shaped face, go for shorter neck­laces and chok­ers that lend a bit of round­ness to your face, says an ex­pert. Tanai M Kathuria, fash­ion jew­ellery de­signer and stylist, TI Cou­ture, shares tips on how to pick the right jew­ellery ac­cord­ing to the shape of your face:

Round:

Pick a long neck­lace that ex­tends be­low the neck­line, along with chan­de­lier ear­rings or long, straight ear­rings. Avoid round-shaped ear­rings, and even round-cut di­a­monds or gem­stones. Lay your hands on ear­rings in dif­fer­ent shapes and cuts, like square or oval. Teardrop ear­rings would look best on a round shaped face.

Oval

Nei­ther round, nor long, this face shape is one where lots of ver­sa­til­ity can be ex­plored. You can flaunt long and short neck­laces with equal aplomb. Play around with dif­fer­ent styles of ear­rings, like big hoops and dan­glers. While go­ing for dan­glers, pick the ones that are an­gu­lar in shape.

Rec­tan­gu­lar

Com­ple­ment the length of your face with con­trast­ing jew­ellery style. Choker-style neck­lace will look per­fect on you, com­bined with short or round ear­rings. Even but­ton ear­rings are a great choice.

Heart

Since your chin area is nar­rower, go for shorter neck­laces and chok­ers that lend round­ness to your face. Dan­glers and teardrop ear­rings will give an elon­gated look to your face, and also en­sure that the jaw line does not look too sharp. Long, cylin­dri­cal and tri­an­gu­lar dan­glers are the ones you should be look­ing at.

Tip

While se­lect­ing maang tikas, keep the fore­head in mind. For a broad brow, a heav­ier maang tika with a ‘maatha patti’ is rec­om­mended. For a small fore­head, pick out a small tika, and go for a small ‘bindi’ along with it.
