Earring Size Matters

I love large earrings. And I am happy to say that over the past few years they have been making a comeback. However, there is confusion about how big earrings should be when worn for work. Currently, large earrings make a fashion statement. They also make a statement about you. The wrong earrings can harm your credibility, they can be distracting and in some situations dangerous. When choosing earrings for work opt small to medium sized earrings with minimal details to keep attention focused on you not the earrings. Always consider your work environment, your job and the culture of your company and industry.

How to Choose Jewellery Shapes

Jewellery such as a necklace or earrings can accentuate your positive features or your not so positive features. If you love the shape of your face and want to emphasize it, the easiest way is to wear jewellery in the same shape.

However, if you aren’t so happy with your face shape or a feature this strategy will only draw attention to it. For example: if you have a long face or neck (and are not happy with it) you may want to stay away from long dangly earrings; round earrings will emphasize a round face. To harmonize your jewellery with your features, repeat the personality of your features without repeating the shape exactly. Curves look great with curved shapes and soft lines; Angles look fabulous with angular shapes and sharp lines. They harmonize without emphasizing.
