The first thing to be considered is the wearer’s feature. Round face is suitable for various styles of long earring or eardrop and ear bead, except long pendant earring as well as earring with the effect of traverse extension. Slender “I” shaped eardrop brings out slender face.
Oval face is most adorable, which is nearly suitable for all patterns of earrings, particularly more elegant and charming sector eardrop and droplet eardrop.
Square-faced females may select round, button, heart and screw shaped earrings full of curves and smooth lines, or earring of exaggerated patterns, to bring out their beauty of female curves. Square face is masculine, for which exquisite, delicate and soft pattern of middle-and-small earrings should be selected. Earring should harmonize with complexion.
Females of fair complexion should wear on bright colored earrings like red, crimson or emerald; females of brown complexion should wear on earrings of soft colors like white, light blue, sky-blue or pink. Golden earring is suitable for people of all complexions. Wearing earring must harmonize with overall dressing. Bright-colored dressing matches earring in simple or similar color and luster. Overcoat matches fringe-less or big round earring, while one-piece matches fringe-less small round earring.
