A sea of articles can be found online that claimed the best guideline for choosing earrings. But none of them can give a definite answer for every unique person. We are going to share our matching skills accumulated by years of jewels production experience. So you have come to the right place.
It is popular to divide people’s face shapes into 6 or 7 types, oval, long, square, round, heart, diamond, and triangle. And they will tell you that if you have a round face you should choose what kind of earrings. However, the most important they have neglected is the ratio of your facial organs. Here we are going to teach you how to choose the best earrings by the ratio of your facial organs.
The Golden Ratio
Outstanding artists and architects in the European Renaissance find the secret of beauty, the golden ratio which is responsible for their brilliant works in a sense. Now scientists prove that the most charming objects in the world are designed with the golden ratio or golden mean.
The Golden Ratio and Face Shapes
The golden ratio is a mathematical ratio roughly equal to 1.618. When it is applied to measure your face, it can shrink to 1.5 which means that when the length of your face is 1.5 times longer than the width of your face, your face reaches 10 while most people score 4-6.
We divide people’s faces into three types, round face, long face, and perfect face. The ratio of the length and the width lower than 1.5 belongs to the round face. Longer than 1.5 can be defined as a long face. Approximately equal to 1.5 is a perfect face.
People with a round face had better choose earrings with a straight line, acute angle, or square to alleviate bluntness and as well as to improve delicate.
But it doesn’t mean that girls with round faces can’t wear hoop earrings. The size and length of hoop earrings matter a lot. The principle you have to comply with in selecting hoop earrings includes a large but thin appearance and approximately equal to the length of the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin.
Long faces with an acute jawline and chin fit for earrings with flowing curve lines. For example, ball earrings or hoop earrings would be a perfect choice for them.
Hoop earrings make Taylor Swift neat while the long earrings with beads make people focus on her jawline rather than the whole face.
Too exaggerated earrings with a low visual focus would be a disaster for long faces as too long earrings will extend your face length. Compared to the above pictures, you will find that the visual focus of the yellow earrings is lower than the diamond-shaped one. So this kind of earrings may make you strange and are not suitable for daily matching.
Perfect faces can hold whatever types of earrings.
The golden ratio of facial organs
To explore the secret of beauty in nature, people divide the face into three parts—from the forehead hairline to a spot between the eyes, from between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and from the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin. A great number of researches show that those whose ratio of the three dimensions is equal are generally more beautiful than others.
When the distance between the eyes to the bottom of the nose is much longer than the other two dimensions, it belongs to long ‘zhongting’ (transliterated from Chinese).
As for this group, stud earrings, hoop earrings, huggie earrings or short drop earrings are good choices. Most of them have a nose longer than their ears. So short earrings such as yfn sloth earrings studs could compensate for the gap between the bottom of the nose and the bottom of the ears.
The eyes to the bottom of the nose are shorter than the other two dimensions, long ‘zhongting’ (transliterated from Chinese).
People with short noses fit for long earrings with straight lines but no longer than the bottom of the chin.
When the distance between the bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin is much longer than the other two dimensions, it can be defined to a long chin.
The key importance of selecting earrings for a long chin is to raise the visual focus. So we could choose short earrings with special styles such as this piece—sloth earrings studs. Short earrings with an exaggerated style can attract people’s focus around your mouth rather than your chin.
The bottom of the nose to the bottom of the chin is shorter than the other two dimensions, a short chin.
As for a short chin, the most important in choosing earrings is to extend people’s visual focus. Long and heavy earrings with metal elements are the best choice for them.
