The wonderful and fun thing about jewelry is choosing it and feeling fantastic when you wear it, to make the most of both your inner and outer beauty. Anyone can wear jewelry, however some styles that are flattering to some, might not look right on others.
The shape and size of the necklace or bracelet needs to be considered. It’s easy to get so caught up in matching jewelry with current fashion trends that you forget that, like clothing, jewelry needs to fit, too. When it doesn’t, your whole look can be thrown off kilter.
One’s neck and wrists are beautiful parts of the body; Necklaces have to work with your face, neck and bust, all at once. Bracelets draw attention to your wrists and should be delicate if you have a delicate figure. Narrow bands and bangles are great choices for petite women.
Chunkier styles look better on larger figures, longer styles draw the eye downward elongating your height. Pieces with larger stones and/or thicker chains are also preferable to small, delicate pieces for fuller figures. Choker necklaces can work to make you look shorter. A petite person may not look so good in large size jewelry.
The sparkle of gemstones and the sway of dangling earrings draw immediate attention to the face and can either emphasize or de-emphasize different areas. Small settings get lost under long hair. If your face is long or rectangular-shaped you don’t want to wear longer dangling earrings as this will tend to elongate your face. Stick with smaller studs to match your face shape.
The perfect piece of jewelry can make you feel protected and empowered. You can accentuate your best features with jewelry, just as you would with clothes or makeup.
