Sometimes it can be difficult choosing the right kind of jewelry that would not only complement one’s outfit but also their facial structure, skin tone, body shape, hairstyle and so on. Hence, it is always a good idea to consider certain factors beforehand to make a better final purchasing decision.
Firstly, it is best if the buyer is able to determine the reason behind the selection and purchase of fashion jewelry, that is, is it for any special occasion or for daily wear. Jewelry suited for some special event would require factors, such as the overall look that the female wants to achieve, to be considered. If a simple appearance is called for, then even stud earrings would do. For a greater effect on the other hand, fancy chandelier earrings would be a good idea.
When choosing jewelry, especially earrings, with respect to one’s height, it is important to remember that generally upsweeping styles make shorter women seem tall, and long dangling earrings better suit women that are taller. With respect to one’s facial frame, rounder earrings, especially hoops, soften rectangular or faces that are very thin. It is also a good idea for women with heart-shaped facial structures to wear earrings that are wider at the bottom, in order to divert attention from their pointed chins. Rounder faces may go for earrings that are longer in length and hanging, for instance, drop earrings.
Women also need to be aware of the fact that shimmering gems used in producing earrings, in addition to their dangly design make the face more prominent, attracting attention towards it. This may be an advantage in some cases and a drawback in others when certain areas on one’s face do not need to be highlighted.
Some women prefer jewelry items, especially earrings, only with their favorite gems used in the design. Hence, the quality of the gems and stones used in different pieces of jewelry also needs attention and awareness, with respect to its weight, cut, color and clarity. For instance, in the case of pink earrings made by using diamonds that have a pinkish hue, it is always a good idea to study the four main specifications that affect quality. The lesser the flaws in a diamond, the more expensive and rare it will be.
