Antique diamond earrings can be elegant, or casual.
What’s that, you say? Antique diamond earrings can be worn every day? Really?
Certainly, but doing that requires a good sense of fashion and style.
So let’s look at a few general suggestions first. The first tip is as old as the sphinx itself: know yourself! It’s important to analyze the shape of your face and the size of your ears. Most of us have ears which are not symmetrical, and are of different sizes.
However, if the difference between your ears is not significant, size and shape are not that important. To focus attention on the shape of your face, wear earrings which are not longer than your jaw. The eye is drawn to the end of the earring, especially if they are dangly and sparkling.
Earrings should flatter the shape of your face: do you want to accentuate the jaw line or do you want to minimize it? Long and narrow earrings downplay a squarish shape face and can underscore a long and graceful neck.
In addition, antique diamond earrings can flatter or disparage the shape of your nose. Thin, small earrings will not help a person with a large prominent nose. Earrings which too closely mimic the shape of a nose will draw attention to it.
Pear shaped antique earrings will compliment a heart-shaped face, but will not compliment a round, wide face. To draw attention away from the nose, wear earrings which do not dangle below the earlobes. To divert attention away from the nose, earrings should cover the lobes.
Also, it’s a good idea to look for antique diamond earrings which will mimic the shape another feature, such as eyes or mouth.
What is your style? Preppy or boho? Dress up or down? Suits to work or casual slacks? Once you know your own approach, you can decide what kind of antique diamond earrings will work for you.
It’s a great time for fashion because we can dress up or down according to our own sense of style. No fashion police to say your skirt is too short or too long, your lipstick is too red or too green or your antique diamond earrings are too dressy or too plain!
