Best earrings for square face shapes 

Best earrings for square faces

Medium to large hoops

With square faces the forehead and jaw are equal in width and they match the length of the face too, so the key is to soften the angles by introducing circles, opt for medium to large hoops as these will help elongate the face.

Dangle earrings

Diamond faces are wide across the cheek bones with a pointed chin and narrow forehead.  In general diamond face shapes suit most styles of stud earrings, but dangle earrings are perfect for creating the illusion of width near the the jawline and chin to help balance out the face.

Large round studs or medium sized hoops

Rectangular faces have a combination of elongated features and angles so you'll want to avoid long earrings as they will exaggerate the these features, instead choose large round studs or medium sized hoops that will add extra width near the cheek bones as well as roundness to balance the angles.
