Will large earrings suit my face shape?

Larger pairs of earrings draw all the attention to your face — especially if you choose diamond earrings. For every face shape there is also a type of earring that fits best. If you have a round face, your face is the widest at the cheekbones, meaning you should choose long earrings. The length will optically refine your face and provide more balance. You can also choose elongated earrings with a square or rectangular pendant to create a nice contrast between the roundness of your face and the geometric shapes of the earrings.

If you rather have an angular face, then you can soften your facial features by choosing earrings with an elegant design. Go for graceful shapes that break up the angular lines of your face. Short pendants with a delicate design are perfect. Diamond earrings with round pendants are also a brilliant choice.

If your face is rather elongated, then large creoles were made for you. These are large round earrings that have become a real statement jewel in recent years. In Caribbean cultures, creoles actually symbolise resilience, strength and identity.

If you wear glasses, it is better to choose a simpler pair of earrings. Your glasses already attract attention and a pair of statement earrings can be too much of a good thing. Instead, go for a smaller pair of earrings such as diamond or gold studs.

What hairstyle can I wear with statement earrings?

With shorter hair, classic, smaller earrings look best — but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve a striking look. For a bit more flair, choose more eye-catching studs in unique precious metals like rose gold.

With long hair, various styles of large earrings fit, but sometimes the hair gets tangled in your jewellery — but that’s nothing a hair clip can’t solve. Choose a hairstyle that allows some strands to come out at the back, so that your large earrings stand out even more. A side braid is also perfect for accentuating your earrings.

Always choose earrings that match the colour of your hair and skin tone. With light brown hair, you can opt for yellow gold earrings, as they will enhance the warmth of your hair colour and skin tone. If you have black or dark brown hair, choose platinum or white gold ones. For blonde hair, the choice depends on the undertone of their blonde hairstyle. If you have a warm undertone, then choose yellow gold or rose gold. For cooler undertones, white gold earrings or a striking gemstone such as sapphire or emerald are appropriate. Sapphire earrings also go very well with grey hair, as do ruby earrings.

What occasion calls for large earrings?

Large earrings are not just for stars on the red carpet, yet these statement pieces do not suit every occasion. A special event is the ideal occasion to make a fashion statement with a pair of eye-catching diamond earrings.. Be careful with weddings, though. Check the theme and dress code carefully and keep in mind that the bride may not appreciate you walking around with all the attention on you. If certain guidelines are given regarding your outfit, choose the safe option and wear understated jewellery instead.
On a day-to-day basis, you can probably judge for yourself whether a pair of statement earrings is appropriate or not. Does it fit your office dress code? Then why not go to a business meeting wearing statement earrings.

Are you looking for a pair of earrings for a special occasion? Then the earrings from BAUNAT's designer collections are perfect. For example, there is the Licio collection, where beechnuts were the source of inspiration or the Monarca collection, which is inspired by the monarch butterfly.

How can I style my outfit to match larger earrings?

If you opt for statement earrings, it is important to keep a good balance with the rest of your look. For example, avoid an outfit with a striking pattern or busy details, because the whole look will quickly come across as messy. If you choose statement earrings, you will of course want the emphasis to be on those striking earrings. Are you going for big earrings in a striking colour? If so, then choose an outfit in that same colour or go for black for a perfect contrast.

Also, remember to match your makeup with your earrings. Large earrings are best suited with natural make-up so that the attention is focused on the jewellery. For example, don't combine your statement earrings with smokey eyes and bold lips. If you want to wear bright red lipstick, choose fine and elongated earrings that draw attention to your jawline and mouth. Likewise, go light on the eyeshadow because it will be accentuated by the earrings. For instance, pair your yellow gold earrings with golden bronze eyeshadow and your white gold or platinum earrings with a cool eyeshadow in a darker shade than your eye colour. Those with green eyes can opt for a combination of rose gold earrings and copper eyeshadow to make their eye colour pop.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of large earrings?

The advantage of large earrings is that you immediately draw all the attention to your face. This can be useful if you want to stand out at an event or have to speak in front of a large audience, for example. Yet, there are also disadvantages to statement pieces. Earrings that weigh too much can cause the hole in your ears to stretch or your earlobe to tear in the long run — but only in rare cases. The key is to save the statement pieces for special events.
