How To Choose Bridal Jewellery For Your Face Shape?


Everyone has a unique face shape that can be enhanced with eccentric jewellery. It stands true in the case of bridal selects too, as too much jewellery can overpower a small face or certain jewellery types can make your face appear bigger. With such illusions, it’s advisable to understand your face shape and wardrobe requirements before you indulge in shopping for the most-awaited wedding of the season! Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a bridesmaid or just a wedding guest, discover minimal or maximal pieces that can be paired perfectly with your ethnic ensembles. 


Round Face

If you have a round face, you can wear a set consisting of a maang tika, earrings and a necklace. Choose a maang tika that is narrow and linear and may have a dropping motif. Choose drop or dangling earrings too, as these will give your round face a longer illusion. On the other hand, wear a necklace instead of a choker. A collar necklace can be worn solo or layered with longer necklaces for a fuller look if you're the bride. 

Square Face

If you have a round face, you can wear a set consisting of a maang tika, earrings, and a necklace. Choose a maang tika that is narrow and linear and may have a dropping motif. Choose drop or dangling earrings too, as these will give your round face a longer illusion. On the other hand, wear a necklace instead of a choker. A collar necklace can be worn solo or layered with longer necklaces for a fuller look if you're the bride. 

Rectangular Face

If you have a rectangular face, wear a medium to large maang tika that has a central circular motif. This will help cover your big forehead while adding softness due to its curves. Go for earrings such as jhumkas or chandbalis, again medium to large in size. These pieces will make an ornate set, that can be paired with a dainty drop necklace. 

Diamond Face

If you have a diamond face shape, build your exquisite set with a medium sized maang tika, small drop, hoop or dangling earrings, and a chunky choker necklace. This type of jewellery will complement your face shape making it look rounder. 

Oval Face

If you have an oval face, experiment as you like! This face shape is the most common and is perfect to match all types of jewellery. The usual set includes a maang tikka, but you can dress differently with a head harness. Choose earrings of any type and wear a choker or collar necklace, as your outfit demands. If you want a fuller look, you can add a nose ring too, or layer 2-3 necklaces. 


Your bridal set can be completed with scintillating rings and bracelets that are extremely versatile. Your selection of rings or bracelets do not depend upon any face shape!
