Jewelry style tips to compliment a round face

Fullness is one of the major characteristics attributed to the round face shape. Therefore there's a need for an added dimension of length to be created, in order to help provide balance. To draw the eye in an upward direction, facial features need to appear lifted. Jewelry pieces can be used to accentuate your best features, while at the same time provide the illusion of facial length to compliment your silhouette.

The choices in jewelry that you choose to wear should reflect these elements within their shapes and styles (especially with pieces that are worn close to the face).

A necklace is one of the most expressive pieces of jewelry that can be worn. It can frame the face, draw attention to specific features (depending upon length, size and style chosen), and accentuate personal style. With a wide range of styles, shapes, sizes materials and colors available, wearing a necklace is a great way to complete a look!

Appropriate Necklaces Styles for the Round Face Include:

Long t-style necklaces (which compliment a round face nicely and create the illusion of length).

28" to 34" (Opera Length) necklaces are also flattering choices.

Styles that are in the shape of a "V" create a longer, leaner line.

Round Faces Should Avoid:

Chokers, collars or short necklaces of any style.

Large pearls, stones and bulky pieces that tend to add visual weight to the neck.

With so many different shapes and styles of earrings available, including; ovals, buttons, drop chandeliers, hoops, studs etc. (just to name a few), the choices seem to be endless! That's why it's important to choose styles, shapes and sizes that both compliment your facial shape and accentuate your personal style. Always keep in mind that the larger the earrings, the more noticeable they are. Therefore the types of earrings that you choose to wear have a direct impact on your overall appearance. This could have the potential of bringing out your best features, or pointing out your flaws. Earrings are worn so closely to the face, that they're often considered to be one of the most important accessories. They also have the ability to reflect light and flattering color onto your face.

Appropriate Earring Styles for the Round Face:

Geometric shapes including squares, triangles, rectangles, diamonds and long ovals (also simple round medium sized studs).

Long earrings and drop earrings draw attention to the face and are the most flattering styles (creates the illusion of length).

A combination of curved and straight angles.

Round Faces Should Avoid:

Any round or circular shape (unless they're long), medium size studs, soft teardrop styles, or combination of curved and straight angles.

Any large round buttons, or very small studs.

Large and bulky styles that create the illusion of width.

The most important thing to remember when choosing jewelry for yourself is that you must feel comfortable. Whichever types of styles you choose to wear, always make sure that your unique personality shines through. It's important that your feel confident, beautiful and at ease. Style is important, but never put it above your own personal comfort!

What type of pearl necklace should I buy?

What type of pearl necklace should I buy?

I have decided that I want to purchase a nice pearl necklace that will be passed down for generation. I don't know much about good brands or what type of pearl I should look for. Can anyone make any suggestions?

A good pearl should feel gritty or sandy, not smooth. The pearl should also appear fine grained, have minimal flaws, and should be pretty heavy.
Check out this website. It gives you the different kinds of pearls you can buy, a description of them, and basic shape and colors!

Good Luck! I love pearls too! I personally love the classic, round, creamy color pearl, but gray is lovely too!;_ylt=AtWKGlDXoxkQfofDwpLBM9UjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20070419065251AAhN4qk

Almost any shelled mollusk can, by natural processes, produce some kind of "pearl" when an irritating microscopic object becomes trapped within the mollusk's mantle folds, but the great majority of these "pearls" are not valued as gemstones. Nacreous pearls, the best-known and most commercially-significant pearls, are primarily produced by two groups of molluscan bivalves or clams. A nacreous pearl is made from layers of nacre, by the same living process as is used in the secretion of the mother of pearl which lines the shell.

A "natural pearl" is one that forms without any human intervention at all, in the wild, and is very rare. Many hundreds of pearl oysters or pearl mussels have to be gathered and opened, and thus killed, in order to find even one wild pearl, and for many centuries that was the only way pearls were obtained. This was the main reason why pearls fetched such extraordinary prices in the past. A cultured pearl, on the other hand, is one that has been formed with human intervention on a pearl farm. The vast majority of pearls on the market today are cultured pearls.

One family of nacreous pearl bivalves, the pearl oysters, lives in the sea while the other, very different group of bivalves live in freshwater; these are the river mussels such as the freshwater pearl mussel. Saltwater pearls can grow in several species of marine pearl oysters in the family Pteriidae. Freshwater pearls grow within certain (but by no means all) species of freshwater mussels in the order Unionida, the families Unionidae and Margaritiferidae.

A pearl

A pearl is a hard, roundish object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of mollusks, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes of pearls (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl became a metaphor for something very rare, very fine, very admirable and very valuable.

Valuable pearls occur in the wild, but they are very rare. Cultured or farmed pearls make up the majority of those that are currently sold. Pearls from the sea are valued more highly than freshwater pearls. Imitation or fake pearls are also widely sold in inexpensive jewelry, but the quality of the iridescence is usually very poor, and generally speaking, fake pearls are usually quite easy to distinguish from the real thing. Pearls have been harvested, or more recently cultivated, primarily for use in jewelry, but in the past they were also stitched onto lavish clothing, as worn, for example, by royalty. Pearls have also been crushed and used in cosmetics, medicines, or in paint formulations.

In several European languages, the word "pearl" is synonymous with "bead", which can lead to confusion during translation.
