For starters, the basic facts. A well-matched pair of earrings draws attention to a woman’s face while necklaces attracts the attention towards face, neck, or even waist. Rings and bracelets are a means to draw attention towards the hands. While buying any jewelry, you must keep in mind your body type, bone structure and facial features.

Here’s a lowdown on how you can mix and match jewelry based on your physical morphology.

Earrings:
Chandelier style or dangle earrings are the best options for tall women. If you are full figured, then geometric earrings with sharp designs would make your silhouette look slender. They also reduce the narrowness of face and take attention away from a long nose.

Necklaces/Pendants
Women who are neither too tall or short, with medium weight and long necks can go for almost any kind of necklace styles. Long chains with heavily embellished pendants would look striking on most women.

For curvy figures, dangling pendants would work well by drawing attention away from the few extra kilos and add more height. Chokers would go exceptionally well with women with long necks.

Bracelets and Rings

Although, bracelets are not as influential in making or breaking your look, they do add to your entire ensemble. However, chunky bracelets and bangles go well with women with a pronounced wrist. Simple charms are a better option for thin wrists. The same logic applies to rings. Large Solitaire and Halo designs go well on bigger hands. While channel and three stone settings are a good choice for women with small palm and fingers.
