Go shopping with a price range in mind and follow your gut instinct. Narrow down your choices based on your budget and eye appeal.
When choosing necklaces you also want to think about the volume or chunkiness of the necklace. a large boned or full figured gal will want a necklace that has a little bit of volume - perhaps large chunky stones or a thick link. Copper jewelry is a good choice. If you are petite, however larger jewelry may not look right on you and you may want to choose something more delicate. Also, take me volume of the piece into consideration. If you are big, boned or larger than chunkier necklaces might be more in proportion. However, a petite person may not look so good in large size jewelry.
Earrings can work towards or against the shape of your face. Depending on the shape of your face, you can use particular earring styles to emphasize a deemphasize flaws in the shape. When we talk about face shapes, we are referring to the basic shapes of round, rectangle or, heart-shaped, oval, or square. Those with an oval shaped face are the luckiest because they can wear any style and look good. If your faces round, however, you do not want to emphasize the fullness so you want to stay away from big button style earrings or hoops. Long earrings or square or rectangular shaped will help to elongate your face.
