THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CHOOSING THE BEST EARRINGS FOR YOU

Picking the perfect pair of earrings is an art dependent on various aspects. At Eclat by Oui, we offer a wide range of luxurious and timeless jewellery that will complement a variety of different personalities and occasions. We’ve pooled our time and energy into creating the most exquisite designs for you, spanning from classic 4 prong ear studs to more glamorous dangling earrings. We want to ensure that the process of picking your perfect pair of earrings is a carefree one instead of a daunting affair. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of three things you should keep in mind when perusing our specially curated collection. 

1. Your Face Shape

Since earrings frame your face, it’s no surprise that the shape of your face is pivotal in choosing the right pair of earrings. There are four shape categories that all faces fall into: oval, round, heart and square:

  1. Oval faces feature a forehead that are as wide as cheekbones. The face narrows from the cheeks to the chin, creating an oval. These faces are complemented by round studs as they create a fuller canvass. Eclat by Oui’s simple but elegant Round Halo Earstuds is a great option.
  2. Heart shaped faces feature a forehead which is wider than the cheekbones and cheeks which taper down to the chin. These faces are complemented by dangling earrings akin to our elongated teardrop Morning Dew Earrings.
  3. Round faces feature a wide expanse across the cheekbones which narrow the slightest at the forehead and chin. These faces are complemented by the illusion created by medium-width dangle earrings. Our elegant Kiera earrings are the perfect match.
  4. Square faces do not narrow much from the cheekbone to the forehead nor the cheekbone to the jaw line. When picking earrings for this face shape, it is important to pick a pair that will not emphasize the edges of the face further. Rounded earrings, such as our Luminate Earrings, will help soften the face. 

For those who desire an understated and timeless look, a pair of stud earrings are the perfect choice for every day wear which complements all face shapes. At Eclat by Oui, we have the option of 4 prong or 6 Prong solitaire ear studs to suit your personal preference. 

2. The Occasion

At Eclat by Oui, we understand that different occasions call for different jewellery. The choice of jewellery you choose to adorn yourself with at events will help shape your image. Therefore, we’ve provided our clients with a range of designs well-suited for formal events, the office or special occasions. For the woman that prefers a classic look in formal events or the office, our 4 or 6 prong studs or round halo ear studs available in 0.5 or 1 carat is the perfect choice. For the modern woman who wants to maintain a professional look, our gorgeous Cluster Marquise Earstuds provides a contemporary take on professionalism.

For romantic occasions, we offer stunning dangling earrings such as Morning Dew or classic pair of Heart Solitaire Earstuds. 

3. Coordinating Hairstyles

There is nothing that pulls together a look more than attention to details. Ensuring that your earrings complement your face but do not contrast your hairstyle will help you achieve a chic and elegant look. For example, when your hair is done up, in a bun or ponytail, a pair of dangling earrings will provide the best choice. Dangling earrings are infamous from getting lost in hair so it’s best to reserve them for done-up hairstyles. The stylish pixie cut is the perfect hairstyle to showcase a pair of ear studs; whether they be the Heart, Cluster Marquis or classic ear studs. The timeless side swept hairstyle perpetuates an elegant look which will be complemented by the romantic curves of our coveted Mountain Dew earrings. 

At Eclat by Oui, we’ve curated our collection of jewellery to satisfy the varying needs of our clients. A perusal of our site will illuminate that we have the finest variety of quality jewellery for every face shape, hairstyle or occasion. Take the time to inspect our collection and we’re positive you’ll find the perfect pair of earrings for you. You may even fall in love with more than one pair.
