Best Earrings for a Square Face

You know you have a square face if the width of your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are all almost parallel. You're in good company, famous beauties Gwyneth Paltrow and Selma Hayek both have square faces.


A mid- to long-length hoop is stunning on a square face. The contrast of the round hoop suits and softens the angles of the square-shaped face very well.

Round & Button Shapes

Similar to the logic of hoop style, a round style earring, like a pearl, will pop nicely when juxtaposed with a square face.

Looks to Avoid

Those with square-shaped faces should avoid any styles that are too squared, geometric or looks with sharp angles or edges. These will call attention to the sharper angles of your face.

You'll find hundreds of fabulous earring styles that are perfect for the heart-shaped face online at or at your local Zales store.
