The shape of your face and your body type

The shape of your face and your morphology are also quite important criteria for choosing your costume jewelry. If you have a round face for example, the ideal would be to turn to dangling earrings which will elongate your face.

However, if you are a little long, don't hesitate to wear imposing jewelry to highlight your figure.

The quality of the materials
