Most people think that jewelry is used to enhance an outfit. But, many people do not know that the right kind of jewelry can be used to enhance a good feature, minimize a negative feature or even change the way you look.

For example, earrings can be used to compliment the shape of one’s face.

Long straight earrings will often minimize the appearance of a strong jaw.

Shorter, earrings worn close to the face can be used to offset a long face.

Remember to select your earrings carefully. They may very well be your most important jewelry item. They can reflect light and flattering color onto your face.

The longest necklace a large-chested woman should wear is 22 inches. Any longer and it starts to puddle in the cleavage.

Large pieces, worn close to the neck can compliment a larger bust-line and take the focus away from it. Very long thin chains will work well with someone who is a bit flat chested. Remember the flappers?

Chokers, especially, can hide a multitude of sins, when those sins are located in the neck area. But be careful to make sure that the width of your choker is appropriate to the length of your neck. A very wide choker will only exaggerate a short neck.

Bracelets emphasize the hands. If you have good hands, a smaller, thinner bracelet will bring the eye towards your hands, especially if you are wearing a ring or two. But a larger bracelet will draw the eye away from the hand. A good camouflage if you need one.
