Are you Wearing the Right Pair?

Tips on the right earring shape for you.

Which earring shape should you be wearing with your face shape? Fair Trade JewelryOne of the best things about being a woman is that we are all delightfully different. Some of us are short, some tall. Hair comes in soft waves, tight curls, pin-straight locks, and everything in between. We are all beautiful in our own unique way and want to be the best version of ourselves, inside and out.

When we know that what we are wearing works well with our body shape and makes us feel comfortable in our own skin, being confident and bold becomes effortless. It’s easy to understand why many of us spend so much time choosing the perfect outfit in the morning. We want to leave the house and meet the world looking and feeling our best. Since our faces are the first part of us that most people notice, why not put as much consideration into our earrings as we do the cut of our dress or color of our shoes? Earrings are a fun, easy way to compliment your unique beauty and bring variety to your wardrobe.
