Our Jewellery Makeover Consultant would be happy to guide you through the jewellery trends and various options available at your disposal and help you choose styles and designs that would be perfect for you.

    Often, women wonder why one piece of jewellery looks stunning on someone but the same style may not suit their own face. Choosing the right design and style of jewellery is as important as buying clothes that suit your body type. Many a times, coloured gemstones complement your eyes and skin, just as how some coloured outfits look better on you. Whatever be your choice of jewellery, it is meant to reveal your inner diva. Chances are you’ll intuitively know what suits you and what doesn’t! Faux jewellery can easily be borrowed from friends but how do you experiment with real jewellery and buy the one that really brings out your best features?

    Here are a few tips that would help you effortlessly pick the styles and designs that are perfect for you.

    Let’s get started with a face type

    To determine your face type, pull back your hair into a bun or tight pony. This will help you accurately figure out your face type. Stand in front of the mirror and identify your face type as one of these shown below. You may not find an exact match, so look for the shape that is closest to your face type.

    Oval Face

    Oval Face

    You’re lucky if you have an oval shaped faced! Considered as the ‘ideal’ face type, the Oval face is well balanced, not overly angular or rounded. The face structure is the widest near the cheekbones and narrows slowly as you go down the jaw line.

    • Being a soft face type, most jewellery styles like circles, hoop or drop earrings and chokers necklaces look great!
    Square Face

    Square Face

    Once of the most common face types, the square shape appears to be sharply angular at corners. The jaw is seemingly sculpted and sharp just like Hollywood Actress Lucy Liu or Singer Rihanna.

    • Drop earrings help in creating an illusion of added length which suits this face type well.
    Round Face

    Round Face

    Widest at the cheekbones, this face type looks exactly as the name suggests. Typically, this shape is wider than the oval shape.

    • To add length to the face, tear drop earrings or long necklaces are styles that accentuate the features.
    Triangular Face

    Triangular Face

    Similar to the shape of a triangle, this face type is longer at the cheekbones and chiselled at the jaw line.

    • Button style jewellery and shorter necklaces suit this shape quite a lot.
    Heart Face

    Heart Face

    Heart shaped faces are wider at the temple and narrow at the chin. The cheekbones usually attract attention as they have soft curves at the jaw.

    • To balance the narrow chin, this face type requires earring styles that are wider at the bottom. Studs, Button Earrings and inverted triangles add some poise to the face.
    Diamond Face

    Diamond Face

    Quite uncommon and angular, this face type is characterized with narrow temples and jaw. The face is structured in such a way that the length is widest across the cheekbones. Since the face is very sharp, it can carry more stunning and dramatic designs.

    • Cut crystals look gorgeous on this face type.

    Once you’ve found your match, we’ll bring to you a wide range of earrings and necklaces from our own collection that will complement you and your outfits.

    Determining Skin Tone

    India’s diverse climate and geographical terrain has led to Indians developing varied skin tones. Northerners may have cooler skin hues and as we move from north to south, closer to the equator, skin tones appear to change. Skin tones, textures and hair colour become important features that let you decide what metal colour suits and highlights the colour of your skin.

    Commonly, cooler skin tones have noticeable pinking or rosy red undertones to their complexion. If your skin appears to have a yellow or golden undertone against a white background, then you may have a warm skin tone.

    • Pearls and diamonds favour those who have cooler skin tones.
    • If you’re looking for gemstone rings and jewellery, pinks, blues, purples work best for this kind of skin.
    • When it comes to choosing the right metal, platinum, silver and white gold rings and jewellery goes well.
    • On the other hand, earthy tones such as brown, gold, oranges and turquoise colours paired with either yellow gold or rose gold metal complement this skin tone.

    What’s your hand type?

    Everyone is unique and so are their physical appearances. Although, hands and fingers are never given so much importance as the face, they make quite an impression if you wish to flaunt the ring on it. The length of the finger coupled with its width lets you find the perfect match. There’s a ring type that flatters even the hand and fingers. In such cases, even the nails become a vital aspect in choosing that dazzling ring.

    • Longer and slender fingers can easily sport wide bands and princess or round diamond cuts. Slender fingers have an added advantage as they tend to make the centre stone appear bigger than it already is. Cluster rings and asymmetrical designs suit the wider and broader fingers.
    • Short fingers need to look at options like Marquise or Pear cut diamonds and gemstones that elongate the length. Sleek bands make the fingers seem slender too!
    • Even your hands are important. If you have small hands, it is best to keep the size of the ring demure and petite. If you have knotty hands or big knuckles, it is best to wear a ring that draws attention to it than to the knuckles. Heavier rings with wide bands do the trick for such finger types.

    As you must have realized, jewellery makeover is a crucial aspect that helps accentuates the features you love and draws attention away from those features you’d prefer to downplay.
