What's so special about large earrings is that they add that extra *oomph* to any outfit. They're excellent statement earrings and really bring attention to a pretty face.
You can find them in various styles - from the wooden beaded earring for the casual gal to Glam 'n Shine cubic zirconia crystal chandelier earrings.
How to Wear Large Chandelier Earrings
Select the right style for your face shape
The shape and volume of the earrings decide if they'll look good on you or not. However, if you have small facial features it's important to select the best chandelier size that complement them.

Scaling the earrings with your facial features:
If you have small features then large chandelier earrings will make them look smaller. They look best on average to large facial features.
But you can make this earring style work for you if you choose a pair that has one or two strings of "arms" with small beads to them. Basically, avoid the full, cascading styles.
How to choose chandelier earrings for your face shape:
- A Round face shape looks best in slim and long (below the chin) chandeliers because the length helps draw the attention up and down,
making your face look smaller (slimmer) in comparison. So avoid the fuller style.
- If you have an
Oblong face shape stick to shorter
earrings (at jaw length) with volume.
- If you have a wider cheekbone and forehead compared to your jawline - a
Diamond or Heart shape - then opt for earrings that are wider at the bottom
(for example rounder beads on the end of each arm).
- However if you have a wide jawline and narrow forehead - a
triangular shape - choose chandeliers with a wider top (like earrings
with wider or bigger shaped hook connectors).
- If you have a Square face then focus on elongating it (below the jawline) and soften the edges with round and soft chandelier shapes.

Want ultimate comfort?
Especially when you'll be wearing them for many hours? Then go for well-balanced chandeliers with the weight evenly spread throughout
the earrings. Imbalance in the volume of the earrings is one of the reasons why they pull so much and hurt your ears.
Chandelier earrings suit women of all ages
Yes, even over 40! It's all up to your personal style and confidence.

If you have a Bohemian or Eclectic personal style then let it show through the way you dress with multi-color chandelier earrings!
For the rest - I recommend you to look for modest earring styles with a maximum of two colors.
Like for example, sleek silver chandelier earrings with beautiful cubic zirconia or diamond beads.
Opt for quality for durability
If you want them to last, look for chandelier earrings with a thick gold coating, such as gold-filled (GF), Vermeil (gold on top of sterling silver) real gold (10 - 14kt) and sterling silver.
The metal coating of gold-filled and Vermeil is heavily bonded and often purer than cheap and thin plated earrings. They cost more
but last a long time!
