Below are some of the tips that will help you pick just the right pair.

1) What is your face shape?

Do you have a round face or an oval face? Understand your profile.

Asymmetrical jhumkas look good on round faced women while hoop earrings with rounder bells look good on slimmer faces. The key is to know that you need to create an illusion of a slimmer face by wearing elongated earrings and create the illusion of a fuller face by adding volume to slimmer face.

2) What is the occasion?

Are you heading out for a casual ethnic day at work or to a wedding? Pick your jhumka according to the occasion.

Antique jhumkas, Kundan jhumkas and heavy gold and silver jhumkas are great when you have to attend a wedding and need to look all dolled up.

For casual days, colored jhumkas and terracotta jhumkas are appropriate.
