THE BEST GLASSES FOR DIAMOND FACE SHAPES

THE BEST GLASSES FOR DIAMOND FACE SHAPES

Now that we are here, discussing the “best glasses for diamond shaped faces”, trust me, there is no such thing.

Style is subjective. Style is not determined by ob​​jective rules or standards, but by the unique expression of each person’s personality and creativity. If the glasses you choose make you feel at ease, happy, and confident, they will look great.

But we understand that some people may be interested in learning more about how certain styles of glasses can enhance the features of their diamond face shape. We hope that this information will help you recognise the traits of a diamond face and decide which glasses might accentuate those distinguishing qualities. You can refer to our face shape guide to find out the right style of glasses that goes with your face shape.

What do we mean by Diamond Face Shape?

A diamond face shape is one of the most uncommon and distinctive face shapes. It is characterized by a pointed chin, wide and prominent cheekbones, a narrow jawline, and a narrow forehead. People with diamond face shapes often want to find glasses that can balance their sharp features and highlight their cheekbones.

One of the rarest and most recognisable face shapes is the diamond.



How to check if you have a diamond face shape or not?

Snap a selfie or check yourself out in the mirror. Make sure that your hair isn’t obstructing the outline of your face. Now I have with me a list of common features which will help you determine, whether you have the diamond face cut or not?

  • High & prominent cheekbones
  • Small forehead
  • Pointed chin
  • Well-built angular lines

To wrap it up in a few words, the key features to identify this shape is the presence of angles and features.

Honestly, feel a little special if you have the diamond face cut because it is one of the rarest face shapes. There are celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Hurley that have the diamond face shape.

When it comes to face shape, remember that everyone is unique, and most people have characteristics that correspond to more than one of the many diverse face forms. (This is why you shouldn't get too caught up in styling yourself according to your face shape.)

The Best Glasses Shape for a Diamond Face

Now that we have determined that we have one of the rarest face shapes on this globe, that means if we have to accessorize ourselves, we should be very accurate as to what we choose. When we usually shop for glasses based on their face shape, we have to consider different styles of frames that go, just about right, with our facial features. We can either use a frame that can draw attention towards our unique facial traits, or we can compliment our facial traits with glasses that have an appealing contrast.

I have told you before, I am all for styling the way you want. Any shape can pull off any frame shapes, but if you want to be pitch perfect and need my suggestions, well, here they are!!

1. Cat-Eye Glasses

Cat-eye glasses are a great choice for diamond-shaped faces as they help soften the angularity of the face while accentuating the cheekbones. And we do have just the perfect one for you.

LANCASTER 3
  • Black & Caramel Brown
  • Aqua blue & Tortoiseshell
  • Black & Mint Green
  • Cherry Red & Cream White
Marc Fabien LANCASTER 3 £79.99

As quirky as it can be, Lancaster is an amazing blend of colors. The rims of this frame have a combination of black and mint green. Both these colors come together to make them perfect for your entire day. The simplicity of the rims is exceptionally balanced by tortoiseshell temples.

Also, the detailing on the extended upswept characteristics of the spectacles appears appropriate with the little forehead and the extra-wide cheeks. Cat eyes with jeweled temples, vivid colors, and patterns are thought to be the best glasses for diamond face shapes.

The curves and high angles of cat eye glasses complement the similar features of the diamond face shape.

A rimless or semi-rimless pair of glasses works great for a diamond-shaped face.

2.Round Eyeglasses

Having a diamond face shape and using round eyeglasses will help you balance your features. Your prominent jawline, chin, and cheekbones are softened with round frames.

Oval frames, which contrast with your angular features, are also a wonderful alternative for persons with diamond faces. They go nicely with both antique and modern looks and are frequently the first option for people with diamond-shaped features. Cat-eye frames are another choice that might complement diamond-shaped faces.

My recommendation is go for our latest arrival, BEOLEY 3.

BEOLEY 3
  • Champagne Gold
  • Silver
  • Black
  • Rose Gold
Tom Archer BEOLEY 3 £59.99

This frame is ultra-light and classic, and trust me, Beoley is a perfect pair for diamond face shape. This spherical spectacle, both rimless and in full-rim options can draw attention to the cheeks. Being a sleek and slender frame, they look very attractive on people with diamond face shape.

3.Oval glasses

Understand this, oval spectacles have curves that contrast angular features and are somewhat broader, complementing the cheekbones and balancing out the proportions of a diamond face.

Lens rims with rounded edges (at the bottom corners) serve to balance out the diamond face cut and assists to soften the sharp features as well. FYI, these are also known as walnut glasses.

If you want to add some flair to your style, consider a pair of oval spectacles with decorations on the sides. They can attract attention towards you and your eyes and provide a glamorous touch to your outfit.

Now, I have just the perfect pair for you. The BIRCH 1.

BIRCH 1
  • Gunmetal
  • Silver
Tom Archer BIRCH 1 £69.99

The soothing frame of Birch elevates the look by adding smooth curves to the edgy face shape like diamond.

Apart from this, these frames make you look intellectual and smart. Wear them with your professional outfit and turn all heads on you during a meeting. The gunmetal color in a lighter tone gives a modish and luxurious tinge to the Birch.

4.Browline Glasses

Browline glasses give the face a defined appearance. Its thick tortoise shell rims provide a strong line over the eyes, drawing emphasis to the spectacles.

The rimless bottom of the eyeglasses complements the skin and draws attention to the cheekbones. The top-heavy design of browline frames complements diamond-shaped features by diverting attention away from the jawline and generating contrast with your cheekbones.

These glasses are easily elegant and offer a retro vibe to any outfit.

If you are a person who wants to always look classy, then look no further than the ROB TA3.
