How to Pick the Best Frames for Diamond Faces
When you’re in the market for new glasses, it can be stressful trying to sift through shelf after shelf of frames in eyeglass boutiques or page after page of frames on-line. Thankfully, visiting a professional eye care office can make the process a lot easier. Trained professionals can help guide you toward the glasses that will look best for your face shape. If you have a diamond shaped face, there are a lot of options that will look great on you. While the professionals can help a great deal, it’s always nice to know a little bit about how professional eyeglass stylists go about helping you choose the right frame shape to fit your pace.
Different Frame Measurements
Frames are measured in a many different ways, all of which contribute to how they look when they’re on someone’s face. The most obvious measurements are the height and width of a frame—but there are several other considerations that can have equally as dramatic an impact on how frames will look when you try them on Other measurements include things like where the frame’s temple attachment is located (high, low, or mid-level) and the distance between the center of the lens (where the pupil should be located) just to name a couple also have impact how those frames look when you place them on your face. Depending on the shape of your face, different types of frames will be more or less flattering. How can you find the best shape for your face?
Perfect Frames for Diamond-Shaped Faces
People who have diamond-shaped faces are people whose faces are narrow at the jaw and at the forehead, and have prominent cheek bones The goal when selecting a frame to fit the diamond face shape is to use the frame to broaden the appearance of the forehead. Shapes that work best are Oval shaped frames, smaller rectangular shaped frames and for women a cat eye upsweeping shaped frame works really well. You’ll also want to pay attention to the rims of the frames. Specifically look for frames with a darker upper rim and a lighter, thinner lower rim or even a rimless lower rime (ask your eye care professional to explain what a rimless frame looks like) to help balance the face shape.
People who have diamond-shaped faces should, however, avoid frames with a dark bridge or darker lower rims as this has the effect of drawing the face inward and down toward the broader more prominent cheek bones.
Professional and clinically on target. My wife finally has received excellent care after being examined at Rosin. Highly recommend. Thank you.
I loved my visit here. I had a great doctor and I highly recommend her. She made the visit easy and smooth but was very detailed in her work. She was very open to my suggestions and gave me lots of options as far as lenses and gave me advice on how to improve my eyesight. The best visit with an Optometrist that I have ever had!
