Prescription glasses help you correct your vision and style your eyes effortlessly if you get the right pair that compliments your face type.

There are so many designs of frames to buy from especially when you are shopping for glasses online that the array of textures, colours and shapes might just baffle you.

A diamond face shape is classified by a wider middle and a narrow top and bottom. Like full cheeks that sit in line with your broad chin.

Say if you drew a shape of the outline of your face the middle would be extending out forming a clear diamond shape. This is one the rarest face shapes to find but is also the most high and dramatic.

Well fret not, the great news is that there are many options you can pick from that will suit your face type.

The idea of styling a diamond face is to pull attention to the eyes and buff the wider edges, by softening the angular features of your face.

Here are top picked glasses that will perfectly compliment your cheekbones!

Made in wide rimmed acetate the frame is lightweight and durable. The arms are encased in shimmering acetate that add a final oomph to it.


A flattering shape for a diamond face, these frames are angular and the extended temples add a creative elegance to the overall look. The use of black and gold is a classic make heads turn design.The indented arms are a added twist.
