Necklaces have been worn for thousands of years and have acquired different meanings over time, symbolizing the love shared between two people, being a token of affiliation or political belonging, or even to express one’s faith in the classiest way possible.
How to choose the right necklace for you
Necklaces bring attention to the collarbone and are a subtle, yet perfect addition to any outfit. Plus, they come in a variety of different styles and designs. The right necklace can be the only item you need to complement and upgrade any look in no time.
Firstly, take into account the necklace size
In order to find the right one for you, think of what kind of necklace would perfectly express your style and personality. Ask yourself what you wish to convey by wearing it in the first place. That part is entirely up to you. Do you want a charming sexy collar, or a basic subtle chain?
Usually, bolder and daring people fancy shorter length necklaces, while medium-sized chains are a great fit for classic traditional styles. In turn, casual and hippie lovers usually go for longer necklaces, as they complement the boho style.
When in doubt, opt for a mid-sized necklace, as it can work as the perfect match to any kind of occasion. Then, the next thing you want to look for is the metal type, in order to find out which metal naturally offers the best hue that would be the perfect fit for your skin tone, enhancing your beauty even more.
Choose the necklace metal type
Nothing compares to gold in terms of this metal’s durability, quality and reputation. A gold necklace comes with the added benefit that you can choose among yellow, white and rose gold. Speak to one of our experts to decide which kind of gold will be the perfect fit for you.

Sterling silver necklaces
If you’re not a fan of gold - or if you’re simply a silver lover instead - a wonderful, most popular alternative is to go with sterling silver necklaces. Some people simply love the way it looks on the skin. In any case, sterling silver is a reliable and lasting metal; hence its popularity.
Common necklace designs
After deciding on the most suitable length for your necklace and the metal type, the only thing leftis finding the perfect design. Here are some of the main necklace designs and styles in the jewelry industry:
Layered chain necklaces
Layered chains are a composition of different chains, harmonized to perfection on top of one another. Although this style does not allow for much change in its design, it is known for making your neck and your collarbone look beautiful as it delicately sculpts them.
Defining the material of your pendant
Firstly, what do you want your pendant to look like? What’s the occasion you’ll be wearing it for? Do you wish to go for a basic, everyday style look? Or do you want to put on a flashy outfit? Also, what kind of material do you like or which of those match your skin? As a rule of thumb, pendants that feature yellow and rose are a perfect addition to warmer skin undertones as they harmonize with them effortlessly; on the other hand, white gold, sterling silver, and platinum look superb on both fairer and neutral skin undertones.
Pendant chains are super versatile and can be worn with any kind of pendant that matches them. You can mix and match different pendants playing with combinations and letting your creativity run wild - or simply adjusting pendants to the right occasion. Either way, you can never go wrong with pendant chains. So, let’s take a look at some of these beauties. That way, you can find inspiration on how to create different combinations for various looks. Everyone has their favorite necklace they can combine with more than one pendant. Pendants are key jewelry additions because they can be mixed and matched with so many different necklaces. Unless the necklace itself is flashy, pendants are the ones that get all the attention. And the best part about it is that this choice is entirely up to you!
