Necklace Education

 In general, a necklace is defined as any type of chain or length of precious metal or gems. They are also available in pendant styles that feature a single jewel, pearl or charm, usually suspended from a chain. A pearl strand is a length of closely strung pearls.

Metal Chains

Chains go with everything. A fine platinum chain in a choker length will add just a touch of shine. Consider giving her an 18-inch, sterling silver or 18k gold chain to add an element of visual interest to her wardrobe.

Necklaces

Necklaces come in an assortment of styles including heavier chains, links, and braids. Some necklaces feature a fixed set of diamonds or gemstones, where others have stones that run their entire length. Pendants feature charms or jewels that are suspended from a chain.

Pearl Strands

Pearl strands are an essential element to a woman's jewelry wardrobe. She can wear one with a dress to create a classy look.

Solitaire Pendants

The simple design of a solitaire pendant allows all the attention to focus on a beautiful diamond, pearl, or gemstone. These timeless pieces can be worn with a dress or with jeans.

Choose the Right Necklace Length

When selecting a necklace or pendant, consider that the length will determine where it will lie on her chest.

16 in. Choker length: Just above collarbones. Emphasizes her neckline.

18 in. Princess length: Hangs over collarbones. The most common length.

24 in. Opera length: Over blouse or dress. A dramatic length.
