Top Tips to Pick the Right Necklace Type

The neckline is the most sensuous part of every woman’s body. To highlight the elegance of this part, they wear different quintessential jewelry pieces such as necklaces and pendants- that can probably make them look more gorgeous and attractive.

However, to achieve that perfection and impressive looks, it’s important to pick the right necklace type that complements your style, beauty, and overall personality. After all, an impeccable necklace enhances the beauty of any outfit you wear as well as becomes a focal point of your body.

Therefore, following some right tips and tricks can help you make a successful purchase. At Provence Gems, we have put together a detailed guideline to help you choose necklaces that look exotic on all occasions and dresses.

A Standard Necklace Length Guide to Check Before Purchase:

Every woman who loves buying necklaces and pendants must know that the necklaces are usually sold in inch lengths. So, before you purchase a necklace for yourself, make sure you check its length and your face type so you can exactly buy the one that suits your personality.

  • 14″ Necklace: This is probably the lowest necklace length which fits like a choker as well as adjusts beautifully around the neck.
  • 16″ Necklace: This necklace length usually fits around the neck base just like a collar. For every petite woman, it loosely wraps around the collar of the neck. For a plus-size woman, it might fit like a choker necklace.
  • 18″ Necklace: This is the most popular choice for every woman, and it sits perfectly on the collarbone.
  • 20″ Necklace: This is comparatively a large size that falls below the collarbone.
  • 22″ Necklace: The last size in necklaces that falls at the top of the bust.

Check the Size of your Neck:

Once you follow the length of the necklace, it’s time to check the size of the neck. So, if possible, take some time to make accurate measurements of your neck before purchasing any necklace especially the choker necklace that wraps around your neck. 

The easy way to measure your neck is, get a soft measuring tape and gently wrap it around your neck. Whatever the size of your neck is, make sure you add 2 inches extra to that size as this is the perfect and comfortable length for choker necklaces that are usually available in 14 inches. 

Now add 4 inches to that size as this will be the perfect length of a necklace that might be attached to an 18-inch chain. Remember, choker necklaces usually suit women with longer necks. If you have a shorter neck, a 20 inches necklace will be perfect for you as it will elongate your neck. Some ideal necklace types are 0.2ct Colorless Round Brilliant Cut Moissanite Pendant Necklace and 0.5 Carat DEF Moissanite Necklace that looks perfect on both short neck and long neck women.

Do Not Forget to Consider Height:

Height is another significant element to consider before purchasing a necklace that absolutely flatters your body. If your height is below 5’4”, you will look gorgeous in a 16-to-20-inch necklace. 

However, women with long necklaces usually overwhelm a small frame. Those who fall between 5’4”- 5’7” should choose any type of necklace as their height is perfect enough to wear both chocker and full-length necklaces. The perfect example is this 2ct Dark Gray Round Moissanite Flower-Shape Pendant Necklace that has a medium-chain which can be customized according to your requirement. 

While a tall woman with 5’7” height can wear any length necklace especially long chain necklaces look gorgeous on tall women because they perfectly accentuate their taller frame. For taller women, 2ct Pear Moissanite Solitaire Pendant Necklace is a suitable choice as it has a thin long chain with pear shape moissanite.

What is Your Body Type?

When it comes to wearing necklaces, always keep one thing in mind. People’s eyes will always stop at the specific point where the necklace ends. If you do not want anyone to see that part, make sure you avoid wearing the necklace that ends there.

If you have small busts, a necklace with long layered chains is probably the right fit for you. The necklace-type that sits right below your busts or just exactly at the specific spot must not be considered by full-figured women because the length will not sit appropriately. 

Instead, choose a necklace with a long chain or go for an 18- to 22-inch necklace that sits correctly on the long necklace and usually ends at the waist.

Consider Your Face Type:

Aside from being an important accessory that complements your outfit, the right necklace-type also helps frame your face. Now just like your body type, when you wear an elegant necklace that suits your face would simply accentuate your facial features as well and may change your looks a bit.

If you have a round face, it’s better to avoid wearing short necklaces and chocker types as they will make the roundness of your face more prominent.

However, if you have an oval-shaped face, you can simply wear any necklace-type regardless of its shape or length. It’s an ideal face type, oversized frames and top-heavy frames look dazzling on oval faces.

But if you have a long-shape face, you need to broaden your looks and soften your face shape, so it’s best to wear short-length necklaces. When you wear short necklaces, it won’t keep adding more length to your face. Chocker or princess necklaces are also quite ideal for long-shaped faces.
