Gemstone Necklaces: How To Choose A Necklace Length That's Ideal For You

How To Show Off Your Necklace At Its Best

With so many necklace lengths, styles, and colored gemstone options, choosing the most flattering necklace length for you can be a difficult task. What type of necklace style will best suit you? Which gemstone type should you choose? One necklace will never look the same on every single person who wears it and there are many different reasons why jewelry looks slightly different on each individual.

How to Choose the Right Necklace Length

One of the first things to take into consideration is, obviously, your neck. Some necks are long, some short, some may be wrinkled or wider than others. As your necklace will be around your neck, this is important. So, let's discuss how to choose the right length necklace for your look.

A choker will usually work well on a long, slim neck, whilst it can make a shorter neck look wider and more concise. Chokers adorned with gemstones are tipped to be the next big thing in 2018 and can really give a plain dress the 'wow' factor. Wrinkled necks should avoid chokers too as they will draw the eye to the neck - go for a longer necklace with an eye-catching stone to draw the eye there instead.

Longer length necklaces work exceptionally well with the addition of a gemstone pendant, which draws the eye and makes a statement. In general, necklaces tend to emphasize the area where they fall on the body, so make sure your necklace falls somewhere you don't mind being noticed!

When choosing a necklace length, a good tip is to measure one of your existing necklaces which you feel is the right length for you. Usually, a necklace of around 22 inches will sit at the bust line. Consider that your height will affect this and shorter women may be overwhelmed by chunky necklaces and bold designs.

Your Face Shape and Necklace Lengths

Another consideration is the shape of your face. Generally, longer necklace lengths will elongate and are great for a rounder face, while long faces will be balanced out by a shorter length.

Necklace Styles

Secondly, let's look at the style of necklace. Your necklace should compliment and flatter you, illuminating your good points and drawing attention away from those areas you are less comfortable with. Choosing a delicate style with a smaller gemstone or pendant usually works well for petite ladies and emphasizes their small frame.

A necklace with multiple strands or a feature piece usually flatters larger women by drawing the attention to the necklace itself. A really eye catching gemstone can make all the difference.
If in doubt, it's usually a good idea to go with the classic princess length which is designed to sit on the collarbone and will match almost any outfit and body type.

Most importantly, choose a necklace which you will be comfortable wearing - this will ensure that the one you choose looks natural and compliments your personality. Take into account the design and the material used to make the necklace and choose one that has personal meaning - this will make your necklace feel special and exclusive to you.
