How to Choose the Right Necklace?

Time of issue:2022-08-23

Buying a new necklace can be exciting, but it is always worth taking the time to consider not only the look of the pendant but also the overall appearance of the chain before making a purchase.


Not sure where to start when choosing the right length of necklace? Here are some tips to help you get started.


1. Take your height into account

A necklace can be the focal point of everything you wear. Therefore, you should consider choosing a necklace that suits your body type: and one of the best ways to do this is to consider your height. Experts tend to recommend a necklace length of 16 to 20 inches for women under 5 feet 4 inches. Women of shorter stature usually avoid long necklaces as they tend to overwhelm more petite frames.


For those between 5ft 4 and 5ft 7, you can usually wear necklaces of any length, but longer chain necklaces tend to be more suitable for taller women as they accentuate a taller frame.

2. Sticking your neck out

So, as men don't have the same concerns about wardrobe choices or body type, we have some advice for women. To quickly work out the perfect necklace length, measure the extended length (or clasp length and double it) of the necklace you wear most often. This may be the length that suits you best, or the length that best fits your wardrobe.


For a more measured process, think about your whole body - from your face shape to your bust to your height to your general body shape.


But start with your neck. All necklaces actually touch your neck, so what happens there is important. There's the length in your neck, there's width in your neck. Some necks have wrinkles. Long necks can wear almost anything. Short necks and wrinkled necks have issues that need to be addressed, so not every necklace will fit. Remember, as with any "general" advice, there are always exceptions, so it's best to wear a necklace if possible.  


3. Your Wardrobe

Your everyday wardrobe is another important part of your decision on the length of your necklace. Let's stick with the turtleneck jumper as an example. For most women, long chains or beaded strings will look great with a turtleneck jumper, but if you are short or full-figured, they may not. Once you have decided what you will wear, just make sure that the length of necklace you choose will add to the overall look and enhance your appearance.

There are many things to consider when getting a new necklace right for yourself. We've already discussed neck, face shape and body type, and a little about how your outfit will affect the length of the dress you choose. But with all of these plans, you may come across something that you like and must have. Taking all factors into consideration, only you can really decide if this cool necklace, which may not be the perfect length, is really for you.


4. Necklace designs

The jewellery industry has standard necklace lengths in inches, usually an even number rather than an odd number. However, chains can be cut to any length and custom designed pieces can be anything the designer decides.


Whether you're after a modern look or a timeless classic, you have different options when it comes to design. You can check out bespoke jewellery, where the piece is made individually for you, or you can restore old and inherited pieces and customise them in your own way.


If you are looking for a diamond, you will need to consider the 4 C's of cut, colour, carat and clarity and polishing it will really bring out the best in your necklace.
