Necklaces For Different Necklines

necklaces-for-different-necklines copy

Ever notice how the most eye-catching necklace becomes an eye-sore when it’s worn with the wrong clothing neckline? Do you do a double take when you see a woman in turtleneck with a choker and you wonder how she is still breathing and not turning blue? Or you are excited by the lariat you see in a jewelry store which the salesperson helps you on with over you chunky textured crew neck sweater? Or do you walk out the store empty handed when you think a savvier sales associate might have asked if you were wearing a tank underneath? Then suggest you try it on like that, while she explains the other necklines you can wear with it with. Or, how it’s long enough to double-up and work with double the fashion?

It’s not always easy to choose the perfect silhouette in a necklace to work with the right top of a gown, sweater, shirt, jacket or a dress neckline.  It’s instinctive but it also gets easier the more options you show, and learn how to follow the lines of both the shape of the jewel and the shape of the top. There are also a number of necklaces that can work with a variety of necklines, some more versatile than others which makes it easier for you to add to your jewelry collection a little more slowly. Unless you plan on walking the red carpet soon, our advice is to invest in the styles that can work with a deep V-neck for day and a strapless sweetheart neckline for evening, as one example.

For this blog, we will try to simplify the choices and offer suggestions for the following necklines and show the best necklaces at Gabriel & Co. that best matches up with them. However, you should think of this as a template—one that will help you visualize and choose the styles that will complement other styles in your clothing wardrobe. And, we are always here to help you style and curate your collection.
