Necklace, chains and pendants for women – A fascination worth exploring
To put it in a nutshell, whatever jewellery you wear around the neck is a necklace. It may be a piece of ribbon, string, a simple chain, or elaborately designed, crafted in metal, cloth, wood, beads or stone with or without additional hanging elements.
Pendants are wearable ornaments that can be added to the necklace chain, hanging from a bail or loop. A pendant that’s attached to the necklace is called an integrated pendant.
Happy News Flash
You can sport any number of pendants on your chain at one time! What’s more, you can layer several pendants on chains of varying lengths for a hip look, or just for the pleasure of it!
Best necklace chains suited for pendants
When choosing a chain for a specific pendant style, keep in mind that the chain length and width can compliment or mute the pendant you wear it with.
Looking for a chain with the perfect balance of strength and beauty?
Simple chains such as cable, figaro, curb and box chains look great around your neck while firmly supporting additional pendants. Minimalist in style, yet with a charm of their own, these chains combine well with almost any pendant design.
Pendants on delicate chains?
It isn’t a good idea to suspend pendants on ultra delicate chains like herringbone and snake chains. Though pretty to wear alone, they are not the most robust to carry a pendant.
How long should the necklace with the pendant be?
“A pendant isn’t worth its weight in gold until in full view!” And yes, it needs to be seen bright and sharp to make an impression.
Remember that a pendant will pull a chain downward into a V-shape, creating a visual point of interest where it rests.
To strike it just right, it should end at exactly the right spot on your torso. The simple rule of thumb to find the correct chain length is to begin by adding two or more centimetres (or inches) to your neck size measurement. This will be your comfortable short chain length.
Necklace and chain styling tip:
Wearing the exact size of your neck circumference will make the necklace appear too tight and be uncomfortable to wear.
