A Beginner’s Guide to Necklaces

A necklace is a piece of jewellery that is worn around the neck. They come in a wide range of styles and are typically made with different materials. They can also be layered with other types of jewellery to create a stylish look.

There are several different words used to describe the neck-area jewelry that can be found on women including necklace, choker, pendant and chain. Depending on the individual, some of these terms are often used interchangeably. However, in order to understand the differences between each of these terms it is necessary to know the basics about each one and how they are used in the jewelry industry.

1. Identify the main difference between a necklace, a pendant and a chain

A pendant is a small charm or token of jewellery that hangs from a chain with a loop. It can be removed or put on to change the length of the necklace.

2. Generally, pendants are smaller than a necklace and can be worn with more than one if you want to mix and match the necklaces in your collection.

3. Compared to a camilla necklace, pendants usually have more meaning and are therefore usually considered a statement piece of jewellery.

4. Pendants can be found in Silver, Gold and Pearl but are more common to find gemstone or pearl pendants as opposed to chains that are just plain silver or gold.

5. Necklaces can vary in length but are mainly between 15-16″ and 30″.

A necklace can range in length from a short “Choker Style” necklace that is around 15-16 inches to a longer “Collar Style” necklace which is between 20-22 inches and a little bit longer if it is a princess or matinee necklace.

6. Bib necklaces are also a popular type of necklace and can be found in a range of different layered chains and can be worn with off the shoulder tops as well as dresses.

7. Riviere necklaces are another type of necklace that can be found in a wide range of designs but are usually comprised of one or two rows of precious or semi-precious stones that gradually get smaller as they reach the back.

8. Graduated strands of pearls are another type of necklace that can be worn at a range of different lengths.

Traditionally, graduated strands of pearls were popular in the 1940s and 1950s and are a great choice for someone who wants a timeless classic that they can pass down to their children or grandchildren.

9. If you are looking for a statement piece of jewellery then you should consider buying a necklace with a large or multiple pendants on it to make the most impact.

10. The best pendants for a necklace are those that are meaningful or represent something important to the wearer.

11. A necklace should always drape nicely and be able to cover the neckline effectively.

A necklace should be able to be worn in all occasions from going out to the movies to shopping with friends. It should be able to hang comfortably without twisting or distorting at the neckline and should be able to be adjusted to fit the shape of the neck and the wearer’s preference.
