Wearing a pendant Wear a pendant necklace with a v- neck to fill in the space. Look for a necklace that just hits the sternum. Wear a pendant necklace with a crew neck to soften the boyish lines.
Wearing a Choker Off the shoulder top: sweaters with wide open necklines look best with chokers, a choker will not interfere with the dramatic scoop of the neck Strapless dress: chokers look best when on bare skin. Chokers will exaggerate a wide or short neck
Multistrand Jackets: multistrand necklaces fill the neckline, and make the neck appear longer. Bright colors help liven up a conservative jacket. Dress shirts: a plain shirt with a bright multistrand necklace will create contrast.
Lariats With a Tunic, the necklace will fill in the open area. Shorter strands draw the eye to the opening of the tunic. Wear with a plain camisole for a dramatic and more dressed up look.
Tips A necklace that cascades over the bust line will make the bust appear larger. Small pendants are a good choice if you are petite. Big, heavy necklaces will weigh you down. People with long necks look great in any kind of necklaces. But, avoid chokers, which elongate the neck even more Short necked people should wear delicate pieces that hang between the neck and chest.
Tips If wearing a crooked lined shirt, it may be best to go without a necklace. "One dramatic piece of jewelry is a good option for plus sizes," says Brooklyn jewelry designer Allyson Smith.
Untangling Necklaces On a piece of wax paper, place a few drops of baby oil on the chain. Then use pins to pull apart the knot.
Take Care of Your Necklaces Clean non-porous Jewelry like pearls and opal by soaking it in warm soapy water for ten minutes Store necklaces separately so that they do not scratch each other Put on your jewelry after applying makeup and hairspray When swimming, chlorine can damage gemstones, and gold. Many stones fade or change color when left in the sun. Always store bead necklaces (such as lapis, pearls, etc) flat as silk stretches over time. Also, this avoid kinks and knotting various chains together.
