Did you know that necklaces are one of the earliest pieces of jewelry that humans have worn? Draping materials around the neck has long been a symbol of ornamentation and decoration for men and women. Today, necklaces are a beautiful statement to a look, and can range in style, length, and detail.
While some women prefer a simple chain necklace, most options have some sort of pendant feature. Pendants are classified as ornaments that are suspended from a necklace, and can include gemstones, crosses, charms, lockets and more. With a blend of trendy and classic styles, pendants can be a focal point of an outfit.
Charm necklaces feature a shape or object that holds meaning for the wearer. Many of these give a personalized look, and tie into the individual’s personality. Initials can represent the wearer’s name or that of a loved one or child. Other shapes like hearts are great for the romantic person, or women who love feminine details.
For those who like to wear their faith on their sleeve, religious pendants such as crosses make beautiful jewelry pieces. In a range of materials and sizes, cross necklaces can be subtle and delicate or bold and chucky. Add a little bling with diamonds or gemstones mixed into the design.
Other symbols represented through pendants include keys and infinity symbols. Keys are a fun way to show that your heart is taken, or that you own the key to your heart. Sometime key jewelry comes in a set with a lock and a key, meant to be worn by two people who love each other. The classic infinity symbol is another trendy pendant choice, as it holds many spiritual meanings. Birthstones are often used in necklaces as a personal touch. Many women love to feel a connection to their jewelry, and wearing their birthstone is a unique way to achieve that.
Necklaces come in a variety of lengths, typically measured in inches. The length you wear is a personal preference, and often determined by which length is most flattering based on your face shape. The placement of pendants on your upper chest should be balanced by the length of your face for the most pleasing look.
While costume jewelry can replicate a look, fine jewelry is the better choice for high quality pieces that will last for decades.
