Talking about jewelry pieces, women never run out of them, their wardrobes are always loaded with plenty of jewelry pieces contrasting their outfits and necklaces are one of them. These jewelry pieces enhance your attire and give maintain beauty all day long.
Necklaces are said to be in existence since most ancient civilizations as their origins are concluded to be 25000 years ago with their first ever discovery being made in a cave located in Monaco. These discovered necklaces were created from fish bones. But in these latest times, these jewelry pieces are not made from fish bones anymore because necklaces are being created from many different materials with different designs.
A Brief History of Necklaces
As we discussed previously, the oldest necklaces were made from fish bones but as time flew the raw materials for creating these necklaces also changed and the necklaces were made from natural shells, stones, and teeth of dead animals. These raw materials, later on, were substituted with pearls, beads, gemstones, etc. Beads made from glass and polished pottery were used by the ancient Egyptians to create the beads.
After many decades these jewelry designs witnessed modifications and the pendant was invented. Within a very short period of time, the pendant became very popular among the Egyptians followed by the Romans and Greeks as well. The popularity of pendants increased so much that it was even considered a protective charm against evil for the wearer.
Necklaces again witnessed a popularity-gaining phase when they started to become a sign of wealthy social status. But soon after holding the popularity status for such a long time, the popularity started diminishing because of lace collars and high-neck clothes.
Now that we have examined the short description and history of the necklaces let us now examine how to style them according to your outfit’s neckline.
This crew neckline is also known as a bib collar neckline because of its round and closed-neck-fitting neckline. As this neckline is not completely closed neckline it has a small empty area for your neck to be visible. To fill this gap you can wear a jewelry piece with a tabular pendant design at the center, or you can also experiment with another styling tip of stacking up some chains.
This pendant design will look best in the empty space of the neckline.
Have you ever come across the word layering necklace? If not, here is its brief, it is a kind of necklace with a thin chain and different types of patterns all across the chain. These necklace designs and boat neck necklines are made for each other and will make you rock your 9-5 work routine.
This neckline type is already completely closed-fitted, so choosing a neckpiece that stays on your outfit is important. Neckpieces with medium-sized pendants with minimal chains will just do fine.
As the name suggests the scoop necklines consist of a large U-shape. To fill up this large U-shape select a heavy pendant design that adds up a nice volume to your outfit with looking voluminous. Besides these necklace designs, you can also try out styling your neckline with double-chain necklaces, or layered necklaces also.
“Geometric-patterned necklace for a geometric-shaped neckline”. Always remember this thumb rule and the necklaces will create a look for your outfit. Pendant designs till your collarbone will give a bold and confident look.
In these types of dresses, your neck is completely exposed and they have always been the best to give you a bold look. Chokers are the best to work with for strapless dresses and they will also add a dynamic touch.
V-shaped necklines have always been a universally favorite. These necklines are super easy and really quick to style. While searching for a neckpiece to match the V-shped neckline, opt for a v-shaped neckpiece or triangular-shaped pendant. These neckpieces will give your outfit a smart vibe.
“Style as the shoulder goes”. Follow this thumb rule while choosing a necklace for your outfit. A Dangling Pendant necklace or asymmetrical pendant design will work well with a shoulder-drop neckline.
Halter necklines are the new sweethearts for millennial and Gen Z women because of their heart-shaped necklines. To make your outfit more attractive and appealing, try to style your halter neckline with sleeky pendants or pointy triangular pendant designs.
Turtle neck necklines and collared-neck necklines are almost the same, the only difference is about the collars. Therefore, when choosing jewelry pieces for turtle necklines, follow the same rules of collared neck necklines: the medium-sized pendant neckpieces.
These necklines are also similar to the boat neck necklines and hence, consider the same rules of boat neck necklines: the layered necklaces.
Once again, this neckline is a modified version of the Halter neckline without the straps. But the same rules do not apply to this neckline. Instead of choosing sleeky pendant designs, choose tabular pendant designs, they will look much better than the sleeky ones.
The length of the necklace has always affected the style of an outfit’s necklines to give them a more trendy and fashionable look. Necklaces were considered nighttime jewelry pieces and brooches as a piece of daytime jewelry, but this condition is not the same anymore.
Millennial ladies love to wear necklaces every day and throughout the day. That is why Facet Of Love has merged the interests of the ladies and created Mangalsutra necklaces; a combination of Mangalsutra and a necklace, so that our Gen Z married women can be trendy and traditional at the same time.
