Necklaces and chains - which one should you choose?
For girls, and especially for those who love dressing up, jewellery is as important as clothes. An ensemble is complete only when these two factors complement each other. Necklaces and chains form two very important pieces of jewellery that could make or break your look. But do you know the kinds of necklaces and chains available? Do you know what piece goes with what kind of a outfit? Do not fret if you don’t. We are here to ease some of the confusion out! Let’s take a look at the different types of necklaces:
This neck-piece creates a beautiful, dramatic look. These are long in length, ranging from twenty-eight inches to thirty-four inches. You can wear it as a single strand or you can double it up. Knot it up at the neckline for a classic cocktail look. Wear this piece with an off-shoulder evening gown and stun your guests.
Chokers are worn very close to the neck and remain stiff. They are around fourteen to sixteen inches long. This neck-piece looks gorgeous with low-cut tops and dresses. Although, if you want to highlight your collar bone, a choker may not be a great option.
These are also called crewnecks. They encircle your collarbone and are generally made up of kundans. They are twelve to thirteen inches long and are worn with any outfit that leaves your neck bare, like a boat neck, round neck or any dress that shows off your shoulders.
This mid-length piece sits right above the bust and goes great with formal as well as casual outfits. They are generally embellished with stones. If you are wearing a dress with a plunging neckline, this piece will add tonnes of oomph.
They are generally heavy in size and cover the entire chest region. It is imposing in nature and gives a bohemian vibe. They come with a lot of beads and tassels.
These chunky pieces sit high on your neck, close to your collarbone. They have a broad front section and are generally encrusted with precious stones, forming many layers. They cover you like how a bib would, hence the name. This neckpiece might appear bold but don’t be afraid to wear it with a simple kurti. It works wonders!
These are basically pearl necklaces, with the smallest pearl right at the back. The size of the pearls keep increasing towards the front of the necklace, hence the name ‘graduated’.
Chains and necklaces are not the same. A chain resembles a cable in its design. A necklace could be any decorative ornament meant to worn around the neck (with or without a chain), but a chain has to have a cable-like strand. This is why a chain can be referred to as a necklace but not the other way around. Chains are simpler in appearance and mostly come with a clasp.
