A necklace is more than just a pretty piece of jewellery to throw on as an afterthought. When selected right, a necklace can make a woman feel her most beautiful.
Necklaces often serve as a focal point in a woman’s outfit — they can truly be works of art. Not only that, but the right necklace and necklace length will serve to frame your face, actually enhancing your natural beauty. If the length is wrong, on the other hand, it can draw attention to your least-favourite features… or even get lost in your appearance.
How to Select the Right Necklace Length
Many factors go into selecting the right necklace length, but ultimately, it all comes down to what you like and how it makes you feel. Use these guidelines as a starting point, but don’t forget to follow your instinct.
Since a necklace frames the face, it plays an impact on how angular, round, long, short, narrow, or wide your face will appear. The right necklace length can enhance and accentuate your most beautiful facial features.
Heart-shaped and rectangular face: Choker length necklaces (30 – 40 cm) look especially lovely on women with heart-shaped or rectangular faces, as they help to soften any sharp angles in the chin.
Round face: Longer necklaces (70 – 80 cm) are lovely on round faces, as they help to elongate the jawline. Choker necklaces typically do not look as good on round faces.
Oval face: Oval-shaped faces typically look graceful and elegant with any necklace length.
A woman’s height plays an important role in the best necklace length for her body. A petite woman can be overwhelmed by a longer necklace, while a short necklace could get lost on a tall woman.
Below 162 centimeters: A 40-50 cm (on the collarbone or just below) necklace length will look best.
162 – 173 centimeters: All necklace lengths work equally well.
Above 173 centimeters: Any necklace length is beautiful, but longer is the most stunning — as it accentuates a tall frame.
A fuller-figured woman should not wear a necklace at or below the breast line. A necklace that sits higher on the body (50 cm) will look lovely.
A flat-chested woman will look graceful and elegant with a long, thin chain.
If you want to give the look of elongating your neck, a 50 cm – 60 cm necklace will add that coveted swan-like appearance to your neck. This is especially helpful if you’re worried about wrinkles on your neck, as this length draws eyes away from any trouble spots.
