Feminine Differential - Necklace

How to Choose Necklaces to Work with Your Neckline


Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles.
  • Turtle necks – best with longer necklaces
  • Crew necks – best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib styles
  • Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants
  • Strapless – look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely decolletage bare
  • Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline
  • Asymmetric necklines – look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has it’s own asymmetry can work, alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well.
  • Halter necks – these create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end
  • V neck – ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V – depending if it’s a wider or narrower V neck.
  • Collared shirt (button down) – there isn’t much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.
  • Boat neck – a long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.
  • Cowl neck – this neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.
  • Sweetheart – a curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.
