Most dressers underestimate the importance of matching necklaces with pendants. Being overcome with the nitty gritty of pairing outfits with the right kinds of accessories, they overlook seemingly unimportant things like necklaces and rings. In importance, pendants and necklaces have more fashion relevance to a woman’s attire than rings. In fact, the two pieces are so central to the whole getup that you cannot neglect matching your necklace with the pendant if looking great is the ultimate goal. So here is a little help for you to figure out the matching of their pendants and necklaces correctly.
If you are a fan of modern, dainty, geometric pendants, then you probably have a handful of those. Inexpensive and eye-catching these pendants are everywhere. They are great to wear with work outfits as well as party wears. In fact, they are wear-on pendants that you do not need to change with your outfit. These newer style pendants look great on skinny chains. Be it a religious symbol, an intertwining halo, a star or a monogram, a chain between 16 and 24 inches long suffice. For all modern pendants, chains this long serve best.
Gemstone Solitaire Pendants
Gemstone pendants are a trend that is taking the market by storm. Catching the fancy of one and all, these pendants are stunning and subtle, glamorous and understated, all at once. But what kind of chains would you ideally hang them on? Gemstone solitaire pendants look best when hung on delicate chains. Dig deep into your box and fish out the skinniest, most delicate necklace you have. That is the necklace that will offer your gemstone solitaire pendant maximum exposure. The ideal length of this necklace should be anywhere between 18 and 36 inches. So that’s a wide berth, and you are likely to find something in your collection measuring that. The bigger your pendant is, the longer the chain should be.
Lastly for halo pendants, you need something durable. For even skinny halo pendants, you want chains that are strong and durable. Dainty and delicate ones are not the best fit here. Because halo pendants are worn on special occasions, you want to pair them with chains that are a little on the thicker side. However, those that are broad or flat won’t do either. An averagely thick chain of typical length is what you want for your halo pendants. So pick between 18 and 36 inches.
