Most people buy jewelry after careful consideration especially if it is made of precious metals and stones. The kind of jewelry you wear has a lot to say about your personality and it can also make an immense difference to your appearance. You therefore need to know how to buy jewelry carefully so that it can enhance your looks to the maximum extent possible.
When you go shopping for jewelry necklaces there is an immense variety available and it can get quite confusing for you. There are however a few universal rules that can help you select a necklace that suits you best.
To start with, you should buy the necklace based upon the occasion you will wear it for and the outfit it is supposed to be paired with. There are necklaces that are more appropriate for casual events whereas heavy or expensive ones are more suitable for formal events. You should also take care to buy a necklace that does not visually overpower you or your outfit. There are certain designs, especially those that include diamond pendants, which can be worn for any occasion.
Necklaces, with or without pendants can be worn in different lengths depending on what feature you want to highlight. If you have a low cut outfit that shows your bosom off to an advantage, make sure that you select a long necklace with a very unique pendant that reaches an inch or so higher than your outfit’s neckline. This will draw attention to this area.
If, on the other hand, it is your slender or graceful neck that you wish to highlight, then you should wear a necklace, with or without a pendant that sits on your collar bone. Short necklaces are very inappropriate for people with short or thick necks because it will call attention to this unattractive fact. Never make the mistake of wearing pendants that disappear into your neckline because it will spoil the overall look of the outfit.
Pearl necklaces should be bought with a lot of care because they come in different hues and you have to make sure that the one you purchase suits your skin tone perfectly. The rules regarding length appear here as well. In addition, a petite person should wear medium to small pearls whereas a large person can carry off dramatically large pearls.
