If you can imagine a design for a necklace, it’s probably already been made by someone, or at the very least, something close to it has. The necklace is one of the most popular items of jewelry out there, with many people wearing them on a daily basis without even thinking about it. They’re not so much a statement as a staple, an ever-present part of a person’s wardrobe.
Regardless of your taste in jewelry, you can rest assured that finding a necklace you like will not pose much of a problem. Whether you favor the chunky pendant or the dainty chain, there’s a fairly good chance that your local jewelers or Coup de Coeur London will have something to your taste.
On the whole, smaller necklaces without any stone, or with very understated accents, will pretty much go with any outfit, blending seamlessly with any style or look. Larger pieces with eye-catching gems and intricate designs are slightly harder to match with your wardrobe. However, if worn as part of a well-formed ensemble, a statement necklace can elevate a look from good to awesome. Not bad for a single piece of jewelry.
Due to their prevalence and diversity of design, necklaces often make up a significant proportion of a jewelry collection, and it is not uncommon for someone to have many different pieces for many different occasions. So, with all the choice out there, how do you choose what to buy?
The simple answer is to buy whatever takes your fancy. Fashion and style are in the eye of the beholder, and what some find hideous others will find gorgeous. When it comes to choosing outfits and accessories, the golden rule is to wear what you want and wear it with confidence. If you like what you are wearing, that’s all that really matters.
