How to Choose the Right Necklace Length

Published July 5th, 2023 by Annapolis Jewelers

A person's beauty and attractiveness is very important to some people. These people could spend four hours a day on activities that enhance their appearance. 

Part of your appearance is what you wear. It can even come down to smaller pieces of jewelry, such as necklaces. 

Did you know that your necklace length could alter your appearance? If not, you are probably wondering how your chain length does this. What is the perfect necklace for you? 

This guide will give you some tips on the necklace length that you should choose. 

Consider the Neckline

The first thing you are going to want to think about is what kind of neckline you have. You could have several different necklines in your wardrobe that may require different necklace lengths. 

Considering that the average height of a woman is 5'4, some women may also lean towards certain necklines to improve their appearance.

Let's use v-necks as an example. With this type of neckline, more of your chest will be revealed. So, you have to play this carefully. 

For women that do not mind a notable necklace around their chest area, you may want to go with a longer length. However, if you want to divert attention away from the chest area, you may go with a shorter length. 

Scoop necks are somewhat similar, except the frame of the chest area is a little tighter on those shirts. So, it may not be ideal to have a longer necklace with this type of neckline. 

Strapless necklines may allow women to have more flexibility. Here, you could have a longer necklace to center your whole image. 

Consider the Print

Another thing you have to think about is what kind of print your outfit has. If it is something simple, like a solid color, then you may have more liberty to wear a longer necklace with that outfit. 

However, if you have busy prints in your outfit, it may not be ideal to have a longer necklace with this. 

Why is that? Because with that type of outfit, a longer necklace may get lost in the design. Something shorter and as close to your neck as possible would benefit you here because then you increase your chances of the necklace getting noticed. 

Determine Your Ideal Necklace Length

These are some of the biggest factors that you need to consider to determine your ideal necklace length. You have to think about how a necklace goes with your neckline and one that goes with the print that your outfit has. This could mean that you have different necklace lengths for different outfits in your wardrobe. 

Once you factor both of these things in, you should have a better idea of what the perfect necklace for you is for your outfit.
