Statement necklaces

The place where you’re most often to see these necklaces is in high-end venues and on the catwalk this year – very ‘en vogue.’

Layered necklaces

Moving on, we’re coming into layers. These are the ones that go in and out as a trend yet somehow remain timeless. Perhaps it’s the depth and texture they add or the relief they give to those fashionistas who can’t make up their mind. Either way, when you see them – you’ll know it’s them. Composed of numerous (often 3 to 5) necklaces of different styles and varying lengths, You’ll see plenty of sterling silver necklaces here paired with slick golds.


And now we’re getting to the heart of things. A pendant is personal. It can be used as a statement piece that comes from the soul or even layered but standing alone – the pendant could be enough.

Find out what she already has...

It can seem unfamiliar checking a woman’s jewelry collection. There are carefully placed chains dangling from all sides, and if you move them around do much, you might just get bitten. Luckily, a quick glance should be sufficient.

If she has more silver necklaces than golds, it’s because she’s a silver-jewelry person. And that means you should buy her a silver necklace and vice versa for gold. Moreover, it’s best to follow the trend of her necklace collection while adding your own personal and heartfelt touch.

If you can’t take a look at her dresser, it’s best just to look over old photos of her or take notice of her jewelry every time you see her.

But what if she doesn’t wear jewelry often? Then all you have to do is observe how she dresses. As mentioned above, she’ll want a lovely necklace to go with her style. So, if she’s all formal, go formal. If not, you can go for more obscure choices.
