The final touch for every outfit no matter casual or formal is the jewelry. It is very important to choose the perfect bracelet, earrings and especially the right size of the pendant to wear.
Pendant size depends on the outfit; the shape of your neckline; how tall are you; what is the shape of your face and body; what is your neck; the main purpose of wearing it; its color and design etc. The necklace of the perfect length will emphasize the beauty of your face and figure.
How to choose a pendant necklace depending on how tall are you?
It is very important to choose the right size, because a long necklace will make a short woman even shorter. But if you are very tall the short necklace will suit very small on your neck. Here are some details:
|How tall are you ?||Length of the necklace||Features|
|Below 160 cm||40 – 55 cm||Y and V-shaped necklaces and oblong necklaces will make your neck looks longer|
|Between 160 – 178 cm||any length of necklaces||You are lucky because you can wear any length of pendants. But don`t forget to take in mind the size of your neck.|
|Up to 178 cm and taller||longer necklaces||Bigger and longer necklaces will suit you best|
How to choose the right size of a pendant necklace depending on your face shape?
Other feature you have to think about is the shape of your face. Not every necklace suits well at every face shape same as the earrings.
|Face shape||Length of the necklace||Type of the necklace|
|Oval face||40 – 90 cm||You can wear any necklace of any length|
|Round face||50 – 90 cm||Longer necklaces, depending on how tall are you. Avoid very short necklaces|
|Rectangular (narrow) face||25 – 45 cm||Shorter necklaces will help you smooth the lines of your face and make them softer|
|Heart (diamond) shape||40 – 45 cm||Short necklaces which will make the bottom of your face look more oval|
How to choose the right size of a pendant necklace depending of the shape of your body?
It is very important to be careful when choosing the right pendant size because your dress size or size of your bust can determine how a necklace will sit against the body. Women with larger bust should avoid long necklaces as they won’t sit comfortably. The smaller your bust is the longer the pendant should be. The same occurs for your neck size, if you have a thicker neck then avoid chokers as this will make your neckline look shorter. If you have a long, thin neck, then a choker can help bring proportion to your neckline and face.
- Pear shape – As your body has smaller top and wide bottom, the necklaces that work well are shorter ones that help broaden the shoulders. Opt for necklaces that sit just above the bust to draw attention to the upper body.
- Hourglass – Look for a necklace length that just sits on your décolletage to help accentuate your curves.
- Inverted triangle – Your shoulders are broader, so longer length necklaces will help bring the eye down to your waist, highlighting the smallest part of your body.
- Round or Rectangular – Apple body types have shoulders and hips around the same size, but with a wider waist. Longer necklaces will help elongate the look of your body.
