Ever wonder what necklace would look great with a square neckline? Or a cowl neckline?

Well, I wondered too! So, rather than re-invent the wheel, I looked to Imogen Lamport, Image Consultant, and author of the Inside Out Style Blog. Imogen put together a fantastic visual of what necklace shape looks best with different necklines (see below).

To get the most style impact from your Crystal Allure handmade beaded necklace purchase:

Turtle necks – look best with longer necklaces; long chains or pendants.

Crew necks – best with short necklaces such as ‘collar’ or bib styles.

Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants; think shorter pendants but with volume.

Strapless – look great with chokers (leaving your lovely decolletage bare).

Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline.

Off Shoulder or Asymmetric necklines – best with necklaces that aren’t symmetrical; a necklace that has its' own asymmetry works as a great compliment to the asymmetry of the neckline; alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work equally as well.

Halter necks – create a narrow V neck, so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end.

V neck – this most common neckline looks best with a necklace that matches the shape of the V.

Collared shirt (button down) – typically do not have much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works best with a long neck; if you have a short neck, a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.

Boat neck – a long string or two (or three!) of beads is ideal for this neckline.

Cowl neck – this already detailed necklace has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.

Sweetheart – a curved necklace with width that will ultimately balance the open decolletage of this neckline.
