Summer Rainbow Watermelon Tourmaline Gemstone Anklet with Beaded Necklace

Tourmaline happens to be one of my favorite gemstones because it embodies all possible color combinations imaginable. I recently learned, ancient legend says that tourmaline can be found in all colors because it traveled along a rainbow and collected all the rainbow's colors. How cool is that?!

There are also two good reasons to own a piece of tourmaline: (1) it's a bright and beautiful gemstone and; (2) it's a high quality gemstone that is affordable.

Watermelon tourmaline is a rainbow of color featuring fuchsia, pink, lilac, emerald green, olive and ochre jewel tones that when combined create sophisticated handmade gemstone beaded jewelry that radiates pure elegance.

How to Choose Necklaces for Different Necklines

Ever wonder what necklace would look great with a square neckline? Or a cowl neckline?
Use Our Cheat Sheet When Choosing Necklaces for Necklines by Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry Creations
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.
