The Necktionary!

By Sanhati Banerjee

Plan Your Wedding presents to all the long expressions, the short snippets and the neck-hugging details about those neck ornaments that can give a lot of definition and character to your face and neckline.

Now ladies, before we delve deep into necklaces, you need to do all the homework! That is, brush up your ‘know-your-necklace’ knowledge and take confident steps toward your fab necklaces. So, here’s all that you need to know.

Know your Necklace
• Collar Necklace: A necklace that measures approximately 12-to-13 inches long.
• Choker: A choker is a close-fitting necklace, worn high on the neck.
• Princess: A princess necklace is 45 centimetres (18 inches) to 50 centimetres (20 inches) long; longer than a choker, but shorter than a matinee.
• Matinee: A matinee length necklace is 56 centimetres (22 in) to 58 centimetres (23 in) long - typically a single strand that rests at the top of the cleavage.
• Opera: An opera necklace is 75 centimetres (30 in) to 90 centimetres (35 in) long and sits at the breast bone.
• Rope: A rope necklace is any necklace longer than the opera length and any other that you would like to mention.

Choosing Necklaces by Face Shape
“What to Wear” and “What to Avoid” pointers, when it comes to clothing or jewellery can make all the difference. Here’s a detailed look into the necklace types which can go and not go with a particular face type:
• Round face: Use longer lengths to lengthen the look of the face. Use larger components that create V-shapes to complement the face. Avoid princess, choker and collar lengths which shorten the neckline.
• Square face: Use curves and length to soften down the face. Draw attention away from neckline with large components that hang fairly low. Choose pendants with curved detailing. Avoid princess, choker and collar lengths.
• Pear/Triangle face: Use short lengths with gentle curves. Princess and matinee styles are complimentary. Create length by using large components to form a V-shape below neckline. Pendants with bold, rounded designs are the best.
• Inverted Triangle/Heart face: Short and curved shapes are best. Choker, princess and collar lengths are ideal. If longer lengths are desired, then pair with a shorter length to create balance. Rounded neckwires and short bib-styles are complementary.
• Diamond face: A diamond necklace is a necklace that incorporates diamonds - they are often given as gifts in Western countries as signs of love and fealty between wealthy lovers or families. There are a variety of diamond necklaces available to the average consumer including the diamond eternity necklace, the diamond ‘V’ necklace, the diamond ‘Y’ necklace and the diamonds by the yard necklace.
• Oval face: Chokers will draw emphasis to a long neck. Opera style will lengthen a torso. Matinee with drops accent a low-cut neckline. Soft shapes such as spheres, pearls, open link chains, etc. will complement the softness of the face.
• Oblong face: Short lengths compliment this shape. Collar length, choker and princess lengths break the vertical line of this shape and are complementary. Large beads and rounded neck wires work best.
• Rectangular face: Short lengths complement this shape. Collar length, choker and princess lengths break the vertical line of this shape and are complementary. Large beads and rounded neck wires are the best.
Matching Necklaces with Necklines
Here’s a look into what type of a necklace you can pair with a particular neckline that can help you choose better and always be fashion-savvy.
• Turtle Necks: These work best with longer necklaces. Short necklaces are normally hidden in such necklines.
• High Necks: It is more appropriate to wear a long and dangling necklace. This is a great way to add dimension to a simple shirt that would otherwise seem very plain.
• Crew Necks: Crew necks work best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib styles.
• Scoop Necks: One can fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants.
• Strapless: Strapless necks look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely décolletage bare.
• Square Necks: For square necklines, the best companion is a short choker. Either a chunky one, a pendant chain ensemble or a strand of pearls.
• Asymmetrical Necklines: One should look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has its own asymmetry can work, and alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well.
• Halter Necks: Halter necklines create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end.
• V necks: A V-shaped neckline looks best with a necklace following the V-shape, like a pendant necklace or a Y-necklace, never a round choker. The length of the necklace depends on how deep the V-neck is and will probably be around the 45cm/18 inch mark.
• Boat necks: The boat neck is not easy to accentuate. Never wear anything shorter, but go for the longer (minimum 20”, 50cm) style. Long chains with pendants work nicely and so do body necklaces. A long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.
• Collared neckline (buttoned down): There isn’t much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.
• Cowl Neck: This neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.
• Sweetheart Neckline: Again, a lot of bare skin and therefore room to work with. You have the choice of going with a pendant/chain style or add a bolder chunky necklace.
Finally, on accentuating the face by selecting the right necklace, I would like to say that many women are driven by trends and not by what looks good on them. Trust your instincts and be creative when wearing necklaces. With a combination of the right necklace length and well-coordinated clothing, you will be on your way to necklace wearing excellence!
