When we wear a sterling silver necklace, we are bringing attention to
the top half of our body: our face and neck, and especially our eyes
and, yes, our bustline. Most of us choose a sterling silver necklace to
suit the frock or jumper we’re wearing, or simply because we like the
gemstones in it, or perhaps because it was given to us by someone we
love. However, we should also give some thought to how a sterling silver
necklace balances or unbalances us, enhances or detracts from our
Although a sterling silver necklace is almost always beautiful, and
can’t really make us look bad, it can throw our look “off kilter” if not
chose, correctly. For example, those of us who are “well endowed”
should probably not wear a long sterling silver necklace with a large,
pendulous pendant in a striking gemstone. Instead, women with a proud
and ample front should wear a shorter sterling silver necklace, perhaps
to the breastbone, with moderate-size links and a smattering of colorful
gemstones to draw the eye upward towards the face.
Naturally, the reverse is also the case: for those of us who are flat-chested, one or more large-link sterling silver necklaces, or a sterling silver necklace with a large and colourful pendant - say, of turquoise, or amber - can work wonders.
Similarly, the play between your face and your sterling silver
necklace is also worth a thought or two before walking out the door. If
you have a long, thin face, a pointy or jutting chin, or an oval face,
you’ll do best to choose a rounder sterling silver necklace, perhaps a
choker that sits right at the base of the neck, to round out your look.
Choosing a sterling silver necklace with round gemstones, such as
cultured pearls, is also a good way to balance the thinner face.
Conversely, if you have a round face, full cheeks, or a short neck,
prefer a sterling silver necklace with large, graceful oval links that
falls at least to mid-chest. Or choose a sterling silver necklace that’s
quite long, and finishes in a pendant that offers some fascination,
whether with a gemstone, a geometric shape, a flower, or some filaments.
Either of these will help give your face a longer, leaner look.
Another way to use a silver necklace
to greatest advantage is to match it to the color of your eyes. A
sterling silver necklace with green agate will enhance grey eyes, whilst
a sterling silver necklace or choker with the luminous peridot will
look smashing on the lady with pale green eyes reminiscent of the
A sterling silver necklace with carnelian or amber will bring out the
multiple hues of the hazel-eyed - although these women have the
advantage of being able to “force” their eyes to look either blue, by
wearing a sterling silver necklace with a blue topaz, or green, by
wearing a sterling silver necklace with jade.
Women with honey-brown eyes can really bring out their eyes’ golden
hue by wearing a sterling silver necklace with a yellow topaz, a
citrine, or a tiger’s eye pendant, whilst those with chocolate brown
eyes will look bewitching if they don a sterling silver necklace with a
contrasting, bright gemstone like turquoise.
Another eye color that benefits from contrast more than congruence is
that of pure blue: zircons, moonstones, and multicolored opals set in a
sterling silver necklace all bring out the icy shimmer of this coveted
eye color. And if you’re lucky enough to have violet eyes, like
Elizabeth Taylor, you’ll look stunning in a sterling silver necklace
A sterling silver necklace is a wonderful way to enhance your look
and your feeling about yourself. Try some of these suggestions and see!
