When deciding if a necklace or chain will complement your outfit, the design, material, and length all play a factor. Read this post before you go shopping for a silver necklace so you know what to look for.

The silver industry produces a wide variety of chain styles. Due to the lack of uniformity in their naming practices, several terms may be used to refer to the same type of chain that contains a particular set of links. Cable chains, anchor chains, ball chains, snake chains, boxes, omega chains, and rope chains are the most prevalent. Their odd appearance or the unique configuration of their linkages is the inspiration for their evocative moniker. Also, it's important to note that there are many types of silver, with sterling silver being the best for jewellery. The 925 hallmarks on the turquoise necklace will show that they are sterling silver, but the lack of a hallmark on silver-plated necklaces means that they are just as affordable despite not being sterling silver. Shiny silver chains go with everything, and the daintier ones draw attention just to the pendant you're wearing.

There is a wide variety of designs to choose from while shopping for a silver necklace. A silver necklace looks stunning when set with turquoise, black agate, or lapis lazuli. Chokers are a subset of necklaces that consist of one or more bands that are worn very close to the neck. Some chokers are solid, while others are composed of pliable silver strands and even feature a little pendant. There is an overwhelming variety of styles and options to choose from. Always choose a necklace style that complements your other jewellery and draws attention to the natural curves of your neck.

The silver industry has established standard lengths for men's and women's chains and necklaces, with each category separated by 2". Depending on the wearer's sex, the chains will rest at a different spot on the chest. Women's necklaces often range in length from 16 inches (choker length) to 24 inches (below the neckline). Men's necklace lengths typically range from 18 inches to 24 inches, with longer necklaces resting just above the chest. The length of the chain that you should wear depends on your neck size, which you may determine by measuring your neck. Put a flexible tape measure around your neck, just above the collarbone, and write down the number. This number corresponds precisely to the size of a man's shirt collar. When buying a silver necklace or chain, you must go for the next size higher.

Buying the same-length necklace over and over again is dull. Depending on the season, the event, and your style preferences, you can decide on the optimal hair length. In colder months, a lengthy necklace looks great with a turtleneck, while a choker is perfect for a v-neck or scoop neck. Keep in mind that the longer the necklace, the more it will cost, so if you're on a strict budget, you may want to look into other options like a silver plate.

Any lady's appearance can be improved by accessorizing with the perfect silver necklace. Think about your neck size, the thickness, and shape of the chain links, and the types of clothing and events you plan to wear the necklace with, and you'll be well on your way to looking your best.
