What necklace suits which neckline

Long necklace – The best necklines for a long necklace are simple high necklines like a polo neck or a round or oval neckline. Bold and simple colours are best with longer necklaces to keep the look streamline and not over cluttered.

Chunky necklaces – A low or open neckline such as square, sweetheart or round work best with chunky necklaces or a strapless top will also keep the attention on the necklace without overcrowding your neck.

Choker necklace -Keep the necklines low for this type of necklace, a choker necklace looks great with a strapless neckline or a wide square neckline too. If your choker has a statement look then opt for a simple one coloured top, if you choose a daintier style of choker then it may look great with a print or detailed top.

Lariat necklace- A lariat necklace or even a v shaped necklace looks best with a v neckline. The necklace should end just about an inch above your neckline, you don’t really want the pendant to be over the neckline or too short. To create the right proportions ensure that the pendant width reflects the width of the neckline, the wider the V-neck, the bigger the pendant, and vice versa.

Collar necklace - Distinctive in style, these necklaces encircle your collar area and call for an outfit to show them off. They are best worn with open neck tops like boat necks, V-necks, or off-the-shoulder numbers.

Princess necklace - The princess is the most common necklace and is between 17 and 19 inches in length. It is available as both a light and heavy necklace and falls on the collarbone. As with the choker style, this necklace is versatile and can be worn with most necklines, if they are open enough to show off the décolletage.

The history of jewellery 

Ancient world jewellery

Gold was a rare and highly valued material in the ancient world, it was usually buried with the dead to accompany the owner into afterlife. Majority of the archaeological jewellery comes from tombs and hoards from Egypt and Celtic Ireland where jewellery was part of the death ritual.

Medieval jewellery 1200–1500

The jewellery worn during the medieval Europe period reflected the hierarchical and status-conscious society. Royalty and the nobility wore gold, silver and precious gems and lower ranks of society wore base metals, such as copper or pewter. The protective power of jewellery was highly valued. Some jewels had cryptic or magical inscriptions as they believed it would protect the wearer.

Renaissance jewellery

Renaissance jewels shared the age's passion for extravagance, enamels often covered both sides of the jewel and they became more elaborate and colourful as society made advances in cutting techniques which increased the glitter of stones. Jewellery during this period heavily represented religion many spectacular pieces were worn as a display of political strength.

17th-century jewellery

17th-century saw a big change in jewellery style expanding global trade made gemstones ever more available and new softer pastel shades became graceful backdrops for gemstones and pearls. The most ornate jewels were often large bodice or breast ornaments, which had to be pinned or stitched to stiff dress fabrics.

18th-century jewellery

This century saw even more advancement in the cut of gemstones and more elaborate designs, diamonds became the stone du jour and they sparkled as never before as they came to dominate jewellery fashion. Diamonds were also regularly mounted in silver to enhance the stone's white colour; stunning sets of diamond jewels were essential for court life.

19th-century jewellery

Although the 19th century bought about a lot of industrial and social change, the focus of jewellery design was still in the past. There was a great deal of interest in antiquities was fuelled by fresh archaeological discoveries. Goldsmiths and jewellery designers attempted to revive ancient jewellery making techniques and made jewellery that replicated antique style jewellery.

Art Nouveau jewellery 1895–1910

Eroticism and death heavily influenced this era, jewellery during this era used unusual and subtle materials like glass, horn and enamel. These designs were a world away from flower influenced pieces of previous eras.

Art Deco jewellery to the 1950's

The iconic sharp, geometric patterns celebrated the machine age and were seen solidly through all jewellery during this period. Despite depression and war jewellery designers continued to be innovative and produced incredibly glamorous jewellery. Gold came back into fashion and jewellery fashion became more contemporary, internationally influenced by the far East  

Contemporary jewellery

From the 1960's onwards jewellery has taken a complete 360 and has been reinvented to some extent. Independent jewellers, new generations and the study of jewellery has all heavily influenced designs giving unusual, creative, fusion and a lighter take on adornment. New technologies and non-precious materials such as plastics, paper and textiles have all played a part in redefining what jewellery is or what it should look like.
