How to Choose a Necklace Length

Are you wondering how to choose the perfect necklace length for yourself? Well, it's not that complicated. You just need to consider a few things that will help you make the right choice.

First and foremost, your face shape plays a crucial role. If you have a round or oval face, a necklace with a length of 20-25 inches will complement your features and make you look elegant. However, if you have a square or oblong face, a shorter necklace will soften your features and make you look more attractive. Heart-shaped faces look best with a necklace length of 16-18 inches, which will highlight your face and soften any sharp angles.

Your height is another important factor to consider. Taller people can wear any length of necklace, but longer necklaces will accentuate their frame better. On the other hand, people with shorter heights will look more flattering with a necklace length ranging from 16-18 inches. If you're of average height, then you can choose any length that you like and feel comfortable with.

Lastly, your body shape also plays a vital role in determining the perfect necklace length. If you have an hourglass figure, a necklace that sits just at a lower cut neckline will accentuate your curves. Long necklaces that elongate the body are perfect for athletic body types. Pear-shaped bodies should wear necklaces that are 18-24 inches to broaden their shoulders and balance their figure. For those with an inverted triangle body type, longer necklaces will draw attention to the smallest part of their body and make them look stunning.
