When purchasing accessories, some people may choose a design they like or choose a brand they like.

Also, in recent years, there are many opportunities to see various products and brands on SNS.

So, let's take a closer look at the key points for finding a brand that suits your style and needs, as well as how to choose a necklace.

How to choose a necklace

First of all, it is important to consider design, material, quality, budget, etc. when it comes to accessories in general.

When choosing a brand, accessories will feel more special if the brand offers points that you can empathize with, such as the concept and worldview proposed by the brand, as well as a support system after purchase.

There are also some points to consider when choosing a necklace.

Choose by necklace length

The suitable length of a necklace varies depending on the individual and styling, such as the length of the neck, the shape of the face, and the shape of the collar.

It is important to try on the necklace and use a mirror to check the length that suits you and your outfit.

The main length types of necklaces are as follows, and "Princess" is a medium length suitable for daily use.

``Rope'' is long and can be styled freely, and is recommended for those who like layered styles.

Choker (approx. 35-40cm)

Drop Pearl Long Necklace[Stainless]

Perfect for formal events and special occasions.

Long necklaces create an elegant style and go well with dresses and gowns.

Rope (about 100cm or more)

Long necklaces and ropes can be arranged as you like.

You can enjoy different styles by layering or wrapping them.

Choose based on the balance with the collar.

Next, let's take a look at necklaces that go well with different outfits.

When wearing a necklace, it is important to balance the neck and clothing.

Long necklaces and V-shaped designs on tops and dresses with wide open necks beautifully decorate the décolleté and give a stylish impression.

Also, princess or matinee necklaces go well with regular V-neck or round neck tops.

On the other hand, if you wear tops or shirts with narrow necks, a choker or short necklace will make your neck look neater.

We also recommend pairing it with high neck tops in fall and winter.

High necks go well with long necklaces and slender designs, giving an elegant impression.

Choose by layering

You can enjoy layered styling by layering necklaces of different lengths.

When layering necklaces, choose ones of the same color and thinness to make the whole outfit cohesive.

For example, it would be good to combine gold with each other or gold and silver.

Also, pairing a pearl or bead necklace with a metal chain creates a unique look and accent.

Layered styles go well with simple tops, so why not add a necklace accent to a plain or simple patterned top for a stylish look?

Choose by clothing design

Relaxed looks like oversized tops and casual outfits can be given a stylish accent with a simple metal necklace or pendant.

We recommend layering beaded necklaces or multiple necklaces with casual tops like T-shirts.

Necklaces that go well with dresses and formal wear should be ones that give a gorgeous and elegant look, such as simple pendants, pearl necklaces, or necklaces encrusted with diamonds or other gemstones.

A simple gold or silver chain can also work well in a formal setting if chosen appropriately.

Choose by color

Gold and silver are classic basic colors that are easy to match with any style.

You can choose your favorite color from the styling style of the day, or choose a color that suits your skin tone even more.
