Necklaces

When trying to decide which kind of necklace to give your special someone this holiday season, there are many factors to consider. Not only is price a determining factor, but so is style and taste.

 

Traditional Necklaces

In the world of necklace jewelry there are some ‘must have’ items for most women. The pearl necklace is such a traditional accessory for most women and can be worn with not only business attire, but also with the ever popular “little black dress.”

The diamond necklace is also considered a traditional staple in a woman’s jewelry box. As with the pearl necklace, this necklace can be worn proudly in any number of social settings. Whether a single solitaire diamond pendant or a number of diamonds, diamonds,
especially diamond necklaces, continue to be “a girl’s best friend.”

 

New Traditions in Necklaces

In an effort to begin new traditions at Christmas time with your special gift, you may want to consider a new twist on the traditional necklace and consider a name necklace (a necklace that has the person’s name spelled out), or a nameplate necklace, or a monogram necklace. Such Christmas gifts are perfect for the young lady, tweener or teenager.

 

Symbols

Symbols on necklaces are fashionable, personable and trendy. Depending upon your style and tastes there are a wide variety of symbols to choose from in giving the perfect Christmas gift:

  • Heart necklace
  • Cross necklace
  • Gold Cross necklace
  • Open Heart necklace
  • St. Christopher necklace
  • Key necklace
  • Gemstone Necklaces

Gemstone necklaces are beautiful and are the perfect accessory for most women. Thankfully, there is such a wide selection to choose from when selecting gemstones that one need not have to worry about knowing the birthstone of the intended receiver. Popular gemstone necklaces include the amethyst necklace, the ruby necklace, as well as the birthstone necklace.

 

Necklace Materials

As necklaces can be worn daily or for special occasions, it’s critical to keep in mind the kind of material in the necklace. While some women prefer gold chained necklaces, other women have allergic reactions to some forms of gold and therefore can only wear silver.

As well, in today’s market place, there are more materials to choose from, when selecting a necklace than merely silver and gold. There are a wide variety of types of gold, too, to choose from. There is rose gold, tri-colored gold, 14 carat white gold, 14 carat yellow gold, 18 carat white gold and 18 carat yellow gold just to name a few. Conversely, included in necklace chain choices today are rubber as well as stainless steel.

 

Variety of Necklaces

In order to find the perfect necklace, you need to shop around. You need to see a variety of different styles of necklaces in order to familiarize yourself with what you believe the intended recipient would like or not like. Knowing if they have any allergic to reaction to some metals is also something helpful to know.

 

Necklace Lengths

Lastly, familiarizing yourself with the different lengths would be extremely helpful. Knowing which length of necklace would be too short is important information when selecting a length of necklace for your recipient. Conversely, knowing which length would be too long is equally important information to know when selecting your necklace as a perfect Christmas gift.
