Most pendants come complete with a chain, so before you shop, consider which chain length will look best on you.
Find Your Balance Point. Grab a tape measure. Measure the length from your chin up to your hairline. Use this length to measure from your chin down to your chest. This is the balance point for your facial shape and structure. Your balance point is the perfect spot for a pendant to end or a neckline to begin.
Consider the Occasion. Although large pendants created from silver are much more affordable than their gold or platinum counterparts, err on the side of elegant simplicity in a business setting. However, when out on the town, don’t be afraid to step out with chunky chains sporting bold silver pendants to show off your stylish flair for fashion. Of course, wearing multiple silver chains makes a great impression as well. Create a flashy, carefree look when donning your favorite jeans and tee by layering many different silver chain lengths and similar pendant styles.
Mixing Color If your jewelry collection contains yellow gold pieces, try mixing silver and yellow necklaces together. However, coordinating this look with two-tone earrings is essential because earrings and pendants are in such close proximity on the body. Definitely try to coordinate colored gems set in silver with harmonizing wardrobe colors. However, basic black is the ultimate backdrop for a stunning silver pendant embellished with diamonds, pearls or any colored gemstones. Various shades of gray, and even white, also work extremely well to highlight the sparkle of this type of necklace. Avoid wearing a silver pendant that drops below the neckline of a silver top, as the beauty of the necklace will not have any visual impact. Whether you choose the shiny bright finish of high polished silver or the soft patina of a brushed silver pendant, choose a design that reflects your personal sense of style.
