What are the most popular gold necklaces for women?
A gold necklace with a diamond is on itself totally irresistible. If that diamond is also deeply coloured, then you will without any doubt catch people's eye.
Certain colours are naturally scarcer and more expensive than others. But one thing's for sure — they all look perfect in a woman's necklace. And despite the often-striking colour of your diamond, you can wear your jewellery both during the day as well as for special occasions.
Which colour of diamond might you choose?
Would you love a blue diamond necklace, but your budget doesn't quite stretch? Then a woman's necklace with a sapphire is an equally beautiful and valuable alternative. The scarcest colours for a diamond are pink, red and green. Red rubies and green emeralds are beautiful alternatives.
Why choose a necklace with a yellow diamond?
Yellow stones owe their sunny shade to nitrogen atoms which end up in the diamond's carbon structure when it is forming.
One unique example is L’Incomparable, a diamond necklace with the world's largest flawless yellow diamond, at 407 carats. This exclusive diamond was discovered by accident among the waste material from a mine in Congo.
How to make a coloured diamond look its best?
Which precious metals are suitable for your necklace?
The unwritten rules of the jewellery business do not, of course, prevent you from mixing different precious metals. Wearing multi-coloured necklaces can even be quite trendy.
Go for two colours and combine a yellow gold necklace with a diamond set in white gold. Or put together your own flamboyant necklace using red, yellow, and white gold or platinum. The trend for multi-coloured necklaces is shown best with a thin necklace.
How should you wear a thin gold necklace?
A delicate necklace is a highly feminine accessory, which you can wear both at work and for a classy dinner. A thin gold necklace goes beautifully with any outfit. Which is why a thin necklace is a much sought-after accessory to complement your bridal wear. Could it be a little more striking? Go for a personalised pendant.
A thin gold necklace is an accessory not just popular with women. You can also get thin gold necklaces for men. Quite a few men find it tough to have dog tags hanging down (like in the army). Wedding rings can also be worn as a pendant on a thin necklace.
How should you wear a long gold necklace?
The latest trend is to wear a gold necklace on your back. The back chain is principally a trend in bridal fashion. But there's nothing stopping you from introducing the trend onto an open-backed summery ensemble. Some time ago, even the late Lady Di was once spotted with a back chain. Are we better referring to it as a vintage trend, like the choker?
How should you wear a choker?
A choker is a tight necklace worn around the neck, which lasts a lot longer than you might think.
For women with a shorter neck, there is a real chance their neck will seem even shorter. In this case, go for a subtle diamond choker. Do you have a long neck? Then you could also go for a wider design. Feel free to mix with longer necklaces. Especially if you like the extravagant or casual looks.
How long has the choker been around?
It wasn't until the 1920s, the Art Deco period, that the choker really became a fashion item. It was the perfect necklace for women with short hairstyles.
Which royals were fans of the choker?
Imitating the royals back then, lower class women used to pin a strip of velvet around their neck with a brooch or pendant.
Lady Di was also a fan of the choker. Thanks to her, buying a choker took on royal connotations. The choker had already been circulating widely in British royal circles a hundred years earlier. For instance, Queen Victoria was a devotee of bombastic designs showing off her wealth and power.
What necklace complements bridal fashion?
Brides like wearing necklaces as a bridal accessory. Consider the colour and neckline of your dress in order to choose correctly.
A gold necklace in the shape of a teardrop comes into its own against a V-neck dress. It is best to wear a round necklace with a strapless neckline, to break up the bare neck and chest area. With a high neckline, you can safely leave out the necklace and go instead for a diamond tiara, for instance.
