New Necklace Looks Add Flair to Any Jewelry Wardrobe
To this day, women in many Asian cultures wear traditional-styled necklaces of high-karat gold as symbols of portable wealth. The gold links are always of specific weights and shapes, so the exact amount of wealth in any necklace is clear at a glance.
In Western cultures, the shapes and forms of necklaces, and materials used in necklaces change with every season, based on fashion rather than finance. Take the traditional station necklace and add a dazzling set of large freshwater baroque pearls in black or circle pearls in white for a new look with plenty of pizzazz.
Now that big 9 to 10mm black freshwater pearls are more readily available, you can make a huge fashion splash without breaking the bank. Freshwater pearl stations can be found in many colors and sizes suitable for any skin tone and wardrobe color. Add glamorous tassels to a long Y-chain necklace, and voila!
You have a stylish high-powered look that complements any business attire. Chains have become transformed in many ways to combine innovation with day- or night-time glamour. Try the new endless chains that feature huge links as large as hoops in faceted or textured finishes. These can be worn with jeans and casual tops as easily as with cocktail dresses or business suits.
For another elegant chain, choose two-tone gold flat circular links with diamond or colored stone accents on the pendant links. Some fashionable women have even taken to wearing the pendant links in back, over a strapless gown, to add an element of surprise and whimsy for those formal evening events.
