Aside from a gigantic engagement ring, ask any woman what piece of jewelry stands out the most and the most common answer you will hear is a necklace. Drawing attention to the neckline and below, a necklace is a fantastic way to accent any outfit and define your personal style. For example, a diamond necklace lends an air of formality to attire as well as a certain element of status. Pearls are a similarly affluent choice but also exude a sense of primness and propriety. On the other side of the spectrum, gemstones, crystals and glass beads evoke a funkier, more modern sense of style. But regardless of what your personal taste is, there is just no good reason have a bare neck anymore when there are tons of flattering necklaces available for every neckline.
