How to Wear a Personalized Necklace

Want to add a little extra style to elevate your wardrobe, but you’re not sure how? A playful, personalized necklace can be the perfect accessory to dress up any outfit. While there are so many ways to wear necklaces, here are some style tips to consider. Jewlr has a large selection of necklaces for women and men that can be customized for any occasion, so keep reading for some tips on how to create a look that is uniquely yours.

Short and Sweet

For an elegant look or to add a hint of sophistication to your everyday look, make a subtle statement with a shorter necklace. Imagine your birthstone on a golden chain centered perfectly on your collarbone, or on a simple silver chain glinting just above your collar. Jewlr offers a variety of chain lengths starting at 14 inches, and every chain comes with the option to add an extender for a versatile, perfect fit. Start by personalizing a pendant and then choose your chain length; or find a chain you love and add customizable tiny charms, initials, or birthstones for a splash of color. These timeless pieces of jewelry can be dressed up or down, no matter the season, and are perfect for layering.

What to wear with a shorter necklace:

  • Crew-neck shirt: This neckline demands attention, so confidently wear shorter chains, like a personalized birthstone necklace, snugly around your neck.
  • Collared or button-up shirts: These shirts are meant to accentuate your neckline. For a more casual, relaxed style, open the top button or two to allow your necklace to peek through.

Mid-Length Versatility

A medium-length necklace is a must-have in any wardrobe. Neither too long nor too short, design a mid-length necklace to feature larger pendants, initials, gemstones, or names.

What to wear with a mid-length necklace:

  • V-necks: A stand-alone engravable bar necklace or handcrafted pendant is an excellent choice for this angular neckline. Just make sure the bottom of the pendant rests well above your neckline so it’s visible.

  • Scoop necklines: A Personalized Name Necklace will look beautiful framed by this wider neckline. Create yours in sterling silver or solid white, yellow or rose gold, in a font that speaks to your style. Add a charm with your birthstone for a little extra sparkle.

Necklaces aren’t just for women either: personalized men’s necklaces offer something a bit more modern for men who want something unique. These pieces come in a wide variety of simple and stylish, mid-length chains which are a great way for men to create a unique look. For example, a Vertical 3D Bar Necklace with a special engraving will complement any outfit.

The Long Line

Confident and elegant, a longer necklace provides a touch of drama and focus to any outfit. These necklaces are so versatile – and the style possibilities are endless. Our longer necklaces can be customized to your liking to create something meaningful. You can even add a chain extender to ensure you have the perfect length.

What to wear with a longer necklace:

  • Turtlenecks: In cooler seasons, dress up a cozy turtleneck with a longer chain and personalized pendant to play with length and height.
  • T-shirts or boatneck tops: These necklines are great for any style or length of necklace. A unique Caged Hearts Necklace will make for an eye-catching centerpiece.

Mix and Match: The Art of Layering

Jewlr’s personalized necklaces come in a variety of chain lengths with optional extenders, making it fun and easy to mix and match different sizes, pendant or bar shapes, weights, and styles. Finding the right balance is key to layering your necklaces. The number of pieces and length of your chains is entirely up to you and your style. As a general guide, create your unique layered look from the top down. Start with wearing the daintiest and lightest piece of jewelry closest to your neck. Mix and match chain styles with and without pendants for texture, variety in style and lengths as you add other necklaces. Have fun experimenting with different textures – rounded box chains, cable chains, rope chains, and diamond cut cable chains – to create a look that reflects your personality. Use an extender to fine-tune chain lengths and provide visual separation. To complete your look, the largest pendant on the longest chain should always be at the bottom. This helps to anchor your necklaces, tying your look together.

For example, you might feature a shorter everyday necklace as your foundation with a weightier, mid-length, modern Open Curb Chain below, followed by a long, beautiful personalized name necklace with gemstones for the finishing touch. No matter how many pieces you layer, Jewlr’s custom necklaces will always match your style, because it’s yours.
