How to Choose a Necklace that Flatters You

Necklaces are the main focus of any ensemble and are used to coordinate other jewelry pieces, such as earrings, bracelets, and rings. The right necklace can enhance attractive features while minimizing flaws. When choosing a flattering style, two important considerations are face shape and neckline. Necklaces to Enhance Face Shape Everyone's facial features are unique, but there are several categories under which most people fall. Some faces have a combination of two or more shapes, but the general designs are oval, pear, heart, square, and round.
