One of the best statement pieces of jewelry, the necklace has proven itself over and over again in the fashion world and in our own jewelry box. There are so many different ways that we can use a necklace. We can use one to stand out in a crowd or to look professional. We can use them to look edgy and modern. How about romantic and ladylike? Yes, there is a necklace for that too!
This fall, we are seeing some wonderful necklaces that will allow us to incorporate our statements to society. Here are 2 great necklaces that you need to look for and add to your favorites list. I know I am.
One of the hot items trending right now is Initial Pendants in white or yellow metals. You can find them with or without gemstones. The Initial Pendant uses a rather large size pendant, measuring from 1 1/2" to 2 1/2" in length. This stand-alone initial is most preferred although having a circle, square, heart or rectangle engraved with your initials is also being seen too.
The majority of people wearing initial pendants wear the first name initial although some married women are wearing the initial of their last name. These look great when mixed with other necklaces or wearing them alone can be a lovely fashion piece. You will see them on long length chains, ribbons, and leather cording.
Circle pendants also known as Eternity Pendants are another big trend for Fall 2011. You will find circle pendants with gemstones (real and faux) in a variety of metals like sterling silver, stainless steel, yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and platinum. If you are going to sport this trend look for circle pendants that are 2" to 3" in diameter and wear them on an 18" or 20" neck chain.
Both of these necklaces look stunning together or by themselves. The great thing about wearing pendants is that you can easily change the look by changing what it is worn on; cord, ribbon or chain. Necklaces are extremely versatile and that is why they are a great choice for your fall style.
