Necklace: Why we emphasize personalization?

Your necklace is the first thing that people are going to notice when you enter a room.

You will be the center of all. This will be your day.

Such special moments deserve unique details especially made for them.

Who has invented them?

This is an article of jewelry that is worn around the neck. Coupled with earrings and bracelets,  people used it as the earliest type of ornament. In those times, all of them were handmade. They often serve ceremonial, religious, magical, or funerary purposes and people use them as symbols of wealth and status, given that they are commonly made of precious metals and stones.

What are we talking about?

The main component of a collar is the band, chain, or cord that wraps around the neck. Of course these are most often rendered in precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. Likewise they always have additional attachments suspended or inset into the necklets itself. These attachments typically include pendants, lockets, amulets, crosses, and precious and semi-precious materials such as diamond, pearls, rubies, emeralds, garnets, and sapphires.

Classifying them

This classification was always  by length, then we are going to show a list of the different styles below:

Choker necklace

35 centimetres (14 in) to 41 centimetres (16 in) long and sits high on the neck.  Not only is a close-fitting type worn around the neck but also we make it of a variety of materials, including velvet, plastic, beads, leather, metal, such as silver, gold or platinum, etc. People embellish them in a variety of ways, including with sequins, studs, or a pendant.

Princess necklace

A princess necklet is 45 centimetres (18 in) to 50 centimetres (20 in) long, longer than a choker, but shorter than a matinee.

Matinee necklace

Comparatively a matinee length is 56 centimetres (22 in) to 58 centimetres (23 in) long — typically a single strand that rests at the top of the cleavage.

Opera necklace

An opera collar is 75 centimetres (30 in) to 90 centimetres (35 in) long and sits at the breastbone.

Rope necklace

A rope is longer than opera length.

Lariat necklace

A lariat is a very, very long variation on the rope, without a clasp and people regularly wear them draped multiple times around the neck. Moreover, you can  cross over its end, loop it, or knot it  in various ways. Not to mention some people also wear it as a lasso, incorporating a loop at one or both ends, or you can wear it doubled over with the ends passed through the loop formed in the middle.

Handmade possibilities

Not only our handmade collection is a varied and vibrant selection but they are also exceptionally designed pieces adorned with cut clear precision color crystals. You can customize them, selecting from a wide range of crystal colours, metal finishes and lengths.
