Gold chains are the staple piece to any outfit. They can be worn as an everyday piece or dressed up with a pendant or charm to enhance a look. Layer gold necklaces in different lengths and styles to create a trendy layered look.
There are a variety of chain lengths for both women and men. To figure out the right length for you and your style, let's take a look at the most popular chain lengths and what they look best with. For women, there are six main necklace lengths, keeping in mind that a chain can be customized to any desired length. The shortest necklace length for women is 14 inches, called a choker, and fits tightly against the base of the throat. A choker works well with almost any outfit or look. The next is 16 inches, called a collar, and fits tightly around the neck. The collar length works best with open-neck clothing such as V-necks and off-the-shoulder tops. 18 inches, called a princess, fits right on the collarbone and also works well with almost everything. A matinee necklace, 20 to 24 inches in length, is worn between the collarbone and is a great length for both business and casual wear. An opera necklace, 28 to 36 inches in length, fits on the bust or an inch or two below and looks stunning on high necklines. Flowing at 36 to 42 inches is a rope necklace which is made to sit on or just below the center of the bust. This is a gorgeous addition to elegant business looks and evening wear. Men don't have as many chain length options as women. There are four main lengths for men: 18 inches, 20 inches, 22 inches and 24 inches. The most common length for men is 20 inches, fitting right at the collarbone.
White Gold Necklaces
A white gold chain is silver in color and is yellow gold in its natural form with rhodium plating. It is a perfect addition to any diamond pendant or charm. The white color allows you to wear it with any outfit as a classic style.
Rose Gold Necklaces
Rose gold necklaces are pinkish in color and are the newest color of gold that is currently trending. The copper tone of rose gold makes it feel very rich in color. This new look compliments many gemstones or can be worn as a rose gold chain to give your neck some shine.
Yellow Gold Necklaces
Yellow Gold Necklaces are a very traditional necklace worn by both women and men. Women?s gold chains can be layered with a pendant or charm to make it more classic and feminine. Men's yellow gold chains have also been very popular to allow him to show his distinct style. He may also want to add a pendant to his gold chain for a statement.
Sterling Silver necklaces
Sterling silver jewelry has been valued for centuries and once was considered more valuable than gold. The ancients called silver the lunar metal--cool and luminous, like the moon's reflection on water. Today, it's the most affordable of the precious metals. Like gold, pure silver is too soft to be used in jewelry. It's combined with other metals such as copper to make it more durable. Sterling silver jewelry--such as sterling silver necklaces--must contain at least 92.5% pure silver, which is why it's stamped as .925. Sterling silver can range from bright white to grayish white and can have a matte or shiny finish.

Different shapes, stones and designs make each locket unique. Explore an array of styles, from diamond lockets to gold lockets and more.
How do you layer necklaces?
The most important thing when wearing multiple necklaces is to vary the lengths. Try mixing shorter, finer chains with longer, thicker ones. You might find that doubling longer strands gives you just the effect you're hoping to pull off. Necklaces go from basic to bodacious with the introduction of color gemstones and pearls. You can drape bright colors of gems or beads together for a bold look or stay within the same color family for a softer look. Experiment with a variety of chains of different link styles and lengths. You can opt to stay within the same color palette-like all rose gold or all silver-or go for a combo. You can even find multi-strand necklaces that create this look for you. Lariat necklaces are another great way to add length and visual interest at the same time.
Chokers are a fashion trend that is making a major comeback both on the runway and in everyday life. Typically, a choker necklace is 14-16 inches and fits tightly against the base of the throat. Because of this, chokers work well with almost any outfit or look. Chokers are a tasteful complement to your look or a bold statement, depending on the width and extravagance of the choker. Chokers are also a great starting point in a layering necklace combination. Start with a choker and add a longer necklace or two to give your look a tasteful yet dramatic punch.
