The rose is a classic symbol of romance and a rose necklace can be worn on almost any occasion to celebrate romance and nature. They may wear the necklace every day or only on special occasions. Thousands of jewelry designers have fashioned necklaces in the shape of a rose.
Where to Buy a Rose Necklace
Because the rose is such a common symbol in jewelry, most women want to find a necklace that is unique. Flea markets and thrift stores are great places to find antique necklaces that attract attention. Women who are looking for a modern necklace that is one-of-a-kind should look at listings on Etsy.com. Most of the sellers on Etsy don’t make the same necklace more than once. This makes it much easier to find a unique necklace.
Women who are looking for a trendy rose necklace should consider the rose pendant with hemtatite and crystal by Fossil. The pendant is about half-an-inch long and has beautifully shaped petals. Some of the petals are set apart with crystals and the other petals are plain. The pendant has the antiqued look that many women are wearing right now. It can be found at Macys stores. Another option for a modern necklace is the Lucky Brand “Take Ivy” necklace. Its colors are gold and cream and the necklace measures 17.5 inches in length. It features three cream-colored beads with bouquet designs carved into them. The necklace’s Y-shape goes well with low necklines. It can be found at Sears.
Choosing A Necklace
Finding the right rose necklace to wear with your outfit can be tough, especially if you are dressing for a formal occasion such as a wedding or ball. There are so many options when it comes to necklaces and other jewelry that having to choose just one or two pieces can be overwhelming. It is a good idea to look at the cut of your dress or top when you’re deciding which necklace to wear. Most women wear necklaces that don’t hang below their neckline.
A choker necklace stays very close to the neck so it can be worn with almost any neckline. Chokers are commonly worn with formal dresses because they can be very flashy and they bring attention to the face. They look best with dresses that have high necklines. By contrast, a Y-drop necklace looks best with a low scoop neckline or a sweetheart neckline. This type of necklace also looks great with strapless dresses or tops with a sweetheart neckline.
One of the best things about wearing a rose necklace is its versatility. A woman who is planning to go out after work can wear the same necklace with her business suit that she wears with a sexy dress or top and not look out of place. She just has to make sure that the type of necklace she is wearing works with the neckline of both outfits.
