We all know that accessories can either make or break your outfit but pairing the right necklace with each neckline isn’t always the easiest task, especially when you have so many to choose from!  So how do you make sure your necklace complements your outfit and doesn’t distract from it?

We’ve considered every neckline possible to take the guessing game out of your morning ritual, using some of our favorite handcrafted styles from NOVICA’s jewelry collection Read on for our personal guide to pairing necklaces with necklines.


A simple pendant necklace or a Y-shaped necklace complements this neckline perfectly. For a deeper V, play with multi-layered or wraparound styles.

Go from cozy to chic with a dazzling chain necklace. Intricately worked chains need no extra embellishments.  A colorful, eclectic pendant necklace can also add a festive touch.

 Open Collared Shirt:

For an open-collared neckline, we love a simple pendant or charm necklace peeking through. The spot of color is quite eye-catching and provides the perfect accent to your ensemble.

Square Neck:

This neckline can be a little tricky, but pendants with an angular finish or geometric statement pieces always harmonize well. It works best when the pendant is long enough to hang below the neckline of your shirt.
