Q&A: What Necklace to Wear with a Turtleneck Sweater

Theory \'Juliet\' Cashmere SweaterQ:  I just found a great bargain on a black cashmere turtleneck and love it.  But it seems a little plain to me - I’m just used to seeing my neckline and my favorite necklace sticking out.  I’ve been told by some girls I know that a turtleneck works well with something over it - but what?

A:  With high necked shirt styles, like turtlenecks, you want to counterbalance with a long necklace.  And the more substantial the turtleneck, the more visual weight the long necklace needs to hold.  A chunky turtleneck, for example, requires a heavier chain or larger, bolder stones.  A more lightweight turtleneck, however, can be paired with a more delicate necklace.

Junk Necklace by Erica AnenbergSince the turtleneck you’re accessorizing is a simple, elegant black, you may want to pair it with a necklace with more of an edge.  For an edgy elegant look, you may want to try a necklace like Erica Anenberg’s "Junk Necklace."  It features a 30" sterling silver chain and unusual found item charms  that should contrast nicely with the sophistication of the black turtleneck.

Petra Gold Filled Chalcedony Necklace

Petra Gold Filled Chalcedony NecklaceOnce designer Sandra Mardini saw these green chalcedony stones, she instantly designed the Petra necklace in her head…and then created the necklace while listening to her favorite Bob Marley CD.

Fun fact about Sandra?  She’s absolutely obsessed with music and has over 1300 CDs.  Her taste in music, which ranges from techno to classic Springsteen to Arabic pop, is as eclectic as her jewelry collection.

$169 at Sandra Mardini.
