This summer is all about necklines. Whether you are wearing a halter top dress to happy hour in DuPont Circle or a V-neck shirt on a Sunday afternoon in Rock Creek Park you need to make sure you have the perfect accessory for every neckline.

V-Neck: Wear a classic piece that ends just above the neckline. The pairing is simple and sweet. This three pronged solitaire pendant is a perfect choice for a simple diamond necklace.


Off Shoulder: An open neckline leaves room to experiment with a statement piece like this aerial elegance necklace that will make you feel like a princess.


High Neck: This style looks best with longer chain style necklaces. Our inspiration is a Toulouse Pink Opal and Black Diamond Pear Pendant.


Halter: This style is best paired with a triangle shaped pendant like the Hearts on Fire Aerial Triple Diamond Necklace or a short choker.


Sweetheart: This neckline shows the most skin so it looks more balanced and classy when paired with a necklace. A set of pearls or statement piece like this exquisite Suna emerald and diamond necklace will work best.


Square: A square neckline is one of the hardest necklines which is why a simple yet elegant chain, like this Beaudry necklace, can go a long way.


Crew Neck: This style might be the easiest because it comes to the neckline and looks great with most necklaces. Collar or bib necklaces work best with this style!  This beautiful vintage diamond collar necklace will do the trick.
