What is a drop necklace?

Certain jewellery pieces stand the test of time, their classic appeal meaning they’re always ‘in style’. One such piece is the drop necklace – a statement piece designed to draw attention to the chest and décolletage. Perfectly positioned next to an evening dress, let’s get into what makes the drop necklace so popular, and how to style. 

What defines a drop necklace? 

A drop necklace features a long chain that ends in a single piece or cluster of diamonds, gems, beads, or other decoration that ‘drops’ down from the neck. The beauty of the drop necklace lies in its versatility; it can be dainty and subtle or bold and dramatic, making it suitable for both casual wear and formal occasions. 

The allure of the drop necklace lies in its ability to draw the eye downward, creating a flattering line that elongates the neck and adds an air of elegance to any outfit. Worn alone, it draws attention to a low-neck dress or adds intrigue over a plain roll neck. But equally, it can be layered up with shorter chains, for a more casual look. 

How to style drop necklaces 

  • Evening wear pair: Pair a delicate diamond drop necklace with a V-neck gown to create a focal point that draws attention to your face. 
  • Casual chic: For a casual yet chic look, layer a longer drop necklace with shorter necklaces over a plain T-shirt, jumper or blouse. 
  • Office elegance: Add a touch of elegance to your workwear by pairing a mid-length drop necklace with a button-up shirt or a high-neck dress. 
  • Bridal beauty: For brides looking for understated elegance, a drop necklace offers a timeless look that complements both traditional and modern gowns. It looks especially great with a strapless dress and an up-do.
