A cross on a necklace for a woman is typically a sign of religious beliefs. People who wear a cross on their necklace (as women's cross necklaces) are typically Christians, who believe in Jesus Christ. The cross represents the crucifix, Christians believe that Jesus was nailed to a cross where he died, he was then buried and rose again three days later. Today, He lives in heaven and they are waiting for the second coming where they believe everyone will be judged for how they have lived their lives on earth. There are some people who wear a cross ( on women's cross necklaces) on their chain as a fashion statement, they are not believers and it has no significant meaning to them. However, there are some people who are offended by the cross (even when on women's cross necklaces), they don't hold Christian values and are not interested in their religious belief system. Therefore, if you are buying women's cross necklaces as gifts, it is important that you know your recipients very well and know what they believe in (we want the women's cross necklaces to be worn with pride, not thrown out).
Choosing the Right Cross Necklace For a Woman
Whether you are purchasing women's cross necklaces for yourself, or you are buying one as a gift, it is important that the person wearing it looks good. The majority of women have an extensive collection of necklaces (including women's cross necklaces), and out of that collection of about five or six gold women's cross necklace they probably only wear one. Now it might be that they only like that one (cross) necklace, the other necklaces (including women's cross necklaces) they have in their collection now might have been part of a fashion trend that they have now grown out of, or they may have been gifts from ex-lovers and they don't want to be reminded of them anymore. However, the main reason why a gold women's cross necklace is left in the jewellery box (as stated by multiple women) is because it's not flattering, and it doesn't work well with anything in the womans' wardrobe. The good news is that you can avoid making the same mistake twice and find a gold women's cross necklace that will be the right fit.
Measure Your Neck Before Purchasing Women's Cross Necklaces
If you are buying a silver women's cross necklace for someone as a gift, you won't be able to measure their neck. However, if you pay attention to the necklace (if you're lucky its a cross necklace) they wear the most often, you can take that necklace and measure its extended length. Think about the whole body of the woman, from the shape of her face, her height to her general body type. However, starting with the neck is always a good place to begin, since any necklace (including a women's cross necklace) you buy is going to touch the neck, it's important that you pay attention to that area. Necks are measured in length and in width, depending on the age of the woman, the condition of the neck also has to be considered - some of them also have wrinkles around the neck. A long neck is in this case a great feature - because all necklaces (including women's cross necklaces) suit a long neck. However, short necks or wrinkly necks don't have the same privilege and not every cross necklace in our collection is going to work well on them. However, it is also important to remember that there is an exception to every rule, so if you are buying the gold or silver women's cross necklace for yourself, make sure you consider your skins condition before making your purchase.
Widths and Lengths
Chokers look great on thin long necks. However, a choker on a small neck won't have the same effect. It can make the neck look stubby and wide, a wide short neck can't wear a choker, it simply won't look right. An alternative option is to buy a gold or silver women's cross necklace that is about 20 to 24 inches in length, this will make the neck look longer. Chokers don't work well on wrinkled necks either because they draw attention to all the wrong places, which is the last thing some women with wrinkles want. A longer silver women's cross necklace will draw attention away from the wrinkles and cause the eyes to focus on the cross on the necklace instead.
Another important part of the body to think about when buying a cross necklace for a woman is the upper torso. Typically, a women's cross necklace 22 inches or shorter sits just above or it rests on the bust. When the cross necklace is slightly longer, it is important that it works with the bust and the torso, this is especially true if the person is full-figured or short.
Your Height Is Important When Purchasing A Cross Necklace
A lot of women make the mistake of not considering their height when purchasing a cross necklace. This makes sense because women who are average or just about average in height can wear a cross necklace of any length (although taller women are probably not suited to wear short cross necklaces). On the other hand, short women are going to be overwhelmed by long or chunky cross necklaces. Women who are 5 foot 4 inches or smaller should choose a cross necklace that sits just below or on the collarbone. If you are the wearer of a women's cross necklace and want to purchase multiple women's cross necklaces in the future, go to a store that sells one and try it on, look in the mirror and decide whether you like it or not, if so wear/buy it, if not, go for something else.
The Shape of Your Face
Face shape is another important aspect when it comes to choosing the right cross necklace. The majority of women either have a round, oval, heart-shaped or square face. Some finitely shaped faces can wear any length necklace, but others can't. The oval face can get away with wearing most cross necklace lengths; however, it is also important to pay attention to neck, height and body size. Women with a round face want to choose cross necklaces that are slightly longer because they create the illusion of a "V" shape that is slimming because it glides away from the face. Stay away from the round choker because it will make your face look even more round. Women with a heart shaped face can get away with wearing round chokers because the roundness levels out the heart shaped angles and planes. Rectangular and long faces also work well with round chokers.
The clothes you wear on a daily basis are also an important element of the cross necklace decision buying process. If you are someone who wears turtlenecks a lot, long beads or rope chains look great with them; however, if you are short or full figured, this may not be a good idea. Once you have decided what you are going to wear often with the women's cross necklace you purchase, just make sure that the women's cross necklace will enhance the overall appearance of the outfit(s).
