Helpful Tips When Buying Long Distance Necklaces
Choosing the Right Necklace Size

It’s a common scenario but choosing the right necklace length for you and your partner is fairly easy. The right size isn’t just about the size of the neck but also comes down to the type of necklace that it is and the style your partner likes.
If you’re still unsure then it’s a good idea to measure yourself for a necklace and also get some tips on which types of necklaces go with different options. Want to keep it as a surprise? Try and measure one of their other necklaces or get advice from friends or family.
What to Think About When Buying a Necklace for a Man
In many ways getting a necklace for a man is a lot harder than with a woman. Men can be pickier and a lot of them won’t like the traditional types of jewelry with cute pendants and the fine chains that you often see.
Consider the type of person they are, what style they have as well as matching it to any existing jewelry that they wear. If you follow these simple rules then it’s going to be hard to go wrong!
What to Think About When Buying a Necklace for a Woman
Necklaces can be easier to buy for a woman as they are a lot more common for women to wear and there tend to be many more choices. However, more choice can make you doubt which would be a perfect option.
Looking at her existing jewelry can be a good start as there may be a specific style she likes or more importantly, a specific metal or material. You shouldn’t overthink it too much though. If you get a high-quality piece of thoughtful jewelry, it’ll surely be a hit.
Necklace Care and Maintenance
Maintenance of a necklace can be like tidying your house or car. If you do a little bit often it can be easy to keep it perfect. If you leave it for too long, however, it can suddenly get a lot harder. Here are some general tips for keeping that necklace sparkling:
- Wipe it down with a damp cloth
- Keep it flat and untangled or hanging when not in use
- Consider the type of metal being cleaned
Gold doesn’t tarnish easily and therefore maintenance is fairly simple. Warm water and mild can be used with either your fingers or a soft brush. Rinse it thoroughly after use and then lay it on a dry cloth for it to dry.
Silver does tarnish easily and therefore requires more care. It’s best to get a silver cleaning to keep it shining. For regular cleaning, warm water and mild soap will do and carefully dried. If you don’t want silver polish, you can use toothpaste instead.
Stainless Steel Necklaces
There is a reason stainless steel is so common and that’s because it’s incredibly durable and hard-wearing. Maintenance is fairly easy and all that's really required is a bit of mild soap and a soft cloth or brush.
Keep your leather necklace separate from your metal jewelry and don’t wear it out in the wet. Avoid water exposure as much as possible and use a leather spray to prevent cracking.
