Elevating your style isn't rocket science; sometimes, it's as simple as adding a pendant necklace. Uncover the best size and fit by understanding how different pendant shapes play with your unique style, body type, and face shape. Get it right, and that perfect pendant becomes your beauty spotlight, enhancing your best features. Below, our top tips to finding the best right pendant shape for you.


Factors To Consider When Choosing A Necklace Pendant Size And Shape 

Whether you privilege style over practicality, or you’re just looking for something intricate enough to spark interest—these tips will help you choose the right pendant that brings out the best versions of yourself.


Face Shape 

Rounder faces should opt for angular shapes. Avoid chokers that can make your face appear more round. If you have an oval-shaped face, you’re fortunate—most shapes will look good on you. Those with a square face should steer clear of angular lines and go for curved or circular pendants, like ovals or hoops. Oval or teardrop pendants can complement a diamond-shaped face, balancing the forehead and chin width. Heart-shaped faces go best with V-shaped or triangular pendants.



Once you’ve narrowed down your search, take a look at your closet. What kind of clothes and accessories do you usually wear? If you usually go for modern or rock inspired looks, opt for a sleek, angular design. If classic and minimalist is more your thing, choose a timeless round or oval pendant.

Also consider the vibe that you want to project. Are you more of a subtle, dainty type? Then classic shapes like open hearts, round circulars or marquise shapes would be a great fit. If you want something more dramatic, look for statement styles like long teardrop shapes or baroque details.


Chain Length 

Finding the perfect pendant is only half the battle—you'll need a chain or necklet to hold it in place! 

Chokers typically sit snugly around the neck and are best suited to pendants that won't hang too low. A princess necklace also works great with small pendants, up to medium-sized ones. Opera length necklaces are the most versatile option that go with pendants of every size and shape as they’re just long enough to sit perfectly on the decollete.

For small to petite frames, a longer necklace that draws the eye downwards is a great way to create an illusion of a fuller bust. Short necklaces, such as chokers and block necklaces, are ideal if you have a fuller figure. Wider shoulders? A longer necklace will draw attention to the centre of the chest, while those with slimmer shoulders should go for shorter designs.

Choose a longer pendant for a deep V-neck or off-the-shoulder blouse. Or if you're wearing a high-necked shirt or crew-neck, get a shorter necklace that won’t get lost in the fabric.


Comfort And Wearability 

A pendant's shape can affect how comfortable it is to wear. Some shapes, like teardrops or egg-shaped oval ones, tend to hang more smoothly against the body, while more intricate or angular pendant shapes may have edges that catch or dig into the skin. Adjustable chains are perfect if you often switch up your look or attend events with different dress codes.

Mix & Match: Styling Necklace Pendants With Other Accessories 

Take your style up a notch by pairing pendant necklaces with other accessories! Make a statement with layering contrasting chain lengths for a cascading effect. Or mix up the sizes: combine delicate chains with chunkier pendants for standout style.

Get creative with geometry and match your pendant with earrings and bracelets of similar/contrasting motifs. Try pairing a white gold pendant necklace with white gold earrings and bracelets for a stunning look you won't find anywhere else. For a modern sparkle, pair a diamond-shaped pendant necklace with heart-shaped earrings and bangles.


Finding The Right Pendant Shape Doesn’t Need To Be Difficult 

So how do you choose the right necklace pendant size and shape? The key is understanding how different shapes interact with your body type, facial features, and personal style. What flatters your silhouette, complements your complexion, speaks to personal sensibilities? Confidently tune out the noise. Trust your tastes, flatter your features, express your essence—the only “right” necklace is the one that makes you beam each time you lock eyes in the mirror.
