Style Tips

For our top 10 picks in sapphire necklaces, we like many of the necklaces alone…for the most part. However, there are always exceptions to the rule and if you feel you can “rock” another gemstone necklace with it, make it either a shorter or longer piece.

Some of the simpler ones could be worn with another longer or shorter plain chain for a very pretty look. You could also try a set of pearls with one of the pieces and see what you think.

Ecksand

You can’t go wrong pairing these pieces with a sapphire, diamond, or cubic zirconia earrings and a bracelet of the same. The more you add, the dressier your look. The key is being able to wear your pieces with confidence.

Layering is often personal and meaningful. If it feels right to you, do it. We also wanted the pieces we chose to be “giftable”. All of the necklaces chosen are great for special occasion giving.

DHgate

Think of: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, confirmations, first communions, Valentine’s Day, and more. The sky is limit when you can give it; use your imagination.

Graff

You can also purchase these pieces to commemorate an occasion of some importance to you. Or, just get one just because it makes your heart happy!

Criteria Used for Evaluation

When choosing the necklaces in our top 10 picks, we had certain standards to meet. How does a piece hold up under every day, wear and what gives it that quality?

All of the pieces presented are durable because they are from quality materials and, with care, should last you a long while. We strongly recommend following the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and storing your pieces.

It’s not all about how a piece will hold up, though, a necklace has to be flattering and beautiful. The gemstones in these pieces, either natural or synthetic, are both flattering and beautiful.

They are quality stones and with proper care will bring you joy for a long time to come. The metals we chose complimented the necklaces and, as a result, will compliment you, the wearer.

But, you won’t wear anything if it’s not comfortable and there are many different ways to define comfort. We didn’t choose anything that would snag on clothing or get caught in your hair. That is something easy to wear.

Also, it had to be lightweight and have a user-friendly clasp. If you feel bogged down by a piece, it’s going to feel clunky and you won’t wear it.

The sapphire pieces we chose also had to be easy to pair. In our estimation, if it doesn’t look good with other pieces, you won’t wear it and it’s not worth purchasing. Can you wear it with earrings, a bracelet, a ring, or even another necklace?

Easy to pair means easy to wear!
