CHOOSE THE RIGHT LENGTH AND WIDTH
A choker on a short neck can make that neck look stubby — and possibly wider than it actually is. A wide and short neck can’t rock a choker, especially a wide one. Please stay away from choker necklaces if you are in the “WhatsApp group” of women with wide and short necks 🙏.
This choker is not for her type of neck.
What then should you wear? You may ask. Choose a necklace 20 to 24 inches long; this will create an illusion of a longer neck.

A choker/collar necklace is best suited for ladies with longer necks and/or a slim silhouette.
LESS WILL ALWAYS BE MORE!
The old saying, ‘less is more’ holds true when choosing jewelry for your owambe. Your jewelry should not take attention away from your outfit, it ought to complement it. It is called an “accessory” for a reason…

Your jewelry should act as an accent to your dress and highlight it in scale. It should never overpower your dress.
MIND YOUR NECKLINE
You won’t want to wear a necklace if your dress has an ornate neckline. It would look too busy and out of place! Rather than wear a necklace, wear an elegant pair of drop earrings to accentuate the look. Gbenga Artsmith Jewelry has an array of such gorgeous earrings you can pick from (visit www.gbengaartsmith.com)
The necklace wasn’t neccessary considering the detailing on the neckline of her blouse.
MATCH YOUR NECKLACE WITH THE OUTFIT STYLE
If the style of your dress is simple, then making a statement with a bejeweled necklace will give you a stunning look.
In addition, if you are wearing a high-neck blouse or dress, DO NOT accessorize with a short necklace…Either go without a necklace or if you must wear one, it should be a long necklace like the “TORERA” Neckpiece by Gbenga Artsmith that the lady in the picture below has on.
COORDINATE YOUR JEWELRY PIECES WELL
Choosing the right size of jewelry will enhance your “Owambe” look a great deal. Rocking a statement necklace with equally bold earrings is a major fashion faux pas! There is no other way to describe such over-the-top jewelry styling. Your jewelry pieces must be well coordinated and not in “competition” with one another.
A statement necklace and bold earrings are a No-no!
Statement necklaces should be paired with simple stud earrings or moderate-sized drop earrings. See the picture below to check out how we deftly matched our multi-strand “TEMILADE” coral + pearl necklace with pearl stud earrings- that’s how it is done! 👌
