Necklaces for the Woman Over 50

Cozi Rosie will be modeling different necklaces for multiple necklines today. As I am now 5 years older than I was in 2010, I’ve decided to do a bit of experimentation with what necklaces look best with my clothes and on my neck. I hope you will share your thoughts on necklaces for the woman over 50.

I’ve noticed on some of my morning shows that many women have had work done, and how do I know this? Of course, it is by looking at their neck. Therefore, it got me to thinking that we should choose very carefully what attention we draw to our décolletage. Women like Diane Keaton wear turtlenecks and scarves, Jane Fonda has been seen wearing chokers, but as I perused the internet, one thing seems to stand out. Most women over 50 try to avoid drawing attention to their necklines. It is my desire to grow old as gracefully as my fun will allow me, so here are a few looks I might still consider.

John Medeiros Necklace

A John Medeiros Peridot Pendant on a silver omega chain fits this scoop neckline perfectly.

Necklaces for Women Over 50

A Simple Pearl Pendant echoes the V-neck of this blouse.

Short Necklaces

A trio of short necklaces also lay in a V shape.

Omega Chain

Gold Omega Chain with Chocolate Diamonds Pendant for an elegant statement. (For all those red carpet events here on the coast.)   😉

Necklaces for Women Over 50

Different lengths of John Medeiros Jewelry and a piece from Estate Jewelers.

Charm Necklace

 A long charm necklace will draw the eye away from the neck.

Top with Netted Yoke

The details of the netted yoke are all the adornment this neckline needs. (IMO) Some funky earrings would be such fun.

Studded Wrap Blouse

This Chico’s animal print wrap has small silver studs across the blouse. I would wear some pretty studs or a pair of long dangly earrings with a stack of silver, black and white bracelets. No necklace needed.

Gold Choker

For a younger lady, this is such a fun necklace. But, as I looked in the mirror with this choker, I decided I should leave this to the 20-30 something year olds. What do you think? It is definitely a statement piece and I’m thinking that my statements now need to come from my wrists, ears, fingers and the enchanting stories I tell here on CoziNest. (wink, wink)

Cross with Pearls

This is a recent purchase that I love. If you wanted to draw attention away from your neck, would you wear this?

Boatneck Lace Dress

And here is Cozi Rosie in a lace dress. What would you wear with this?

Now, let me throw the proverbial monkey wrench into this whole post. Remember seeing your grandmother in her “house dress”? This is a modern day version. My nanny cooked and cleaned in her house dress. I might add a small strand of pearls, clean my jewelry and cook up a mimosa.

    I got a little nervous by that title since I just turned 50, but luckily I usually only wear longer necklaces so I am safe!! Of course if it were something I really really liked I wear it regardless – ha! BTW, I really want that long chain on the green top.

    Very interesting post. You have given me much to think about. I always love to see what over 50 women are thinking about “what to wear.” I always want to look nice, but am not one to try and change my natural look. Aging is just part of life, so I say just age gracefully. I am generally a simple girl wearing a few pieces all the time. My daughter is constantly trying to get me to branch out.
    Oh, and I love the house dress. Brings back lots of memories of my grandmother.

    I loved this jewelry fashion show! I’ve never really thought about the fact that the jewelry close to the neck draws attention to the neck…Hmmm. I need to keep that in mind. Don’t want to draw extra attention to my turkey neck! I love that big statement piece, the cross, and yes, I would definitely wear it. I think it commands so much attention that nobody will notice the neck. I’m with you on that fringy one…looks like a young lady piece. Now I’m wondering if a long one, like the charm necklace, draws attendtion to the mid-section that is not all that pretty on me anymore, but I sure do like it. I think I would still wear it. In closing, I’ll say this: If a lady is dressed in a well coordinated way and the jewelry adds something to the story that makes sense, you will feel good about the way you look and therefore that confidence will translate to others…and we shouldn’t have to worry about our turkey necks!
    Enjoyed this one!

    The big gold cross is beautiful. I think it’s my favorite!
