Long necklaces are definitely on trend right now, but they don’t work with every neckline. Remember today’s trick next time you want to shorten a necklace temporarily, creating a romantic look!All you need for this trick is a long necklace and a ribbon. I used our Merlot Fairy and Silk Ribbons to make my shorteners.
Lay your necklace flat in a U-shape. If your necklace has a clasp, position it at the top of one leg of the U. This will let you hide it under your ribbon! Keep the necklace in this position as you add your ribbon to make sure the two strands don’t cross when you wear them.You can use one longer piece of ribbon for a trailing effect. This silk ribbon is 42 inches long. String the ribbon through the loops at the top of the U, slip the necklace over your head, and tie the ribbon in a bow. If you’re having trouble with your bow, put the necklace on backwards to tie it and then rotate the ribbon around to the back.If you prefer a shorter shortener, cut your ribbon in half like I did with my Fairy Ribbon. Tie one half of the ribbon in a lark’s head knot on each side of the U and then tie the ends together into a small bow.Now you can wear the same necklace two different ways in no time!
