Adjustable Necklaces

We have created our necklaces so that they can be adjusted to fit any neck or neckline. They can be made longer with extenders and temporarily shorter when you follow the instructions below. This makes our jewelry much more versatile and allows you to be able to wear our jewelry with any outfit and in any season.

Necklace Extenders

Why should I use a Necklace Extender?
Necklace Extenders lengthen your necklaces up to 4 inches so they fit every outfit in any season and any size. Some of our customers use two at a time to make a necklace up to 8 inches longer. With the use of a necklace extender, any of our necklaces look great on turtle-neck sweaters as well as open neck dresses. To purchase extenders, see the Necklace Extender section in our Boutique.

How do I use a Necklace Extender?
Take the clasp of the necklace extender and attach it to the non-clasp end of the necklace. Then take the clasp of the necklace and hook it anywhere in the extender chain you want for the length you need.

We have Necklace Extenders available in Victorian Black, Victorian Brass, Victorian Silver, Sterling Silver and 14k Gold-Filled Medals.


Shortening a Necklace

If the necklace is too long, how do I make it shorter?
Most of our longer necklaces are made to be adjusted shorter. Welcome to shortening lesson 101:
  1. If you want to shorten it a little bit, hook the clasp of the necklace down the chain on the opposite side.
  2. If you want to shorten it a lot, put the necklace around your neck and pull it up to where you want to wear it. Then pinch both sides of the chain together at the back of your neck. Holding the chain where you've pinched it, bring the chain at the back around front (the pendant will go to the back). Looking in the mirror take the clasp of the necklace and first hook it into the chain on it's own side where you've pinched it; then, in addition, hook the clasp into the chain on the other side as well. Once the clasp is hooked into both sides, swing the chain around back and the pendant to the front. This makes your necklace as short as you want it and keeps the front centered. Note that this applies to our longer necklaces, not the ones that come in a length of 16" or less.

Distinctive Accents

We believe in the distinction and quality of our jewelry. We hope you enjoy the accents that we take the time to add to our jewelry. These accents allow the jewelry to look beautiful no matter how it moves while wearing it, and also provide you with increased quality and value.


Adornment at the end of the chain

We put a decorative accent at the end of the chain of each necklace so that when you shorten it you have a decoration down your back instead of a bare chain. The accent at the back of the chain is a surprise - it can be different on each necklace or piece of jewelry. (see photos for examples)





Victorian Embellishment on back

On many of our Blackened, Victorian Brass, Victorian Silver and Sterling Silver pieces, we finish the back of the pendant as well as the front. After all, pendants turn when you wear them and we want you looking gorgeous whatever direction your jewelry faces. The back of our pendants is a surprise - it may be different on each piece of jewelry. (see photos for examples)




Decoration on both sides of chain

We make the side metal accent pieces with two fronts put together so there is always a design showing when they turn, like our pendants. (see photos for examples)

Versatility

Collections by Style: Classic, Delicate & Dynamic

We have done our best to make shopping for Victorian Elegance Jewelry a more personalized and versatile experience. By creating categories for shopping, we hope we have made it easy to locate what you Want or Need from our Complete Collection to Bridal, Evening Elegance, New & Essential, Plus Size, Teens, and Themes. Be sure to check all the sub-categories in each section. Simply put your mouse over each of these shopping sections on the home page top navigation bar, and the sub-categories appear.

Austrian Crystal has been broken apart even more to make it easy to shop by Style with the following sub-categories:

  • Classic - for the classic, professional person who wants a bit of a statement, but not a lot.
  • Delicate - for those that are young at heart and like a delicate statement.
  • Dynamic - for the bold person that wants to make a statement with their jewelry.

To start shopping in the category of your choice go to our Boutique.


Mixing and Matching

We have chosen to use Austrian Crystal, glass and semi-precious stones in most of our pieces because it offers more versatility and quality than plastic.

Try this exercise for fun: When you get a new piece of Victorian Elegance Jewelry hold it loosely in your hand with the front facing you and gently drape it across the different clothes hanging in your closet. We are continually amazed at how the colors in one piece of jewelry can look so different when draped on all the different colors of our, or our customer's, wardrobes. It's a mixing and matching education. Have fun being creative.

Also, remember the value of extenders. They allow our shorter necklaces to be worn on turtle-necks and other sweaters as well as open necklines. Our necklaces look great on them.


Basics That Go with Everything

We have made sure to include in our line many styles in basic black, clear and aurora borealis (rainbow) jewelry. You can easily create sets that go with everything for everyday casual, business and elegant evenings. Make sure to check the Fashion Essential area in the New & Essential section.
