I need a necklace.....

 ....for my new dress.  I am going to a function middle of March and I have a new dress.  I do not have a necklace that will suit it, but I think it needs something.
It has a round scoop neck so no longer than a 16" as it needs to sit fairly close to the neck or it would dangle below the neckline of the dress. 
The colour is black with a flower pattern of purple/pink.
As the back has a fancy fold effect I think it would be nice to have a necklace with a fancy bit at the back to show it off.
That is just my opinion, any other suggestions gratefully received as I am not very good at jewellery. Help!!

Here is my dress -

Love the little rose details on the chain
of this dainty piece

I like this, but I'm concerned the petals
might tip up and not lay flat

This is gorgeous, but would
 it be too fancy?

This is really pretty

I like this, not sure if the colour is right
I like this classical look with the twist of
a dragonfly

As you can see I have shortlisted from the many gorgeous designs that I was shown on Folksy.  Pretty Beautiful Designs seem to be on my wavelength as I like many of their pieces.  The pearls with dragonfly are one of my favourites, but the lovely floral necklace from MillieBeads is also wonderful.  Just not sure yet on my final choice. 


  1. what a gorgeous dress.
    Won't be long til you find the perfect necklace.

  2. .What a lovely dress, I'm sure you'll be spoiled for choice for a necklace

  3. I'm so thrilled that you have considered my necklace, thank you for showing the picture. I think that Max's little rose on a silver chain would look perfect with your dress.

  4. Thank you for considering my necklace :) i love your choices, its going to be hard to pick one :)

  5. I love the floral necklace but I think it would be too much with the bold florals on your dress. I would have suggested plain pearls, so the pearls with the dragonfly would be my choice from those above.

  6. They are all lovely but I like Chiyo's best, but I may be overly hooked on the vintage'y look! The dragonfly and pearls would sit nicely with the neckline - but I wonder if black beads would be better...?

  7. I received my necklace this morning. It is the silver chain with a pink rose by Maxineveronica and it is absolutely beautiful and really well made. Thank you Max.
