If you’re looking for the best necklaces to take to the office, you’ve come to the right place. For this article, we put together a list of the most trending necklaces for the professional woman, and we’re sure you’ll find just what you need by the end of it. 

The nature of your job will heavily impact the type of jewelry that is more appropriate for you. From understated and subtle pieces perfect for corporate offices to edgier designs fit for a creative role, we’ve listed the best necklaces you can get to look dazzling around the clock, especially from 9 to 5. 

Why Looking Good at Work is Important

The way you look is often the first thing everyone notices about you. Dressing professionally can help you achieve a positive first impression when meeting new people in the workplace. It also raises your confidence and makes you feel amazing in your skin. 

There's only one problem with first impressions: people form them subconsciously, and much faster than you’d think. It takes someone about seven seconds to decide how they feel about you; sometimes it only takes two seconds. 

Being clean, well-dressed, and looking stylish influences the first impression we leave. And it continues to influence the way people see us long after they get to know us.

But looking good is not only about the clothes you wear. Jewelry plays an essential role in your overall look; it ties your style together and helps you achieve a more professional and modern appearance. 

Wearing Jewelry to the Office

Choosing jewelry to wear to the office is an important step in your everyday routine. The kind of jewelry you wear to your workplace will define the impression you make on others. 

Wearing jewelry to the office is a great way to make yourself stand out. For this guide, we decided to zoom in and focus on one of the main pieces in workplace jewelry: necklaces. 

We’ll explore six different necklaces that every professional woman should have to create lasting first impressions.
