1. Choker

Choker necklaces, as the name implies, are designed to fit snugly to one’s neck. They are a popular necklace style and are best matched with off-shoulder tops. When it comes to jewelry display options, your best bet is a low-rise necklace bust display like the one shown below.

2. Pendant Necklace

Pendant necklaces are also some of the most popular necklace styles around. They certainly can be found amongst many jewelry lovers’ collections and even casual wearers alike. Pendant necklaces can be simple yet impactful depending on the pendant hanging from the piece’s chain link. Pendants come in many shapes and sizes such as individual gemstones (birthstones are popular picks), as well as gold or silver pendants that come in different forms. Another reason why they are popular with the public? They match well with almost all necklines making them a great accessory pick.

When choosing the necklace display stand for pendant necklaces, go by thickness as a factor. Thick chains need thick bars to properly support them so match accordingly.

3. Charm Necklace

While the previous example features just one pendant or trinket as a centerpiece, charm necklaces just like charm bracelets feature several pendants (charms). They usually feature thicker chan links than the usual necklace types or even their bracelet counterparts. Likewise, each charm is usually chosen by the wearer and often comes with significant meaning to them. A dainty jewelry organizer stand such as this one will look great and matches well with the romantic charms of charm necklaces.

4. Lariat

Lariats are pretty unique jewelry pieces as they do not come with the usual hook and clasp locking system that are common with necklaces. They take the shape of the letter “Y” with each end of the necklace knotted or looped for security. With this, it is the perfect accessory for low-cut tops and dresses. 

5. Chainlink

The simplest of all necklace types, chainlinks are necklaces that don’t have any additional stones or pendants hanging off of them ー put simply it is a minimalist piece of jewelry. It may come in different lengths and thicknesses and can be a versatile piece for both casual and formal wear.

Now, this is a fun design that is sure to be an eye-catcher. Twisted necklaces are usually made with beads or fabric by intertwining them to create a unique-looking jewelry piece. Intricate and most definitely interesting to look at, this type of design is usually seen in ethnic accessories.

These are large, intricate pieces that can entirely cover the area above the bustline. They are bold dramatic pieces that are not meant for the wallflower. They can stand on their own so they are best paired with solid-colored outfits.

Again, it’s important to match the piece to the displayer. To achieve balance, dainty and simple jewelry pieces should be displayed on display stands with thin bars, while those with intricate designs and larger pieces can be showcased in stands with thicker carriers such as the example above.

8. Lavaliere

For fans of plunging necklines, this is the necklace piece for you. Lavaliere necklaces can be likened to chandelier earrings as they both feature drop-style centerpieces. They are best displayed on bust-type stands.

At this point, we can easily say that jewelry display tools can make or break a jewelry rental showcase. Make sure you’re getting the right attention from potential buyers by choosing the right devices for your merchandise.
