Darling Husband gave me a necklace with a pendant for Christmas. I love wearing it, but it drives me crazy because every time I look in the mirror or feel where it is, the clasp of the necklace is right next to the pendant (it moves from the back of my neck, to the front). I’m always shifting it back to the back of my neck – and I’m wondering why it does this.
The chain is pretty thin – and I’m wondering if I need a thicker chain. The pendant isn’t necessarily heavy – but it’s a long, drop pendant (maybe 2 inches long).

Pin it to the back of your clothes. I don’t know if a thicker chain will make a difference, have you tryed just a different chain? maybe the one you have is slippery and that’s why it keeps turning.

I think it has to do with the weight of the pendant vs the weight of the chain. I have a heavier pendant on a thin chain and it does the same thing

I thought it was just a gravity thing, that the clasp always works its way down to the front. My Fiance gave me a heart pendant necklace for my birthday just after we met, and I have yet to go a day where the clasp isn’t at the front. *shrug*

It pretty much boils down to gravity and your movement. As long as the pendant is free to move on the chain, the chain will roll around as you move and the clasp will just keep working its way downward. Depending on the type of pendant, sometimes you can fix the pendant to the middle of the chain to stop this from happening, but often that isn’t possible and you just need to get used to adjusting it all the time.

I’m pretty sure every necklace I own does this. I always thought it was a gravity thing.
