Keeping It Classy: Best Ways to Keep Your Necklace Chain Clasp in the Back
There's nothing more frustrating than when you're wearing a beautiful necklace, and the clasp keeps making an unsightly appearance in the front. Not only does it disrupt the aesthetic of your jewelry, but it can also be a constant annoyance. Fortunately, there are several ingenious ways to keep your necklace chain clasp in the back, ensuring that your jewelry always looks its best.
If you already have a store-bought necklace with a simple lobster or spring clasp and want to prevent it from coming forward, there are a few effective methods you can try:
1. Chain Extender:
These handy little accessories add extra length to your necklace, and usually have a decorative bead or tag at the end that adds weight. You can easily attach the extender to your necklace's existing clasp, and voila! Your necklace will stay where it belongs whether you use it to extend your necklace or not.

2. Employ a Rubber Band or Clear Hair Elastic:
Wrap a small, clear rubber band or a clear hair elastic around the clasp and the last link of your necklace chain. Make sure it's tight enough to provide friction but not too tight to damage the chain. This method will create resistance, making it more difficult for the clasp to move forward.
3. Use a Necklace Holder or Decorative Pin:
Attach a small necklace holder or a decorative pin to the back of your shirt or dress, and fasten your necklace clasp to it. This way, the clasp is anchored to your clothing, preventing it from sliding forward. Choose a holder or pin that complements your outfit to add a touch of style.
4. Attach a Bead with a Head Pin:
Thread a small, decorative bead onto wire head pin,Pass the wire through the last link of your necklace chain, create a loop (wrap wire around itself above the bead). Attach the lobster clasp to the loop and secure it tightly. The bead and wire will add weight, preventing the clasp from moving forward.
5. Attach a Small Pendant or Charm:
Add a small pendant or charm to the last link of your necklace chain, just above the clasp. You will do this with a jump ring. The weight of the pendant will help to keep the clasp in place. Choose a pendant or charm that complements the necklace's design for a cohesive look.
