Examples of necklace in a Sentence

  1. Serena Williams:

    I'm shaping my brows today, but not for you, just because I want to, do you like my necklace ... Do you like my braids?

  2. AiR:

    we may think it is a necklace,a bangle or a ring. No! It's not - there is Gold in Everything

  3. Conseuquel:

    Who would have known? I was walking in a mall and between the crowd of shoppers shoving around and wandering about their business my eyes meet a familiar face. A face I haven't seen in years. Our gazes meet. We stare for mere seconds before the both of us look away pretending one hadn't seen the other and we quickly disappear into our now separate lives. But when I went home, I still had the Best Friends necklace you gave me in Elementary and the Senior ring we had in high school , stuffed in some drawer beneath clothes and books gathering dust as the years rolled by. I still have that photo album that starts with our picture as little girls dressing up as princesses to the day we held certificates with our gowns on. All through that journey we had been hand in hand from our first day of school to our first fight to prom night. From skipping class to plotting against teachers to every crush we had. Every exam we failed and every rule we broke. The times we sat together in detention and the times we never bothered showing up. All the hard times we pushed through and all the success we celebrated. Every fire alarm, birthday candle and breakup. We've been with each other through all and more until the day college split us apart. Your texts became shorter and your calls became rare. And I wonder how brutal graduation was for ripping us apart like that. Yesterday inseparable sisters, today a stranger.

  4. Rita Rudner:

    My husband gave me a necklace. It's fake. I requested fake. Maybe I'm paranoid, but in this day and age, I don't want something around my neck that's worth more than my head.

  5. Ron Zuckerman:

    I can give you this floppy thing like a necklace that's just wiggling -around and you can actually fold it, all of a sudden the helical folds start to become stable because all the magnets line up.
