I wear the necklace by itself to showcase the design. I have dressed up a white linen shirt with blue jeans and a navy dress with this necklace. It is a great pop of color. The chain is shorter and does not hang well with a collar. Collarless sweaters and shirts do not compete with the design. I highly recommend this pattern and design to accessorize your clothing.
I do not wear the necklace with the other matching pieces in the set-they are big and it is too overwhelming. The earrings I wear with either the ring or the wrist cuff only.
