Glow Stick Necklaces Come In Different Designs

Author : Chris Phillips


Glow stick necklaces have been around a while now, but there are plenty of imaginative takes on them that develop the original, simple idea into all kinds of new directions. If you're looking for something a bit distinctive and unusual for a night out, take a look around – there are plenty of sites out there selling glow products of all different kinds, and you'll likely find something worth picking up that doesn't break the bank. Glow stick necklaces can consist of a single thin tube, typically around two feet long, but there are lots of variations. In fact, glow jewellery of all kinds is really taking off.

Glow stick necklaces are a simple variation of the original glow stick. This clever little gadget is an unassuming plastic cylinder, perhaps six inches long. When you snap it and give it a shake, the chemicals inside are mixed and a 'chemiluminescent' reaction results – producing the bright glow you'll have seen at after-dark events like bonfire night or Halloween parties. The light typically lasts 8 to 12 hours, and the sticks come in different colours. Bright white ones are usually employed for military and emergency services' use, but coloured ones can be made with the simple addition of a dye. Green ones are popular amongst party-goers. With a little imagination, a whole load of products have been developed from this idea, including glow stick necklaces and all sorts of other jewellery.

First up are the variations on the original idea. If a simple string-like glow stick necklace isn't enough for you, take a look at the pendant types you can now buy. Crosses, hearts and other shapes can all be found to hang from a neck chain or glow in the dark necklace. Interestingly, little glow sticks – perhaps an inch or two long – are popular pendants for glow stick necklaces, referencing the original idea that has become such a runaway success. One of the best things about them is that the glowing tubes are quite flexible, so you can actually come up with your own designs if you're feeling creative!

To accessorise, why not take a look at glow earrings to go with a glow stick necklace? These are available in different shapes, with the stick pendant also being popular. They are typically clip on and can be bought in various colours. You can buy them in mixed packs, and they start at just 50p each – not bad for such a striking accessory for a night out. If you want to buy a bigger pack they will be cheaper, but you don't have to worry about using them all at once – they have a two-year shelf life, so you can keep some back for the future.

If you want some more jewellery, there are always light-up rings – a great way of accessorising with your glow stick necklaces and earrings. These are typically battery powered, meaning that they can be used over and over again, rather than being usable only once (one of the drawbacks of chemiluminescent products, although the low price usually means this isn't a problem). Depending on how conspicuous you want to be, you can buy a wide range of luminous or glow-in-the-dark accessories, including sunglasses, wigs, pearls, fairy wings, bunny ears and even contact lenses. Not all of these employ the glow stick's chemical reaction – some of them are reactive to UV light, and others use LEDs and batteries. You can even buy glow in the dark make up and body paint if you really want to turn some heads. The possibilities are endless.
