Perhaps the most transformative item in your jewelry box (and the one with the widest range of styles), is the statement necklace. It can cast everything from a plain cotton tee shirt to the little black dress in a whole new light. Look for one that reminds you of a special time in your life — because you’re guaranteed to end up talking about it when it catches someone’s eye.
Coco Chanel said a woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls. Classic and timeless, a strand of pearls will never go out of style. Whether small or large in diameter, simple or piled on in layers, a simple pearl necklace might be the most versatile necklace you will own. Its also a wonderful piece to invest in and pass along as an heirloom to future generations.
It seems quiet, but is really so elegant: A thread-like, whisper-thin chain that highlights both skin and necklines with a hint of sparkle. A simple chain necklace is the kind of effortless, everyday favorite that elevates any outfit. It is also often one of the most personal pieces in a woman's jewelry wardrobe, holding a special locket, birthstone or initial.
The choker necklace is a style that is often considered trendy but is really a classic because of the variety of necklines it complements. Chokers can either be thin and dainty or bold and loud. Since, they sit so high up on the neck, it is easy to layer other necklaces with them. Also, their high placement makes them a suitable match for any style top.
We're all about double-duty jewelry, and what is more versatile than a necklace that can be worn multiple ways? A long necklace can be worn long or doubled around your neck to create a whole new look. Perfect for when you want on-the-go glam. These are the perfect piece to mix and match to master the mixed metal trend.
And remember...rules are meant to be broken! Whether your style is go big or go home, or minimalist and modern, don't be afraid to experiment and always let your individual style shine through.
