Necklaces are jewelry’s most elegant embrace.

NECKLACES ARE TRULY THE EASIEST FORM OF JEWELRY: They don’t require sizing, piercing or careful placement and they never get in the way of your hands. A necklace can be anything you want it to be, from a subtle pendant tucked beneath your sweater to a daring, dangling declaration dripping in diamonds.

Playful Pioneers

These necklaces know the rules, they just don’t care. These curving collars and far-flung strands still seek to decorate the wearer’s décolletage, but with loose ends and unconstrained enthusiasm that will appeal to the shopper whose heart harbors a little extra wildness.

OVER THE PAST few years, we have seen almost every style of earring imaginable on A-list actresses. From large hoops to small chandeliers, from shoulder dusters to streamlined linear silhouettes, from cuffs to climbers, an earring renaissance is in the offing. At the Emmy Awards, earrings that sit close to the ear were revealed to be the newest style to watch. They can range from mid-20th-century-inspired earrings that rest on the lobe with a sprinkle of diamonds or gemstones, to current and creative versions of huggies that are anything but classic and seem to be getting a modern makeover as the earring revival continues.
