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.
