From Pendants to #NeckMess, These Necklace Styles Are Turning Heads

Today’s necklace style is all about versatility.

mm

Published

on

THE RULES OF necklace layering have been rewritten in the past few years, and the result is gloriously maximal: collectors are curating luscious necklace arrays in a celebration of styling that is its own eye-catching art form. The key is marketing individual pieces that can shine solo when the trend passes or if your shopper is feeling low-key, but that also lend themselves to lovely layering.

Evocateur jewelry in 22K gold leaf and enamel worn by model Lauren Graves includes Delia teardrop earrings, $168; Starfish necklace, $178; Lizzie three-strand necklace, $218; Leopard corset cuff, $378; Constellation cuff, $328; all handmade in the USA. Call (203) 956-0705 or visit evocateurstyle.com for more information. PHOTOGRAPHER: Cam Camerena. AGENCY: EMG Models.

Perfect Pendants

Pendant necklaces are perfection when it comes to versatility: you can limit length by changing chains or switch up style by combining charms. Neckmess newbies might be shy about having too many bobbling bits bouncing around together on their chains, but the informality of this insouciance is all that is au courant.

While pendant necklaces are weighted straight down, these more balanced beauties are adept at the art of laying lightly along the line of a collarbone, seamlessly and sinuously integrating themselves into the body’s curves.

Here Are 4 Jewelry Trends You Must Not Miss at the Vegas Shows

There’s a shape, a color, a silhouette and a substance.

Published

on

WHETHER OR NOT visions of poker chips dance in your head, the jewelry industry heads to Vegas each summer for a reason: to hunt down the best, most desirable new products and bring them home so they can sell like hotcakes. The veritable oodles of Vegas options can be overwhelming, so we’re here to whisper in your ear with a few insider tips. When it comes to new jewels, look towards light and lovely blue gemstones, the bold strength of collar necklaces, the sweet nostalgia of heart shapes, and vivid, versatile enamel.

On-trend jewelry by Shy Creation includes Eden diamond drop earrings, $2,000; Kate lapis lazuli and diamond studs, $360; Kate sapphire and diamond ring, $330; Kate sapphire bezel ring, $330; Kate sapphire and diamond eye ring, $1,200; Kate lapis lazuli and diamond shaker necklace, $580; Kate sapphire and diamond eye pendant, $490; and Kate lapis lazuli, turquoise and diamond heart pendant, $730. Visit shycreation.com or call (213) 623-8900. Model: Josie Renault. Photographer: Lauren Miller. Agency: Brandt

Collar Cotillion

Longer than a choker but more substantial than a pendant, the collar necklace is a standout statement, a confident proclamation of stellar style. A collar necklace takes up more space on the body than a standard chain, just like a bold jewelry lover isn’t afraid to take up space in the world.
