Taylor Swift Graduates the Multiple Necklace Trend at 2023 MTV Video Music Awards

THE #NECKMESS IS GETTING a makeover with more texture and graduated chains, diamond necklaces and a tactile sensibility, as shown on Taylor Swift at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. There are so many aspects to covet about this look: the variety of styles, the way the necklaces are all perfectly graduated and the jewelry’s edgy elegance. Most importantly, it’s a look that anyone can copy at home with a little ingenuity of customizing the chains in the lengths you want to graduate. If you have long hair or can hide it with a white collar shirt, you can safety-pin the different styles in the back of the necklaces so that you can move them around as you see fit. Or, you can add a thinner extender chain in the back of 2-2 ½ inches, which will allow you to wear each necklace in different combinations.

The beauty is in the mix of metals, gemstones or diamonds and the various textures of the links. Swift did this look justice during the awards show by mixing a diamond eternity necklace by Anita Ko with vintage gold and diamond necklaces from Joseph Saidian & Sons. She also wore a vintage onyx, gold and diamond Van Cleef & Arpels  cocktail ring (which apparently lost its central diamond during the awards ceremony), Maria Tash hoop earrings and an Anita Ko ear cuff, which was just enough to complement her neck statement.

We also recommend you playing with different necklaces you already own, adding a new links and maybe a new diamond style into the mix.

The look is chic and relevant, yet all of these necklaces are styles that will endure the test of time.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
