Neck in Neck: Six Staple Styles Necklaces for a Timeless Jewelry Wardrobe


There are two types of jewelry which brighten you face –they are earrings and necklaces. In our last blog we discussed the essential earrings which every woman should have in her jewelry rotation. There are also six styles of necklaces that act as staples which are timeless when worn alone and —and can be layered for a more timely look. Once you have these six staples in your jewelry rotation you can build upon them and continue to add different styles or more of the same that you feel flatter you the most.

Whether you are partial to diamonds, yellow gold, mixed metals, motif driven styles or colored gemstones –they are all included in these different styles we have chosen to represent the key looks you will want to invest in as we head into the new year.

During current times when we are still having Zoom meetings and many of us WFH, necklaces like earring will dress up your top half which is what your colleagues and clients are seeing. They also make for great gifts for the holidays.

Here are the six styles we recommend you own in some incarnation that suits your personal style and tastes.

Lariat Necklaces can be pared down and laid back or elegant and sexy. They can be worn with the connecting bar high or lower to dip down to the décolletage or the two sides can be worn asymmetrically for a nonchalant look.

Y Necklaces can also be easygoing or more dramatic. These styles tend to be on the more glamorous side with vertical diamond dipping down the neck, perfect for a V-neck, white shirt, or a more dressy strapless evening gown or the Y can be worn turned around with a cocktail number or gown with a low cut back.

Station Necklaces are perfect for women who like longer styles that have motif or textured stations. These are necklaces that can be worn over sweaters in winter or T-shirts in summer—the longer styles can be wrapped around two or three times. They can also be layered with other necklaces in an elegant graduated look.
