Never underestimate the power of a signature jewelry piece. Whether it be the understated studs you wear every day or a vintage bracelet you picked up after hours of searching, it’s part of what makes your look unique. And this spring, one of the freshest ways to convey a little personality is with a long statement necklace, on its own or layered.
Have a streamlined style? Stick to a single long chain with an eye-catching pendant–like a ’70s-inspired piece from House of Harlow–and let it speak for itself. Want to go bold? Layer a long necklace–like this beaded version by Kenneth Jay Lane or a rosary by Pamela Love–with necklaces that are significant to you, such as a gift or something you found on your travels. Top it off with a piece with a little extra meaning: Falling Whistles necklaces, which help war-affected children in the Congo, and bluma project necklaces, which provide sustainable incomes to artisans in Rwanda and Ghana, lend a personal, one-of-a-kind touch to your look.
