I love the look of layered necklaces, especially as my style has skewed increasingly tomboyish: they always add a nice touch of femininity to the proceedings. This pearl & black diamond number is really understated and elegant.
Were I in a position to splurge right now—and I am decidedly not, as I’m about to move to a new place, which always ends up costing a fortune—I’d go for this knockout diamond cluster necklace.
I like the cheeky French-ness of this one.
A tiny ruby on an ultra-thin chain would be an excellent addition to any necklace menagerie.
This looks like it’s Jill Platner and expensive, but it’s Madewell and it’s not.
I do love a coin pendant, and this one is so authentically ancient-looking.
For a while now, I’ve wanted a gothic initial necklace, and this one is so good.
A thick toggle chain makes a mighty statement.
A tiny diamond nestles so gracefully in this crescent.
I just love the slightly unexpected starbust here.
And the graphic stars on this one are appealing.
Why not a 14k gold-and-diamond initial necklace for somebody special on your list?
Opals are always so beautiful, and I like the simple setting here.
Black and white diamonds are an unbeatable combination, no?
Everyone should have at least one evil eye in her jewelry box, and this one is so good.
And finally: the pop of turquoise here adds a touch of brightness to the party.
