Taking requests: Long, dangly necklaces

12

This query comes from my podcast partner Tally, and when she says “long dangly necklaces,” I am taking her to mean chains with some sort of charm or stone hanging from them. I think these lips are cute and even a little sexy.

A cool horn pendant is a statement-y item, and this one is small enough not to feel too statement-y.

The combination of freshwater pearl and garnet here is quite winning.

A wee circle clustered with diamonds—so low-key luxe.

I love a coin necklace, and this one has an image of Aphrodite on it, which is cool.

The combination of pine wood with aquamarine here is both unexpected and really chic.

A sword like this is so tough girl—but in a quiet way.

And I’m crazy for this cherry pendant: so cheery and fun.

A bold crescent moon  that’s appealingly retroish too. And very well-priced.

I want a monstera plant, but they’re toxic to dogs, so I might have to content myself with this cute monstera leaf pendant.

This cast-in-gold shell is very of-the-moment, and has a beachy feel that always feels quite welcome to me this time of year.

A scarab is an ancient Egyptian symbol of immortality, transformation, and protection, and this outlined version is really nicely graphic.

This dented heart by James Colarusso is something I’ve had my eye on for years—the dent gives the heart a nice little bit of edge (N.B.: chain sold separately)

    First of all, I am sooooo happy there’s going to be a meet-up in L.A. and at the same time I’m super jealous to the point that I actually looked on-line last night at Southwest flights to L.A. so I could meet all y’all! Second, I’ve never been a long dangly necklace person (because I’m short?). I have one to my name that it a bit hippy dippy and I love it. But, these are tempting me in all the right ways. I love that circle with the cluster of diamonds and the cast shell. Really wonderful selection.

    I covet the look of these on other ladies, but I’ve not managed to figure out how to make it work for myself. If anyone knows how to properly wear these when one possesses a boobshelf, please kindly clue me in.

    The shell necklace doesn’t look long and dangly on the model, and it very much speaks to my island upbringing. I think I’ll snag it.

      Is that why they don’t work for me? Boob shelf, indeed…

    That James Colarusso one is to die for! I love the look: Andrea is queen of the necklace conglomerate. But mine always tangle if I wear them in a grouping. What can be done about that?

      In my experience, nothing can be done but frequent detangling, or living with the tangles.

    The natural stones and gems would have me touching them all day long. There is something therapeutic about these, beyond looking good.

    I love these, thanks Kim! The little groupings of stones is my fave. Also agree about the tangling– it’s just part of the look in a way.

    Re: monstera – Ikea has great fake stems – very believably real – for like $5 each. That may help scratch that itch!

    I love long, dangly necklaces. LOVE. Thank you, Kim! Marisa Mason also has a wonderful collection of gold, silver, and leather necklaces that veer a little 70s Laurel Canyon. I have a couple of hers and often get nice comments. https://marisamason.com/

    Feeling very sunny & tropical with the cast shell and monstera leaf necklaces. In regards to the monstera being poisonous to dogs, I had a few pothos plants quite a few years ago which my two cats took great pleasure in digging in the pots, tangling themselves in the vines even though the plants were pretty much out of reach. I finally gave the plants away when I found out they were poisonous to cats.

    I just finished “Succession” season 2, and am enthralled by the outfits and jewelry worn by the actress who plays Siobhan Roy. Could you possibly do a post on her outfits, necklaces and all?
