When I had a fine jewelry line, I loved nothing more than piling on necklaces–really long ones laden with charms, chokers with single pendants, delicate chains–all of them, all at once. (I still do.) It is easiest to pull off when the weather is warm and you can wear a shirt with a deeper v, or a decolleté-baring dress. You can also do this at any price point. The best for less are the gold medallion styles by Alighieri, which frankly look real. Céline has long chain pendant styles. Want to go silver? You could mix this Sophie Buhai egg with some have-forever Hérmes versions. My ultimates include Foundrae charms and a Sidney Garber snake necklace with a couple of simpler chains. There are so many ways to layer up, which will you choose?
