Everyday Necklaces

A few months ago, I wrote a post called “Statement Necklaces Confuse Me,” and frankly, they still do. Fortunately for me, I’ve shaken off my tendency to be attracted to them and have been switching around necklaces—one of my accessories of choice—to wear everyday.

Here are some of my favorites:

Sofie Lunøe — This is a random necklace I found at the ICA in Boston. Sofie Lunøe is a Danish goldsmith and I can’t, for the life of me, figure out how to get a hold of her stuff online. I was hooked on the stunning geometrical shape at play here that it didn’t even matter that I rarely wear silver jewelry. (I do now.)

Double Arrow Necklace by BRVTVS (Of a Kind) — Made in just a batch of 50, this necklace by BRVTVS in collaboration with Of a Kind is still a firm favorite. The pair of open ‘v’s juts out of the circle and sits on top of your collarbones, which adds a lovely effect.

Sapphire Lucky 3 Necklace by AILI (Of a Kind) — This is definitely the most expensive piece of jewelry I own—a 10-karat gold necklace with three tiny (1 mm) blue sapphires—but I had to have it as sapphire is my birthstone, and I had been wanting to get a “real” piece for myself for a while. As always, I waited for a sale—and the subtle prettiness this adds to my life is way worth it.

Andromeda Necklace by Nettie Kent (Of a Kind) — I love this unusual necklace! Inspired by shark’s teeth and Greek mythology, Nettie Kent made a strong piece that I still love wearing over and over.

Gold Bar — a simple necklace that I got from Etsy, if I feel like taking the quite plain route when it comes to neck accessories.

Slaughterhouse-five Necklace by Out of Print — I saw this at the NYPL and I had to have it. Technically, I really wanted the one from “The Bell Jar” (it said, i am i am i am) but I hadn’t read that yet. I love this one, though. So it goes.

Degas’ “La Petit Danseuse” — I acquired this from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, though it’s pretty easy to find online. It’s a pendant of Edgar Degas’ work, La Petit Danseuse, which is beautiful and was also kind of sketchy? In any case, I love wearing this, especially with shirts that have delicate collars.

A DINOSAUR — Found in Japan, in a store along Dotonbori street. It’s just a dinosaur!

So! These are mainly the necklaces I wear and I have the first four in heavy rotation. What’s your necklace life like?

  1. Ahh the “so it goes” necklace is perfect!! I’ve wanted to get a wrist tattoo of that line forever…this might be a nice compromise for the time being 🙂

  2. I can really see your aesthetics from this collection 😉 My everyday necklace is the Tiffany interlocking circles one that my husband (then boyfriend) got me several years ago for my birthday. I’m boring like that, but most of the time that’s what I wear. I’m not BIG on statement necklaces either, but I love the crystal collar necklace I got from Kristin Perry recently. That one is easy enough to pair 🙂

    • That’s so nice of you to say. 😀 I think statement pieces are easy enough to wear if they’re making the statement you want to make! Hehe. 🙂

  3. Sapphire Lucky 3 Necklace is so gorgeous, and your stone too! 🙂

    I really like these, the ‘so it goes’ the most I think – statement necklaces are just not for me, I always buy them and then never wear them, but these are wearable and perfect.

    Beautiful pieces all of them, especially love the Andromeda shark tooth, very well thought out! I’m currently in a all-too-loud statement necklace phase, but a loved simple everyday piece or a small stack of them is like comfort food, never get tired of them 🙂
