A lot is happening at home at during 2020. Your homes are the new setting for your office, your kids’ school, your book club meetings, exercise classes, and even virtual happy hours with the girls. You’ve likely undergone serious lifestyle changes this year, and your work-life and family-life are probably blending more than ever before. You’re still busy, but it’s a different pace, and expectations have shifted on all fronts.
Well, one thing is for certain; you don’t have to sacrifice style. We’re here to provide your newest life hack by simplifying and streamlining your jewelry stable. Jewelry that can work just as well for a virtual yoga session as it does an online seminar is not only practical, but it can also help trim time between activities and eliminate any stress that goes along with that transition. Luckily, adapting to the times never looked so good.
Simple, everyday necklaces don’t have to sacrifice quality either. A necklace that you don’t want to take off will only achieve your love if it is made to last. This means top quality materials, excellent construction, and durability, even for the most delicate options. Lux Bond & Green is discerning with our designer selection and we believe that quality is synonymous with luxury. Check out some of our favorite simple necklace styles and designers. We think you’ll adore them too.
Simple Gold Chain Necklaces
Necklaces that you truly don’t have to take off might be so subtle you start to forget you’re wearing them! When shopping for a gold chain, paring down options allows you to consider often overlooked details, like the color differences between gold karats, the varying shapes of gold chain links, and the type of clasp. This 22” Temple St. Clair18k yellow gold chain is comprised of extra small oval links, which offer slightly more space between loops than other chain styles. This 24k yellow gold cable chain, at 16-18” with a hook clasp, offers a brilliantly vivid warm-gold tone as compared with other yellow golds in 18k or 14k. It can be relaxing to focus on comparing just fundamental basics to arrive at the perfect gold chain for you.
Like a simple gold chain with intrigue along its length, station necklaces pinpoint attention with diamonds or gemstones, and sometimes both! A perfect example is the Classica diamond necklace from Roberto Coin in 18k rose gold, which has five round diamonds dispersed in stations along the 17” chain.
Or, for instance, some designers like Mikimoto are inspired to mix it up. See the Akoya pearl and diamond station necklace, which alternates diamonds between beautiful pearls strung through the middle, on an 18k white gold chain. Dangling stations are another station necklace variety, and this graduated disc pendant necklace in 14k gold with pave diamond and gold discs from Delicato might be just what you’re seeking for some everyday glam.
Longer Gold Chain Necklaces
We would be remiss not to mention a few necklaces with a longer silhouette. This two-strand 18k gold necklace includes tiny delicate chains doubled up and asymmetrically connecting shiny, oversized gold links. At 31”, this fun necklace is slightly fancy but mostly fun. Plus, who’s to say you can’t dress up your jewelry even if you’re dressed down? Add the 34” Princess Flower necklace from Roberto Coin, which features differing sizes of open silhouette flowers in 18k yellow gold—one of them filled with pave diamonds. The length even allows for doubling-up!
Modern Everyday Pendant Necklaces
Two of our favorite everyday-worthy jewelry designers, are Delicato and Moderno. Both offer a put-together and clean look while offering on-trend pendant shapes. For instance, from Moderno, shapes like this infinity pendant in 14k yellow gold, or this star pendant in 14k yellow gold are perfect for everyday wear. Delicato excels at pairing neat lines with brilliant diamonds. This 16” diamond pave bar necklace in 18k white gold is dainty yet attention-catching, while the feminine pave diamond flower pendant in 14k yellow gold on an 18” chain adds a dash of sparkle.
Lovely Lariat Necklaces
Distinctly different from the pendant necklace, a lariat style necklace adds subtle flair. Typically, a lariat necklace forms a “Y” shape when worn, showcasing a longer dangle in front. This lariat diamond necklace in 18k yellow gold features a simple chain, elevated with a central diamond from which another diamond drops downward. The Lunaria necklace from Marco Bicego is comprised of small links of 18k yellow gold, with one white gold link at the center of the lariat, which is paved in diamonds. Finally, from one of our favorite all-female jewelry design teams, Gumuchian, you’ll find the Honeybee B Collection Y Necklace in 18k yellow gold, with two round diamonds encased in 18k yellow gold honeycomb shapes. To boot, the tiny honeybee charm at the clasp is just too cute.
Chic and elegant everyday necklaces will ensure that you stay fashionable while you multi-task, whether at home or in the office. Take to heart the tried-and-true words of wisdom from Coco Chanel, “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” The advice works for indoor appearances, too. Heading out to the grocery store or piling on the couch with the fam for a Zoom call with Grandma, every day can be a success story in simple, fine jewelry elegance.
