Whether your personal jewelry style is “Front Row” or Boho, consider buying a pendant necklace. Pendants are popular in all different lengths, and can be worn singly, as a focal point, or layered for a “collection look.” Longer styles add balance to fall’s boots and textured sweaters; they’ll look just as chic with spring’s cropped tops and wide pants. With pendants, almost anything goes: from personalized alphabet letters to precious gemstones, vintage charms to “found pieces,” fringe, tassels and antique chains.

Here’s to pendant power…hang one (or more) on and be dazzling!
