Versatile Necklaces – Easy Ways to Change Your Look
Want to get the most out of your jewelry? Versatile jewelry provides an expansion of style options without costing too much or taking up too much space. They make the perfect travel accessories and allow you to put your own personal touch on the look. Here are some ideas for how to get multiple looks from a single necklace:
Adjustable chains open up a variety of sizing choices, from 24" to choker, using a sliding adjuster to tailor the length. And they can be paired with different pendants or a variety of charms. Use multiple chains to create a variety of layered styles. From sterling silver, to gold over silver, to 14kt white or yellow gold, there is a chain to meet your individualized taste and budget.
Endless necklaces are another versatile style of jewelry, often strung all the way around with pearls or beads. They are very long in length and have no clasped ending, giving them their name "endless." Endless necklaces can be wrapped around several ways to create different layered looks and even tied to create a knotted centerpiece. And the longer the necklace, the more possibilities!
Long chains are classic multi-purpose necklaces, opening up possibilities for layering and pairing with pendants. But they also make wonderful fashion belts. Simply slip the chain through your belt loops and create an instant statement. To really make something unique, try attaching the chains to your belt loops using hoop earrings and allow them to drape across in a stylish cascade.
You can shorten the length of a long necklace with a necklace shortener. Simply fold the necklace and attach the shortener to the looped ends. If you'd like, try twisting the strands to make a torsade. Clasp it together and voila! You can even use the shortener to combine more than one necklace into a single design.
Tassel necklaces require some creative, out-of-the-box thinking. They can be worn traditionally, tied in the front, or as a unique choker that features the tassel in the back. Wrap the necklace around your wrist to create a chic multi-strand bracelet or around your waist to make a stylish belt. Experiment with the placement of the tassel and the options are endless!
Because of their lightweight knit pattern, mesh necklaces are perfect for creating a chunky look that won't weigh you down. But did you ever think about using them as a hair accessory? Some short mesh necklaces have a bit a stretch and can be pulled around the head as a chic headband.
Instead of having two omegas to suit your different color needs, try a reversible Omega for two shades in one. With silver on one side, and gold on the other, this necklace will be sure to match with any outfit and any pendant you own. It's a classic...re-imagined!
Pin Pendant Necklaces
A popular design from the past, pin pendant necklaces provide a wealth of fashion opportunities. You can, of course, wear the necklace as it comes, or you could switch out the pendant for another. Try the pendant on other chains and strands and experiment with different lengths. But best of all, the pendant features a pin on the back and a concealable bale, allowing it to be worn as a brooch to spruce up that blouse, jacket, or handbag.
Flexible Four-In-One Necklace
Designed with versatility in mind, our four-in-one necklaces have a flexible silicone core which allows it to be twisted and formed into different styles. Wear it as an Omega or coil the ends to sport an elegant Y-necklace. Curl it around the neck to create a posh choker or around the wrist to shape a fun wrap bracelet. You'll love seeing the necklace transform before your eyes.
Waterfall Lariat Necklace
Our waterfall lariat necklace is one of a kind. With multiple layered strands, it forms a glittering cascade along the neckline, catching the light just right. And to make it even more fabulous, it has a fun little secret – twist the necklace from the ends and a beautiful lariat style emerges.
By wearing a multitude of necklaces with varying textures, colors, or lengths, you can bring new life to old, tired styles. You can also marry two necklaces together by twisting them together into a braid-look. To create something totally new, twist, braid, or fold necklaces together and attach them at ends using a necklace shortener.
