I love jewelry that makes a statement. And, oversized necklaces are some of my top picks. This spring, top designers like Givenchy have been showcasing some amazingly beautiful options. And, the hottest necklace length by far? The collar.
According to Harper’s BAZAAR, “Hitting somewhere below a choker necklace and above the décolletage, the collar bone necklace demands attention, and offers face-framing flattery all at once.”
However, these are not the “Material Girl” collars you may remember from back in the 1990s! This spring, the look is fresh, whether you lean toward a modern, industrial look, a rocker chic vibe, or a more romantic feel.
For me, the ultimate spring necklace is the right-on-trend, natural stone collar by NOVICA, pictured. This piece is handcrafted entirely of beautiful stones like lapis lazuli and aventurine into a breathtaking work of art. The detail is astounding!
I especially love that while the necklace is colorful, it is not gaudy like necklaces with fake glass “gems” or worse, plastic variations! The high quality of workmanship and materials is evident in just a glance.
And, the price can’t be beat. While the List Price is $73.95, Amazon Prime members can score this beauty for just $35.99, which even includes Free Shipping.
But, maybe the best part is that when you purchase this necklace, you are also helping talented artisan designers from around the world make a better life for themselves and their families.
NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, works together with designers from every corner of the globe to produce stunning, keepsake treasures. These artisans, many of whom live in rural communities, previously did not have the means to sell their work on the international market. Now, NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale.
So, not only are NOVICA pieces, like this necklace, beautiful, they are actually making a real difference in the world!
