Sometimes a new jewelry style is so universally lauded that it becomes an instant classic. A great example is the key necklace, and key jewelry in general.
I first saw Tiffany & Co.’s groundbreaking key jewelry about 10 years ago. The company’s huge double page spread in Harper’s BAZAAR magazine couldn’t fail to catch my eye. Nor could the elegance of the various designs. (Although the heart-pounding, diamond encrusted, platinum Tiffany Keys Petals key pendant was my top pick, the $8,500 price tag was just a teeny bit of a sticking point.)
Luckily, designers everywhere immediately jumped on the bandwagon, offering key necklaces and key jewelry in a huge variety of styles and price points. As with other “new classics,” such as the David Yurman cable bracelet and the three-stone diamond ring, they never stopped creating updated versions!
One of my brand new faves is the Prjewel Sterling Silver Key Necklace. Beautifully crafted in .925 sterling silver, this key necklace will never tarnish, fade, or oxidize.
The gorgeous key pendant has a wonderfully intricate design with lovely “S” curves that join together to form a heart around a central stone. The entire piece is simply covered in high quality, glittering CZ stones. So, while they are not diamonds, they sure offer plenty of sparkle!
The pendant dangles from a sterling silver cable chain. And, the delicate design perfectly complements the oh-so-feminine key. The chain is 16” long, but also has a 2” extender, making this a wonderfully adaptable necklace, no matter what style neckline you choose. Retail: $12.99
In addition to the key necklace, Prjewel offers a huge range of gorgeous, affordable fine jewelry. A few of my top choices include the Sterling Silver Simple Circle Drop Stud Earrings, Sterling Silver Stackable Bead Ring, and Sterling Silver and Fresh Water Pearl Studs.
