12 Las Vegas Jewelry Trends, No. 5, Simply Charming: Necklace Charms Are the New Black

New York City, May 14, 2019. Layering remains jewelry’s favorite look, fueled by myriad station chains, new chain link styles, and personalized #neckmess ensembles everywhere. A search of that hashtag on Instagram turns up countless custom layered scenarios like beaded numbers with dangling dog tags to mixes of skinny and hefty link styles clutching all manner of pendants (think shells, monograms, animal motifs, and more) with private meanings to wearers. Pearl strands with enhancers, too, have a place in this pretty pattern of wear, as do lockets and talismans of every type. The big takeaway? Heaps of mismatched and personalized pendants with oversize bales for ease of switching chains are the charms for your neck that help tell your story without saying a word.
