Move over statement necklaces, there’s a new type of neck adornment around that’s been making serious street style waves. Right now, it’s all about the pendant necklace, whether you have just one or layer together three or four, it allows you to show maximum bronzed summer skin. Not to mention, pendant necklaces given or received as gifts (to yourself or others) tend to take on a personal meaning that makes them every bit the conversation starter your statement piece is, perhaps more so. Keep your chunky pieces in your jewelry box for special occasions and take a gander at these lovelies you’ll adopt into your daily arsenal.
