The Only Necklaces You'll Ever Need

Curating a jewelry wardrobe is similar to your clothing wardrobe. You have your everyday, tried and true basics like your skinny jeans, white tees and leather jackets and then you have your fun, special, unique pieces like your sequin blazer, leather pants, and hot pink mini dress. We feel the same way about necklaces and want to help you create the ultimate jewelry wardrobe with the only necklaces you’ll ever need.

Pendant necklaces are definitely your go-to styles. This is the white tee and blue jeans of necklaces. At brook & york, we have an extensive collection of pendant necklaces for every taste and style. A pendant necklace is perfect to wear everyday, no matter where you are going. Made for work, weekend and even for nights out, this versatile style is a can’t miss. Our Halsey Initial Pendant is one of our best-selling pendant necklaces. The cut out disc pendant features one initial for a totally modern look. It looks great worn alone or layered with other styles. We love its simple chain and effortless look. Heart jewelry is also totally timeless and wearable. Our Isabel Heart Pendant is another amazing option. We love the bigger shape of the heart pendant because it gives it an edgier vibe rather than being sweet.  It also looks great monogrammed or kept solid. This is another style that can be worn 7 days a week either alone or layered. If you like things with a bit of color, the Grace Birthstone Toggle Necklace is a stylish option. We love a toggle closure especially when it is accented with a disc pendant adorned with a birthstone. This is a nice way to sport a personalized necklace without a monogram or initials. Pendant necklaces are definitely a staple that you will pull out regularly to deck your neck.

Chokers are another type of necklace that need to be featured in any necklace wardrobe. They are sophisticated, sexy and are completely on trend. They also look amazing paired with other necklaces like pendants and lariats. We have a huge array of choker styles for every taste. Our Colette Choker is a great place to start. It is a classic medium size chain link so its wearable but still has a bit of edge. We like this style for a casual, weekend look with a cropped sweater and high waisted jean or even your favorite matching sweatshirt and sweatpant look. It is a no-brainer, add to cart style. For something a bit dressier, we love the Brynn Choker. The floral-inspired design instantly makes it romantic and perfect for a night out. We would love it paired with a little black dress and red lip. It would also be amazing layered with a more simple, slimmer choker. Our Mae Choker is that slim, understated, never take off choker necklace. It can literally be worn with any other necklaces and it will also look amazing. It looks dainty on the neck and will never overpower anything else you have on. Chokers have been on everyone’s radar for a while and it looks like they are not going anywhere. Now is the time to stock up.

We definitely are fans of the personalized necklace, and that is why the name necklace ranks high on our list of must haves. There are so many types of name necklaces that stopping at one might be impossible. The Nella Mini Nameplate is one of our go-to styles. It is delicate, versatile and can be worn every day of the week. Since it is pretty understated, it is also perfect for layering with other styles. The Name Bar Necklace is another stylish choice. The bar style feels fresh and modern and has a chic presence. We love the modern or script font and all the metal options to choose from. Since the choker necklace is also having a moment, our Sofia Spaced Name Choker is another great option. We love the look of a choker but with delicate letter charms that give the style great movement. This is a fun piece that is completely unique and destined to get plenty of compliments. 

Lariat necklaces qualify as fun pieces and make a great addition to any jewelry wardrobe. Since they are long, sleek and effortless, the lariat really goes with everything. It can be added to a layered look, or simply thrown on with everything from a sweater dress to a bikini to put the exclamation point on any outfit. We’re big fans of the Eloise Lariat. It is super sleek and modern and has a linear bar pendant. Its satellite station change adds texture and a bit more twinkle which is definitely a good thing. Lariats are great when you just need that extra something when you are accessorizing.

Creating a jewelry wardrobe, especially a curated necklace collection is easy with just a few, simple but statement making pieces you will reach for again and again.
