What is a Lariat Necklace?

You have a bunch of chokers, plenty of pendants and lots of layered styles. Looking for a new type of necklace to add to your collection? Meet the lariat necklace. A lariat necklace is a long, linear style necklace that usually has a decorative drop whether it is a tassel or bar or a string of beads. Sometimes it is referred to as a Y necklace since it resembles that shape. The lariat necklace is definitely a cool style to add to your jewelry rotation. Its elongated shape is very flattering and makes it perfect for pairing with a lot of different necklines. We love the look of a lariat and there are a bunch of brook & york styles that are easy to wear and will instantly change up your everyday look.

Monograms and custom pieces are brook & york’s best-selling styles. Personalized jewelry is so popular for so many reasons. First of all, they make the best gifts. When something is personalized, it shows you went the extra mile and really gave someone special something that is truly unique and creative. In terms of buying for oneself, who doesn’t love putting their name on things? Any pendant, bracelet and of course, lariat looks better when it has one’s own name or initials. Our Anna Lariat Necklace is the perfect mix of a cool style with a classic monogram. Its delicate cable chain has a cool metal accent, and is finished with a linear drop and circular pendant that looks amazing with an initial or monogram. We love the sleek style of this lariat and the way it takes a classic personalized piece and makes it thoroughly modern.

Another one of our favorite lariat necklaces is the Eloise. The Eloise Lariat Necklace is sleek, easy to wear and so fun.

It can just be thrown on and immediately gives even the most basic outfit a fashionable update. Its elongated shape even helps create lean lines on whatever you are wearing.
