Found: Long Pendant Necklaces You'll Wear Forever

The perfect finishing touch.

Design by Susanna Hayward

Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

I’m a "more is more" kind of gal when it comes to accessories, and I don’t mess around when it comes to stacking. I feel naked without at least four layered necklaces, ranging from chokers and chains to long pendants. For me, a self-proclaimed necklace expert, the long pendant is crucial—it serves as the finishing touch for any perfect stack. The formula is easy: choker, chain, short pendant, and long pendant. Voilà!

Still, if you're someone who doesn’t want to wear 10 pounds' worth of necklaces every day, that’s okay, too! One sleek long pendant goes a long way and can instantly elevate any look. Whether you're looking to stack it up or keep it simple, a long pendant necklace will be one of the most versatile pieces in your jewelry box.
