Ahead of the Curve



Bar necklaces with a smile

Remember how we talked about bar necklaces, not long ago? (Memory refresh, here!) We’re still on that topic. But this edition of Raising the Bar is really going to make you smile—because that’s precisely what these pieces are doing. Designed with an upward curve that blurs the line between collar necklace and bar pendant, these crescent-style designs are yet another interesting take on the simple, trending bar. Any one of these would look as lovely solo as they would layered together—with different chain lengths, you could create a sort of nested look (which would be a great way to display them, by the way). It’s too hard to pick a favorite, anyway, so why not pick them all?
