A luxe layer or stand-alone statement
Have I got a good one for you today. Martha Seely‘s creation from her new Shooting Stars collection takes the bar necklace, well, over the moon. The lacy open lines curve and swirl in a galaxy of rose gold, nestled with glimmering diamonds that alternate in size and are both prong- and bezel-set. The design’s swooping silhouette makes it perfect for layering—I’d put this at the very top of a tier—but its eye-catching design, complete with textured metal detail, makes it ideal for solo wear. Seely has made this available in a variety of combinations to please any taste or price point. Get it in 14k rose, white, or yellow gold, in sterling silver, and with diamonds or cubic zirconia. It’s just in time for Mother’s Day, graduation time, or my 30th birthday (who said that??). But in all seriousness, this is a true feel-good look. After all, how can you not smile at a piece that smiles back?
