Gold, January–February 2018: Charm Necklaces for the Win



Delphine Leymarie open link gold chainCAN’T-MISS COLLECTION

A Call to Charms

Charm bracelets will always have a place in collectors’ hearts (and jewelry boxes), but don’t overlook the more wearable—and, frankly, more easily changeable—charm necklace. At a recent press preview, we were completely, well, charmed by Delphine Leymarie’s very collectible and affordable ($275–$795 -retail) gold, gemstone, and enamel danglers. The 10 pieces—in her signature recycled 18k gold—slide easily onto a gold or oxidized silver clicker ring, which in turn latches onto one of Leymarie’s beaded or metal chains. (You can even clasp them onto an ear wire or hoop earring; see the designer’s cool Instagram demos at @delphinejewelry.) Leymarie is planning diamond updates for a couple of charms, plus “a larger moon, cactuses, a heartbeat, and more gem clusters,” she says. “And a few others to surprise you with!” —Melissa Rose Bernardo
