JCK 5: Go Big or Go Home



In other words, don’t hold back. Spring’s silky, flowing garments are ideal backdrops for the big, bold pendant necklaces shaping up in studios around the world. A wide medallion of metal or stone (or both) stationed against the torso can efficiently anchor a billowing silhouette, or serve as the focal point for a smart-­looking shift dress. If an outfit needs a little oomph, go big, indeed…with one of these substantial accessories.
