More is Always Better: Multi-Strand Necklaces

necklace opening maybe

Got my diamonds, got my yacht, got a guy I adore
I’m so happy with what I got, I want more
Count your blessings, one, two, three I just hate keeping score
Any number is fine with me as long as it’s more, As long as it’s more
“More” by Stephen Sondheim

The theory being if one strand looks good, then several will look better, more interesting, certainly more pithy, especially if they’re different and combined with other elements. Herein a range of those you might not ordinarily come across.

Alchemy Gold-Plated Swarovski Crystal Necklace by Erickson Beamon

Contemporary and archaic at the same time, this piece might be worn by a goddess or sorceress. Creates a show stopping impression. Wearable art, really. Simply cut clothes in good fabrics please. Green, blue and gunmetal Swarovski crystals. Chain and filigree strands. Push clasp fastening. $645.00

Right: Rosantica Messalina Necklace from France- Could be Etruscan as easily as from Madison Avenue or the rue de Rivoli. A handsome piece for the strong willed and creative among you. Wear with lots of bangles mixing wood, gold-tone and perhaps bone. Long earrings. Eye makeup. Better with definite stark or neutral colors. Gold tone brass necklace with multiple strands of small, square, textured plaques. Magnetic clasp fastening. $596.00
