It's gorgeous! I would wear it with everything! But especially to work. I wear lots of black and grey, with splashes of color, and this would look especially awesome with my black pants and brand new white tuxedo-style shirt. And my black blouse. And my blue blouse. And, like I said, everything!

mbahawk said...

I would double it and wear it as a choker. Silver cubes as an updated version of pearls.

looks great paired with a jewel-neck black sweater

childfreelife said...

I would wear this necklace with a violet shift dress with rose-pink tights and shiny patent black high heel shoes. I think that having my hair up in a french roll would make the ensemble even more elegant.

Jo said...

A simple but elegant accessory. I, like several others I am a jeans/tshirt kind of person. Normally I wear a white t-shirt however this necklace screams being showcased on a dark background.

So faded lighter blue jeans, black t-shirt, black oxford shoes and this gorgeous necklace! Add a boyfriend blazer and you are good to go.

Now, that is just me being my casual self, but this necklace could be dressed up in all kinds of ways and like I mentioned before - it needs a dark back drop. A LBD and this necklace - how awesome would that be?!

I think it would look amazing paired with a simple black tee/tank under my green cashmere cardigan, with skinny jeans. Just the thing to add flair to a casual outfit.

The brushed nickel finish is such a classic. I have a dress with purple and lilac swirls that this would go perfectly with... it has a cowl neck, so the length of this necklace would be just right.

You could wear that necklace with everything. But I specifically like the idea of wearing it with an all black minimalistic outfit - black t-shirt, black short skirt, and boots. Futuristic and very cool.

I think I would go super basic with this necklace, so that it really stood out. Maybe a white T, with a black cardi, and jeans.
