The Gold Collar Necklace–The Next Must Have Item?

By Posted on 1 min read 4179 views

Collar necklaces have always been a statement maker, not for meek or timid to be sure. And much like apparel, there are distinct trends in jewelry. A number of years ago it was all about over-sized, geometric, can’t be missed necklaces. This gave way to a trend that was the polar opposite: layers of delicate gold chain necklaces circa Carrie Bradshaw of early 2000s.

The last few seasons this trend has given way to the larger than life, in your face, chunky gold necklacethe bigger the better.  And this bigger than better trend is still going strong and it is not exclusive to what is hanging from your neck. Chandelier earrings were also a hot commodity. Like this stand-alone earring from Valentino.

But, as most trends go in the fickle world of fashion—they evolve.

Chandelier earrings were BIG the last few seasons (pun intended). And bigger and bolder accessories continue to take center stage. Some well clod fashionistas even mixed it up: wearing different or mis-matched over-sized earrings, while others wore only a single chandelier earring. Others chose to wear more than one chunky chain necklace, layering them like they did their daintier cousins a few seasons back.

And Miki here of Miki a la Mode is sporting three trends in one: the chunky gold necklace, layering gold necklaces, and a statement chandelier earring. Oh la la she has style. As does the much sought after influencer Carolina Daur. But we all know that!

And the collar necklace could just be that mythical beast we fashion influencers love to chase

Could the collar necklace be the next go to trend in necklaces? I saw a few of these this past September, albite Fashion Week was a far cry from its usual pomp and circumstance. Would you wear a collar necklace? Or chandelier earrings? Do you follow trends or are you are trend setter? I am always on the look out for the next must have item that no one knows they want yet. And the collar necklace could just be that mythical beast we fashion influencers love to chase.

    I love gold it compliments so many outfits and especially cream and neutral color love the looks. Hope everything is well. Happy New Year.

    Interesting style! I learned to make jewelry because gold and silver necklaces just didn’t offer enough colors for my taste. I do think I prefer these collar and chunky necklaces to the dainty chains.

    I do love the gold collar necklace trend and would definitely wear one, although I prefer the slightly less chunky ones!
    Happy New Year!

    I have been into 70s- and 80s-style gold chains of late. I swear my Grandmother had several of these- I used to think they were so dated, but now I wished I’d have saved them! The gold collar is really fun. I’m definitely interested in giving this look a try!

    I only wear gold jewellery and while I usually opt for simple pieces, I love this trend. I like that you can still make a statement in something plain gold without having to go for something insanely chunky or bejeweled. This is definitely a trend I’d be willing to try x

    Right now, I’m into the collar necklace. Not sure if it will stick. I don’t follow trends too much unless I am able to figure out multiple ways to wear them.

    I love the idea of collar necklaces! They are so beautiful! The chandelier earrings are gorgeous too, but I think they would hurt to wear after a while!

    I love bold jewelry, although those earrings look too heavy for me. The gold statement necklaces are pretty though!

    I’ve never owned a piece like this but now I’ve seen how amazing they look, it’s definitely something I want to add to my collection! x

    I like it, I think that sometimes one thing like this can “dress up” all outfit. Great post dear

    I would definitely wear a statement/chandelier earring over a collar necklace as my neck is quite sensitive and I never know when i’ll react to the metal i’m wearing. Having said that, I really like the idea of wearing a collar necklace over a turtle neck top/jumper/dress. Maybe that’s a trend i need to tap into in June when the weather gets very cold here.

    We wore ‘chokers’ which were a bit tighter at the neck waaaaay back in the day…1970s. I loved them. Have a velvet one with a cameo drop. Love these sleek gold collars and the chunky gold chain collar. Those would both work so much better for me than long and dangly. Thank you for sharing this trend with this old grandma. Now off to find some collars!!

    Hey Allie, I hope you’re having a good start of the year so far!

    I love to see how creativity can be applied to jewels and other accessories, these are not the typical jewels you can find at Zara or at H&M. You can see many interesting details such as the concept behind the piece (I loved the little hand in one of the models).

    I think jewels are like the cherry on top to an outfit, and you can add a little bit of drama, tell a story or make an statement by selecting the right piece!

    Stay safe,

    I think we will embrace statement necklaces more over statement earrings at the moment! I find long dangly earrings are my favourite but they don’t work well with masks, haha! 🙂 We have to wear masks here at the moment indoors as there were 2 cases outside hotel quarantine and we don’t want that outbreak to spread.

    Hope that you are having a great week! 🙂 We are looking forward to having a picnic today, making the most of the warm weather 🙂

    I love this! I am also biased because I love gold jewelry and I currently wear a gold collar necklace on a daily basis! LOL. I do need to grow my collection because I absolutely love the stacked look! Have a great week!

      Yes the stacked look is fun for sure and nice to change things up!

    In my opinion, the use of collar necklaces is right for parties. But it is not right if it is used for daily use.

    Hi Allie
    Happy new year and virus free!
    one more trend that I loved, even in lockdown I wear those beautiful collar necklaces!

    I agree that the collar necklace might be the next great trend. Gold collar necklaces could definitely become super trendy. Nice photos, thoughts and selection.

    Great post, Allie! You keep me up to date on the latest trends! 😉 I tend to prefer daintier jewelry, so the collar necklaces may be a bit too “heavy” for me. However, they look fabulous on the models and influencers. I especially like that last one you featured at the end of your post. It’s more delicate and pretty to me. 🙂 Happy New Year, my friend! Hope you’re feeling a little better.

    I don’t wear a lot of jewelry, but I think I would try out a collar necklace! I have to say, I’m not much for making big statements, haha. But I think so many of the collar necklaces are so pretty.
