The Most-Wanted Necklaces of 2024, From Metal Collars to Corded Pendants


Last year, we saw the rise of statement earrings that became a go-to outfit-finishing piece. The trend was so impactful that it is still defining how fashion insiders are getting dressed and accessorizing their looks. Now, however, we are seeing the undeniable rise of necklaces as the key jewelry item to wear.

Brands such as The Row and Sophie Buhai have made it clear that pendant necklaces are an essential style, often draped low across the chest. Thick metal collars that almost resemble a bangle are on the rise thanks to jewelry designers such as Lié Studio and Jessica McCormack. Tennis necklaces have been a growing category that is about to get even bigger due to the surge in tennis style following the release of Challengers. Beaded necklaces and styles with playful charms are also gaining popularity and feel primed for summer holidays. Ahead, shop the best necklaces to add to your wardrobe in 2024 and see more on the key trends.

Corded Pendant Necklaces

Corded pendant necklaces were prevalent in The Row’s S/S 24 collection, so it was only a matter of time before they became one of the most in-demand jewelry pieces this year. It is a style that can really play into the personality of the wearer because there are so many pendant options to choose from.

Metal collars feel like a grown-up take on choker necklaces. The bangle-like pieces exhibit restrained elegance while also exuding an undeniable sense of cool. They look equally beautiful when paired with a décolletage-baring strapless dress or a simple crewneck T-shirt.

Tennis Necklaces

There is perhaps no jewelry piece as timeless or classic as a diamond tennis necklace. The versatile forever item is one piece that is truly worth the investment.

Beaded Necklaces

Beaded necklaces feel especially primed for summer. The styles we are seeing this season are finished with polished stones in a range of shades, including lapis blue and burgundy. Wear one with everything from a poplin dress to a swimsuit.

Charm Necklaces

Playful charm necklaces are anything but new, but one thing that is interesting is how they have dominated the fine jewelry space. Brands such as Jessica McCormack, Anita Ko, and Foundrae each have cult styles that you’ll find in collectors’ wardrobes.
