Best Bet: Gold Crescent Necklace

Though chunky accent jewelry has made a comeback the past few seasons, it doesn’t have to be covered in studs or crystals to make a statement. This gold-plated crescent necklace strikes a bold but simple balance. The light-catching band hangs from a weighty, twisted gold chain that can be shortened to your collarbone or lengthened to complement higher necklines. Though the gold hue flatters sun-kissed skin now, it will also pair well with all-black and winter white looks when the weather turns.
