Best Bet: Leather Drop Necklace

Statement necklaces can often skew either ultra-expensive or kitschy. House of Harlow’s leather drop necklace manages to be affordable and still look high-end. Geometric leather pendants hang from a short 14-karat-gold-plated chain, for a look that feels luxurious with an edge. It’s reminiscent of Collette Ishiyama’s Art Deco-inspired stingray jewelry, but with a bolder effect. Pair it with your leather jacket or wear it with silk or cashmere for contrast.
