Fashion’s 2013 Fall Pendant Necklaces

The statement necklace will be stepping aside for 2013 fall fashion accessory must-have — the pendant necklace. But that doesn’t mean this new, yet pastime favorite will go without being notice. The pendant necklace can be equally dramatic, and this season’s necklaces are taking a dramatic plunge. The 1970s in my opinion was the “Decade of the Pendant” and The Napier Co. presented some of its most iconic pendant necklace pieces during this era.

The Napier pendant necklaces of the early 1970s ranged from large oval-shaped motifs to intricate open metalwork or large suspended hammered plaques. These designs were often complemented with matching cuffs, which were equally alluring. To read more about pendant necklaces of the 1970s go to page 440 of The Napier Book.
