Necklaces come in different styles, and one style that is riding the trend wave is collier or collar necklaces. Owing its origin to the French word ‘collier’ meaning collar, these necklaces worn surrounding the neck can be open or closed, while half collar necklaces, have been quite popular with jewelry enthusiasts for a very long time.
Now that the Paris Couture Week and Biennale des Antiquaires are well over, we have a huge selection of luxurious colliers to choose from. If you love showstopper jewels, you are bound to be a devout fan of Boucheron, Cartier, Piaget, Chanel, Bulgari, Tiffany, Van Cleef and Arpels and De Grisogono, among others. However, there are two wonderful brands that you need to look up for bold, colorful collectibles as well as diamond-encrusted jewelry.
One is David Webb, best known for his animal bracelets and often described as “America’s Quintessential Jeweler,” he ingeniously combined yellow gold with diamonds and semi-precious stones. Daring pieces that is at once opulent and colorful, exemplify his design aesthetics.
The other hot favorite is Nirav Modi. Wowing us with patent gem-cuts, jewels set in a signature style that hinge on using metal minimalistically, designer Nirav Modi unveiled one-of-a-kind high-jewelry necklaces at the Biennale this year. Capturing the beauty of blossoms and Mughal art, Nirav Modi’s meticulously crafted Mughal necklace is a great choice to add more magic to your jewelry trunk.
