A treasured piece of jewelry is one that is not only able to transition from cocktails at midnight to caftans at brunch, but its functions ought to be as versatile as its design. A necklace, perhaps, can be worn as it was made — whether layered with varying finishes or worn on its own. Its raison d’être, however, can extend to decorating one’s wrists, with the simple pendant acting as the antithesis to the charm bracelet. If anything, wearing one’s necklace the “wrong” way is a cheeky bit of show and tell; nothing casually shows off an excellent manicure like hand jewelry that intrigues the eye. —Margarita Buenaventura
