NAJO Guides | The Art of Necklace Styling
Through the millennia, necklaces have changed materials and shapes, but one thing remains the same. They tell stories imbued with meaning. They’re stories of religion, culture, royalty and mythology. And of sentiment, love and memories. Whether you buy a NAJO necklace, choker, pendant, or chain, your unique designer jewellery piece is imbued with as much beauty and meaning as the necklaces of the past. They’re necklaces that enable you to tell your story without words and express yourself creatively and beautifully while staying true to your personality.
Mix and match your necklaces by not only combining different lengths, but different textures. Necklaces with additional detailing like the Like a Breeze Necklace, features beautiful silver beads along the length of the necklace. Not only adding a textural element, but also a touch of dimension that catches the light beautifully. A NAJO Australian designer necklace is one of the creative building blocks of your distinctive look. When you browse our Sterling Silver Online Necklace Shop, you’ll discover a wealth of styles that exude understated elegance. From feminine chokers, contemporary collars and delicate chains to our signature designer necklaces and meaningful gemstone pendants – every quality piece is crafted by artisans with love.
Many of our necklaces feature a 5cm extension allowing you to wear your necklace no matter the style of neckline. Styles such as the Raya Baton necklace not only feature an extension, but the pendant is available in two sizes! If subtlety is more your style, the Teardrop Necklace also features a 5cm extension and the pendant is also available in two different sizes. With so many options available, you won't be asking how to wear them, but what one to wear. Choose a long necklace to drape or wrap around twice or create a head-turning look with one of our shorter signature handcrafted pieces such as the art-gallery-worthy Spratling Necklace, NAJ ‘O’ Necklace or the heavenly Pool of Tears Necklace.
Representing unbreakable bonds, our NAJO chains are exquisite. Our collections feature many types of chains that best complement the necklace design, including snake chains, paperclip chains, delicate trace chains, diamond-cut ball chains, belcher chains, round box chains, and twist chains. Our Verona Necklace makes a statement with its over-sized links, layer it up with its 45cm and 90cm lengths and you'll be sure to make an impact. For everyday styling, classic chains such as the Curb T-Bar Necklace are the perfect addition. Not only does the T-bar closure allow you to choose the length of the necklace, it's available in Sterling Silver or 14kt Yellow Gold plate.
For a touch of beauty, layer stone set pendants and fine chains, the Heavenly Pearl Gold Necklace features a button pearl set in 14kt gold plate and paired with both the Algonquin and Rod & Link Gold Chain, creates a breath taking necklace layer. If Sterling Silver is more your style, the Garland Aqua Chalcedony Pendant Necklace features Aqua Chalcedony set in cool Sterling Silver.
