Move over, cocktail rings, cuffs and stiletto earrings: Spring is all about the necklace. From collars to beaded strands, many New York ready-to-wear designers turned to jewelers to help finish off their looks. Ann Watson, vice president and fashion director of Henri Bendel, anticipates that bold necklaces will drive spring jewelry sales. “We’ve seen a variety of necklaces so far, from bib styles to the multilayered look, which are looking fresh and updated through the mixture of fabrics, ribbons and stones,” she says. “These new elements add a great deal of drama and focus to the neck.”
