Next week commences the holiday season, and after Thanksgiving, our calendars will fill to the brim with holiday event after holiday event. If you're anything like us, your mind will be set on precisely one thing: what to wear. While we have a few ideas already about holiday dressing, like the party dresses to shop for and the last-minute outfit ideas to have on hand, we're focusing on how to accessorize for every holiday party you have on your calendar (and even those last-minute invites). We know you don't want to be stuck searching far and wide for ways to accessorize every different look you may be planning, so we went ahead and highlighted the one jewelry item that's sure to dazzle no matter the look or occasion.
Diamond necklaces are a classic, and we happen to think they make for the perfect addition to whatever you wear during the holidays. But the diamond necklaces that are particularly stylish (and easy to style, for that matter) are those sitting on dainty chains and featuring creative designs. Think of these delicate pieces as the new diamond necklaces—they're more modern and fresh but still just as timeless. From colored diamonds to mismatches gemstones, you can wear any of the following necklaces to all your holiday parties and well after the holidays, too.
