statement is great, but delicate is better

For my 18th birthday, my parents gave me a diamond necklace - the diamond is actually from a ring that my grandparents gave my mom for her 18th birthday that she then had reset into a necklace for me. A decade later, I wear that necklace 99% of the time - it just goes with everything. While I love big necklaces too (my favorite is my big multi stranded pearl necklace), I have always been a person who will wear the simpler items more often.

I receive questions about my necklace all the time, and while my exact necklace is obviously not available, the style is! It's called a floating diamond necklace, and can be found at a variety of price points. Below are three very similar styles, from a Target version to a real diamond version.

While I usually wear my necklace by itself, I think it looks so cute layered with other delicate pieces too. Below are a few options, from the mrs. for the recent bride to the starfish for the girl going on a beach vacation (jealous!).
