Opaque Stone Necklaces Put Plastic Pieces in Their Places

It’s no secret that ’80s-inspired see-through jewelry is going to be hot for spring (think chunky cuffs and outsized glass necklaces), but translucent plastic isn’t for everyone. If you want the feminine essence of sparkly jewelry without the outlandish bling, look for pieces with opaque faceted stones and briolettes. They’re not your typical twinkling gems, so they’re edgy and unexpected, and since they’re not striving to be invisible like some of the trendy baubles out there, you’re arguably getting more for your money.


The unique cut-rock shapes of the nude stones on this Cara Accessories stone bib necklace ($85) combined with the bib make casual and evening looks more dressed up.



An off-centered cluster of opaque blush and rose droplets adds drama to this multistrand jet choker ($58) from White House Black Market.


The milky mint color of the briolettes on Milly’s Camilla Teardrops necklace ($245) can read as a soft, springy pastel or a bright contrast to neutrals, depending on what you pair it with.


Get the trendy ’80s look without picking plastic. ModCloth’s Highlight-her necklace ($24) is an expensive way to infuse some way-out-there neon into your wardrobe.


Think turquoise is the only opaque blue stone out there? Not so: Amrita Singh’s Wisteria Hampton necklace ($250) combines deep indigo stones with bright gold for a completely exotic look.

Check out more of the best necklaces for spring, plus skinny jeans and black dresses to wear them with.
