Sometimes the most striking lingerie accessory is delicately worn around the neck. A necklace can bring out a woman's curves, neckline, and collar bone. Jewelry is an extra touch on a woman that enhances an outfit, lingerie, attitude, or mood. And who is to say that you have to wear clothing at all with your necklace? The pieces below are certainly striking enough to stand alone!
In honor of traveling through London, I'm highlighting a couple pieces that are found in shops around here.
Hook my Heart & trace chain necklace (image to the left) is by Shaun Leane. According to the IDEX Magazine article on Leane, he was the British "Jewellery Designer of the Year" in 2004 and 2005. He has collaborated "...with Alexander McQueen and Givenchy; and display(ed) in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London's Natural History Museum and New York's Metropolitan Museum."

While I love traveling and enjoy the local sites, my heart remains in the states. In honor of the states I'm bringing you special pieces found at one of my favorite boutiques, Faire Frou Frou.
These fabulous necklaces are by Safia and Faire Frou Frou has new Spring and Summer pieces in the store. Alison is right when she says that you'll be "swooning over the new necklaces," that mostly have gold detailing and "...feature semi-precious stones such as turquoise, white jade, moonstone, white onyx and coral."

The last time I was in Faire Frou Frou, I fawned over Safia's pieces. These necklaces may look gorgeous in photos, but nothing quite compares with how striking they are in person!
There is also Alexis Bittar who was born in Brooklyn, worked closely with Patricia Fields on the jewelry for Sex in the City in 2002 and has stores in SoHo. His elegant and stunning Lucite Pave Pendant Necklace (image to the right) can be purchased at Harrods in London for the Sex & The City movie premiere on May 30th.
Like lingerie, sometimes the best accessories are barely there at all! Take look at the necklaces above or go through pieces in your jewelry box. Above all, have fun and Celebrate Your Inner Eve!
