Three Stella & Dot Necklaces I Wear on Repeat

+ how you can wear them!

In 2017, I purchased three Stella & Dot necklaces–my first purchase from the brand. Immediately, I was impressed with how heavy and well-made each piece was. Often times when you purchase trendy or costume jewelry, you’ll quickly find it to be constructed of cheaper materials. To my surprise, this was not the case with Stella & Dot. Each piece has been beautifully and carefully made, which is why the brand is now one of my wardrobe staples.

Stella and Dot has long been one of my favorite brands for trendy jewelry, but not just for their quality products. The company is a women-run business for women, with jewelry handcrafted in the United States, in New York and California. It is named after the founder’s grandmothers, Stella and Dot, and sets out to honor the “generation of women who crossed oceans, rolled up their sleeves, won the vote, raised kids, went off to work, and did it all with style and grace.”  The company’s unique designs are one of the reasons I love this brand so much, but even more, because my jewelry lasted years of love without showing a hint of wear.

After all of those years, I’ve finally become an affiliate for the brand, which means that I could make a commission off of your clicks or purchases. While that is the case now, I have purchased all of the products featured here with my own money, and without sponsorship. I’m proud to be an affiliate today because I can vouch for the exceptional quality and designs that make up the Stella & Dot brand.



The Rebel pendant may be my all-time favorite of my Stella & Dot pieces. It’s so versatile. I know I can add it to an otherwise plain outfit and it’ll instantly look polished. It’s sleek and simple. It’s been in the line for years, and still available in several metal colors: silver, gold, rose gold.

The Sutton necklace is a fantastic piece to add to your jewelry collection because it can be worn in so many different ways. First, it’s designed to be worn choker-style or long-and-layered. There’s also a crystal choker layer that can be removed from the rest of the necklace and worn on its own. The crystal layers add some extra glitz, but I appreciate that piece being removable. I don’t always want the extra sparkle, especially if I’m dressing for the office.

THE SHOWSTOPPER: Pegasus Necklace

The Pegasus necklace is the current version of the one I’m wearing below (which, unfortunately, is no longer available). That said, this statement necklace has been yet another staple for my wardrobe. In an otherwise casual or simple outfit, this necklace absolutely stands out. I love how well it looks with a graphic tee–probably my favorite pairing. I’m looking forward to swapping the leather skirt with my Everlane jogger pants.

As with all of the brands that I share with you, Stella & Dot is a tried-and-true favorite of mine. These necklaces always make me feel polished and chic with minimal effort (a major plus for all of us modern women!), and I know they’ll do the same for you. Plus, for those of us wanting to keep our collections small, take note that just a few strategic pieces are all you need to create so many very different looks!
