So, let’s take a look at nine of the best modern necklace designs on our website. 

Long Diamond Long Modern Om and Moonstone Necklace - ClonferoDaPonte £1,496


We are going to start with this beautiful necklace from ClonferoDaPonte. The founder of the brand, Catarina Schippinger, uses spiritual, cultural, and religious symbols for inspiration for her jewellery pieces. 

This necklace, in particular, boasts many interesting features, from the sparkling diamonds to the moonstone. The oval ohm is a contemporary interpretation of the conventional ohm, as it is not a word but instead it is a mantra that is formed as a long elongated letter “o”. Despite being so unique, it is a versatile piece that can be worn with many outfits. 

Charette Link Necklace - Helena Mckenzie Jewellery Designs £605

Helena Mckenzie Jewellery Designs have been wowing us since 2015. Specialising in Art Deco-inspired silver and gold pieces, Helena grew up in a number of places, including Australia, South Africa, and Hong Kong. She uses this to find inspiration for the amazing pieces she creates. 

We love this link necklace she has created, which has been inspired by the architectural term that means collaboration for the purpose of addressing an issue or working together on a project. The linkages on the necklace shape life’s journey and boast beautiful symbolisation. 

Modern Yellow Gold Multi-Gem Harlequin Pendant Necklace - London Road Jewellery £495


You can make a really modern style statement with this beautiful pendant necklace from London Road Jewellery. It has been designed based on the highly sought-after patternation that tends to be found in opals. This is achieved by repeating a pattern of elongated squares and contracting diamonds. 

We have the incredible sister and brother duo at London Road Jewellery to thank for this majestic piece. They are known for making vibrant pieces of jewellery by mixing traditional hand settings with cutting-edge techniques.

Rhodium Plated Pave Diamond Link Lariat Mystic Moonstone Necklace - Ellen Mohr Designs £1,199

Another enchanting and impressive design; Ellen Moher has really delivered with this artisanal necklace, which features mystic moonstone and pave diamonds in a lariat style, which is at the height of fashion at the moment. 

Based in the U.S., Ellen has a reputation for creating beautiful jewellery pieces with a pronounced edge and bohemian ease. All of her creations have an undeniable aura.

18kt Yellow Gold Diamond Fiore Lariat Choker Necklace - ERAYA £740


Choker necklaces have really made a comeback in recent years, and this lariat-style necklace is definitely a modern interpretation of this trend. It features a stunning flower, which is crafted in sparkling round diamonds, as well as baguette diamonds at the end of the chain’s drop. 

The necklace has been designed and handcrafted by Hima Yalamanchili, the founder of ERAYA. She uses her passion for art and nature to create breathtaking jewellery pieces. 

Lucia Coral Coloured Stingray Leather Necklace - a cuckoo moment… £1,046

Bold, striking, and with a high-fashion edge, this necklace is the definition of an eye-catcher. From the bold red cover to the shagreen leather; what’s not to love about this unique creation? It is also incredibly easy to wear, as two magnets are hidden at the ends of the necklace. No more worrying about your hair getting caught in the necklace clasp!

The genius behind this jewellery piece is Lia Fallschessel. She has been creating jewellery for her brand a cuckoo moment… since 2005. 

Rhodium Plated Silver & Blue Topaz Veneto Trilogy Pendant - Mishanto London £105

Next, we have this stylish necklace from Mishanto London. Mishanto appreciates finish, feel, quality, and balance, creating designs that evoke power and are easy to wear. We definitely think that this necklace is a perfect representation of what the brand is all about.

It features rhodium-plated sterling silver, which is set with Blue Topaz. This pendant has additional texture and life thanks to the mottled, matt finish. It provides the perfect finishing touch for every occasion. 

Be grateful Be yourself Necklace - Ongkara £123


We’re seeing mantra jewellery become very popular, with a lot of people wearing pieces that have phrases engraved that are meant to inspire. 

This is definitely the case with this necklace, which is part of the Your Mantra Collection from Italian designer Ongkara. The doubled-up chain is exceptionally stylish, giving the necklace a cutting-edge feel and look. 

Double Swallow Silver Necklace - Roz Buerhrlen £240

The final modern necklace that we have selected is this double swallow necklace, which has been designed and handcrafted for you by UK-based Roz Buehrlen. This is part of her wonderful Swallows collection, with the majestic flight of this bird providing Roz with her inspiration. 

The attention to detail with this necklace really impresses. From the intricate fine chain to the two swallows; it really does tell a beautiful story. We love the use of the two 4mm black agate stones, which add an edge to the piece. 

So there you have it; nine of the top contemporary necklaces on our website. We have plenty of modern pieces, so we are sure that you will have no problem finding the perfect one for your signature style.
