You knew it was time to swear off the charm trend when your mom showed up at dinner with little horseshoes and roller skates dangling from her wrist.
Understandable. But hear us out on this one: Maya Brenner’s necklaces put a whole new spin on the concept. The small collection of beautifully crafted pieces are elegant, unusual pendants strung on long, thin chains. No cheesy kids’ stuff here. The main charm on each necklace is a leaf; the others are gems, feather shapes, and beads. Brenner casts them in silver and fourteen-karat gold, but the prettiest is the gold-silver mix. (Who said you can’t wear them together?) Bottom line: You’ll never want to take this baby off.
At least not until mom discovers it.
