A universal necklace you can always wear?

I have never been much of a jewelry person but I am slowly converting. I would love to pick out a delicate (timeless?) necklace I could wear everyday and with any outfit but I really don't know where to look for one.

I have a white gold engagement ring so would probably like to go along the lines of a similar metal to not contrast it too much. So silver or white gold probably.

Where does everyone go for their jewelry nowadays? Any good online retailers or high street stores worth looking into?
Or even better - considering my taste can be questionable - any actual pieces that are nice?

I have a silver necklace from Lines & Current I wear every day. Wasn't expensive at all, I never take it off and toddler DS has yanked on it many times and it is still fine nearly 2 years on. All their designs are modern and simple.

If I wanted silver I'd look for a jeweller making one off pieces on etsy. Or go by recommendation.

I have an Ashley Clarke locket necklace which I wear daily. Really beautiful and timeless. I think they have some discounted for Black Friday

This is my ‘everyday’ necklace. I rarely change it.

I have a gorgeous necklace from Cornish Bluebelle, a handstamped drop bar necklace. I’ve worn it everyday pretty much for probably 2 years nearly. So inexpensive too.

Georg Jensen silver. Infinity or moonlight grapes are both light and beautiful (but they're also really expensive). I love the Nina Ditzel 2021 reissue as well but I'm pretty sure it's not worth a month's wages.

I have this from Pandora. It’s absolutely beautiful and I wear it all the time.

I second the recommendation for Lines and Current. I bought an everyday necklace from there when DS was born and it looks as good as new even though I wear it nearly every day (and he manhandles it a lot).

I have an initial pendant from Tiffany and a star sign pendant on a white gold chain. Haven't taken it off for about 7 years!

this is MN - no question, you must have a string of pearls to clutch grin

DH gave me a princess cut diamond set in white gold on our wedding day, and I've rarely taken it off since (18 years). For my 40th my friends bought me a Tiffany's silver starfish pendant. I wear this daily too.

Depends on your style. My everyday necklace was a gift for a landmark birthday and was from https://www.rustjewellery.com/

A simple diamond pendant. Classic, elegant and timeless. I only take mine off when I am swapping it for something more dramatic for a specific outfit.
