The lines created by a lavalier are sleek, elegant, and sensual. Finely crafted gold with beautiful detail, ending in a single shining gemstone, like a tear running off a cheek, or a dew drop on the tip of a leaf. Lavalier necklaces have existed in some form for hundreds of years but really hit their stride at the start of the 20th Century. From a French actress to flapper murderess Roxie Hart, the lavalier has been a favorite among the fashionable.
