If it’s cute and microscopic in size, we want it
From oversized accessories and larger than life statement earrings, this fall has seen all the trends power walk down the runway. But, a trend that seems to have came to light via Instagram posts and is sticking around no matter what - is the micro pendant. From Bali-esque beachwear to luxury lingerie, everything now seems to be teamed with tiny but exquisitely detailed pendants dangling from dainty chains. What we love about the micro pendant is that it automatically adds a touch of class and sophistication - after all - less will always be more. Plus, when they’re layered together in different chain lengths they look even more beautiful. From mini animals to spiritual motifs and everything in between, they are found within both the costume and fine jewellery sections - which is super for us, as we can find ones that fit any budget. Without further ado, here’s our top 12 micro necklaces.
