silver i'm hammered necklace by delia langan jewelry in brooklyn new york

One of the great things about DLJ is that it's so easy to wear.  You can throw it on and run out the door without even thinking about it.  But did you know that there's a "wrong" way to put on some of your jewelry?

I can't tell you how many times I've run into friends who are wearing one of our necklaces . . . backwards!  If you haven't already noticed, most of our Everyday Necklaces actually have a front and back.  The number one culprit I see people wearing backwards is our XL Different Strokes Necklace pictured (backwards!) below :

Here you can see the backside of the necklace, exposing the loops that the chain goes through. This side is also slightly less shiny because this is the side of the metal that hits the steel block when it's being forged.  The correct side of the necklace is pictured below.

Here the gold fringe appears to be floating on the chain, and you can see the hammered details on the gold since this is the side that the hammer hits when the fringe is being forged.  Much better!

Even necklaces that don't have the same loops have a front and back, though they're much less obvious.  In fact, any necklace that has a hammered piece has a correct side.  You can only tell by looking closely to see which side is brighter and smoother.  So next time you grab one of your necklaces to put it on, take a quick look at the piece to make sure you're putting it on the right way!
