Not since the lavish days of Dynasty have we seen so much unapologetically bold gold. This heavy hardware will have everyone lunging at your jugular, but never fear – they just want an up-close look at the armory’s worth of metal hanging from your neck. While Lanvin’s Oracle collar (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,242) will give you the strength of pure metal, Vita Fede’s subtler (yet no less intimidating) black leather and gold match (on Vita Fede for $625) will happily arm you with just as much style.
