How To Wear Lariats

Beautiful lariats, the perfect gift.

Lariats are single cord necklaces, available in different lengths, strung with a combination of Silver, Semi-Precious Stones and Freshwater Pearls. They can be worn in several ways, with each arrangement creating a defined style of jewellery. All lariats are handmade and hence each is unique to you.

How to wear a Lariat

Full length: 
  • Hang the Lariat around your neck with the centre piece at the back.
  • Simply loop one strand over the other, just as you would start to tie a shoelace, and let the end pieces hang down.
  • You can move the tie higher or lower to change the overall effect.
  • This is the simplest way to wear a Lariat and is suitable for all lengths.
Wrap around: 
  • Place the centre piece of the Lariat at the front of your neck.
  • Take both end pieces and wrap the Lariat around the back of your neck, crossing it over, and bringing the end pieces round to the front.
  • Secure the Lariat by looping one strand over the other and let the end pieces hang down.
  • This style is suitable for all Lariats and is a lovely alternative to the full length version.
Scarf style:
  • To wear the Lariat in a shorter style hold it by the centre piece and fold in half, thereby doubling it.
  • Wrap it around your neck and place the two end pieces through the loop created by the fold to secure the Lariat.
  • This style is suitable for all Lariats and is stunning as a chunkier piece.

Choker style:
  • Hold one end piece centrally just below your collarbone.
  • Simply wrap the Lariat around your neck, once or twice depending upon the length, then loop one strand over the other to secure it at the front.
  • This style is suitable for all Lariats and is perfect for dressing up any outfit.
