Of course, jewelry has evolved throughout history to include stones once regarded as mere pebbles that are now more sought out than ever before. The significance of jewelry has also evolved from a form of protection to a signal of status to a way to showcase your personal style.
Necklaces are pieces of jewelry all kinds of people like to wear. There are so many different styles to choose from as well.

The Y necklace, also known as the lavalier, gained popularity early in the 20th century. A feminine and beautiful piece of jewelry worn by actresses and performers, this necklace represents elegance like no other. These particular necklace lengths distinguish it from other styles.
A Y necklace consists of a long chain that has a small pendant often surrounded by other gems. It is best characterized by the lone gem that hangs from the end. The delicacy of this necklace is what makes it such a staple piece for women.
You can adjust the length of our Steinem coin pendant necklace to your liking, it looks beautiful with any outfit.
