Lariat literally means a rope in the form of a lasso. I agree, that’s not exactly selling this beautiful type of necklace!

However I can tell you that It’s one of the most versatile pieces of jewellery you can own.

Lets start with what is a lariat. It’s a necklace that is one continuous length of chain, leather, ribbon in fact any stringing material. The important fact is that it has no clasp.

A lariat necklace is usually fully adjustable as you can do it up anywhere along it’s length. Some are so long to can wrap it twice round your neck and still have enough length for it to look like a layered necklace set.

It ties in half a knot wherever you want it to.

You can wear it so it looks like a choker from the front with a back drop. Or wear it with the ends at the front so it looks like a y necklace.

Another way is to wrap it round your neck and let the ends hang loose.
