The Sautoir Necklace


A long chain necklace, looped around the neck and falling against bare skin, complete an outfit on subtly seductive note.The sautoir harks to the 19th century when chains were worn scarf-like around the collarbone and hung over the shoulders.


The piece is normally associated with the 1920’s, thanks to the Flappers, who wore it with long tassels at the end. Today, we suggest you wear your sautoir enticingly with an unbuttoned silk shirt, or over a thin knit, to add an exquisite highlight.
