You may have seen the lariats draped around the necks of celebrities at places like the Golden Globe Awards. Lariats are traditionally very long necklaces–long enough to wrap around your neck two or more times–with unattached ends so that you can tie and knot them in different ways to suit your style. Some necklaces have the lariat look, knotted or clustered in the front with a decorative tassel hanging down from the center, but are secured with a clasp in back or some sort of hook in front. You’ll find both types in this lariat necklace collection.
