Since v-neck wedding dresses and low back gowns are in high demand right now, back necklaces are hotter than ever! Back necklaces — necklaces designed with the focal point in the back — are one of the hottest trends for brides right now. You have probably seen back necklaces before, but it seems like these necklaces from Blair Nadeau Bridal are true works of art. Blair is paving the way for this emerging trend and, as a result, she is one of the most sought-after wedding designers for back necklaces made with pedants, crystal quartz, agate stone, gold fringe, and more.
If you’re ready to hop on board with this necklace trend, get ready to be inspired! We’re sharing seven beautiful back necklaces with a little something for everyone from agate to leaves to sparkly rhinestones. Which one is your favorite?

First of all, what makes back necklaces so unique? Rather than traditional necklaces which feature the focal point in the front (i.e. a pendant, charm, or pearls), wedding back necklaces have the visual interest in the back. Since these necklaces are made in great detail, they look absolutely gorgeous from the front and the back. As a result, back necklaces continue to make a statement whether viewed from the front or the back.
It seems like brides especially love back necklaces because they look great (and photograph well) as you walk down the aisle or stand at the altar. Therefore, guests will take notice of your gown and your exceptional jewelry from any view.
Since back necklaces are a unique twist on traditional necklaces, brides admire this jewelry for being “out of the box” and more unique than typical jewelry.

I look forward to hearing which necklace is your favorite from this collection. You can see my top pick — editor’s choice — in one of the necklaces below.
1. Silver crystal drop back necklace
This stunning delicate chain necklace has a layered y-drop design, beautiful Preciosa crystals and rare crystal Swarovski flowers.
2. Pearl drop necklace
This necklace features a double layered front and back with hand linked alternating clear crystal Swarovski channel links; also, you’ll find dainty 6mm Preciosa clear crystal beads.
3. Gold fringe back necklace
The gold fringe style is my favorite because it is also fun for everyday wear!
In addition to its bohemian inspired look from the back, this necklace looks incredible from the front!
4. White agate back necklace
This silver and white agate necklace is one of the most on-trend back necklaces because it features highly sought-after agate stone. It has a beautiful cable chain that drapes and crosses in an intricate way; in addition, this gorgeous slice of natural white agate has metallic plating to make a stylish statement.
5. Rhinestone y-back necklace
This beautiful back necklace offers tons of sparkle and shine! This is one of the most stylish layered back necklaces with a dainty delicate single layer chain and a beaded bar of a single Preciosa rhinestone bead and two stardust beads.
6. Gold leaf back necklace
Gold leaf back necklaces like this one are another sought-after trend, since bohemian leaves are so popular. This delicate necklace has a layered style and three clear crystal rhinestone beads. The longer layer has a single rhinestone bead pendant drop and matte plated etched leaves.
7. Three tiered back necklace
This three tiered back necklace comes to a chic V shape and is ideal for a low back gown. Each tier has a single clear Swarovski crystal navette drop. Most noteworthy, of course, is how this single strand of crystal chain wraps around the front necklace for a choker-style finish.
This necklace looks simple, yet stunning, from the front.
