I really love simple gold necklaces that resemble charm bracelets. The first necklace like this that I wore I had given to myself as a reward for finally finding a job the summer I decided to stay in New York City during college, instead of living at home with parents. (That's not to say my parents weren't seriously helping me out, but at least I was working) But it must have fallen off, because one day the necklace was just gone. Shortly after losing the necklace, I received a beautiful gold chain, with little concentric gold circles as a pendant, from a certain gentleman for graduation. Sadly the clasp broke and I'm afraid to wear it thinking it could just slip off like the first one did.
I know it's just jewelry, but I place a lot of sentimental value into each piece of jewelry I own, and feel sad when it disappears or breaks.These are just perfect, and at very reasonable prices. Sea Monster (bottom right) is my favorite.
