If you have one delicate, special necklace you wear every single day (even in the shower), you might not consider how many rotating, clear-cut trends the jewelry category goes through every season. But, one look to the runways and the necks of celebrities, and you'll see just how many different styles enter the zeitgeist. And this year is no exception.

From fresh takes on personalized jewelry to long, oversized pendants we haven't seen since the early '00s, the pieces bound to be dominating 2017 will be leaving minimalism behind. Regardless of which trends you're planning to embrace, one thing's for sure: You're going to start paying way more attention to what's hanging around your neck. Click on for five styles you should make some room in your crammed jewelry box for.
