Friendship Necklaces Just Had A Grown-Up Makeover, Just In Time For Galentine’s Day

Celebrate like it's 2002.

Cast your mind back to secondary school; a time that was defined, fashion-wise, by what you wore to mufti day and whether or not you had a best friends necklace. You know the kind we're talking about, one half of a broken heart that fits together with your partner-in-crime's. Rosh Mahtani, founder of the fashion set's favourite jewellery brand, Alighieri, clearly remembers. And for her latest collection, a collaboration with e-commerce site Yoox, she's dedicated all eight pieces to friendship, love and sharing special moments.

At the heart of the capsule, naturally, is a best friends necklace that puts your original version to shame; a 24k gold-plated pendant that hangs on two silver chains - one for you and one for that special someone. At £230 - £115 each - it's a fitting tribute to your 'unbreakable bond', the very apt name of the necklace. The collection also has friendship rings, gold bands dipped in either blue or red ceramics, and chain-link padlock choker necklaces. With Valentine's Day approaching, there's never been a better time to thank your ride or die.
