With Le Pendentif Boule and La Pendulette 8 Jours, luxury fashion brand Hermes has proven that watch necklaces are just as functional as -- and often more fashionable than -- traditional wristwatches. The two creations consist of an elegant silver chain, onto which is threaded a gorgeous miniature pocket watch. This little time-teller is studded with diamonds, glittering in the light and making for an incredibly elegant piece of jewelry.
Since they were inspired by pocket watches, these Hermes creations can be opened or closed, either revealing the watch's clock face or hiding it from view. This allows the pendant to transition from a functional timepiece to a simple piece of jewelry with very little effort from the wearer.
With these delightfully elegant timepieces, Hermes has proven once again that fashion and function do not have to be mutually exclusive.
