All Forspoken necklaces: Every necklace in Forspoken and its effects when worn
A full list of necklaces available in Forspoken along with the benefits of wearing each one
What is the best necklace in Forspoken? Forspoken protagonist Frey is notable for having unusual gear. Forget helmets and armor, this modern New Yorker gets her nails done when she needs a useful combat buff. Similarly, Frey's choice of necklace has a surprisingly important role to play in her loadout: far more than just an accessory, these jewels in fact grant Frey a variety of status buffs and other unique benefits when she wears them.
There are a lot of necklaces in Forspoken, and Frey only has one neck, so choosing the best necklace for your playstyle requires a bit of thought. On this page, we've listed every Forspoken necklace along with its effects and unlock conditions, to help you pick the best necklace gear for you.

Most necklaces are unlocked by clearing combat challenges on the map, which are marked by a pink necklace icon. However, in a few instances necklaces are granted for completing side-quests or as rewards for other in-game actions.
There are also a pair of exclusive necklaces available only to people who pre-ordered the game. PC players get a necklace called simply "Combo", while PS5 owners get the similarly-named "Symbol Combo". Since they're bonuses, these necklaces don't seem to grant any particular special effects, and are instead just nice cosmetic extras to celebrate your early support of the game.
Best early-game necklace in Forspoken
Beyond a doubt, the Orison necklace is the strongest choice for early game gear in the necklace category. Its special effect allows Frey to auto-heal whenever she defeats an enemy, and is extremely valuable for passively taking care of your health while you focus on getting to grips with the combat system. When combined with the Pelerine cloak, it should all but remove the need to keep track of your health during the game's early chapters.
How to upgrade necklaces in Forspoken
You can upgrade any owned necklace at a crafting bench, given the right materials. Just be aware that every piece of gear has a limited number of upgrade slots, and although you can replace an existing upgrade if you find another you prefer, you can't stack them indefinitely.
Now that you know the full catalogue of necklaces at Frey's disposal, there are some other fashion choices that require your attention if you want to make the most of your Forspoken gear.
