Statement necklaces used to be a staple of mine in my college years, but I have since made a switch to dainty jewelry for everyday wear. I feel that smaller less prominent jewelry is great for work and casual wear. However, this is not to say I have outlawed my larger jewelry all together; I use them sparingly when I want to make a real statement (pun intended). Whether it be for special occasions or to just to dress things up a bit, statement necklaces are a great way to take an outfit from blah to wow. This makes these pieces much more special and a treat to wear.
Because statement necklaces are of a larger stature by nature, and mean more jewels, their price tag tend to be pretty hefty. However, I believe in quality over quantity and if you find the perfect fit for you, the price is well worth the wear you will get out of the quality make of the jewelry. Below are some statement necklaces I've had my eye on in different price points, just in case you don't want to splurge or if you really want to add a special piece to your collection like me!
