My Statement Necklaces

I used to only wear delicate jewelry pieces, but I’ve recently grown to love the effect and impact that a statement necklace adds to an outfit. A statement necklace can add a bold pop of color that makes you look like you put thought and effort into your outfit. Here are a few I currently own – I’m definitely looking to add to my collection!


My latest acquisition – I love how there are a jumble of uneven lengths and sizes in this necklace – it adds an informal elegance to simple outfits.


The infamous JCREW bubble necklace dupes from H&M – they cost a tenth of the price of JCREW ones ($15 rather than $150) – and are my most favorite statement pieces EVER. They are so light and easy to wear. I lived in my red necklace during our recent trip to Florida. I someday hope to purchase the JCREW original version as well.


My second favorite statement necklace – love the milky turquoise beads in this necklace – it matches nearly any summer outfit. This was a popular necklace – I’ve noticed it on MANY people. I purchased mine 2 years ago.

This pink and gold necklace works well with evening outfits – especially with nude or blush colored tops.

These pale pink beads are very pretty – but I find this necklace can be tricky to wear as the beads get twisted instead of lying in place.


I wanted a Nello Necklace after reading about them on Jean’s blog. This style is no longer being produced, but is often featured on sample sale sites (like Beyond the Rack and Hautelook) or eBay. I’m so glad I was able to get the white Jade version – this necklace adds the perfect amount of sparkle and fills your  neckline, but it’s so light and flat, you don’t even feel like you have anything on. I’d love to get a yellow or coral version someday.

F21 rings:

Just thought I’d add a quick pic of my 2 statement rings – both are from Forever21 and were under $5 each. I *LOVE* the white flower ring, it’s so well-made – when I was purchasing my Chanel WOC, the SA told me that he loved my ring and said it reminded him of the Chanel Camellia flower.

Do you like wearing statement necklaces? Describe your favorite ones – I’m always on the lookout and have my eye on a few more Forever21 and JCrew necklaces.

    They are all gorgeous! I really love the turqouise F21 necklace. I love that milky blue color too, so pretty with white and black. The H&M necklaces are also a favorite, but I need to wear mine more often! Lately, I'm more into rings and bracelets, so my necklaces have taken a bit of a back seat. I always try to rotate my jewelry though. I love your collection!

      I go through phases too – sometimes I prefer wearing light scarves to statement necklaces – they don't feel as heavy and add much needed warmth 🙂

    I love statement necklaces too… they add such a great "pop" to outfits. Yours are all so pretty, especially the F21 ones. I wear a lot of jewelry from House of Harlow… I really like the geometric shapes and black/gold combos.xo, alison*elle

      I love House of Harlow jewelry – especially the black triangular necklace that is really popular – it's such an iconic piece!

    I used to be like you I always just wore delicate pieces – mostly ones that had sentimental value but I started accumulating more and more statement pieces and now there are some days I feel naked without something bold! All your pieces look fabulous on you!

    Thanks sweetie – I remember one of the first things I noticed about you at the Marcelle meet-up was your gorgeous necklace – and you mentioned that you found a lot of lovely pieces through Avon. It's amazing how a strong necklace can make an outfit look complete in a way that delicate necklaces can't.
