"People will stare, make it worth their while."-Harry Winston
The statement necklace may have started as a trend a few years ago but has since become a wardrobe staple for most ladies. Think of it as that chic exclaimation mark to any holiday event outfit. This season's statements pieces take a cue from the necklace color trends of the summer (neons, pastels, yellows) but with more emphasis on richer jewel tones and sparkling crystals and rhinestones. Sure, diamonds might be a girls best friend but a good, inexpensive crystal necklace is like a fun pal (that also happens to transform any simple outfit). Here are a few of my favorites that are bold (without being too loud) and most of them are very kind to the ol' pocketbook.
