New Statement Necklaces

It's all about the statement necklace with me. I went on at length about them before HERE, so I won't bore you again but I thought I'd do a quick update on those that have joined my collection.


This absolute beauty was a birthday present from my sister in law and I've been wearing it pretty much non stop ever since. The perfect Summer shade- I think of the ocean whenever I look at it and unsurprisingly, it looks rather well with a striped tee. It's no longer available online but if you check Accessorize stores you could well be in luck.


I had spotted this art deco esque number on a lot of jewelry sites for close to €30 but then I read Aising's post on getting the same jewelry from eBay for a fraction of the price and I tried it for myself. This cost me about €6 with free postage and no taxes, even though I ordered from China. Yes, it took an age to get here but as I didn't want it for anything in particular, I was delighted with my little bargain! It goes with pretty much everything too, so quite the bonus there.


The lovely Sharon from Behind Green Eyes sent me this mint green stunner for my birthday and I love it so much. I have a thing for green stoned jewelry- always have, so this is very much my cup of tea. I generally wear this with a plain navy or grey t-shirt and let the necklace do all the talking! Just look at how pretty and ladylike it is. Swoon.


When we were on holidays in the UK, we visited a design museum and this caught my eye from outside the gift shop, as we were walking past at speed, so I knew it had to be mine. The pastel stones remind me of sweets and I love how it hangs, plus it goes with so much.


Lastly, my dear friend Eileen bought me this very cool Aztec style necklace for my birthday, which I think came from New Look. I love the neon coral- so summery and goes perfectly with a tan and a white off the shoulder t shirt (for those of you still feeling Summery, obviously. I am currently pasty white and stuck indoors). 

Are you still feeling the statement necklace love?

  3. I love your picks, nothing like a statement necklace to amp up even the most simple of outfits and why pay through the nose for something you can pick up just as easily for a tenth of the price on eBay? Great haul :)

  5. I have the second one. Also from eBay for about €6. It's brilliant isn't it, and it goes with everything and dresses up even the most boring outfit.

    1. It really does go with everything and there's no way you'd think it was €6 looking at it!!
