The statement necklace is a long time friend and confidant of mine. I don’t go to her every day or even every week. Often a month will pass without seeing eachother, but we both know I always come back to the sweet, sweet statement necklace. Last week, I introduced a client to said neckalces. The main reason for deocrating her neck, she can’t wear earrings. Even if her ears were peirced, she is a mommy of three and we all know what little hands want to do with big earrings… pull, tug, ouch.


My go to stores for statement necklaces under $150 is Banana Republic, J Crew and Macy’s. For this client, I took her to Macy’s and picked up some Kenneth Cole peices. I have added some other options for you folks.

Statement necklace tip: Wear it with a high neckline, a very low, or strapless necklace. Generally, you want the necklace to rest completely on your skin or completely on the fabric of your top, not half on – half off. Also, best to skip earrings or only wear studs with large neck decór.
