Let's Talk: Statement Necklaces (Pt. 2)

Monday, May 26, 2014

         Today I wanted to share with you my tips on purchasing statement necklaces.  But before I do, be sure to check out last week's post Let's Talk: Statement Necklaces (Part 1).

Here are my tips for purchasing statement necklaces:

1.)  Feel the Weight:  In order to determine this, you must try the necklace on.  A statement necklace should not be too heavy.  If it is too heavy, you may not be able to wear it the entire day.  You want it to be just right!

2.) Know Your Brands: When it comes to fashion jewelry, it's about trial and error.  I have purchased necklaces before that were on the pricier side, only to have them tarnish within a few months.  On the flip side, I have purchased cheaper statement necklaces that have lasted years and are still in mint condition.  Here is a small list of places I like to purchase statement necklaces from: Topshop, Anne Klein, Cookie Lee, Betsey Johnson, Lucky Brand, BCBG.  These are just brands that I love, but there are so many other great brands.

4.)  Think About Versatility:  Be sure to think about how many outfits you could wear it with.  You should buy a necklace that matches what you already have in your closet, instead having to buy outfits to match the necklace.

5.)  Check It:  As always, before you buy the necklace, it's always a good idea to make sure no parts are broken and that all the rhinestones, pearls, etc. are in place.  

Hope this blog post helps you to find a statement necklace that is perfect of you!  Stay tuned for next week's blog post where I'll show you how I like to style statement necklaces!  Sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
