Spring Essentials: The Statement Necklace

Ever since I picked out my now beloved Hobbs jewelled statement necklace out of a massive bin at their Sample Sale back in January I've really developed a thing for statement necklaces. Going to London Fashion Week really did not help, where there were so many beautiful and creative necklaces on display. As it stands, I still have not purchased another one, but I am planning to - even my friends have started to comment that I seem to be wearing it every time I see them! 

I spied this beetle necklace in Topshop on Oxford Circus the other evening while I was waiting for friends, and I recognised it instantly from one of Nicolette's recent blog posts. I love jewellery with unusual elements such as insects, and I think this necklace will add a little bit of individuality and quirkiness to any outfit. 

My favourite piece in this entire roundup is the neon yellow rhinestone and chain necklace from Forever 21, a total steal at only £8.40! As many of you know, I wear a lot of black so I think this will be perfect to jazz up some of my outfits - I actually caved and bought it the last time I was in Forever 21 in Westfield (I prefer their Westfield store to their Oxford Street one, I think it is just so much easier to browse in and much less crowded!)

I think this detailed collar necklace from Accessorize is lovely, and its pastel mint green shade means that it is bang on trend to boot! I also think this rope necklace from Monki is lovely, because it is just simply really unusual.
In other news, do you remember that brilliant River Island campaign video shot in Los Angeles I posted at the end of my Spring Essentials: Purple Pastel Skinny Jeans post? The people at River Island have just posted a sequel video of the models messing around, I don't know about you, but I find it absolutely hysterical!

What is your favourite statement necklace you've seen so far this season? Are there any total bargains like the yellow neon Forever 21 number I need to know about?!


  1. I could never put that Topshop necklace round my neck! Just the thought sends shivers down my spine!

    I really need a statement necklace. I'm in the middle of making one but very tempted to get a couple from F21, they seem great value.
