Statement necklace

Can you help me find a statment necklace to go with a plain navy maxi dress.

Im currently 20weeks pregnant and Ive given up trying to find summer maternity clothes that arent hoping something like this might brighten up an otherwise boring outfit and I can justify the spending by saying I can wear it afterwards.

Im only looking for costume jewellery...somthing colourful but not sparkly. I really liked this last year but stupidly didnt buy it


Im aiming for a slightly less polished version of some of the maternity looks WIT blog had last year but cant afford Miu Miu

oooooh...quite like those (esp in pink and turquoise) and they are very cheap too.

always a bit nervous about buying without seeing first tho

New Look and Top shop usually have some pretty good statement pieces in their costume jewellery sections. New Look is usually the cheaper of the two. Only good if you have those stores local to you of course

DP is the same jewellery as Top Shop a lot of the time as it's the same company and its always cheaper in DP.

Next have a few decent neon necklaces in at the moment. I had an email from Mango with a few on too.

thank you all...did have a look in DP and New Look but they werent quite right...the New Look ones looked a bit cheap....Im afraid Im one of those people who could make Prada look like Primark !

Will try Mango and Next (work in Leeds so have been waiting for an excuse to look at the new Trinity shopping centre)

Try Wallis or (surprisingly) phase eight.

How much do you plan to spend?

What about this website & you can use the necklace after DC is born too

I've got the pleasure of pushing my dd1 around Trinity all day Sunday in a wheelchair as she's broken her ankle. Deep Joy. Though if the sun shines, the hollister boys might be in their shorts perve

Thanks for all the going to wait for the maxi dress to arrive from asos so I can judge where it needs to sit but it looks as if I should be able to get something quite easily.

Awks - mmm hollister boys... shame you need a torch to find them in the shop and earphones to block out the music too old for all that

aoife24 Wed 01-May-13 20:12:36

What about these

mrspaddy Wed 01-May-13 20:21:28

Ooh the Next pink one by BallerinaZena is very close to the Zara one.. lovely....hmm feeling less than glam now ;(

Another vote for Mango, and also Forever 21.
