Statement necklace that isn't large?

(20 Posts)

I don't suit large pieces of jewellery. Fine, delicate and quirk is the way to go according to my HoC consultant (and silver-toned as I am a winter). Does such a thing as a "statement necklace" exist that fits these criteria? If I google statement necklace I always seem to get large, clunky pieces that I'm sure suit many people but not me.

Diamonds. They're small and delicate but sparkle like nothing else grin

Alex Monroe necklace?

Depends on your budget and how statement you want to me. Agree diamonds are lovely but these are also options:

I like the Alex Monroe ones on here and yes there are also some £££ ones

mainly gold though

I would say for some unique quirky stuff that isnt £££ etsy is the way to go.

Have you looked at A Weathered Penny? Cheap as chips and a bit quirky. I've fancied this one for ages:

Thank you, some lovely ideas. Just wish my budget stretched to Alex Monroe! Its funny that the ones I was automatically drawn to on the website were the most expensive ones - even without looking at price tags! sad

I know what you mean, I also like unusual but not chunky. Big wooden beads aren't me at all.

I'm going to have to confess my viewing habits to link to this blush, but QVC had some jewellery on last night by Folli Follie which I thought was lovely. They aren't cheap but not off the clock either.

The heart necklaces are lovely in that they join together to become a 4 leaf clover. I loved them.

How about several longish chains together? I find that long lines suit me better than big, chunky pieces. M&S have lots of things that are beady/chainy etc. 2 or 3 of them combined could look lovely. Or a very long necklace round wound twice (once tight to your neck and the other hanging down iyswim). Have a look at some of these.

Sheila Fleet have some beautiful designs inspired by the ocean and islands of Orkney..

Delicate but still statementy?

TheGruffalo2 Wed 19-Feb-14 19:49:45

Oh my poor Barclaycard bill... Some amazing designs and companies I'd never heard of before. Thank you everyone.

I discovered these the other day. Good designs, not weighty but at a very affordable price.

Bit of a range of prices!
Maybe too chunky?
Coins
Hearts
Locket? - they have a few designs, could look lovely layered without being too heavy?
Again, maybe too chunky?
Gold, but a similar style in silver could look lovely?
Again, could look stunning if you could double up
Really interesting, and quite delicate?

I have the same issue. Being large of bust a big necklace just looks too cramped, but really fine ones look a bit spindly, plus my young children have been know to break them!

These ones aren't cheap but they are the sort of statement necklace that you can wear with anything, day or night (I have one similar to the last one but with a 'knot' link rather than the heart and I wear it all the time, plus it is toddler proof which is a bonus...)

Do you like the delicate jewellery at & Other Stories - some of it is lovely, and like Alex Monroe, but for less ££. Ditto some of the jewellery at Oliver Bonas.
