Any suggestions for a statement necklace?

I've bought this foil sweatshirt from Whistles (with the 25% from Grazia). It's a bit of a departure for me. I'm not normally one for shiny, attention grabbing clothes. This ebay listing probably demonstrates its shiny-ness best.

I was hoping to wear it for (rare) evenings out; with jeans (and maybe a scarf? suggestions on dressing it down welcome!) for weekends; and with a beige cotton straight/pencil skirt, heals and a statement necklace for work. I wouldn't normally wear a sweatshirt to work, but thought I might be able to get away with it as the sweatshirt is quite glam and a necklace would make it seem a bit put-together.

So, I had in mind some sort of cream statement necklace. Went shopping today, couldn't see anything that hit the mark. Does anyone have any suggestions for nice statement necklaces?

I saw this coral flower necklace in Oasis and also this cream flower necklace. But they are a bit more than I wanted to pay and I think they might be a bit too much. Any opinions and suggestions appreciated!

Did you try Monsoon?

If you go to page 140-141 the Avon Lilian necklace is �12 and very similar to the Oasis cream flower necklace

Thanks myalias, I'll bear that one in mind

Theonlyone, yes, I went to Accessorize. I vaguely remember seeing one in there and thinking 'that might do', but I can't remember what it looked like <heads off to peruse their website>>

Oh and New Look and River Island might be worth a squids if you haven't already

I think Zara and Warehouse do the best statement necklaces.

Someone linked the other day to forever21 and there were loads of great looking statement necklaces and a lot were under a tenner.

Forever 21 has absolutely loads and I bought a lovely mint coloured one.

this is nice

I recently bought this.

I got the second oasis one - I think that because it's a neutral colour it stops it from looking like too much. Wearing it today with a pale pink sweater but it goes with everything smile

I agree the Zara necklaces are beautiful.

Search Etsy.....there are lovely pieces there.

Something like this would work with your foil sweatshirt,-1&sh=0&pge=1&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Gold

One of the posters on the MNV thread has a gorgeous statement necklace that we all admired at a meet up. She said it was from Primark, so I would have a look there too! It's beautiful and looks expensive but cost her a fiver!

Thanks everyone. I've ordered three necklaces from Forever 21 which, even with postage, comes to less than one of the Oasis one. Fingers crossed at least one hits the mark.
