THE STATEMENT NECKLACE
Make a grand entrance with this strikingly embellished pendant necklace – pair it with any outfit for an opulent final flourish, says Style & Living’s Charlotte Cox
As a self-confessed magpie and the daughter of a gemologist, I’ve always had a thing for jaw-dropping jewellery. Statement necklaces and decadent accessories were seen at the spring/summer 2014 catwalk shows, from Balmain and Dries Van Noten to Dolce & Gabbana. This Limited Edition rope necklace with a bejewelled pendant captures the trend perfectly. It’s special enough to stand out in, yet affordable and versatile enough to bring life to even the simplest outfit. Dress up a plain top and off-duty boyfriend jeans, wear it with a simple black shift or go for full-on drama by pairing it with your favourite party frock. This piece is proof that you don’t need to take out a bank loan to wear lavish-looking jewellery every day.
