Statement necklaces are must-have pieces for every jewelry collection. Thanks to Francesca’s, these types of necklaces, as well as many others, are available in enormous variety. Above is a tri-chain stone necklace, which is about 16-17″ in length with the option to be shorter. I’m normally not one for chunky necklaces like this, but this proved to be the perfect addition to a lot of holiday outfits in the winter, and has the flexibility to be dressed up or down with a chosen outfit.
Below is an Egyptian-style Cleopatra inspired ivory & gold chain, which also hangs about the same length as the necklace above. It gives off a more exotic vibe, but can easily be flexible with the outfit of choice as well. It’s bold but not overwhelming; having the pieces end at a lower point, rather than go up higher, differentiates this from looking like a constricting collared necklace.
Of course, it is always important to display your necklaces properly, to avoid tangles, chips, and destruction. This wicker-weave frame comes with mock brass hooks, enabling many necklaces to be displayed without the fear of damage. You can find relatively cheap & chic looking frames like this at Target, World Market, Pier 1, etc.
