Statement Jewelery

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Had this writeup ready and BOOM, my lap crashes .Now I have to go through this again from scratch.

Predominantly an earring blog, I thought would change that up a wee bit.I am not an accessories person ( Don't roll your eyes, except for EARRINGS offcourse ) but,I do have a small collection of statement neck pieces. They rarely see light of the day and times when my outfit looks boring and bare I have no other option other than to turn to them for help.
 Statement pieces never go out of style and are sure to turn a few heads. There are some essential Do's and DONT's to be followed while wearing you favorite statement neck piece/earrings/cuffs.

Dont's
  • Don't kill the look. Wear one at a time, either a single cuff or a single statement neck piece. Too much of statement pieces will attract the wrong king of attention.
  • Keep the outfit fuss free. Too much prints or loud work will never work with statement pieces. Your statement piece will merge with the outfit thereby, leaving the observer confused on whether to concentrate on your outfit or you statement piece.
  • Statement jewelery can such an eyesore if not worn appropriately .





The above statement piece is from MAX . Yellow+purple+red is the right combination to pep up any outfit. The color may turn out to be restrictive as the neck peice doesn't go well with some outfit colors.





The tribal neck piece can be worn with a kurta or salwar. Tribal neck pieces are like timeless classics and they go well with almost everything.


My favorite :).Turquoise+silver= What not to love?.


Beauty of a charm. I am a big fan of charms and this is one of those buys that I don't regret. Though the Eiffel tower is a lil heavy the charms perfectly compliments both western and eastern outfits.


Thrifted from Bangalore. It was love at first sight.


A flower brooch multi pearl strands. A gift from my friend cum colleague. Was pestering my boyfriend for something like this while he was in Mumbai ,he refused to buldge . My friend was there with me when whole conversation happened. For my birthday she gifted me this lovely neck peiece , the moment I showed it to mom, she wanted a strand of pearl too ( the strands are detachable so is the brooch). 


 Last but not the least "tree of life" xtra- length pendant and chain bought for less than 100 bucks. I saw similar ones on ETSY and paying 300+ for something like this was unimaginable so, I just decided that I have to go without. My patience paid off and one day while window shopping I found the beauty for under 100 bucks.
