If you thought you’d seen the last of statement necklaces for a while, you’re not alone. We’ve been stocking our jewelry boxes with delicate pendants and chains in anticipation of spring’s jewelry trends. But these three stars, spotted within three days of each other, have had us wondering if the statement necklace trend is bigger than ever — literally!
Olivia Munn (far left) ringed her mint-green Naven dress with an oversized, spiny gold collar that had a Grecian feel. Nina Dobrev’s $198 Stella & Dot “Tempest” necklace looped layers of ribbons, chains and stones to contrast with the lace neckline of her French Connection dress. And Ashlee Simpson went even more over-the-top by picking a similarly complex Lizzie Fortunato bib necklace that was trimmed with feathers.
There’s no denying all three ladies look lovely, but we’re waiting for your judgment call before investing again: Are you ready for the return of giant statement necklaces? Which is your favorite?
