Take Notice Necklaces

My grandmother was one of the first fashionistas that I ever laid eyes on. Looking back at old photos, I always find myself marveling at her sleek, chic outfits and perfectly chosen accessories. She had a particular thing for jewelry - big cocktail rings, a long pearl necklace and pieces that always made a statement. I like to think that I inherited her love of fashion and jewelry, as well as her knack for choosing fabulous pieces - especially when it comes to big rings and bold necklaces.

With that in mind, I think that she would have loved this post on the big, bold necklaces that scream "notice me!" for spring and summer. Here are some of my favorites...

Amrita Singh necklace from www.couturecandy.com
Talk about a "pop" of color - I am all about this amazing necklace from Amrita Singh. Can't you just imagine it paired with a white collared dress shirt, undone a few buttons and dark denim skinny ankle length jeans? Clearly, I need to have this necklace because I have the outfit for it all picked out already.

For a softer look that is still eye-catching, try one of these stunners from Oscar de la Renta and Kenneth Jay Lane. The gold Oscar would look great with a little black dress, don't you think?

Elva Fields is always a given when it comes to statement necklaces - and if I had the extra cash in my wallet, the first place I would go for a bejeweled bauble or two. I love how she attaches vintage brooches and pieces to her beaded necklaces - it makes them truly unique.

Silver and crystals always seem to add an edgy vibe to outfits - and the girly statement necklaces in particular. Especially this one from Erickson Beamon - with the spiky cut crystals.

And finally, because we all need a yellow and sparkle in our wardrobe this spring, this beauty from Rodrigo Otazu. It reminds me of a classic necklace fit for a queen, with a colorful twist.
