Modern statement jewelry is all about the unexpected. Scale, color, texture, and material play together to create finishing touches that are unique and surprising. One of the best trends in this area consists of large draped clusters of mixed chains; a staple for the past few seasons, this summer they’re getting a fresh update with an infusion of pearls. The addition of shimmering iridescent beads brings a bit of the uptown girl to these otherwise dark and punky accessories. The dainty edge makes these necklaces appropriate for wearing to work under blazer, or for heading out to a club after hours.
The Colette necklace from Stella & Dot (shown left) combines different metallic finishes with a mix of pearls in multiple sizes. A strand of glimmering rhinestones adds even more sexy sparkle. A gorgeous blush-colored grosgrain ribbon ties at the neck for a sweet finish. For even more punk rock glamour, Nicole Romano’s sumptuous Scarlet Necklace combines a thick tangle of golden-toned chains with spiky star charms and large pink pearls.
Either way, the mix of pearls and chains updates the statement jewelry we’ve been seeing with a dash of something new and ladylike. Versatile and eye-catching, these must-haves will be here for summer and well into the fall!
