Statement necklaces

(September 12, 2009)
Statement necklaces
Statement necklaces have been popular for a number of seasons. Looking through the current crop of fashion magazines you'll see that the popularity of expressive and individual accessories is still going strong. The use of a dramatic piece can really transform an outfit, easily taking it from day to night. We looked at a range of statement pieces designed by Caregos Couture jewellery which exemplify this. 
Caregos Couture has been designing bespoke jewellery in Wales since 2004. They have designed for a number of celebrities including ITV weather presenter Siân Lloyd, Fiona Phillips (formerly of GMTV), and Charlotte and Maria Church, to name but a few. Known for their individual and bespoke designs, an extensive range of statement necklace styles are currently available from Caregos Couture. Take a look at their website:
Statement Necklace 1: Cleo

This statement necklace uses lots of hammered gold plated discs, Swarovski crystal 'Jet' rounds and other assorted Swarovski crystals and pearls. The addition of chains and smaller discs give the piece movement and added interest.

Statement Necklace 1: Cleo 2

This piece is owned by ITV weather presenter Siân Lloyd and a copy by Claire Meredith, Chief In-house Designer at Caregos Couture.
A limited number of these pieces are available for purchase via the Caregos Couture website.

Statement Necklace 2: Multi Chain


This is another piece which is owned by Siân Lloyd. Multiple layers of gold plated (chunky) chains are interspersed with a selection of gold plated, hammered, discs, Swarovski pearls and Swarovski crystal faceted rounds.

The deliberately asymetrical design makes the piece really unique.

For a truly opulent and glamorous outfit, why not transform a daytime look into an evening outfit by using a solid silver statement piece.

Statement Necklaces 3: Black Multi Drop

This piece uses a heavy solid silver chain from which a range of Swarovski crystal 'Jet' drops are suspended. The central drop measures 50mm, with other drops measuring 38mm and 12mm - making a really dramatic piece.

For added interest solid silver trace chains have been added, which moves with the wearer. The piece
also uses Swarovski crystal 'Cosmic' beads and bicones.
