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…

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.
