The 10 Best statement necklaces
Bold is best when it comes to neckwear this year. Here's our pick of the stand-out pieces on the high street and online
The devil's in the detail in this head-turning, nature-inspired piece. We love the intricate design of the golden leaves amid the pretty coloured beads.
This cheerful necklace from the high-street favourite was online entertainment editor Daisy Wyatt's pick of the bunch before she looked at the price tag, proving that making a statement doesn't need to break the bank.
Cos are the masters of pared-down but interesting chic, and this unusual piece made from knotted metal tubes is a case in point. The satin tie means you can alter the length which combined with the neutral tones means it's super-versatile.
4. Kenneth Jay Lane Hammered gold-plated bib necklace - FASHION EDITOR'S PICK
This gold-plated number proves you don't need to be dripping in jewels to make a statement. Elegant and eye-catching, it'll look great with a little black dress (LBD) for a party or peeking out from the open collar of a white shirt for work.
In mythology dragons symbolise power. Channel that kick-ass vibe in your jewellery. This fun colourful piece will brighten up a plain jumper. Fire-breathing optional.
Pretty, on-trend – pink is hot this season – but not too in your face, this Zara effort shows why the Spanish chain has become a go-to place for affordable, fashion-forward neckwear.
Hand-crafted in India, all Buba's necklaces have the wow-factor. This geometric design embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls is no exception. We love the colour pop of the fluro beads. Team with a plain top for maximum impact.
No bling here. The brushed brass and pure cotton cord give this Kenyan-made necklace a muted rustic look. Pop it under your collar to add understated interest to this season's ubiquitous shirt and jumper combo.
Black and gold as a combo feels right in winter. This great value fabric-backed number will look amazing with an LBD at a Christmas party. Add killer heels and some equally out-there earrings.
If money were no object, we'd snap up this out-of-the-ordinary design from the French fashion house. The flowers, made from enamelled brass and studded with purple crystals, almost grow out of the chain. Wear with something plain to give it the showing it deserves.
