Make a Statement!

It’s been a long time in coming but, at last, the statement-necklace trend has hit mainstream. And, while we love all jewels, it’s refreshing to see gorgeous necklaces in the news. The beauty of the necklace is its versatility… whether long and layered, or collar-length, it looks beautiful sparkling beneath an open-collar blouse or suit, paired with the hot trend of asymmetrical necklines, or accenting a simple shift. Fine jewelry should be timeless… and this is, indeed, a timeless trend!

It ‘s interesting to see the trend develop… from the red carpets and runways… To the news (Michelle Obama, especially, helped drive this!):


But, regardless of the source, we love–and agree wholeheartedly!–that the “statement” necklace has become this holiday’s “it” list accessory. GlamChic advises to “stock up on statement necklaces”, while Marie Claire (and others) have been promoting the trend throughout the year. During this holiday season, however, I especially noticed MSNBC‘s coverage of the trend, and (that Vogue-driven online powerhouse), included statement necklaces among the top must-have items this season… Their example: a crystal and silver-plated bronze version for $1,740.

A pretty piece, indeed. But, as all jewelry lovers know, those plated items have a limited shelf life. Sooooo… I offer up a favorite Sonia B. piece–entirely in precious materials like sapphires and white gold (for $300 less than the bronze-plated necklace!). Here is a necklace that is in the moment and on-trend but, crafted in 14k white gold and gorgeous rose-cut sapphires, designed to last a lifetime to last a lifetime (or more!):




  1. that looks beautiful and very versatile! Nice!

  2. This is something I would absolutely wear…and not just for a special occasion. This would be a everyday piece for me. This is just a stunning piece of jewelry.

  3. Sonia, Where are you on ShopNBC this Christmas???
