Some of the earliest statement jewelry was found in Egypt - collar necklaces, dangling earrings, and cylindrical rings were all prevalent in Egyptian jewelry boxes. Modern day statement jewelry is big, bold, and full of many elements from previous decades. Today, we enjoy pieces that incorporate the glitz and glam of the '30s and '40s, and the colors and styles of the '60s. But most of all, we love statement jewelry because of their perpetual ability to make heads turn.
The addition of a statement jewelry is a great way to add some punch to your ensemble. The main key to pulling off big, bold and extravagant pieces, is to keep the rest of your outfit somewhat minimal. My favorite thing about this trend is that it means the rest of your outfit doesn't have to work as hard. I like to keep things nice and simple therefore I opted for a LBD so that I can showcase the beauty of this colorful necklace.
Whatever your preference may be, there is a statement piece that can mold seamlessly into your everyday style. Experiment until you find a look that works for you. There is no need to coordinate other jewelry where these accessories are concerned, throw on one piece of statement jewelry with whatever you're wearing and you're good to go. It's that easy! Give this trend a try and see what a little glitter can do for your ensemble!

The hardest part for me wasn't the jewelry actually but the red lipstick, this was my first time wearing it and hubby thought I looked mean =)
