When you think of statement jewellery, the pieces that spring to mind are probably big, bold, chunky and colourful - the sort of jewellery that is hard to miss. While you can't argue that it makes a statement, it's not the only kind of statement jewellery; simple, delicate necklaces can also achieve statement status.
A delicate chain necklace snaking across the collarbone can be just as much of a statement piece of jewellery, but it can also be more elegant and versatile than some of the louder pieces on the market. We've picked five of our favourite simple, statement pieces on our website right now.
Gold Melissa necklace
Proving less is more, the Melissa necklace features an oh-so-delicate filigree disk set off by a green chalcedony pendant, on an unusual, irregular chain. It's got just enough quirks to break the mould and make a statement, whilst retaining some elements of classic elegance. Take a look in more detail here.
Grey Aimee necklace
This unusual piece makes a statement, featuring a grey chalcedony pendant encased in a gold sun setting that contrasts perfectly with the colour of the stone. By keeping the rest of the necklace simple, the pendant becomes a real focus without making it a tough piece of jewellery to pull off. Discover the Aimee necklace.
