I heart chunky necklaces

I've never really been into "fine jewelry" (the only thing I want from Tiffany's is a rock;) but I'm a total sucker for oversized costume jewelry! Here are some of my current favorites in the necklace department.

J. Crew Bubble NecklaceJ. Crew Beaded Paisley Necklace (available in April)

Banana Republic Coral Cabochon Bib Necklace

Forever 21 Faceted Bead Necklace (only $7.80!)

And of course the classic Kenneth Jay Lane Coral Branch Necklace, as seen below in Kate Spade's ad campaign.

This is the problem I have with chunky necklaces: once you've worn it once or twice, it's "oh, you're wearing that necklace again, huh?" As much as I would like to think of something as a "signature piece," I wonder how it really looks to others.

Hmmm, good point! I guess you're right- I have a huge turquoise necklace that I'm careful about wearing too often...but I still love 'em)

I do so love those J.Crew pieces. Who knew? You will love this look from New York Magazine Look Book.

Perfect Bound- you're right- I LOVE this! Thanks so much for sharing! The orange is SO gorgeous against the black. (and I love that it's cheap;)
