A substantial neckpiece, or "statement necklace", is a necklace that you wear only on its own. They have so much detailing, can be substantial in size, very decorative and ornate, can be worn at varyings length by adding an extra jump ring.
Wear them over bare skin with an open shirt, or over a closed turtle neck, or button down shirt. Wear them with a beautiful evening gown or cocktail dress.
Depending on the design, do not wear overpowering earrings--keep the earrings simple as the eyes will be drawn away from the neckpiece. A complimenting statement ring would flow very nicely as the eyes are drawn from the necklace to the hands.
Owning and wearing a statement necklace adds instant glamour and completes any outfit. Whether you wear a plain white T-shirt with a blazer, a black dress, corporate suit or evening dress, adding a "statement necklace" will transform the look of what you wear from simple to WOW.You can wear them from day to night.
A word of advice, it is not recommended to wear other large pieces of jewelry with statement necklaces as it would look too overpowering since the eyes would be drawn away from the necklace. Definitely a wise investment for a piece you will wear for many years.
