Big is most definitely better when it comes to jewelry this season and the brighter and more gaudy the colours the louder the statement. As the season is focusing on colour block dresses and getting away from busy prints, you are going to need some pretty flamboyant jewelry to make sure you don’t fade into the background. And what better than one of these crystal necklaces we are featuring below? The best thing about huge statement jewelry is that typically they will have a multitude of colours within the piece so you can mix and match them with many items in your wardrobe. Plus they will enhance a boring outfit and take it to a new level, which is what the colour blocking trend is all about. You only need one good statement necklace as well as they can go with so many items so pick one that has many different colours in it and lots of contrasting textures.
