Statement necklaces are a fast and easy way to dress up any outfit and are an excellent outlet to express your personal style. A wide variety of statement necklaces have made way into stores following season upon season of heavily layered baubles, chilling chokers and geometric gems -- the brighter, the better.

A statement necklace is, as the name suggests, supposed to make a huge statement. While understated jewelry is a classic look, the right statement necklace can completely change an outfit, taking it from relaxed to runway-ready in seconds. Designers have been layering on jewelry lately and that means more is no longer less. Whether you choose a Cleopatra-inspired jeweled bib or a high-maintenance feather collar, the opportunities to add another level of personalization to your style are boundless.
