I love statement accessories: earrings and necklaces and collars and bags... you get the picture. I've been going through a phase of really loving necklaces at the moment and it seems like every time I simply go into Primark for a browse I can't help but pick one up. They're such a great price and whilst the quality isn't always amazing, for one season they last well and perk up my outfit choices.

The first necklace I spotted was the ornate gold bib at the top of these images. Dave actually paid for it though as part of my birthday shopping gift. It was only £4 which I thought was ridiculously cheap when you consider that something similar would have an extra £20 on the price tag if I'd bought it from Topshop. It's quite weighty but looks amazing with practically everything. 

The brooch-stone necklace was something I saw in a magazine at first and thought 'I like that'. It was £5 which, considering one of the smaller stones has fallen out of it already, was perhaps a little pricey if it's going to fall apart easily but I've been wearing it with grey and black tops to just give them a little more sparkle. Whilst it's super-dressy it really compliments a super casual outfit.

When I saw the gold tri-band bib necklace I knew it was something I would be able to throw over everything so I bought it in silver too just because I liked it so much. They were £3 each which is really cheap and I like how they're really plain so you can literally just throw them on and instantly look like you've made a little bit of an effort without over doing it.

The gold band with the textured chain was a complete impulse purchase that I bought with Clare when I was in Birmingham. She bought one too. I think it looks really smart with a crisp white shirt or just peeking through under a collar (I'm not one for wearing my jewellery over the top of my shirts). It was £3.

Have you picked up an statement necklaces lately?
