Bold is beautiful


Christmas is that time of the year when we must bring out the big guns; AKA the statement necklaces! 

For Christmas season, it is totally acceptable to exaggerate a little. It is time, now or never, for big earrings, bold cocktail rings and statement necklaces. The latter is what's on today’s agenda. 

All year-round, most women love dainty jewellery that conforms with any outfit. They are lovely, but they don’t stand out. The statement pieces that are called into action NOW are precisely the opposite. They are big and bold, and they are not supposed to get lost in the outfit. And they won’t. Contrasts and breaks of style are very welcome – and so are mixes of patterns, materials, and applications! The jewellery doesn’t (and shouldn’t) be in line with the outfit. The pearls or gemstones of the necklace subside on sequined dresses, embroidered jumpers, and romantic laces. For a more party-appropriate styling, they cover nearly completely the bare skin of the décolleté – almost like a scarf!  

We hand-picked some fabulous statement necklaces for you to glam-up your Christmas look so that not even Santa will have so many heads turning:

Rainbow necklaces


Embellish your neck with a cascade of colourful crystals for a joyful statement look wearing the creations of Swedish designer Carline Svedbom or the Austrian Swarovski. The multi-coloured statement necklaces will add sparkle and glamour to your Christmas party look.



A pearl necklace is timeless and chic by excellence. For Christmas, wear several rows of big white beads like the bold Gucci necklace, or grey pearls that are also very elegant. Kate Spade gold chain with pearls will look fantastic with your LBD, and Oscar de la Renta's necklace that combines white pearls and Swarovski crystals will make you feel like a queen.

The Choker


Chokers are back with full power this winter. The regal necklaces elongate your neck, giving you an elegant allure. Whether in crystals like the beautiful Alessandra Rich, H&M or Swarovski chokers or with a black ribbon very Belle Epoque-like, like the ones by Erdem or & Other Stories, these statement necklaces can dress up any outfit.

Bib necklaces


This season, wear statement bib necklaces like the ones we showed you in the article All the accessories you need to go through fall 2019 like a glitterati. The bold jewels by Swarovski, Alessandra Rich or Collezione Alessandro cover nearly your entire décolleté like glamorous bibs, making the simplest dress look super party-like.



Feminine flower necklaces make beautiful Christmas accessories. Finish your party look with a bunch of flowers like the Simone Erto or Collezione Alessandro necklaces, or wear a very stylish Swarovski creation with rotating flowers that have a vintage yet very modern flair.



It may be cold outside, but you'll be feeling like at a tropical beach wearing the statement necklaces with golden shells by Tohum Design or Christie Nicolaides. Collezione Alessandro's piece that seems like a coral garden will add a splash of colour and glam to your look. 

All that glitters is gold


Gold accessories and Christmas party outfits are a match made in heaven! Whether you choose modern designs like Noritamy necklaces or a romantic piece by Malaika Raiss or Christie Nicolaides, your glittering bling will look fab next to the Christmas tree lights.

Shine on!
