Marilyn Weller Jewelry Necklace Design
The Statement Necklace
There's been a lot of buzz this season about the trend of the "statement necklace." We simply must weigh-in on the topic with some reality and knowledge so you can decide what's best for you - with confidence.
Bold and Brawny

Jewelry Statement Necklaces

Shown here is an assortment from the runway showing the season's statement necklace. We see extra-large scale, we see heavy-weight, we see pieces that are memorable. These pieces are not easily integrated into an existing wardrobe, but rather become "outfit specific." Is this look current? Yes, but trends come and go. The trap in spending lies in the lack of longevity with these types of purchases and the relationship disconnect between the jewelry and the woman.

Women who wish to be trendy will buy pieces that are worn for a short while and then it will either sit in a drawer or be given away. Let's not forget, she will be looking at photos of herself years from now and reminiscing of similar madness we saw in the 80's!

Lovely and Luminous

Jennifers Statement Necklace
At last we feast our eyes on a true collage of feminine beauty. Jennifer wears a nautilus piece with four-strands of freshwater pearls that makes a softly-bold statement. The scale is varied with small, medium and large scale elements creating a rhythm of design that flows with all her features and body size. It is light in color to reflect her fair hair, eyes and skin-tone.

She reports to have dressed-it-down with simple T-shirt dresses and flat sandals, as well as, created up-town looks combining it with a metallic hand bag and high-heeled sandals.

Cost per wear, easy combining with a dynamic relationship between the woman and the jewelry spell GORGEOUS! It's just that simple - or at least it's supposed to be; and it is with Marilyn Weller Jewelry.

Bold and Confident
