Have you been thinking about spring's statement jewelry since September? It’s finally here in all of its shoppable glory. Have fun with shoulder-grazing earrings, '90s-inspired chokers, and bedazzled headpieces fit for a modern-day punk princess — because you can wear all of the above with jeans, or a gown.
Major key: When it comes to earrings, the longer the better. Dangling ear pieces, like the ones seen at Gucci and Rodarte, are essential to pulling off the exaggerated-proportions trend of spring.
The chokers of our grunge-filled childhoods got an elegant makeover this season. Choose from a wide range of silver and gold pieces with eye-catching baubles and jewels.
Leave it to the genius mastermind behind Saint Laurent to make something as gaudy and over-the-top as a tiara into a chic, punk statement piece for spring.
