I adored statement necklaces loooong before they became a universal wardrobe staple. In high school when everyone rocked the Tiffany Bean on a delicate silver strand, I scoured the Ocean City boardwalk for the biggest, chunkiest, loudest piece I could get my well-manicured hands on. In fact, I had a friend who coined my taste in costume jewelry as "huge and hideous." I liked it that way. Still do, to a large extent, which is probably why my eye is so drawn to this Givenchy work of art.
I'll concede this particular piece certainly isn't for the fashion-faint-of-heart, but I'd love to know what you think! xo
