7 Accessories to Replace the Statement Necklace

Those of you who know me know that I really bought into the statement necklace a few years ago. I even participated in that ever-famous Pinterest jewelry display hack.

Well, things have changed since I started blogging 5 years ago; statement necklaces are starting to ween themselves out only to be replaced by other accessories that have begun to steal the limelight lately.

These, days it would appear that there are so many more options we have that take on a sort of ‘minimalistic’ approach.

Ring stacks:
