This season, when it comes to jewellery, bigger is most definitely better. Just as we all imagine a French woman to effortlessly wear a scarf with a gallic shrug, there are some in this world who have the ability to find that perfect statement jewellery piece to take their look to another level. From adding an element to a carefully constructed look or, for those who take their gems seriously, building an outfit from the jewellery down, there is a myriad of choice from gobstopper rings to chandelier earrings, from golden chokers to arm dropping cuffs. Bold, bright or kitsch these pieces take guts and attitude but, if you’re brave enough to take the plunge, they can create an effortlessly stylish look with one statement piece.
