Affordable Statement Necklaces

Now that it's absolutely freezing my get up in the last few weeks has been jumpers and more jumpers. Whilst I love the simplicity of jumpers, the ease of just throwing them on and not having to worry about layering up, I think you'll agree with me that sometimes they can look quite plain and in need of some sprucing up. Hence why I love throwing on a sparkly necklace at this time of the year! However, am I the only one who thinks that the prices on the high street, up to £20 for a necklace, are a bit excessive? I've seen quite a lot of similar necklaces on ebay for a lot cheaper, yet I was always dubious about whether the quality would be up to scratch. However, after trying these necklaces from Tmart I can assure you that cheaper doesn't always mean that the quality suffers!



The first necklace I tried is this lovely sky blue statement piece*, as seen here. It's not at all clunky or chunky as I thought it might possibly be. It's adorned with blue gems in a leaf/flower design, with the clear rhinestones adding some lovely detail. My pictures don't do the necklace justice, it's much more sparkly in real life. The build quality is also just as good as something you'll get from the highstreet, the jewels are clued down securely so there isn't much chance of them falling off. The individual clasps between the jewels also seem to be secured safely. The only negative I can think of is that the clasp cannot be adjusted much and the necklace does come up quite high on me.



The second option I tried is this more dainty crystal emerald necklace with golden detailing*, as seen here. The emerald gems on this necklace are exquisite, they have a really lovely shine! This necklace feels quite lightweight and I love the elegant look. This necklace wears a lot lower than than the first necklace but I think it suits the design more. As the previous necklace the clasp on this one can't be adjusted much either.


I thought I would also throw in a few pictures of the necklaces on (I actually had fun trying on my jumpers, they were so cosy!). I think the blue necklace goes well with all colours really, as the blue gems really stand out and provide a nice contrast. Although I especially love how it looked with the fluffy white jumper!


I think the green necklace goes well with paler shades, especially the camel coloured jumper, as the green gems provide a nice effect. I really like whole Autumnal vibe it gives off too.

Overall, I think these necklaces are absolutely lovely and I would really recommend you check out Tmart/Ebay for statement pieces before heading straight for the high street. The shipping wasn't too bad either, I think I received them within two weeks. However, I have noticed that the prices have increased on Tmart as they were around £3 when I last checked, so although they are still great value for money I hope that it's just a temporary increase.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

  10. I had a set of makeup brushes from Tmart before and they were surprisingly decent quality! I had no idea they have statement necklaces too but I love both designs.

  23. OMG, I can`t believe they`re so cheap, they look amazing and you`d pay at least 15£ in a high-street store. I quite like plain clothes, so I always love adding statement necklaces and earrings to make an outfit stand out. Sadly, when I moved I lost a lot of them, so now I need to renew my collection:( Will definitely check these!

    1. Agreed! I was really interested to see how they would par up to a high street necklace and there wasn't a difference. I tend to stick to simple things on an everyday basis so these are great for me. Aww no that must have been annoying! xx
