I love statement necklaces, they can really add quite a bit to an outfit and help give an outfit the "finishing touch".
Here are a few pictures of me wearing my favorite statement necklaces....

A few of my favorite places to look for statement necklaces include:
www.ebay.com (search for statement necklace)
www.etsy.com (search for statement necklace)
***www.baublebar.com is probably my favorite, they have some very unique statement necklaces. I have personally never ordered anything from baublebar but the necklaces look very well made. Average necklace price is around is around $20-$30 but can range up to ~$200.
So if you are wanting a statement necklace that will last you a long time try www.baublebar.com and other high-end department stores...also there are some quality pieces on www.etsy.com and www.ebay.com if you are willing to pay a little extra. Necklaces from the other sites I have listed are cheap and therefore cheaply made so you do not always know how long a necklace you purchase for $7 will actually last you. I have had necklaces from Old Navy (for example) last for years but others also purchased from Old Navy come apart within a couple wears. It is always hard to determine the quality of a necklace when purchasing online...I suggest shopping at your local mall before ordering a necklace online.
