Christmas season is my favourite time of the year and when it’s over, unlike many others, I refuse to forget about the glitz and the glamour. To avoid winter blues, I suggest continuing wearing your extravagant and precious jewels!
Over the years, I’ve written about a number of glamorous Canadian precious, semi-precious and costume jewellery designers and here are my Top 5 picks along with my favourite statement necklaces.
Who says a statement necklace needs to be big? A tasteful and unique pendant makes a BIG statement when worn with a classic outfit. ANNE SPORTUN knows how to make a dainty piece of a precious stone make a large impact.
Another designer pushing boundaries in statement necklaces is MARYAM KEYHANI with her namesake label established in 2011. There isn’t one necklace I’m not in love with but I’ve never seen anyone use fabric within a necklace like her. Absolutely to die for!
The Montreal based designer calls her unique and admirable pieces of neck art Colliers. By combining everything from brooches, beads, leather, feathers, fabrics and metals, I’d say CHARLOTTE HOSTEN is the ‘it’ designer of affordable and fabulously gorgeous statement necklaces.
When you hear Rebecca’s story behind her jewellery line you won’t only fall in love with the designer but with the grit, passion and modernity of the label. The most up-and-coming name in costume jewellery, it’s not a surprise REBEKAH PRICE is one of my absolute favourites.
A necklace speaks a thousand words, that’s what I say. And I like to wear jewellery that represent me. A statement necklace doesn’t have to be big or sparkly or made of the most expensive metals and stones, as its name states, it is a statement. REDSOFA JEWELLERY creates necklaces that I instantly connect with and that make me smile!
