Necklaces can easily take an outfit from day into night

Apr '08
The new status accessory this season is the statement necklace. From the catwalk to the red carpet, the necklace is enjoying a revival. Leading this comeback are Hollywood's starlets ... and they were making a fashion statement at this year's Oscars with gorgeous looks for the neck.

Nicole Kidman wore a simple black gown accented with a dramatic diamond sautoir necklace; and Keri Russell's champagne strapless gown was accessorized beautifully by strands of marquis-cut diamonds. Laura Linney's yellow gold pendant necklace lent drama and elegance to a black strapless Michael Kors gown.

But women who don't have blockbuster budgets or fashion entourages can still borrow ideas from tinseltown and add drama to their own wardrobe. Jewelry is the key.

"Necklaces can easily take an outfit from day into night," says Jeff Roberts, President and CEO of the Independent Jewelers Organization (IJO). "Necklaces can also help women get more play from fundamental pieces in their wardrobe, providing a variety of looks."

When choosing quality pieces to add to your jewelry collection, select styles that are offered by Master IJO Jewelers.

Master IJO Jewelers are hand picked by the Independent Jewelers Organization and adhere to an ethical code of conduct offering the honesty, trust and integrity no other jeweler can provide.

Also consider the following tips from the experts at IJO when buying a necklace or any other piece of jewelry:
- Pay attention to scale: A woman's stature can play a role in the necklace she chooses. A large necklace may "swim" on a woman with a petite frame. Other women may be able to support such a necklace, where a smaller piece may look out of proportion.
