Suits comprise my daily uniform working in a formal office in D.C.
The corporate look limits us to 50 shades of grey and black.
Men use neckties to add flare while women look to scarves and jewelry to add a pop of color and personality to an otherwise conservative outfit.
I love gemstones – big ones that make a bold statement.
Heavy gemstones are not meant to be worn 15 hours a day – so I combined a piece of braided, nylon cord used to secure my boat to our dock with a six inch strand of flex wire beaded with 40mm red coral.
To add the final touch of comfort and convenience, I decided to secure the ends with a magnet clasp. Voila – the perfect statement necklace for a working woman.
The collar length of 20-22 inches creates the perfect pairing with a suit jacket or cardigan. These large gemstone statement necklaces are well suited for a long day at the office.
