Statement spikes

I’m obsessed with chunky statement necklaces at the moment but rarely find pieces that tick every box. The last one I bought that floated my boat was this one from H&M a couple of months ago – mainly because it’s quite vibrant but also because it’s the perfect drop length. I’ve been on the hunt for a standout gold one since then but hadn’t spotted anything until this beauty from Zara turned my head.

I saw it the second I walked into the store and as it was the last one on the rack I naturally flung myself on it with gusto. It’s heavy and solid with a nice bit of bling on the Tiger (or is it a Cat?) face, some of-the-moment spikes and a round clasp to the back, plus it’s borderline tacky which is so me 🙂
I picked it up in the Mall of the Emirates branch for 115 dirhams, which isn’t a bad price really and knowing my luck I’m sure its already been reduced in the sale that started on Friday! On the day I took this picture I was wearing it with a black silk shirt and black blazer – the perfect jazzy addition to an otherwise drab outfit 🙂

What do you think of it? Is it something you would buy?

    Waw! This looks lovely! But I don’t think it would have caught my attention at the store. I’m just starting to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to accessories, and I’m not great at picking them either (I’m working on it, I swear). I’m still used to small simple necklaces.. But that looks amazing with the black top!

    Should start thinking of buying chunky stuff for once..

      Thanks Zein, I used to love wearing smaller daintier pieces too but that’s all gone out the window in the last few months for some reason! 🙂
