Statement jewelry isn’t a new concept, but this year it’s all about hardware. Bold metal pieces in the form of chunky necklaces, bangles, and statement earrings may prove bigger is better in the coming seasons. One of the coolest things about these pieces is you don’t have to drop a lot of money on them. You can scour your local thrift stores for super unique metal pieces. Here are a couple of our favorites inspired by the runways.
