Would you like to step out of your comfort zone? Do you like if someone finds your outfit unique, interesting or passionate?
If your answer to these question is YES, then you definitely are for statement jewelry!
For many many years people have worn unusual clothing or accessories to show who they are or highlight their positions. We know Egyptian people liked huge and beautiful necklaces or bracelets with colorful semiprecious stones. Or many people believed that religious pieces or symbols would keep the devil far from them. No matter why, until now people seemed to wear accessories to make statements about who they are.

HOW DO YOU RECONGIZE IT?
People do judge others based on their appearance whether or not we like it. As soon as, they take a look at the other they will put them into their boxes created in their mind about what kind of people you were. They will immediately have a picture of you, your personality and your values.
Those who are wearing statement jewelry surely will expect statements from the other, since it is meant to attract people and to increase self-confidence.
Statement jewelry is usually big: thick cuffs, chandelier earrings, bulky pendants are favorable. Statement jewelry is originally big to draw attention to itself and the wearer. But be careful how to combine them, and also take into consideration your physical appearance. Petite woman might look strange and comic with huge jewelry.
Since statement jewelry is large, wear only one piece of statement jewelry at a time. Wearing too many big designs might give a confusing look and might not look classy.

3. Be careful how you combine jewerly

b. Less makeup sometimes is more. Keep your make-up colors solid and simple.

I found this great and usable table on Ebay, and it is a great help.
|These tend to be short, wide, and colorful. As such, they go great with high or scoop neck shirts. A high neck gives the necklace a backdrop whereas a scoop neck outlines the necklace. The idea is simply to wear a shirt that won’t interrupt the round appearance of the necklace.|
|These are often colorful and may also be multilayered. Since they go so far below the neck, most fashion gurus recommend skipping a belt.|
|These are rings that usually feature big, colorful gemstones. They are excellent statement pieces because they can be worn with any outfit.|
|These earrings are very fashionable. They draw lots of attention to the face, so it is important to use caution when applying makeup. Let the earrings speak for themselves. In addition, choose a hairstyle that keeps the hair out of the way.|
Cuffs and Bangles
|These thick bracelets come in a seemingly endless variety of colors and patterns. Wear them with short or three-quarter sleeves. Let them take control of the wrists.|
