I never really got into the chunky necklace trend (I still always think Chico's when the subject of chunky jewelry comes up. *shudder*), but my feelings may be evolving. I'm trying not to buy as many clothes (OMG I KNOW. This is the most difficult thing I've done in a long time), so having a few pieces of statement jewelry to change up outfits from last year seems like a smart idea.
Case in point, this necklace I recently got from Anthro. I feel super awkward taking pictures of myself, but here it is nonetheless for empirical evidence:
It's big without being overpowering, and it adds a necessary something to my black v-neck tee, dark jeans, and black pumps. Plus the colors go with almost everything in my closet. I can't quite get used to it, though, as I generally just wear a eensy diamond necklace my parents gave to me when I went off to college (cute story alert: it was the first present my dad ever gave my mom, so it's about 30 years old).
While I'm still not a total convert, I found these other gems (pun time is fun time) that I've now got my eye on.

And not like J.Crew needs any more of my money, but...
Have you gotten on the chunky jewelry bandwagon?
