I do like the one that Amy Adams is wearing..of course, she'd look cute in just about anything...

LV said...

Truly beautiful and they look stunning on these models. Too much for this old lady.

Donnie said...

They look beautiful but I'm short and that type of necklace really overpowers me.

Christine said...

Cool!

Becky said...

I have a couple of bib necklaces. One is vintage and one I got a few months ago is made of seed beads. I don't really worry about if something is a fad or not. I adore costume jewelry and have inherited a lot from my grandmothers, Mom, and aunt. What fun they are to look at and wear som 75, 50 or even 20 years later. A slice of history.

I think they are beautiful, especially on someone with a lovely long neck/

Sixpence and A Blue Moon said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! The first one is really not me so much, but I would love to wear all the others. Like Becky, I wear what I like and heck with fads. IMHO, life is too darn short to play follow the leader. :) Lovely post! xOx

Jenny said...

I love these! My daughter wears this kind of thing often. She is tall and elegant with a long swan neck and they look amazing on her!

The only jewelry I ever wear personally is my wedding band and one necklace that I bought from Anna.

Such a beautiful stop this week Lola!

Thanks for linking.

A+

Some of these are really fantastic. I like the one on Amy Adam the most..

Melody said...

Hi Lola! They are beautiful, but I remember a similar jewelry fashion back in the 60-70's...LOL..... what
goes round comes round ;)

Jo said...

love these to bits!!! i do hope they are around for a long while ... they make quite a statement!

Hi Nora and Lola,

These are all really beautiful and thanks for sharing.
Mine would probably be my diamond engagement ring too, and maybe pearls.

Happy Thursday
Hugs

Big, bizarre. It's not a fashion I would want to wear.

I like the piece that Amy is wearing, but don't care for the others very much. My favorite piece of jewelry actually looks kind of like a bib, but it is made of silver. I found it on a sale table at a department store in Memphis around 15 years ago. It was marked down to $5! I always get compliments on it, and no one can believe that it was sooooo cheap!

Heavenly Housewife said...

I like the big bib necklaces, but I do think they are a fad, and as jewellery goes, they would wouldn't last the test of time. I am a big fan of Vera Wang's jewellery in general. She makes some beautiful pieces, but they are super expensive for costume jewellery.
My favourite piece is a ring my grandmother gave me. Its a giant garnet surrounded by baby seed pearls. It is a real statement piece.

Terra said...

another trend I will leave alone...just can't see myself wearing anything like this...

La said...

I like the one Amy Adams is wearing. I'm not sure about the others though.

Keri said...

I don't know... I don't think I could wear something like that. I've seen stranger celebrity trends though!

Mama Zen said...

Bit more than I'd usually wear!

ellen b. said...

I'm thinking I'd need a neck massage after a night of wearing one of those! I think my favorite piece of jewelery is my diamond wedding ring...

teawithonesugarplease said...

Anyone of those would be perfect for Westminster Abbey but my invite must have gotten lost in the post LOL

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

I do like the one that Amy's wearing and the grecian one...but not the first one...it looks too, too much like an actual bib.

Blessings & Aloha!
...I am sooo behind on my blogging....as you can see, since I am the last of the class to join this week's Alphabe-thursday!

Vicki aka Jake said...

Haven't tried one yet but I do like the look. Hmmm, time to go shopping:)

criticalcrass said...

these are lovely. :]

thanks for sharing.

Genie said...

The fabric bib necklaces are such a clever and attractive idea. I would be happy to wear any of them. They are all so cool. Great shots.

SueLovesCherries said...

I like all, except for the first, the Vera Wang - it looks too much like a real bib! The others look classic to me, like they will always be in style.
